total crap, tutco is the worst employer in the state of tennessee.

They have a layoff every year, the work is being sent to mexico, yet still says it comes from cookeville tennessee.

Phil like to spend money on bull.

When do they lay off?

Their parking lots are still full every day at both locations on Gould Drive.

Tutco is never going to change they give job's to temp's when time come's! But they still have a few employee's at the west building . If they like U U get the better job's and everyone know's that there. It's who U are the good employee's are passed . Most time the employee's geta raise and some of the rest does the better job's .

If Cookeville got a Target I would lose my damned mind. Love that store. That would be a good spot for it too.

So what did Tutco do with the $50,000 grant? Pay for the move of the products that went to Mexico?
