good local company but 2-tier system is no good

There are basically two classes of workers - hired in and contractors which do literally everything and constitute 1/2 of the company. Temps can be anyone from warehouse assembly worker to experienced quality engineer. Company says they never "fired" anyone in their history but that's a lie.. they just don't re-hire "contractors" the next year.
VERY - more ... conservative culture - ties and collar shirts a must for every, whether you work in office or on the shop floor. Only exception is Cintas uniforms. Lots to learn if you are given opportunity as a temp, and that's a catch. You can advance quickly o ... - less
Prosfree fruit bars around breakfast time, very clean environment
Conscotractor's career lot is uncertain, you can get stuck in the same role & pay forever
