    The pay and benefits are on the higher end, strict and mature place, some good people.

    The work is hard, physical labor. Dangerous. Very hot in the summer. Long 12hr rotating day and night shift. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to the valuable employees, even if they make one mistake. Skilled team members take a lot of time and effort to train and their rookie mistakes cost the company both money and customer confidence.
