"The management is completely incompetent and short sighted. I was hired at the beginning of the year and was required to work mandatory overtime for weeks. Then they had a layoff.They continued to take sales orders and work us like slaves without any thought of our family life. I was rehired and was again working mandatory 10 hours daily and Saturdays. At a recent meeting our manager stated that again because of more back orders were required to work 12 hours a day mandatory. I could not work 60 hours a week and was promptly fired. HR manager is a liar and does not care about the employees. He tells new 2nd shift employees that they can move to first shift when they get hired and then tells them they can't move to the other shift. The new management and HR has bungled the factory so they cannot keep employees. They fired many managers people and can't figure out how to project sales to have a reasonable turn around time. So instead, they work the employees like animals and require unreasonable hours, i.e. 4:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and because it is one of the only places to work in a rural area a lot of employees are stuck."
