Pros: paycheck never bounced, best foot forward before you get kicked out or forced out(nudged by the same foot)
Cons: distrustful and discouraging atmosphere, questionable ethics, desire of management to prostrate themselves for the big customer down the road, desire of management to prostrate themselves for the little ones nearby.
The day starts with information presented by supervisor or manager.
Coordination and actual conditions are not what they sound like, what you are told is what they want you to believe. Management-supervisory input is questionable at best and the use of the words "safety" and "best practices" are not that, they are pry points to get what these fellows – more... want. Management is generally inept and insecure in their abilities to express control through reason and fact.
Co-workers are nice guys, some are dedicated and some are lax. It appears like the ones who were interested in company improvements through organizing (failed teamster involvement) are being targeted for ouster. Hardest part of the job is trying to do my best for the company inspite of conflicted, ignorant (not stupid) work instruction that often times is couched in opinionated terms.
The most enjoyable part of the job is getting materials taken care of in a quality manner and having the products available to our customer when needed.
