    Good hours, Managers are flexible

    Cons

    Lots of overturn recently, slow on filling jobs, work lots of over time, must have a degree to advance and have to be in current position for 18 months before leaving dept.

    Cross train all people in dept., don't worry about trying to outsource so many tasks to india.

    I worked at Eaton full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent vacation package, good people to work with. They help you when your department gets behind and they are caught up or ahead.

    Cons

    Poor organization, no heat or A/C, hard to advance. Once you get into a department you are stuck there. Seniority does not count toward bidding for jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the drunks and their good-ol-boy system. Put air conditioning in the plant so that the machinery doesn't keep breaking down and people do not keep leaving because of the heat in the Sherman plant. It would be more cost effective in the long run. What is the point of buying all that expensive machinery if you are not going to protect it?

    compensation in terms of pay raises when you exceed your annual goals is like a joke.
