Very productive, fun freindly atmosphere
PTOffice/QC data entry/recycling/sweeper/forklift (Former Employee) –  Van Buren, ARDecember 9, 2013
Each day started with meeting with night shift and learning what happened on their shift and what I needed to really focus on first thing. I had multiple super visors and so it could get a bit hectic at times. My co-workers were fun, loving, helpful, and friendly. It was to know that we could all work together in an atmosphere of mostly men and nothing negative came out of it.
Pros
decent pay, good insurance, and fun friendly environment
Cons
to many chiefs and not enough indians so speak

Rotating on days and nights is a bummer.
Operator Technician (Former Employee) –  Bentonville, ARAugust 27, 2013
This job works too hard for little pay. Plus it's a 12 hour shift so you're up working longer hours. Co-workers are okay to work around with except if you get to know everybody, most people start expecting you to help if you were a good/fast pace worker. I learned how to fix the machines. Every little problem on the machines were easy to fix and sometimes may be time consuming but i always get it up and running as soon as i can. Hardest part of the job wouldn't really be anything because once you learn everything, you know everything. Hardest part of the job would be rotating from nights to days. Most enjoyable part of the job would be the breaks. Love how you can go to break after your finish running your machines and nothing is broken.
Pros
breaks
Cons
vacation days, rotations, incentives

Job description
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Shelbyville, KYAugust 10, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of running a machine that ran wiring, that begins as a big rod of steel into different things such as staples, to barbed wire and fencing. You have to operate a machine that is constantly running into different gauges. These are ran thru a furnace, acid and a bath.

The hardest part of the job is if you lose part of the line, you would have to manually put it back into line to continue down the line.
Pros
bonuses every quarter & walmart cards for attendance & performance.
Cons
worked a split shift. 6 weeks on nights and 6 weeks on days. hard on your sleeping abilities.

Run away
Production member. (Former Employee) –  Shelbyville, KYAugust 2, 2013
This company at this location is not union. 12 hour shifts working 6 weeks of days and 6 weeks of nights; your body never adjusts. Work life balance is non-existant, starting pay has not increased in years, pay raises are rare. Job is hot dirty and strenuous, less than minimal staff for such a large operation. Management sits in the A/C and will come out to berate you for not meeting herculean goals. Just stay away, you'll just waste your time and put your personal life in jeopardy.
Cons
crazy shifts, low pay
