Pros: 2, 20 minute breaks paid, good pay, really take care of employees
Cons: drug tests every month get annoying
My typical day was working in the Machine Shop so my review might be different from many of the others I heard about around the plant. Ive heard many stories of other parts of the plant not being air conditioned and harsh working conditions such as lead and acids. It always made me feel like I was working in the heavenly part of the plant.
I learned a lot at Deka as I was new to the trade the ProtoTRAK machines are awesome and made each day fun and exciting.
Management was great didn't care much at all or hound you. I've seen guys stand around talking for 15 minutes or so.
The hardest part of the job was probably the stresses of getting the parts right. But it was never a huge deal if you messed up.
The people and environment were great as long as the work not being pressured since it wasn't a production shop we were mostly supporting the plants needs.
