Pros: you make enough money to drive to work, (if you already owned a car because you sure couldn't buy one on these slave wages!!)
Cons: treated like a prisoner at work, locked down, security at the door, authoritarian - just a place that will be like a lead weight on your shoulders, every minute you are there you are used
Working as an “899 employee” for 3M in Valley, NE is an experience I will never forget. 3M intentionally takes advantage of and abuses federal law by using the law to hire only “temps” (who they don’t have to pay benefits to & can only work 899 hours before having to give benefits or terminate). At that point, they terminate you and IMMEDIATELY hire – more... another temp. This is against the law. They have made a cottage industry of this and are abusing the intent of the federal law. They openly don’t care & actually have perm employees dedicated to nothing but cycling temps in and out on a constant basis. Again, this type of behavior is not the intent of federal law.
In other words – they NEED FULLTIME EMPLOYEES BUT ARE ABUSING FEDERAL LAW BY REPEATEDLY HIRING TEMPS TO AVOID PAYING EMPLOYEES BENEFITS OR MAKING THEM FULL TIME. Talk about un-American, unlawful and just plain inhuman to good people hoping to live the American Dream by starting low, working hard & being recognized for it by obtaining full time employment (or at least having an honest chance at it). IN ONE SHIFT I CAN MAKE THOUSANDS AND THOUSAND OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PRODUCT…..AND FOR THIS I CAN ONLY MAKE 90 DOLLARS AND CHANGE (with no benefits)……… AND JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, GET KICKED TO THE CURB AFTER THEY USE AND MISLED ME. This kind of corporate behavior is not all that far from slavery….they know no one can live on 10.66 an hour and they go into the relationship with the premeditated intent to use you for 899 hours and then hire another, and another and another to replace you. That is the very thing that makes what they are doing, illegal. No place to work……LOUSY VALUES!!!! – less
