Lots of overtime! 6-7 day work weeks with no end in sight
Hourly Associate (Former Employee) – Three Rivers, MI – January 14, 2019
The pay and benefits for hourly employees is amazing, but the excitement of the pay and benefits wears off quickly as the 6 and 7 day work weeks drag on with no end in sight. As a probationary employee you will most likely work 12 hour days for the majority of your first 90 days of employment. There is very little room for advancement or for raises. You wont be left with much time to further your education and the supervisory/management positions are few. Being a union plant all wages are within about $1 of each other, ranging from $21-22 an hour. Great place to work if you want steady income, but your work/life balance will suffer. Management seems to be trying to fix the issues, but either their hands are tied from above or they just have no idea how to fix the problem. Due to the high turn over, lack of maintenance on equipment and poor production scheduling/ over scheduling it seems this place will continue to work its employees until they quit. Most of the employees are great to work with, but are burnt out and frustrated with a great majority seeking employment elsewhere. This place also lacks proper training and guidance. Nothing is written down! You learn and will have to remember almost everything by doing it. Take a notebook and ask a lot of questions! Lots of experienced people there, but a lot have chosen to step down because the extra few cents they were making wasn't worth the hassle to them.
salary and benefits is decent
overtime with no end in sight, broken equipment, burnt-out employees
