    Pros

    Decent benefits package
    401K with match
    On-site 24 HR fitness center
    Paid Time Off

    Cons

    NO upward mobility

    Shift work/weekend work/swing shift work
    2 Tiered wage scales for the same jobs (new hires make approx. 30% less)
    Reduced COLA/other wage increases

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within!
    Eliminate 2 tier pay scales
    Hire enough employees to complete jobs without overtime
    Promote qualified candidates from within instead of hiring under-qualified outside candidates
    Reduce new hire turnover rates by eliminating the swing shifts and increasing wage to the senior tier scale

    I worked at Continental full-time

    Pros

    The actual work wasn't bad once you get the hang of it.

    Good first experience in that type of work.

    I heard the pay recently got raised $2 to $14/h.

    Cons

    I personally got bounced around a lot and sometimes I don't think they knew what to do with me (my shift over staffed).

    I got sent over to run machines that kept having problems. Nobody liked it over there and kept complaining about it.

    Language barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Even if somebody is a quick worker, don't expect them to be the fastest working on parts they're not used to.
