    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Hours are pretty good. Doesnt get to hot inside.

    They except to much work out of one person. (Exp.) They want you to grind down imperfections in the floor pan in under 30 secs getting everything which is nearly impossible. Benefits arent that great, pretty costly.

    Advice to Management

    Dont except to meet tak time the whole shift while working 3 different work cells
