Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) says"This place has to much conflict of interest. I was not once trained on my actual position they refused to until I was injured on the job , management is very very poor, unprofessional and rude including the line leads. The turnover rate is extremely high because they work you like a dog and talk to people with no respect, so people quit everyday. Basically if they feel like you are a threat to them they will do anything to get you to quit or fired. I wouldn't refer this job to someone I disliked it's very inhumane and it is horrible. Cons: Everything but the work hours."

Inspector (Former Employee) says"Illegal immigrants, allows employees to be on drugs while working and upper management knows about it and some employees smell like weed. Hot place to work in the summer and that's when managment disappears. They work you to death and it can be hard to take vacation days. They will fire some people with attendance issues but not others. There are people not on FMLA that miss several days and leave early and still keep their jobs. There was this one woman that had a bad shoulder and parked in hamdicap spots which is not a real handicap but the company allowed it. Most corrupt company ever. Oh and they feed nasty papa johns pizza every weekend."
