    LONG LONG LONG HOURS LOTS OF OVERTIME

    Aug 23, 2013 - Assembler in Winston-Salem, NC

    Pros

    Lots of hours, co workers are friendly and humble. The day that I quit was the happiest I had been since I started there.

    Cons

    There is no communication between the assembly workers and management, they could care less about you. Which means your are completely in the dark about whats going on in the company. Long hours, which equals very little free time outside of work. Low pay, I started out at 10.41 an hour which is garbage pay. No explanation of why we worked so many over time hours. No real union, to go along with your team leads who are also in the union will get you in trouble with management, so the there is no real brotherly union that looks out for you. 30 minutes for lunch on a 10 hour day. Quality did not matter it was all about quantity. Micro managed. Very little respect from corporate to the production workers.

    Very few rays of sunshine. Run away.

    Pros

    You will receive experience and training that is difficult to get elsewhere.

    Cons

    You are not considered a person. You are just another resource to be used well past depletion. Your life and family do not matter. You will be forced to work absolutely ridiculous hours just to try and keep your head above water. God help you if you have a rare skill as not only will you be drug to the middle of nowhere for long lengths of time, you will also be expected to somehow take care of your normal duties at the plant. Management subscribes to the 'do it anyway, we don't care what you have to sacrifice' school of thought that should have been proven ineffective in the 1950's. You will be threatened, disrespected, insulted, and you're considered defective if you don't buy into it. People are hired without the skills or aptitude for a particular role and, instead of being held accountable, will be rewarded with others being required to pick up the slack. Oh, and 'salary' merely means 'nonunion employee who doesn't get paid overtime but IS expected to use PTO to cover so much as leaving 1 hour early and will be threatened with termination if he/she doesn't willingly work holidays when effective work can't take place anyway.' Don't expect flexible hours or the ability to plan anything not directly related to playing catch up due to another's lack of planning. Some other schmuck WILL screw up and YOU will be expected to either fix or take the fall for it. the Shortsighted, narrow-minded, self-serving, arrogant, just plain nasty. These are but a few descriptors that fit extremely well. Thanks to our exceedingly poor retention rate, management approaches new hires with a poor attitude. This breeds contempt between employees and management and has turned into one heckuva vicious cycle. Instead of trying to accept where the problem begins, fingers get pointed and blame is distributed, justifying the same treatment for the next poor soul. Run. Run as if the devil himself were on your heels. If you walk through these doors, he will be.
