Favorite job ever
Production Worker/Assembler (Former Employee), New Albany, INDecember 17, 2014
Pros: great pay and people
Cons: i want to be hired full time.
Great place to work, Good pay and great employees. Human resources and management are friendly. Free monthly giveaways of a product we made. I was hired for a seasonal position so it makes it hard to leave a company you enjoyed working for. Keeping my fingers crossed for a future full time position.

Lavergne Steel
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNDecember 10, 2014
Pros: nice respectful work place
Cons: when work got slow and hours got cut.
Some days I would do production welding jobs. Some days I would sandblast all day. I would also make deliveries for the company. Some days I would work in the office doing payroll, filling and answering phones. Some days I would supervise over the employees when the owners were out of town. I had to make sure their were plenty of employees on the job – more... sites to get the work done.
The hardest part of the job was learning to weld.
The most enjoyable part was out doing the men on welding production jobs and proving them wrong when they said I couldn't do it because it was a mans line of work. – less

Productive and fun work inviorment
Assembly Line Production Worker (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INDecember 8, 2014
Pros: are breaks are a decent amount of time, vinding mechines have decent snacks.
Cons: its cold in the wearhouse, we dont have a caffiteria.
First we start off with the attendance sheets, my supervisor makes sure everyone is at work. Then we go to our lines and wait for our line lead to give us instructions on what we are doing today and how to handle our product. I've learned a lot by working with General Mills, I've learned that working as a team gets the job done faster and easier, Speed – more... is also one of the many techniques I've learned, in order too get the job done on time you must work with speed and pay attention at all times to what you are doing. The hardest part of the job for me would be lifting heavy objects such as pallets, heavy product, or boxes. Sometimes I need help lifting other times I can do it myself. The most enjoyable part would have too be working as a team and getting to know your team, I work in various lines so meeting all the people I work with and learning different ways too handle product is interesting too me. – less

Used to be a good place to work
Sr. Scientist II (Former Employee), Golden Valley, MNNovember 19, 2014
Pros: some benefits
Cons: tense place to work
Used to be a good place to work. Tough place now. Lots of tension everyday. A mix of good manager with really bad ones.
If business goes bad (kind of common these days), prepare for lay-off's. Tough to advance, very competitive. Some good colleagues.
