Overall this was a great place to work. The pay is very generous once you're outside the probationary period. The work is pretty darn hard but it is rewarded and the hours are usually not bad. Overtime is often available.
Not much call for day time work, but if you don't mind afternoons and overnights, it's a great place. You're so busy most of the time, the hours fly by and you don't even notice you've done a full 8 hour day.
Hot and cold days get extra breaks for water, cooldowns and warm up.
Company provided free training for many courses, options to take outside training programs and have portions paid for, almost all the managers are great and have been brought up and trained from floor employees so they know how hard employees have to work so with that understanding they are flexible in many cases.
H.R. people listen and help, awesome benefits. If I had the chance in the future I would definitely give it a strong consideration to return.
Training opportunities, great pay, hard work
