Inspector and Hand Packager (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – August 22, 2015
Job security and pay was good, but the company was not very ethical. Over the years I worked there I did get a lot of overtime and I did get some pretty decent raises, but ethically speaking the company suffered and it wasn't very organized either and a lot of people didn't stay because of that. As the company grew through out the years their organization improved tremendously and I started to feel relieved. I was the designated trainer on second shift and I enjoyed doing that on a daily basis because I like teaching people new things and it took me away from inspecting, which can become mundane after you've been doing it for a while.
I enjoyed working there, after the fire they down sized. I was part of the first swipe.

A typical day at work would consist of making rounds, making sure production is flowing, and running good parts. My relationship with management and co-workers is very good, I get along with everybody. The hardest part of my job would be having to report bad product to management, however that is a main part of my job. The most enjoyable part of my job is when the jobs are running well.
