    good old boy network!

    Manager (Former Employee) Fountain Inn, SC

    ProsPay is OK, hours are good. Great benefits. Upper management is average at best. If you have no ambitions you will retire very happy.

    Conshaving to do the same job day in and day WITHOUT getting better at it. If you improve on a 10 year old stat, you are punished for rocking the boat. Over charging the customer to make up for poor manufacturing ability.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProduction and lean operation is a must. There are people who go to work to work, the savings are proof of a job done well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An unfortunate letdown.

    Seaming Operator/Finishing Dpt (Former Employee) Brunswick, GA

    ProsPay is as fair as it can be and they spare nothing for training. Safety is important and promoted; most PPE is supplied. Sometimes the shift/schedule allows for long weekends (3-4 days). Overtime is allowed when possible.

    ConsYou may have to start through a temp service--which can have it's own challenges separate from the Fort Dearborn company. Some of the shifts can be long, especially 12hr nights. Some weekly shifts may be short of 40hrs. The work schedule changes often and the facility is lacking ergonomically.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize talent and qualifications of talents with the same passion seniority is recognized. Allow for an anonymous/protected venue for sincere concerns suggestions. Improve ergonomics in departments where needed (e.g. floor mats etc.), especially in conjunction with lengthy work hours.
