Yeah, you're probably right, they'll be there long after I'm gone, taking money out of your back pocket also, and the back door.

if you say so, why should you work your butt off just for a fist full of dollars.

IMO, those who DO work their butt off should be recognized, instead of just pushed to the side like they dont matter. It seems pretty funny to me that the one who sit up there and dont do shit, are still there, and are getting a check! They should be fired. Bottom line. Why they still have a job beats the hell out of me. They dont show up half the time or call in, and when they are there they dont do shit but run their mouth and gossip. The people that can fire them dont, that just doesnt make sense to me--they let them keep their job and act like they are the o' so important ones and let them get by with shit. Its ridiculous!

One thing that would make it better is random drug testing. Another when something goes wrong with a part or whatever let the WHOLE plant know so they can watch for it. LACK OF COMMUNICATION. More quality control. Everyone who works there should be on the same team and work together not against one another.

I too agree with "Sassy", if they would do random drug testing, half the freakin' place would be gone! Too many people up there are doing one thing or another, its not fair for them to keep their job. Its also a safety hazard...they need to straighten up that place big time before they have a lawsuit on their hands.

I worked at Plastene(Siegel-Roberts)for a lot of years.Years ago it was a thriving business. Of course, that was back when foreman like Jim Knight and Larry Thacker,Charlie Collins, Louis Miller, Larry Keown,Charles Johnson,Larry Lindley and Jimmy Plunkett ran Plant 1. They, along with many of the older employees were what kept that factory going. Of course, with time passing and many of the younger people taking over, it's not done so well. Even back when I worked there, there were some who kissed butt to get ahead on the totem pole and the management was more about the work than how their foremen dressed. However,the drug issue started some time ago and has gotten worse with a lot of the hiring of so many young people.Drugs are like alcohol, it,s going to take some real effort to get them under control. Kinda like society has done with smoking in many places.

"I Know" is right, I did forget Gene Williams, he was a real good supervisor. Sorry! Plastene has had a lot of good workers who have moved on to other jobs and a lot of very loyal, hard-working people who have died while they were still employed there. The place will never be the same. However, for the ones who are still working there, I hope it survives this awful mess with the economy. I still have many good friends who work there.

Charlie Collins,Jim Knight,Lewis Miller,Larry Keown, Larry Lindly,John & Donna Mongomery, John & Diane Fielder,Bryce & Faye Walker, Vickie Douglas,Mary Keown, Gene Williams, Larry Mayberry all hard working Supervisors for this company. Some have passed away, retired, some move away,some found better pay, few are left that have that drive to do a good job and treat the crew with respect and stand up for them when needed. Mr. Charlie once said I treat the other person like I want to be treated and I get respect and workers who are happy work harder. Now they say if your mad they think you will work harder. Are they CRAZY? I knoW what I want to do for someone who has made me mad...NOTHIN

Different breed of supervisors now. Just keep trying to think positive that's all a person can do and pray.
