Pros: the people you work with
Cons: management, breaks, leave time, work comp, expectations
I love the people I work with. Couldn't ask for a better second family. The work is fast paced if everything runs right. Lots of stock and machinery issues and management doesn't seem to know how to control any of it.
General floor managers seem to care and give a lending hand to anyone. It's the upper management. Upper management treats people like – more... they are a number and only care about the number of the tires. Not the people making them or what they have to go through to do it.
Benefits are some of the best I've ever had. Work comp is a joke. If your injured in any way they will push you under the rug until the problem just fixes itself.
Leave time is also a joke. Your given 5 days of leave a year. After 5 years they give you 5 more, but they freeze it to pay you when they want to randomly shut down.
The best part are the people. They are what make the job tolerable to go to everyday.
The worst is the way the company makes you feel.
It's sad. It used to be the best job I've ever had. They used to act like they cared about everyone from the floor workers on up. Now, your just a number that can be replaced and set packing whenever they feel like it.
Not to mention the long term health issues. The air is bad, the components have harmful chemicals that your in constant contact with daily, there's no windows and if there is its covered in yellow nasty build up so bad you can't see out of them and that's just from the stuff floating in the air. The air that's going into your body. – less
