Fast pace and can be stressful at times.
Team Leader/Trainer (Current Employee) –  Rockmart, GAAugust 16, 2018
The pay could be a lot better. You have to work 6-7 days a week to bring home a decent paycheck. Top out is $15 an hour and it’s not easy moving up in the company. It’s very hot during the summer time and cold during winter. HR management could be a lot better. They don’t really care about the floor workers.
Pros
You get a week off for the 4th of July and Christmas. For thanksgiving you get 3 days.
Cons
30 minutes lunch, to many hours and not enough pay

Not a good place to work. They overwork their employees and do not care about their home lives. You are just a number or body at Jefferson Southern Corporation.

Assistant Manager Stamping (Former Employee) –  Rockmart, GAApril 30, 2018
I enjoyed working with the people my coorinators and team leaders. The issues are the turnovers its hard to train new operators when the guy who’s training them only been doing the job 6 months to a year their selves and the expection of production is the same no matter if they have been there 3 weeks or 3 years. the pay rate for Press operators or not enough $11to $13 dollars and hr . Fork lift drivers pay grade is $10 to $11 dollars and hrs . Its hard to keep good workers when other jobs are paying more for their skills and it doesn’t help with all the hrs they work they don’t really have any family time.
Pros
Garanted hours
Cons
12 hrs 6 to 7 days a week

long hours of repetitive work
Welder (Former Employee) –  Rockmart, GAMarch 9, 2018
repetitive work does become very tiresome when performing it for 12 hours. Good pay, benefits, and time-off. very hard to have a social life or any life at that.
Pros
great pay only because you work so many hours, if you don't work a lot of hours then the pay isn't that great
Cons
no social life, if you work 12 hours for seven days a week and sleep the other half, where's the fun?

You're only a number!!! You can be replaced easily.
Welding (Current Employee) –  Rockmart, GAJuly 31, 2017
The company does not care about it's employees. All they care about is their production. If you are out sick/ or your child count on getting a point even with a doctor's note or you have to use your vacation time. Vacation time does not count for weekends. They will work you 12hrs a day mostly 7 days a week.
Pros
Lots of hours.
Cons
No time for family or a life.
