    Pros

    Great pay, simple work, plenty of overtime opportunities, and friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Too many lazy co-workers. Some of the trainers literally fell asleep on me at times, and they admitted to sleeping on the job. Work itself is very boring, which explains the sleeping but still makes it hard to get through 12 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Better rotation to avoid boredom would help a bunch, and seriously do something about the people that take advantage of the union rules.
