    Pros

    Compensation, Overtime, Union perks, decent pay

    You will work overtime - tons of it. Repetitive tasks - this is a factory so you will be doing the same thing all day every day. No real room for vertical advancement or career growth.

    The pay is good, the work isn't too hard, and its a great place to gain factory experience.

    I worked at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Wages are very competitive & great benefits

    Cons

    * Wages are so good its hard to find another opportunity if you wish to part ways (feel like your trapped & that gets taken advantage of)
    * Too many top management treat their employees poorly. There is no place to make a complaint privately & you are considered the villain and retaliated against.
    * Plants are over capacity with work - leaving no room for error on OLD equipment
    * Money has not been put back into the companies to maintain or replace equipment used to manufacture today's high volume products.

    Advice to Management

    * I was much happier with the company when I started than when I left - re-evaluate who you have sitting in your directors chairs and review the choices that they have made since they were promoted.
    * Go back to what worked, instead of trying to reinvent everything for everyone to be the same. Each division is different.
