Work conditions were not the bestt for producttion, but we made it fun
Assembly (Former Employee) – Dayton, TN – October 23, 2015
I liked my job at Goodman's MFG. It had it's ups and downs, as does all jobs. The factory is closing anytime, therefore the opportunity for advancement is null and void. Making air conditioners was fun, but like I said, the conditions in the factory was horrible, over 100 in the summer, no fans, dirty, freezing in the winter, below 20 in some areas, no heaters. Parts would run dry, or made improperly so work load increased, hours were hit and miss during these times, only 6 PTO days a year and 1 week vacation that had to be used during plant shut down at Christmas. My co-workers were great, we made it fun. We had a great boss, he made it fun too. That made it bearable. But, it's factory work.
When you win a job bid, your pay does go up significantly.
Mandatory 7 day work weeks, sometimes 10-12 hr days, and can't take a day off without receiving a point
