    Pros

    Excellent benefits, yearly bonuses based on shop performance metrics, Cross training opportunities, time and a half overtime and double time on Sundays.

    Cons

    Expect to work 3000+ hrs per year.
    Senior management uneducated and not supportive of shop floor personnel. Man-hour management is non existant. Many shifts and departments running under staffed with little time off during outage season.
