What you just described is the Hallmark of 3g. Kraft was once a great company now its going to crash and burn. If you can get out of there now, please do so and save yourself the stress of wondering if your head is next on the chopping block!
Word is to make the months of April and May look as good as possible as far as financials go. Books gotta look better for Q2.
Fort Smith Arkansas plant: the first six months they started off with cutting salary positions, then cut our maintenance teams, and outsourced our shipping department with DHL. The next six months they changed our 401k from 75% to 50% match and done away with adding to our pensions. The next year has started out with more salary cuts, adding and combining jobs on the floor, cut our maintenance team again, not replacing workers who retire and hiring the worst temporary employees that Fort Smith Arkansas has to offer. Everyone is fearful of layoffs and losing their jobs; so they are looking for other jobs. Management has the mindset that they dont care if you are a 20 year employee who never misses work and has been a good employee for them; if you can only do 1 or 2 jobs; they don't need you and will walk you out in hopes they can find some temporary employee that will half way do 4 to 5 jobs, and risk customer quality, create potential recalls all to save a dollar.
