Pros: good pay for where i live, and 2 breaks a day, also having good health benefits, and paid holidays and vacations
Cons: even though i only work 8 hours a day i am gone from home 11 to 12 hours a day, also we have no guaranteed days off and can end up working all week
I ride a bus to work at 1:30 p.m. and get to work at about 2:30 p.m., i then go the the cafeteria and get a snack. Work then starts at 3 p.m. and I do the same repetitive task all day, with a 15 min. break at 5:45 p.m. and a 30 min. lunch at 8:00 p.m. At about 11:30 p.m. I leave work and get on the bus and get home at about 12:30 a.m.
I have so far – more... learned a better work ethic and a little about operating machinery.
The management is good, I don't talk to most of the supervisors or plant managers on a regular basis, but so far they have been respectful and nice.
I don't talk to my co-workers much, because on the work floor the machinery is to loud to talk even when screaming, but I have a few friends who are cool that I talk with during lunch.
The hardest part of the job is towards the end of the day my thumb is really sore and starts to get hard to move after sealing bags all day.
So far honestly my favorite part is the pay, other than that it is all alright. – less
