    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time

    Pros

    The people you share the job with are excellent. Many of them are kind, approachable and more than willing to acquaint others to the job.
    The work is simple and generally not frustrating.

    Cons

    The rate of pay is not livable as a single adult and the disparity in workload (Some cells are overstaffed while others require fewer employees to work 60 hours a week) is cause for concern.

    Advice to Management

    Cross-train employees to balance the workload across the plant, instead of exhausting the few that have the knowledge to complete projects.

    Pros

    Night shifts are usually laid back, but still fairly productive. Also plenty of liberal allowences for personal projects, and interdepartmental training.

    Cons

    General disgruntled mood toward the company, and animosity toward other shifts on all crews. Little qualification required, and slim chance of consentual career advancement. Medium to low wages.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on poor atitudes and toxic lower management, also encourage a more fair distribution of labor / production requirements between shifts and departments.
