Kind of a Last Resort Job
Packer/Inspector (Former Employee) – Newcomerstown, OH – October 3, 2016
The hardest part of the job was trying to pay my bills when the factory would make quota earlier in the week and still expect the weekend workers to drive there on Friday or Saturday without telling any of us that there was no one there. My hours were dependent on how well the factory produced and shipped products during the week. Most the people that worked there were felons and there was a lot of harsh, uncomfortable language and activity that went on there. The bosses were unmotivated and rude and did not control the workers that yell at other employees and throw fits. The best part about the job was seeing and being part of the packaging of processed goods. I always wondered how factories worked, and I enjoyed my tasks at work. I inspected products that came through on the conveyor belt, glued and put stickers on damaged boxes, made boxes at a rapid pace, packaged goods, and sealed boxes.
