Pros: physical work keeps you moving and in shape
Cons: no life because you work weeks/weekends straight through with no time off for weeks on end, work atmospere is very unprofessional, favoritism is shown, a company this big cares only about it's bottom line not the employees, no consistency with planning heavy work loads, no consistency with communication from management to employees and from department to department
A typical day at work you come in, log into computer and log in for work, report to management, get assigned to a work station, go to work station, wait to get assigned what job you will be running, once assigned job you wait for job to be brought to your machine which could take 10 minutes to an hour. Once you get job, you request supplies for that – more... job and wait for supplies. While waiting for supplies you log into computer and load job. You physically set cutter blades, from there you make your way down the machine, physically setting up for inserts, envelopes, metering, and then sorting at the end.
Once mail comes out at the end, you fan mail checking the meter dates and the address to make sure they are centered. You fill proper mail tray and set it on palate. Once palate is filled, palate is taken away to be weighed, wrapped, and loaded onto a truck. At the end of shift you log out, clean station, report to manager, you log back into computer and sign out for the day. – less
