Cons: number of hours required to work
Amazing at how much disrespect is handed down to the Supervisors by people who have zero to little experience in leading others. Typical day at work is spent begging other areas to provide you with people to start the line because the Union makes it so easy for people to call off from work. Not sure how this plant still runs, oh wait, yes I do, it is because of the hard work and creativity the supervisors have in filling the gaps of people and broken equipment only to get treated like cra* by upper management when build isn't made. If your not putting in 70+ hours a week then you have no future in this company. Pay was good but overall treatment wasn't worth the headache. The Union runs this plant and gets many of the low life trouble makers that work there out of any responsibility for their actions as possible. I worked here for 3 months and was doing really well, but again, the disrespect I felt by upper management and the lack of authority we have over the workers made me feel like I was fighting with my hands behind my back. In addition, after 3 months with around 900 hours under my belt, I earned a WHOPPING 10 hours of vacation time.. WHAT A JOKE. There is no balance between work and family. During my time here I knew 3 people who were having serious marital problems due to the lack of them being home with the family, fortunately I am financially secure so I didn't need to put up with the nonsense for as long as they have. God forbid if you do ask for a day off, you get looked at like you have a contagious disease! This plant pushes lean manufacturing, one of the biggest headaches you can imagine, if the workload you have from day-to-day isn't enough, meeting the requirements of world class manufacturing will push you over the edge, it did me. Best of luck to those that continue to work there in Supervisory roles, definitely a job for someone younger and doesn't know any better.
