The company goal is to satisfy the customer. Depending on the supervisor, there may be some manipulation to insist for an employee to extend their working hours. I learned that the employee is only a means for a goal, but not always valued for their worth. The culture is to continue high turnover, with many temporary employees and not focus on needed training. Either you got the skill and you remain employed or you are out of luck with few training opportunities and you are fired. The hardest part is the 10 hr to 12 hr shifts that I had to endure, during the times my location had one shift. Even having to come in a few hours early to make up for a newly created shift that was inexperienced to production goals. Lack of sleep was an issue. The management lack employee appreciation and with minimal satisfying gestures. I enjoyed the individual that was my manager, which later management lowered his position to a supervisor. He worked above what he shall have done. Took his personal time to ensure production was completed. Listened more than the rotation of supervisors and team leaders that did not last long. I admired him, even though the pressure was placed upon the operators on the assembly line.
