    I have been working at Midwest Manufacturing full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are extremely flexible, especially for part-time; they're willing to work around student scheduling. They have some nice reward programs, safety bonuses and gifts around the holidays. MM employees also get a 10% discount on anything they purchase at Menards stores. The workforce is fairly diverse.

    Cons

    The priority is definitely on just getting product out the door. If quality suffers, the mindset is typically to just get it on the truck and hope it doesn't come back. The phrase "Oh well, not my house" is a bit of an unofficial motto. I've seen roof trusses with cracked or rotting lumber go out, flooring trusses with considerable blood stains from a broken thumb going out without so much as a wiping off. They somehow forgot to put my name on the schedule roughly once a week, which was confusing because my schedule never changed. They nickle&dime you with your time (for example, you have to clock out to use the restroom, and to get into the breakroom, even if it's to get to a safety meeting held there) which is particularly bad because almost all of their reward programs require a minimum number of work hours by a certain date to qualify for, and these usually come out to a little over 40 hours a week average. And at $9/hour, the base pay rate is f***ing laughable for the work you do. I was making as much stocking shelves at Kohl's. Advancement and training was very political, and even job placement tended to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit of education for the shift managers on just how to organize a shift would be an improvement, and a higher dedication to product quality.
