Cons: short breaks, too long of shifts, damaging to health and family life, management
A typical day at Ryt-way Industries is disheartening at best. At this place of work every employee talks about how much they dislike or even "hate" what they are doing. You clock in with your badge 5 minutes before your shift and then get to work immediately cleaning up and reorganizing after the shift before you because the management cannot keep tabs on what their employees do (even if you complain that the shift before you is not leaving a clean and organized station before they leave). After about 3 hours you get a 15 minute break which is actually 10 minutes because of the walk to the break room is included in the 15 minutes. Then after you eat, smoke, or relax for a few minutes you run back in to work. 3 more hours go by and you get a 20 minute break which is actually 15 for the same minute before. This break is considered lunch break which is at 12 am. Three more hours go by, and another 15 (10) minute break issued and then 3 more hours you clock out and go home.
I have learned that working 12 hour shifts is not good for anyone when you work on the same line for months at a time.
The management is very poor at communication and will treat their employees like children when they do communicate. They will even get angry with employees over topics they did not tell their employees.
The coworkers are generally very nice, but while nice, they are all on edge because of the anxiety and depression they feel because of working at this business.
The hardest part of this job is talking yourself into work for the day because of how miserable you may feel at work and the amplification – more... of it all by being surrounded by people who hate it even more than you do. Also, when you are working a station by yourself that requires more than one person to man the job but when requesting help, they deny it to you and by the end of the shift you are worn out and still have to go in to the same spot the next day to wear out again and eventually this takes a HUGE tole on your body. Also, working 12 hour overnight shifts destroy family lives and regular relationships.
The best part of this job is the benefits you can receive from the company. They spare no expense when giving you great options for benefits. Also, the pay is enough to keep you there if you are working any position above a line worker. – less
