Factory work in the summer time but great pay
Summer Intern (Former Employee), Decatur, ILJuly 30, 2014
I learned that working in a factory is a tough job. The management was pretty cool but they stressed safety a lot, almost too much. The hardest part of the job was trying to do work required in a hot part of the plant. The most enjoyable part of the job is when my dad was at work so I got to hand with him a lot.

Process Operator (Current Employee), Decatur, ILNovember 27, 2012
Pros: good pay and benefits, good management team
Cons: long hours and work holidays
Typical day at work includes troubleshooting the process and maintaining it. I have learned how to read P&ID's and make adjustments to the finished product. Also, the process involved to make one product into another. The hardest part of the job is the hours worked.

FIXED ASSET ACCOUNTANT (Former Employee), Decatur, ILNovember 12, 2012
Pros: nice working atmosphere with good people
Cons: no volunteer opportunities to help in the community.
The days were mostly hectic. When I arrived there was only one person for all of fixed assets and it was way behind. There was also a lot of subjective material, so I could interpret one way, a co-worker another way, engineer, etc., there was no detail.

I had many ideas which would have been incorporated into the company, however upper management made – more... the decision to move the Financials from Decatur, IL to Poland. Therefore my ideas were no longer warranted, as well as all financial personnel. – less

Machine Operator in Dry Starch (Former Employee), Decatur, IllinoisJanuary 8, 2012
Pros: paid vacation, medical, dental, vision, 401k, flexible spending account

Alot of last minute mandatory overtime that you can't refuse no matter what you have already planned for your time off. Poor communication at the supervisor/senior management level. 12 hour swing shift(6am-6pm and vice versa). 3 days on, then supposed to be 3 days off. Swing from days to nights every 5 weeks. Never the same days off from week to week, – more... always changing. – less

Assistente Administrativo Comercial (Former Employee), São Paulo, SPJuly 19, 2013
Pros: vale-refeição, vale alimentação, convênio médico e odontológico bom
Cons: salário mediano para o porte da empresa
Tinha muitas atividades durante o dia, mas contava com o apoio da equipe que eu trabalhava, para tirar dúvidas, ou em solucionar problemas, caso fosse necessário.

A gerência era aberta à sugestões e estava disposição para ajudar.

Meus colegas de trabalho mantinham uma postura de equipe, eram respeitosos e agradáveis de trabalhar.
