I would not recommend anyone to work in the twisting department at this plant. Training is very poor, it is a very stressful environment if you’re not trained properly. Other departments have it a lot easier than you will. You’ll be constantly moving and working like a slave while you see the people in the heatset department standing in the same spot for 12 hours. If you run out of tubes you have to go all the way back there to heatset to get them all the while they’re standing in the same spot for 12 hours and you have 225 positions you have to maintain that will breakout. When you get packages from extrusion you have to pull the tail and tie you own weaver knot, if they send you a package with no tail on it they want you to use it anyway which will guarantee you a breakout on the position you use it on. When you sent your packages to heatset you have to pull the tail and tie half of the weaver knot for them like the people working in heatset are babies. You will get sent bad packages from extrusion that look like they’re good packages until it gets to the end and it will breakout on you. The managers don’t care when you get sent bad yarn but God forbid you send something a little off to heatset. When extrusion sends you your yarn they come in these 5’ by 5’ cages stacked about four rows high and it is really bad on your back and arms to get them out when you get to the bottom of the cage and you have to try and pull them out. I wouldn’t recommend this job and this stressful situation to even the most evil person that I know.
Stressful environment, poor training
