Overall I would still be an employee working for the company if not for plant closings .
Pros: benefits, health insurance, pay increases, holiday time off .
Cons: away from home and family a lot, time off was mostly used up resting and recuperating to return to work.
The job itself overall was very demanding , physically, mentally stressful. It had its minuses and pluses as jobs go, I liked most the benefits and holiday time off at the time . It could was very demanding time wise and personally away from home , family a lot.. It was interesting like a home away from home in many respects , many interesting people from different walks of life and backgrounds . I would have to say the benefits were great , had the plant closures here not have happend I would still be employed there .
