    Pros

    Good place to work when you are hurting for money.

    Cons

    Company kept on moving me around to all 3 shifts months after months, and it make it very hard for me to fit my schedule due to new borned twins. I didn't like that at all, I rather work my shift.

    Pay, Only Pay is a pro they say i have to write 20 words minimum .. well the pay is only decent part of this job

    Pros

    There is always work, I'm in the army so the bosses understand when I go to drill and don't complain about it

    Cons

    Atmosphere sucks, everyone seems to have a bad mood always because they work weekends and it's mandatory. You see the same faces everyday no matter what and you can't move up because it is unionized. Seniority always wins even if your the best worker there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees because they are the ones working with the same routines and know the flaws on the machines.
