This job is for those that need to make more than a 40 hour paycheck.
Packer and Skill position operator (Current Employee) –  Carleton, MIMarch 13, 2019
On the surface the rotating schedule, 2 on, 2 off, 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 3 off, repeat. Seems pretty good. But then you add in mandatory OT and you seldom ever have a whole weekend off. There is no work / life balance. This job is built for people that cannot live on a 40 hour weekly paycheck. Lots of OT available and good health benefits. Pays the bills but your kids will never see you.
Pros
OT and good health benefits
Cons
Poor work/life balance. Petty management. No paid sick days and if you do call off, it is held against you.

Prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  De Witt, IAMay 7, 2019
A great place to build experience. The company culture is MBM, and while it is not perfect there is a real drive to advance the culture. Some problems with work life balance.
Pros
Opportunities for growth. Good culture. Great experience.
Cons
Work life balance. Lower pay than comparable jobs.

Stepping stone
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  DeWitt, IAApril 29, 2019
Would be a job you could retire at if the owners (the koch brothers) weren’t so greedy. You work harder and way more overtime while being paid way less compared to other local manufacturers. You don’t have mauve home life working here. Up the pay and cut some overtime and it’ll be a great place to work.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
Underpaid especially compared to other local manufacturers
