Paid weekly. Clean conditions. The work is not very hard. No heavy lifting is allowed.
For a company that is over 100 years old you would think that they would be very organized but they are not. They are actually over managed. Because of this there can be a lot of wasted time. There can also be a lot of lost production because people don't get the correct training or the supervisor is to busy with paperwork to see that standards are met. This is particularly a problem in there paint dept. Buffers will reject parts that have small dust particles that they are supposed to polish out. These parts get sent back to the paint dept. for reprocessing wasting a lot of time and material. They try to make all the jobs there so that "anyone" can do them. This is good. However, some of the work takes skill that has to be learned through experience. Things are not always put part "A with B" and send it on. Not being full time and moved around some people never catch on.
Advice to Management
Your losing a lot of time and money by not producing at a steady rate year round with a full time work force. I KNOW, YOUR GOING TO TELL ME THAT I DON'T SEE THE BIG PICTURE. YOU NEED TO SPEND MORE TIME IN THE REAL WORLD OF PRODUCTION. YOUR CHARTS AND GRAPHS WON'T TELL YOU THE WHOLE STORY NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU STARE AT THEM.
