    I worked at Tower International full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Challenging as well as rewarding work. Modern equipment with skilled workers. The right tool for the job. The type of job that made me look forward to going to work.

    Cons

    This division of Tower is no longer in business. They liquidated all the equipment and sold the building. They had a good thing going but a few wrong turns put them out of the running.

    Pros

    Pay is decent due to mandatory overtime.

    Cons

    10 hours a day, 7 days a week for stretches that last nearly a month. After this you may get a weekend off - only to go right back to 10hrs/7days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to run your production line properly and more efficiently. Jobs within the plant that used to be run by two people prior to downsizing are now run by just one person. Makes sense right?
