It would be impossible to choose just one thing, because honestly, there's really nothing good about working there. But if I had to pick one, I'd say it's the fact that you can't just stay on the same job on the same shift without being reassigned. Most of the jobs out there were a nightmare anyway and they'll totally destroy your body and your mind, but if you're low seniority, it's very difficult to just stay put on the same job on the same shift without having to worry about being reassigned. It's especially insulting when the reason that you're being reassigned is simply because other employees from some other department are too lazy to show up for work, so you have to get reassigned out of your department to go and cover for them. That's both a slap and a spit in the face. Why should you have to be punished just because other people don't want to show up for work?

Would be a better environment if management would be able to communicate with the employees. Management keeps employees in the dark and all they are concerned with is numbers instead of safety. True if they don’t reach their quota then product reliability suffers due to the numbers game they play. True that the union is failing at representing the employees and they only want to fire more of the seniority to hire newer workers at a less wage so the company can profit for putting seniority employees into debt. Good luck to the new hires but save every penny you earn because they will break you in the end.

The fact that a guy can verbally abuse, threaten, and even push another employee but because there’s allies to protect him the victim has to undergo a lot of personal stress and deal with it all on their own! Choose your cohorts wisely because one way or another you’ll pay for it. Everybody knows somebody if you don’t know anybody. They will leave you in the dark as a means to an end. Educate yourself on your personal rights and document everything and seek legal advice.
