Wages here are competitive, actually, they are hard to beat for anyone who doesn't have a degree or specific trade. They offer job advancement but no plant to plant transfers; you would have to quit and apply at another location. They give attendance bonuses every month, great health insurance, dental, and optical and retirement. However, your week's paid vacation will not be seen until you've been with the company for 3 years, your only allowed a certain number of call ins before you'll be terminated, and a certain amount of "sick child" absencea before you'll be asked for a doctor's note. Great people work there, even management so tolerating "corporate" is a little easier to do.
