Having a job and getting to work out at the same place
Packer (Former Employee) – Fonda, NY – December 12, 2014
A typical day at work started at 5 am. I would walk through the door, punch in and go straight to my station. I worked on the packing line and working in that particular station, I was doing a lot of lifting pushing bending and twisting. It was like a workout while working with aluminum.
What I learned is that there are many different types of aluminum and they require to be packed differently.
honestly, the management sucked. The new "co-owner", if he didn't like the way his aluminum was packed he would tear open the pallet and make you re pack it while he was standing over your shoulder.
i loved my co workers, we all had alot of fun talking and working and talking about where we were raised and family traditions.
The hardest part of the job was being motivated enough to be pumped up and ready to work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was it was like working out in a gym like i mentioned at the top of this review: bending , lifting, twisting pushing and pulling. It was like getting a full blown work out with out going to the gym.
checks were given half hour before lunch
