Long hours.Grueling pace.
Utility (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – September 3, 2018
I worked as a utility under the guise that i would become a process engineer within a few days. The interview was nice, they left out some key information that i didn't learn until after i started work. There is a stretch and meeting before every shift, that was nice. Safety meetings every other day, worrisome. Mandatory 6 day work week, no exceptions. Wasn't told that part. 10 hour days for anyone above general labor. 12 hour days for utility and up. Wasn't told that either. Management was a complete joke and waste of space. They could care less about your issues or complaints. Posted on every door was a warning to not let government agents or police officers in through the doors. People would fall over working at the presses from exhaustion. I think i got 6 breaks total in the 3 weeks i worked there. And the pay was a miserable reminder that you could never work enough. The people were nice enough. The supervisors were against a wall constantly and exhausted. Run screaming from there.
mandatory 6 day weeks at 10 hour days, so overtime
There isn't enough space to list them all.
