    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, if you're tough enough overall not a bad job to have. But if you can't handle long hours and hard work don't even try. You gotta have thick skin and common sense for this job.

    Cons

    As a machine operator it's often all eyes on you. You have to be able to take harsh criticism and keep your focus at the same time. Most of the time supers have no idea how much work you are actually doing and like to bust your balls because they don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bite the hands that runs the plant.

    Pros

    I liked the third shift. I liked keeping busy. I liked working with other people.I liked doing the paper work.

    I didn't like when a trailer was late with the product to be shipped out. We were not kept busy while waiting. I would rather be kept busy working at a steady pas than to have down time.
