    Pros

    As a full-time salary employee the pay is competitive and the benefits are great. There are some perks available to all employees such as local discounts and free company sponsored events. There are a lot of opportunities to work overtime and a variety of shifts to work. The people are nice and there is a certain level of camaraderie. There are onsite vendors to provide a wide range of food options. There is a pretty good employee recognition program where peers can nominate others who have above and beyond their duties to help.

    Cons

    It's a corporate company and with that comes corporate rules. Training outside of hand soldering is extremely lacking. Advancement is difficult unless on a succession plan. Then, qualified or not, people on the plan get promoted even when they aren't the best candidate. When there are job openings management usually has someone in mind so applying for them is a waste of time. People in the bull pens have this attitude they are better than the manufacturing floor workers. Morale is suffering.

    Advice to Management

    Show people appreciation at a leadership level. Be transparent and honest. At communication meetings associates don't care what Plexus made last year. To them they see how much money they aren't getting in their piddly $9 per hour job. They want to know how they contributed made the site successful and what Plexus Nampa is doing to show they care about them. Most don't feel motivated but are only staying for the paycheck. Go back to basics on leadership training and recognize peoples strengths. Listen to and address their concerns. Yes, it's a stressful environment but management gets to leave everyday at five and doesn't have to work overtime or on the weekends.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Plexus.

    Interview

    Was interviewed through temp agency. Was so easy it wasn't funny. Everyone gets through. You go to the temp agency office and they do some very basic interview questions. It lasts approximately 15 minutes from start to finish. They do a quick drug test and give you the results real fast.
