I heard that Gates layed off a bunch of people in Versailes, MO. I wonder if they are going to start laying off people here. Anyone heard anything?

My husband drives a truck, this past he only ran 3 days... not good. Most of his runs are with steel makers. automotive. Also there are two steel plants in Indiana shutting down before chirstmas. Not sure how many will follow.

Get your stock out of the company now . The people the keep there stock in Rowe lost every thing.. one man lost over $150,000.00 probley more if he had took it out before 9-11.

I thought they already got rid of all the temps. It is not considered a real lay off until, they start laying off real employees, temps don't count.
good job

Gates has never had a layoff of full-time employees. Not many places around town can say that. They take pride in that and will do alot to make sure it stays like that.

My husband works there, and we like the health care plan. He started 10 years ago, he did not start as a temp. He is glad they finally wised up and got rid of all the temps.

Temps are cheap labor, if you don't want to be cheap labor get a real job with your own benefits.

Maybe you should talk to your husband they don't hire ppl in full time right off the bat anymore been a while too since they did that that is a major problem there right now also they hire ex cons now and just about anyone who will pull even it they are way too old not saying there is a age limit on who can pull there but it is a hard job get better after you work there for a month or two and work the sore out of you but it takes a state of mind to work there and right now they way the people that are your boss treat you it is hard not to want to quit i have seen one boss who i will not name try to get a person fired because they disagreed with a plan that he was heading there is a lot of stress due to this job and it might be better if someone took a lesser paying job in short we are tired of the shitbagges at gates go work at walmart plz
