Not the best place I've ever worked, but it's a solid job.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) – Smyrna, TN – November 11, 2016
It's an automotive plant, run by company men. There's little regard for work/life balance. Lots of micro-management, and an overwhelming amount of bureaucratic favoritism. But they're in need of people, so it's easy to get hired and stay that way. It's also easy to get in trouble over petty policies and there's a severe lack of vacation time available. The plant shuts down for 2 weeks each summer and then a week and a half during Christmas. The problem is, your "vacation time" is predetermined for those periods. If you wish to take off any other time of the year, you get 3 days paid, 3 days unpaid. Past that, you're on corrective action. If you're cool with never seeing your family, this is the place for you.
Miserable work/life balance.
