    Pros

    4 x 10 hr days. (three days off)

    Cons

    13.75 to start and no raises for a year and when you do get a raise it's .50! Really??? Yes...have fun.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, offer incentive for quality not just production. Damaged product on the floor makes everybody's job harder!

    Pros

    No one standing over me. I was on my own to do my job as I pleased. I made my schedule to an extent.

    Cons

    I has an emotionally unstable supervisor which affected my peers as well as myself.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a look at 1st level managers with personal issues. An unstable supervisor is a ticking timebomb.
