Good job HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT!
operator (Former Employee), dixon caJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: cool co workers
Cons: management, pay is low, no advancement, black outs on vacation, they wont work around your life/schedule and expect you to bend over backwards for them!
The Dixon location feeds your hopes and dreams when you first come in the door, that there is room to advance and move up in the company. Truth is everyone in the location employee wise was telling me to get out while I could, that there was no advancement, and that they treat you like they own you! I was worried and then started to see and experience – more... it first hand! The graveyard supervisor was the worst... very smug, is a know it all and has only been with the company 2 months. In the meetings at the start of shifts was threating peoples jobs, and telling them that us as temps would take their jobs! crazy...glad I got out. – less

Loved this job
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Aurora, ILNovember 29, 2012
Cons: long hours some times.
Delivered windows to jobs sites. When it was slow i would work loading my truck for day or the next day. And help in the warehouse putting orders in the racks. Managment was great to work with co-workers was great to work with. The hardest part of the job was lifting large windows by yourself when i was sent out by myself. It wasn't a really a hard – more... job so when i would leave work i wasn't tired, so i was able to spend time with my wife and kids. – less
