    I have been working at East Penn full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health Benefits are better than most. People are friendly for the most part. They like to tell you the business is fantastic but you won't see anything for it except videos every three months saying thanks.

    Cons

    You won't receive any time off from work until you're there 3 years. Terrible pay for office workers. Construction everywhere so you have to leave very early to get to work, you can't swipe in late or you get written up.

    Advice to Management

    Change the time off policy. People with kids get written up for having "too many doctors notes" but you won't give them any days to use. One dedicated week (during the most expensive time of the year) is nothing. Cost of living increase of $0.15 is ridiculous and a joke. Keep the turkey and your $1 lunches and give me a real increase in pay.

    I worked at East Penn full-time

    Pros

    You get a pay check

    Cons

    Your lead count will increase, sometimes dramatically in a few months. Wearing respirators everyday. Not being able to go to the bathroom when you need to. Unless you are training for the job everything is push, push, push. Some of the woman that work there really think they are above everyone else and get the easier jobs or will not do the rotation procedure cause they want an easy night. Personnel lies to you about your raises or bonuses. High rate of turnover with new employees.

    Cons

    Very hot during the summer
    Dealing with lead
    Sometimes get mandatory overtime but this can be a plus also

    Advice to Management

    Fire the people that are lazy.
