Machine Operator, Independence, MO - September 22, 2014
I truly loved working at ATK, I took pride in my work. However I felt as though my thoughts and ideas were not being heard. ATK as a whole went through several management changes and some changes were good others not so good. We ran machines for hours at a time especially when the demand for .50 cal bullets was high my normal schedule for from 5:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m Mon-Wed or long weeks would be from Mon-Thurs 12 hour days and mandatory overtime either on Thurs. or Fri depending on the week. The hardest part of working at ATK was being on my feet for hours at a time. I have made life long friends at ATK.
