Really hard to move up
Product Assembler/ Nightshift (Current Employee), Clayton, NCSeptember 23, 2014
I have been working here for almost 3 years and it seems to me that working your way up from the shop floor is near to impossable. I have applied to many positions at least 20 job posting and only heard back from 1. It would also seem that no matter how hard you work it reslly does not get you anywhere on the floor.
