If you like money, it will flow your way along with mandatory IT.
The employee scholar program is generous and one can study any field at an accreddited institution. The offering of benefits is not worth much at Carrier Indy, however, when those offering make it diffcult by requiring so many weeks of such long hours.
The health benefits seem ok. I don't subscribe as I have health coverage from a former employer with a REAL union.
401k and matching is good.
Discount on buying a Furnace we fabricate exists, but it is very restrictive and a bit difgicukt to use. The company doesn't tell you what the discount is when you fill out paperwork, but they do include all restrictions. Only employee, no family. Select companies too purchase and install.

Work is manageable and not taxing. No one is overburdened . It is the continual 6 days a week.

The bathrooms, though are few and far between and often water is gound in pools on floor.
I have been in manufacturing for 40 years, numerous companies, large and small. These are by far the worst restrooms I have encountered.
Pay is decent. However one gets the feeling that Carrier believes that they then own you and the union seems not to care.
Afternoon differential pay amounts to less than 1%. Afternon shift ,on weekends when 8 hr days are sometimes worked has their shift starting time moved up 2 1/2 hours. Day shift gets off 2 hrs early . Sometimes notification of change from 10 to 8 hr day and change of start time is less that 24 hrs.
