Easy to learn job, steady pace, felt too reliant on other people's attendance and work ethic.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Sullivan, IL – September 24, 2018
While working at Hydro-Gear, I found that the work done at stations was relatively easy compared to what I've experienced in my last work environment. Stations are areas people are assigned to for that portion of the shift, where they will stay until break. The only exception was when a person was assigned multiple stations, or expected to cover more stations than the one they are assigned. I grasped this concept immediately, within my first week I was hopping from station to station performing the necessary work with ease, while some others who had been there for months prior to my arrival were either struggling to keep up, or staying limited to just one station. Granted, some stations are harder than others, I found this to be no problem. A rhythm was very easy to put in place. My only qualms I had with Hydro-Gear was the fact that I couldn't balance my work life and private life, (Inevitably leading to my termination) and that I couldn't advance in my field. I had all the skills necessary to be certified on almost all stations in P-Series, but the assistant supervisor "didn't have time."
30 MInute Lunch and relatively easy work.
Poor managemant that doesn't understand a persons needs and wants.
