They mandate overtime....they run out of parts and there's no work and you are farmed out, then they get parts in and mandate you to death and run out again. It's a viscous cycle with bad upper management at the root.

Most weeks are mandatory 10 hour shifts.... good pay but most days you are just standing around ... poor training program and parts are scattered across entire plant .... if you are deadline oriented you will walk a couple of miles a night trying to find parts
