Can be a physically demanding job.
Mill Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Dodge, IA – August 30, 2018
Straight 8 hours shifts, no smoking, overtime for any work over eight hours, overtime for excess of five days, double time for seventh day work, holiday pay when off and triple time for working national holidays.
Work is dusty, hot or cold depending on the season, you'll sweat in either event and chances are you'll be dirty and tired when you get off.
Nowadays they provide a work uniform though they always subsidized work boots and safety glasses.
Well paid for the work you do.
Work is more physical than mental.
