It depends on what your department. Some work 8-hour days, some work 12. The 12-hour crews are scheduled more days off per week, but our phones ring constantly. The 8-hour departments on the production floor are often scheduled to work weekends, many have mentioned not having more than a couple of days off per month. The bottom line is, if you hire in on the floor of this company, at least at this location, you can more or less expect to live here.

I was told to arrive anywhere between 730 and 930 am, and to work 8 hours. Breaks were up to me.

Long. Having multiple sales targets and having over 200+ distribution sales agents, I had little time to do much else. But the education, training and experience was exceptional.
