    Pros

    Fantastic Benefits, work independently, great starting pay, ability to "move up" with the company. Great communication with boss. You learn a lot while working with mechanics.

    Cons

    Crazy hours at the main plant; 9pm-9am and 9am to 9pm. Doctors appointments are not excused, unless you are in the emergency room. It's a smaller company, only 8 people work here, so we get on eachothers nerves more often. We work contracted inside of KIK, so we are located in an aerosol company (dangerous).

    Advice to Management

    Possibly review the points system. Work more closely with employees. Thank your employees once in a while, we work hard.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Turtle & Hughes (Elkhart, IN) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Manager sat me down with the buyer and asked me questions. They make you feel comfortable and confident! First, I sent in my resume. The manager called and set up an interview. He asked me questions such as- How would hiring me be beneficial to the company? How would you better organize the storeroom? After a criminal background check and a urine drug screen, I was immediatly hired and have been there since. I love it.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were fairly easy to answer except, he did ask me if I was an animal, what would I be and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate. He gave me more than what I was asking for right from the beginning. With another plus being the great benefits! Great Health and Dental insurance, 401k option, life insurance, and a health savings plan.
