Has anyone else had any problems with Great Dane hiring to raise production, then quickly firing to make it look like they're doing it with fewer people??? Sounds to me like they're taking advantage of the desperate need for jobs in Scott County. Some people in this county are having problems even surviving, are the choices really down to accept being treated this way or stay on unemployment. This county is having problems already, with out them taking advantage of the men and women who are in desperate need of employment... Just wanted to try and get some imput..

Sounds like a business doing everything it can to keep jobs from going over seas...maybe you should start a union...that'll drive up wages and then they'll pull out and leave for good.

they hire druggies and work them... then when they need to get rid of people... they use a failed drug test as an excuse...

well, I know they hire druggies and wiggers and not people who have years of factory experience, but it sounds like they are a sorry place to work for anyways.

I would have loved to have been treated like a dog, you have been mistreated until you worked at Hartco, but now you will never know, and your lucky at that.

Typical example of a worthless sack of $hit in this county. I'm not in any f'ing union, live here, and pull nearly 6 figures per year working for myself. If you f'ing lazy skank terds would get off your a$$es and get an education you'd have a job...but that's just it isn't it? You don't want a job. How many of you f-tards are just sitting around waiting for your welfare check to run out before you even attempt to do anything productive. I hate that any of my tax dollars go to you people....what a waste of space you all are.

What a joke!! I would be ashamed to say anything like this. Your in the wrong forum barking up the wrong tree with that welfare stuff. Nobody said anything about drawing free money, they're talking about working for it and not being treated fairly. Your probably some rich jackass who's mommy and daddy paid for them to have everything they wanted in their life!! Some people have families to help support when they graduate high school, that means they have to put other things first!! You must be a real piece of work.

And BTW, Scott County's Great Dane Factory is their lowest paying facility they have. They pay us nothing just because they can, and there's nothing we can do about it. We can't necessarily turn down a hard job that pays nothing because chances of finding any other job at all are slim. So let's not act like they don't have the money to do it.

and the people in this county keep on electing the same families to run this county. You say you want change but the people in this county just won't stick together, too busy stabbing each other in the back. This web site is proof of that. The businesses here love that!

This is nothing new to this plant. It is exactly the way they have done business since the first day the doors opened when it was Fruehauf. It was one of the best jobs I ever had as far as the people I worked with, but trust me, it will never be a job to retire from. Use your time and experience here as a stepping stone to a better job, and move on as soon as you can. Pretty soon Great Dane will move on, and Utility or another mfg will buy it out and it starts all over again. Last I heard, an A Welder makes less money now than in the early 90's.

Well when you asholes voted out the union so you could pocket a .25 cent an hour raise. Don't say that was walbash because the contact was pass on to New ownership. If thats not true just test my knowledge. Piss on Scott co to many suck asses and druggies.

a certified welder barely clears 12.00 per hour with experience but it is a decent environment to work in. They let people go that miss work or do shoddy work. There is a STRICT attendance policy and believe it or not they stick to it. Also, they have to prove you failed a drug test so if thats why they fired ya, so if a failed drug test is why they let ya go, then you failed a drug test. plain and simple. Don't whine and complain when you get caught doing wrong.
