Easy work, hostile environment.
Product Selector (Former Employee) – Avon, OH – March 16, 2018
When I initially worked in manufacturing I enjoyed this job a great deal. Easy hours working second shift 3:00pm-1:30am. The pace of work was fast but the personnel made the job very fun and easy to get into a productive rhythm. After a short time I was transferred to the distribution center, along with a pay raise, and schedule change (4:30pm-3:00am) and was trained to use a battery powered pallet-jack. The work again, was not very difficult and provided well timed breaks to split up the work day into what felt like short segments. As I settled into my new position, a lot of my peers and coworkers expressively droned about lack of leadership and terrible insults to our dept. manager. It got to be even worse once people that had no direct authority over me started to bark orders when they had no right to do so. Lots of gossip in the distribution dept. sometimes made it feel like if you didn't partake in it, you were left apart from the teamwork that was often needed. I recommend working in manufacturing if you do decide to apply here, although the pay is considerably less, you do have peace of mind enjoying your job.
Hours, 4 day work week, occasional free lunch.
Toxic work environment.
