Hard work. Fast paced (foam department)
Foam department (Current Employee) – Shepherdsville, KY – November 8, 2016
One of the most physically demanding jobs I've ever had, and I've worked in other assembly plants.
Hours are long. 630 am 630 pm. If you work day shift, expect to work your days off (friday and sat) until you're no longer the low man or woman on the totem pole.
Turnover is extremely high because of the fast paced nature. Most co-workers are friendly to a certain extent. Others are extremely rude and callous. Probably due to the high turnover rate and seeing so many people leave foam department.
You better have tough skin inside and out to last here. Pay is good, but I'd rather take a pay cut then to have no life working over 60 plus hours. No benefits or membership in the union for 90 days. Also, Ford shut downs are reported for next year 2017 lasting over 6 months. I expect to be gone way before then.
Better paying factory for the shepherdsville area
Short training period. Long hours. No benefits until 90 days
