Was a good job out of college but not for the long haul...
Pre-Press Specialist (Former Employee) – Breinigsville, PA – March 25, 2017
When I first got the job it was very busy each day, lots of manual work that needed to be done by the end of each day. The work was fast paced and the day went quickly. There was even a time where I was getting Overtime nearly every night of the week which was awesome. As time went on though some of the software we used became more automated which cut down on all that manual work. There was a merger of two facilities that gave us far too many people and layoffs followed. I managed to stick it out for as long as possible until I ended up being the one without a job. My direct manager was probably the best person I could ever work for, through thick and thin he was great to me and the other employees. I give him the 5 stars not necessarily the other managers in the building. The hardest part of the job was learning some of the processes needed to perform jobs. The enjoyable parts were some of the co-workers I got to know. What I learned was that there was no room for advancement here, you got your annual 1% raise which was given to everyone regardless of their work ethic. I also learned that the more automation you implement into your work day the less of a need you will become because now a computer will do you job for you. By the end the typical day was very mind numbing and boring.
Great Boss and some great Co-workers
Some horrible cut throat co-workers, high deductibles on healthcare & lack of incentive to do your job.
