MATERIAL HANDLER/MACHINE OPERATOR, AVM (Current Employee) – Mullins, SC – May 11, 2018
A 8-10 hour work day starts off slow. It seems everyone has to be geared up to since my shift started 6 a.m. Once everyone get started the work is steady upbeat pace. There's constant changes due to big orders which requires first priority to have customer shipment to be on time. They co-workers are hard-working, friendly, and competitive. Every position in this work place was easy to do. What I love about the job is that each shift are 8 hours, and could work overtime.
AVM treats employees on the factory floor very well. While the pace of manufacturing ebbs and flows, floor workers are offered many opportunities for over-time, vacation, and bereavement. Other benefits such as health care and retirement plans, appear to be comparable for the area. Officers at the plant are often promoted from within but must deal directly with off-site corporate officers who are used to and expect a much higher level of performance in reporting, and problem solving.
