Operator (Current Employee) – Clarksville, TN – August 23, 2016
When I started out as a temp there, work was great and I had everything I wanted. I had pretty good pay, first shift, and was not required to work any overtime on weekends. Overtime for me then was voluntary and not mandatory. I had a good balance of my work and personal life. However when I got hired on, I worked a lot of overtime and my personal life was not good. I worked all the time it seemed like and rarely had any days off or free time. I didn't have balance in my life. I went to second shift after I got hired on, my pay went up and I got benefits, and I worked constantly. I worked an entire month without a single day off, no joke. Sure, I was making good money working all that overtime but I didn't have any free time at all to spend it. On second shift when I got hired on full time, the supervisors would always blame our line if we didn't reach our goal, even though it wasn't our fault. Our group lead cussed at us and the work environment was very face paced, negative, and stressful since we were getting blamed for something that wasn't our fault. The hardest part of my job was going back to work every single day without a day off with a positive attitude. The most enjoyable part of my job was definitely my co-workers. The people were so nice, funny, and friendly. I enjoyed getting to know them and work with them. I learned that factory work isn't for everybody and that it's very hard, but what made me go back was the people I was working with.
30 minute lunches, good benefits, friendly place
Work a lot of overtime on weekends when hired on, 10 minute breaks
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Elizabethtown, KY – July 10, 2016
My assignment was Inventory. I got a refresher course of Excel, only because it had been a few years since college, and having to use that program. While working on the inventory project, I was taught to do reports on maintenance hours. My boss was great. If something personal came up, he would let me make my hours up.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – April 14, 2016
You can advance as quickly as you want as positions become available within the hourly workforce. Going to first level management position is difficult without at least a two year college degree. Typically you clock in go to your assigned station and begin your shift, any changes in assignments or goals are also passed on at this time along with any problems from the previous shift. Once you get to know your co-workers you will find them to be a fun group overall. Usually there is all the over time that you want.
Uniforms provided, available overtime, double time on sunday

Production Worker (Former Employee) – Elizabethtown, KY – September 15, 2015
I liked the job as well as some of my other coworkers but the managment was unfair with some of us associates. a lot of favortism went on there. The pay could have been better. I had no benefits which along with the low pay made me and other assosiates misrable. They did not give us days off which i am sure affected there production. If you asked me if i would go back i would tell you that i would not go back there unless i knew things where different there.
