Pros: they have a cafee with really good coffee & dougnuts. good benefits too.
Cons: they make you work saturday, (which cuts into your windsurfing time.)
A typical day for me at American Axel & Manufacturing is: I come into work on 2nd Shift, (it's Autumn), the wind is good on the lake for Wind-Surfing, so I take a ride on my Wind-Board, Before work... (Just to mellow me out for the night). Then around 2:00 in the afternoon I show up for work, (I work in Hub Machining)... after a night of precision inspection of single & dual wheel truck hubs, I'm ready for a night on the town! So, I head back to the Zoo (Kalamazoo) & see if there's anything going on at Way-Side West or Coral Gables.
I really like the ordinary working-class people here! We get along great! But, some of the managers are kind-of "hierarchical-command structure" jerks (if you can allow yourself to imagine what I'm saying,)
All-in all, this isn't a bad "Factory-Job"... I just wish we could make some REAL MONEY, like they did 10 or 15 years ago here... when the wages started at $14.00 Dollars an Hour....those were the days... yeah!
