Great place to work if you work hard and have no life
Factory Laborer (Current Employee) – Chardon, OH – June 13, 2018
The pay, benefits, and most of the people are pretty awesome. Like any other place, there are those who start a lot of drama and it's irritating. Otherwise, it's hot year round, messy but much cleaner than any other factory I've worked in, you're gonna work hard and you're gonna sweat a lot. There's almost always overtime to be done. If you're like me, you can do up to 60 - 65 hours a week in the summer to make up for your 40 hour winter weeks (even that's rare). They schedule you typical 8 hour shifts, monday-friday (third shift is sunday - thurdsay nights) and to days a week minimum is an extra four hours before or after your shift. I mostly enjoy the friends I've made on the job and some of the work I'm certified to do. There's always room for advancement as long as your shift and department are fully staffed. The hardest part of this job is the long summer hours, honestly. And the thing I most dislike about this job is the management. Oh boy, I have a lot of issues with these people... Some of them are pretty cool, but the ones I directly deal with are not concerned with your well being, don't take your concerns or comments seriously, and like to talk badly about employees behind their backs. And there is ZERO communication... They are not leaders or supervisors, they're more like children in high school. HR doesn't help either, you need to call the anonymous employee hotline.
