Immediate supervisor was solid, but the further up the management, the more spotty the communication and direction. Co-workers were easy to work with. Hardest part of the job was moving heavy boxes of nuts, bolts, etc. in the blazing Alabama summer heat. Most enjoyable part of the job was when the day ended. Was this review helpful?
