Pros: hmm...well...i guess a paid lunch is nice
Cons: low pay, management with too much pride, out dated machines that break down all the time
This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for. They start you off at $10.50 a hour. After 2 months you earn $11.50 a hour. A man that has been there for 9 years earns $11.97 a hour. Seriously?!? How can anybody say with a straight face that this is a good paying job. I have to do so much work, Im lucky to be able to drink water twice a day, and that is a true fact. Between 1400-2000 shovels in 7 & 1/2 hours is the amount of work you will be expected to do. Your lunch is paid, which is nice, except for your not allowed to leave the property, so forget about going to get something at lunch. Plus if you smoke, prepare yourself to go 8 hours without a smoke. Management does not care about you, its their way or the highway, even though some of the things they do goes completely against common sense. Most places try to work smarter, not harder. This place thinks the exact opposite way. They will not listen to your ideas, because their pride wont allow them to see through a foolish way of doing things and the awful pay is the reason this company has a huge turnover rate. No one and I repeat no one in this company in 2014 should make under $14 per hour. Period. If you think differently, then I feel bad for your self esteem.
