No family time!
production (Former Employee), Hershey, PAJuly 24, 2012
Pros: pay
Cons: spend your life at work, bad health insurance
Plan on living there. Work week consists of 7 days a week and 16 hour days. Good pay, no life. Health benefits suck! My job was cut due to corporate greed! Good luck!

Unethical management , unrealistic expectations
employee (Current Employee), lancasterJune 28, 2012
Pros: it pays the bills, unlimited overtime (forced)
Cons: poor management
The company has absolutely no consideration for the "average" employee. The total focus is on making money for the Upper Managements profit shares. There is absolutely no work life balance and the employees are expected to make sacrifices ( i.e. forced overtime) for poor management decisions. The company is basically run under a "sweat shop" mentality by upper management.

Good Afternoon, I hope this message finds you abroad, but i would like to ask: How long did it take you, to get an "International Opportunity?" I am interested in applying for a Sales Rep position, but am here in Seattle, WA and would look forward to working abroad, if I get the chance. Please advise. Many Thanks!

Program Analyst (Former Employee), Hershey, PAApril 22, 2012
Pros: very relaxed environment
Cons: not much room for career advancment
A typical day would start with review of support calls from the night before. Project review was next step and work on projects.
Learn system support and maintenance.
Management style was hands off but involved with all aspect of project life cycle.
Great team of workers to work with. Very supportive of each other and complement each other.
Hardest part of the job was helping people without knowing who they are what they look like.
Working with people and helping them with technical problems was most enjoyable part of the job.

ambiente de trabajo agradable en algunas lineas
ayudante general (Former Employee), General Escobedo, Nuevo LeonNovember 10, 2014
Pros: seguro social
Cons: en algunas lineas no las habia breik
Ambiente de Trabajo era diferente en cada area de trabajo ya que ahy buenos lideres y otros no tan buenos que les entregaban la gente y no les decian que hacer.
Aprendi que si puedo con lo que me pidan que haga.
La direccion y gerencia no ahy quejas todo muy bien.
La parte muy dificil del trabajo creo que es no darte una induccion en planta con la persona indicada.
Lo que mas me gusto es el trabajo y mis compañeras.

Quality Engineer (Current Employee), El Salto, JALMay 28, 2014
Pros: seguro medico y fondo de ahorro
Cons: trabajas alrededor de 12 horas al día
Es una compañía grandiosa, tienes diferentes actividades diarias, donde laboras en una planta de producción tienes facilidad para comunicarte y relacionarte con áreas distintas aprender y absorber mucha información. La parte más difícil sería ser una persona cerrada al cambio. Mis compañeros de trabajo son personas muy especiales dentro de está compañía.
