    I have been working at Spectrum Brands full-time

    Pros

    Fun people to be around, all the overtime you could ever imagine, on avaerage 2-3 days off a month, don't have to worry about being home with your family.

    Cons

    Temps, dirty restrooms, people who enforce the weekend workload are rarely there, horrible organization, shift changes are poorly executed so its a free for all on certain shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Find out the credentials of your leaders, better background checks on employees, and stop treating us like undereducated trained monkeys. Just because some people do not have that piece of paper from an over priced university, it doesn't make them inferior to you.
