General Laborer at DB Schenker (Former Employee) – West Branch, IA – April 29, 2017
The management cared about the workers on the factory floor, to the extent of our physical health, but included no benefits to us as for pay. I would hear stories of such benefits once existing, but being cut for upper management gain. Fortunately, this didn't affect workers moral, as the supervisors were very kind and understanding to daily problems on the floor. Management and supervisor positions were career opportunities, and as such very little openings existed for promotions, and even if they were apparent, they were given to those with seniority, regardless of ambition or attitude. Overall, it was a nice, clean, safe place to work, where one could take pride in his work, and see the numbers at the end of the day, and feel like they've accomplished something.
Able to take pride in good, hard work
No reward outside of that pride
