Long temporary worker process but none the less not a bad place to work. Definitely hot and dirty most of the time but rather high pay scales plus usually always good coworkers.

Company that had problems but worked with union officials to make sure that every employee was treated well and safety was first and product was second too bad the union couldn't keep the plant running causing over 1000 people to lose their jobs

I drove to work in Mt. Vernon from my home in Salem. I worked two 12 hour shifts on the weekend and two 8 hour shifts during the week. I built car tires on a machine.

Old methods of manufacturing makes it like a trip down memory lane. Making Corvettes and Shelbies with these old methods of manufacturing are fun things to remember. Back in the 1800's we had even older methods.
Pros
paid breaks and lunches
Cons
hazardous chemicals

worked at own pace which is up-beat for me. began by getting info from boss on which machines to clean and which ones to wait on. learned to use the mold press interface screen to manipulate machine to desired work positions. really enjoyed the work frce attitude torwards there work and having to work wit me(they were all very friendly and courteous). the hrdest part ofhe job i would say would be the dirt and hotness of the mold. and the most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to work and progress at own pace.
Pros
working without immediate supervision
Cons
heat from mold's

It has been a while since I worked at this place of employment, so I am uncomfortable sharing my work experience as it may have changed. Although, I did enjoy working there while I did.
