Numbers Trumps Safety and Quality.
While it is a job, per-se, They try to squeeze out of a two-shift operation what they should do in three. It is not uncommon for forklift operators to speed through the plant in order to "keep things moving," which poises a safety risk for all pedestrians. The turnover rate is horrendous as management does not care if they run someone off. Their mentality is that there will always be someone else to replace you. Due to this, they are finding it very hard to hire new people. Being in a small town, in which many live within ten miles, word-of-mouth spreads like wildfire. They are in danger of losing a major customer due to poor quality, (a by-product of the high turnover rate). All-in-all, if I could do it all over again, I would much rather go back to being a substitute mail carrier with a constantly breaking down mail vehicle and only working one to two days a week than to have had made the conscious decision to work in this micro third world country.
