Very stressful job it gets more difficult with machine operators not following procedures and poor housekeeping.

Some employees do not follow directions from management just because they know how to operate extrusion machines they think there's no other job in the universe.

Global company has a lot to offer but not on short term must be committed to long-term
The trucking industry is unpredictable at best long hours on the road a lot of obstacles to overcome

International wire is a fine place to work. I learned how to balance multiple problems at once. The hardest part is just to make a living you have to be there 6 days out of the week because of the low pay.
its just go in talk to the person you follow so you know whats happening with certain orders. Then its just run your machines and go home.
Pros
if your machines are running then its break time which could be all night
Cons
no raise opportunities and sometimes machines do not want to run and its a dead sprint for 12 hrs

Corporate isn't there for the night shift that's when things rarely get done at a pace that they're supposed to. Everybody is miserable, drama happens because there is nothing else going on.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Everything else

Has the potential to be a good place to work except management does not work together and does not promote a teamwork based environment. The job overall isn't extremely hard. There is a lot to learn and is very fast paced. The hard part is trying to do a job in a workplace culture that doesn't promote teamwork and actually pits one shift against another. There is very little communication between shifts or between management.
Pros
Incentive program
Cons
no breaks, no communication, no teamwork, poor management

International wire is a good opportunity for certain individuals. It's very strenuous and the hours are long. The money they do pay for the amount of work expected is not worth it. But they do offer health benefits

They moved my job to Mexico so I really do not have much positive to say about this company. It was a scary time for me and my family. The process was not good.

This was a great place to work at. The only recommendation to the company is that they change the way that their point system is laid out. Other than their probationary period, it's a great place to work for.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Poor Management

Very strict work place, they run on a three point system. Runs into your family life as well. They have ok benefits, if they don't have enough work people get laid off and there hours cut.
Pros
Paid lunches
Cons
You work the shift they tell you, they can move you around to any position they want.
