Pros: we had a very nice time at aw. at my time of employment we were given profit sharing, health benefits, 401k match, full time employment, and very fun times.
Cons: only negative i can say is the heat in the summer time. it was extremely hot and very uncomfortable.
My job at AW was very rewarding for me. I miss the people I worked with, I do get together with them whenever it is possible. After 24 years I decided it was time to do something different. I then moved to my career job choice. I took care of the elderly for many years. I enjoyed this until recently, I worked for private people. I need to be around more people on a more regular basis.
I started work at 4:30AM and worked until 2PM. My first duty was to do the numbers. That means I needed to record all of the production from the day before in my group. This had to be done accurately or it didn't match the schedule. Several times I would call supervisors to get information needed so I could continue on with my day. I went out to floor to count several pieces of products. These counts had to be accurate or I would have to figure why we were so off from the counts in the system. We had several different pieces of products and we were given a week to get these done. We worked at our own pace and had to be helpful to others if they were behind. All these figures had to be put in a system on the computer. We were like on our own, but were watched by superiors. This was great because I always got finished on time and accurately. This job was the easiest job I had in the 24 years of service. It was a great way to end my career with Andersen's.
