Pros: ease of being hired
Cons: the atmosphere, work/life balance, hours, required overtime, constant understaffing, inept management, lack of organization
The shift I was told I would be working and that I agreed to work was to inclued a MAXIMUM of two 12 hour shift a work week. The second week I was there, I began my rotating schedule of three consecutive 12 hour shifts one week and four consecutive 12 hour shifts the second week.
I was not given proper training because my boss quit my third week there, one of the other techs was completely inept and pushed out of the department, and the only other tech had to take time off for family issues. Understaffing is obviously a huge issue as well.
The environment is also a very negative and non-nuturing one. People quit in droves on a monthly basis, and production operators are regularly scheduled for 70 hour work weeks. I was also told on my first day that no one is forced to work overttime, yet here I am scheduled for an average of 44 hours a week and the production operators are worked to the bone, without volunteering to do so. On a week that I had to go into the doctor because I was sick 2 out of the first 4 weeks I worked, I was scheduled to work 54 hours. Work-life balance is a laughable concept at this company.
Management is again, laughable. The quality department alone was in complete disarray, organization was clearly a foreign concept and keeping people that STILL could not understand the responsibilities of their position after 5 months is just negligent. It seems like this statement can be applied across the board.
