Bad team leaders

No life outside the job, pays to low. Also the shifts change every 7 days to morning, afternoon, and nights. Most of the time is stressful and they make you feel that you are replaceble every time. The weather is too hot and worst inside the factory.


Shifts rotated every week, pays to low

It's a good, if theirs don't have nothing else. But something more important is your safety. Something more important then those jobs there.

Improve on safety and care for those works at your company. Product is important but a life is worth more then the product combined with your company. Thank you for your time an good day.

Fast paced..loading truck with sugar pallets coming off the production line

It's a good place to work. There is work over 5 months of the year. This is a seasonal work. There is rotating shift every week. We get paid by weekly

If I needed help people were there to help if they needed help I was there for mechanical or electrical and or instrumentation. Great place to work


People, ongoing training, pay, chance to go to other plants and assist with their start ups.

A great learning experience

A learning experience, and a fun place to work and the supervisor are very open minded when you have questions concerning a certain project. When i first started i was maintenance.Maybe 3 months into the job they moved me up to a Mechanic Helper.
