Pros: paid benefits, 3 30min breaks during 8 hr shift
Cons: micro managing dept managers, the illusion of 1 culture, lack of communication, hrs notice of working on weekends.
I understand it's a business, and must continue to run as such, but not being able to plan for family or other functions for the weekend does put a strain on a person. You may not know you're working on that weekend until 3p Friday. Not a week ahead, not 2 weeks. But only a few hours. I have learned a great deal from them, good and bad. My company is – more... closing soon, and just like a previous plant closure, I will probably miss my co-workers the most. Most of our management staff could use a bit of brushing up on people skills, and not just micro manage and go home for the day at 3, 4 and 5p while we're there 24hrs a day. My direct supervisor on the other hand is probably hands down the most dedicated person I've ever encountered. And she actually does consider us in my dept, her family. – less
