      Pros

      Shearer's is a great learning ground. Fresh out of college, throughout my 6 year tenure I had the opportunity to work in various roles at 2 different locations. New challenges consistently arose.

      Cons

      There were a lot of really long hours.

      Pros

      There's always work. If you finish your tasks before your shift but don't want to leave you can transfer into a different department to help out.

      Cons

      On the production floor there's more hours than you can handle some times. Which is not terrible if you need/like it but there are some weeks when one person is able to work 13 -12 hours shifts if they really wanted to, although they are trying to hire more people so they do not need to do that

      Pros

      Great pay and affordable benefits. My shift was like a family and we all worked together to get the job done. Easy to advance in the company based on your own work ethic and performance.

      Cons

      The hours and schedule make it hard to have family time for b and d shifts( in my opinion) I felt like my children never got to see me and I stayed tired trying to catch up on home life and sleep. Attendance policy is all discipline and hardly any incentive. (they were working on new things prior to the end of my employment though)

      Pros

      Decent pay, decent temporary job

      Cons

      Don’t count on making a career at Shearers. If you are related to a management level employee, you can count on promotions, raises and job security, otherwise, just count on it being a placeholder job
