Has its Pro's and con's.....here's the truth.
Pros: The pay is decent and unlimited overtime.
Cons: Breaks and lunches are to short for 12 hour shifts, training sucks.
I am a mechanical operator. 1st off, be prepared to stand for 12 hours minimum a Day. Breaks are SUPER short, 2 15 minute breaks and 1 30minute lunch. Now, Basf WILL pay Good money based on your title. They start at 13 as a temp(which every one starts as). The supervisors have their favorites that they allow to do things that most would get a write up for. They have a zero tolerance for being unsafe. Their is no motivation nor moving up in the company unless you kiss tale. Even if you do your job great and get told so on a weekly basis for years. No one wants to train you, but your expected to know the job within 2weeks, regardless of position.
