Serious lack of training. Management is all over the place. A team leader will tell you one thing and another will come past and tell you to do something different. Lack of communication. Engineers ask you what they can do to fix something and then ignore it for weeks/months and still does not get done. They just implemented a new program for continuous improvement. They do not listen to your ideas. Scheduling from management is ridiculous. Pay is decent, benefits are horrible, working overtime is mandatory, The points system is a joke. Vacation time is a joke. Not able to plan anything in advance due to "mandatory weekend overtime" Overall a horrible place, especially since it was bought out.

Never knowing from one moment to the next if the machine will break down and for how long. If the machine does work, how many rejected parts will you have at the end of your shift.

Working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for months at a time, not knowing when your next day off would be. Also, stress. All they care about is production, and since people are always quitting, they will thrust far too many duties on you to make up for the loss in manpower.

It's stress city, even the supervisors admit it. Typical shop which pushes production, is short on quality, and treats their good employees like garbage.
