There is no future here.
Pros: operators are mostly nice, always hiring cause so many people quit.
Cons: work conditions, complacency, union
Press operator jobs will run a person into the ground, the work is noisy, dusty, hot, monotonous and all around unrewarding. Hard work and dedication will get you nowhere. Once an operator is broken and close to retirement, they get fired, I saw it, it was so sad, the place destroyed this guy's wrists so they told him they couldn't use him anymore, – more... 60 years old, done the same job for decades and they tossed him to the curb. Managers and HR are like a flock of seaguls, they fly in, poo on everything then fly off. There is no loyalty between the company and the workers. There is an open shop union here that the owners despise and take out the workers. Single issues aren't dealt with when they arise on a case by case basis, instead, absurd rules are made up or long standing policies interpreted differently. Silly things like if you cross your name off a voluntary overtime list - You Get Fired. If you sign up for a different position, then decide you don't want if, you have to take the job, cross your name off the list? Get Fired. This company has been shutting down it's American operations and is in love with cheap exploited labor from China and Mexico. The pay is awful. They are "self insured", you can figure out what that means. Most of the workers are nice and decent people, some aren't, same as anywhere. The intrusion into your personal life is crazy. They force you to do a company blood draw to check your "wellness". Refuse? You bet, written up, maybe fired. At one time, they even had all the regular soda removed from the vending machines and forced you to buy that diet junk with all the chemicals in it. Don't even step in the front door, unless you are on huber and need a job. – less
