    I worked at A. Duie Pyle part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I was hired I was offered $13 an hour, part time. With a $1,000 bonus after 1,000 hours worked. The second shift (afternoons/evenings to 10 pm or later) for my college schedule well. They reward hard work with more hours and a flexible schedule. Easy to make friends on the dock.

    Cons

    If you work hard, they only expect more of you. I was quadrupling or quintupling production goals regularly, though they only wanted more out of me. I would be stuck working later to help close the shift, missing out on some Friday nights. I would make sacrifices to help the shift run smoothly and was rarely rewarded for it. If one person slacks off and ruins production numbers, the whole team gets reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Give your high-producing staff a break sometimes. If workers are not meeting goals, fire them for the sake of the people who work hard to make up for it.
