    Pros

    Enjoyed working with my co-workers. Leadership is great and is devoted to clients and employees. This company has integrity and is always looking ahead to where they will be in the future.

    Cons

    There are two levels of management(American and Japanese) and sometimes it gets in the way of achieving results. Everything else was great and I do not have anything else to add.

    I worked at JVC Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you can make it to full time employment, you'll see at or near 40 steady hours per week. There's some really amazing people there who strive to achieve. A large amount of voluntary overtime during the peak season.

    Cons

    Do to cost cutting measures new employees will never attain the same position and/or payscale as others who have been grandfathered in. There's some really terrible people there who have politicized the system to a point where unless you play their game you'll never be able to progress. A large amount of mandatory overtime during the peak season.Recently acquired by a competitor, not sure of what the future holds there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within based on merit, not politics, which will give a fresh and renewed sense of purpose to the long term FTEs who mostly look at their position as a job and not a career.

    Former Employee - Production/Assembly in Kennesaw, GA
    Former Employee - Production/Assembly in Kennesaw, GA

    I worked at JVC Company as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Seasonal employment is steady work. You always get your 40 hours and have opportunities to get overtime.

    It was easy to get on the day shift, unlike a lot of shift jobs.

    Physical labor, like pallet stacking = free exercise.

    We got 3 days off every week.

    Cons

    There are many reason they've been placing nonstop ads online looking for workers in the Atlanta area.

    low pay (minimum wage), stagnant wage scale (no raises unless you go off the line to become a machine operator or work in shipping/receiving; team/line leads get paid the same as regular temps but they get more responsibility). Just about every production worker is a temp, even those who have been there for upwards of a decade, and management emphasizes this point VERY much.

    Stasi- or prison-level security policies such as unpaid and lengthy security procedures to enter and leave the building, not being allowed to take leftovers back home (either had to keep food there or throw it out), not being allowed to go to the restroom without a restroom pass (yes, like the ones in elementary school)

    Limited water availability: workers can't bring water onto the floor, and the one designated water area on the work floor was a 5 gallon orange jug meant to be used by well over 100 people. Going to either water jug (the one by the bathrooms or the orange one) and actually being able to get water was a crapshoot; either they'd be out of cups, water, or both. I seriously got dehydrated the first few days I was there, and even when I quit, it was very difficult to stay adequately hydrated, especially while one is doing a job that involves physical exertion, such as stacking heavy boxes on pallets.

    30 minute lunch for a 10-hour shift. There were also two 15s, but a longer lunch, even 45 minutes, would be a lot better.

    Some of the work is literally painful, like snapping on plastic pieces for hours on end. Not a good job at all for anyone wishing to avoid repetitive stress injuries. Band-aids are a hot commodity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees, even the temps, as though they're human beings. There is no morale at the lowest end of the pay scale; work quality suffers as a result. Even if a job is classified as unskilled, take into consideration that production and assembly jobs are hard on the body and require a significant amount of work ethic and a lot of physical ability. Improve access to water on the floor (more water areas, more frequent refills of the jugs, or something with a much larger capacity), this is a real safety issue. Lengthen lunch break and allow employees to take small amounts of leftover food and drinks home since you already require everything to be in a clear container. Change the way you deal with the fact that employees have actual bodily functions.

    Pros

    I had the best manager and the best working experience there. Everyone was like a family to me.

    Cons

    JVC is losing market share quickly and they are not a player in the consumer electronics anymore. Outlook looks grim.
