this job is what you make it.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Youngstown, OH – May 27, 2017
I have worked as a permanent, part-time employee on production for over 3 months now. I am looking forward to going full-time as soon as it is available. The work is monotonous, yes, but there are many wonderful coworkers. There is almost always an opportunity to get more hours. The pay is very good, and (as I have heard from many LONG-TERM employees) the benefits are very comprehensive.
Many reviews here complain about schedules and favoritism. Schedules for part -timers, such as myself, are easier to set more steady schedules, however, fulltimers who have not been awarded a bid position can have fluctuating hours and assignments. This can be changed after you establish some seniority and bidding for a position. Seniority is also the explanation for the so-called favoritism. You work side by side with people who have called Schwebel's "home" for decades!!! To see so many employees that have been there longer than I have been alive (and I'm no spring chicken!) is encouraging. Yes, the turnover rate is high. One and only reason: Expect to actually work. If you are looking for an easy paycheck, look elsewhere. Show up as scheduled, and work. End of story.
good pay, great coworkers, helpful (albeit busy) supervisors
scheduling changes, equipment isues
