Good JOB to have. Decent benefits, But dont expect a carreer.

Team Assembler (Current Employee)
Joliet, IL

ProsBenefits are mostly decent, very stable job. They will go out of thier way to accommodate any time off you need most of the time.

ConsPay raises are not performance based, they are a small percentage across the entire company (2%-3%) per year. (not even cost of living). 50 hours per week at a min in most positions. Usually more, which in my opinion is too much. Not much room for advancement. The largest single raise you will getis through thier "mastery program" ($1.50 hr)

Advice to Senior ManagementThey should stop treating people like children in there policies and disciplinary actions. Oh and base they pay on performance, then folks might acctually do what you want them too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
