    Good income from a company operating in a challenging industry

    Maintenance Technician Electric (Current Employee) Fairfield, AL (US)

    ProsGreat Income for Blue Collar worker, Good insurance benefits, Hard to get fired once you get in, extremely safety conscious.

    ConsRotating schedules, tough on family, work schedule dictates life, very very poor training. Your skills degrade year after year. Union officials worry more about feathering their own nest and defending poor worker standards than promoting a good workforce for the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more responsibility to workers, provide incentive for cost savings, provide continuing education for employee fields, demand more expertise in management, about management, and pay them for that,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good job at a dying company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat pay, and benefits for the amount of work.

    ConsEverything is dirty, the air, the desks, the city, the management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake an investment in the people who are trying to get some work done. Quit supporting the lazy managers with the 70's attitude who recall fondly the days of drinking and sleeping on the job where women weren't allowed.....
