    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.
