Transferring people from job to job within the organization is the philosophy at Arcadia Plastics. Management believes that job rotation deters employees from feeling that they are stagnating in their jobs and promotes a better understanding of the company. The computer services personnel typically work for 6 months as an operator, 1 year as a systems developer, 6 months as a database administrator, and 1 year in systems maintenance. At that point, they are assigned to a permanent position.
