maintenance (Current Employee) – Reidsville, NC – January 13, 2016
No diversity, no job growth for women. No women in Supervision, period. Yes, this plant, Reidsville, is represented by the Teamsters Union. Makes no difference, they are just as bad, it's the " He Man Women Hater's Club all the way around.
The vast majority of my job was driving a forklift and loading and unloading trucks. It was a very fast paced position with very little to no down time, not even for breaks or lunches. Working 10 hour days with the rotating shift had some benefits but was hard for my family as we have children active in sports so I was missing a lot of events.
Having four days off in a row
working 10 hours with short breaks and changing shifts

Typical day: Clock in, check schedule to find out location of the machine you will be on. I learned new skills of how to load, pack and monitor the machines-which i loved. The issue with this company is the foremen and die setters ( line mainteance) know the machines were old, they break down all day and they expect you to still hit a target goal which is impossible!!!!!! Also i was never told of a no point before 100 days which i was fired!!!! You recieve a whole point for being a min over clock in time, and after 30 work days or when they decide you are forced to work 10 hours instead of 8 hours with little warning and mandatory saturdays. Also i was hired at a higher rate but rate was (LOWER) changed due to trainig in a different area.

You have to have 100 working days of probation. This entails almost 5 months of probation. You cannot miss days or you will be fired. My plant has a zillion rules and an outrageous point system. It's a point for forgetting to clock out and for being 30 seconds late as well as just calling off. Seems to me, easier to call off if your getting a point for missing or being there all day and forgetting to clock out or clock back in from lunch. You do not get raises and all the retirees made sure they get their pension with the union contract that is not up until 2018. There is NOTHING for the incoming people. The HR dept. and managers could be better. It is hard work and a lot of overtime. I watch one miserable hour go by after another. The training process was non existent and it has been a horrible process to learn my job. I'm looking for something else and praying. They also lied to my face and said in interview there would be a shoe reimbursement. A requirement of steel toed shoes and no reimbursement at 100 days and union induction. At $400 a week clear and have to pay $39 a month in union dues at 30 days and not technically in USW until 100 days.
