Press operator, East Windsor, Ct - September 11, 2013
I have worked here for over 5 years and its only got worse. There is no room for advancement they only hire from the outside or promote family members. The pay is based on how much the owner likes you. The benefits are completely horrible. Basically if you are a press operator they chain you to the press. 20 min lunches that are paid for assuming you don't go 1 min over or are 1 min late to work or punch out 1 min early, then you lose pay for a whole week of lunches. Management is a joke as is there convoluted "bonus" system that is set up so only one press can achieve them. Quote from the owner "everybody is replaceable". Work your tail off for them and they give you a 25 cent raise while family members who "work" there boost about there huge raises.
