hot workplace with hard labor
Packaging and Filling Machine Operator and Tender (Former Employee) – Corning, NY – March 27, 2014
every day you come in, wait in line to clock in, pick up a schedule and then go off to your scheduled production line. the job can become tedious as you may be running on little to no sleep as you are on swing shift when you start out. your body takes time to adjust to the hours required for the job. the best part about the job is the shift differential. if you are working overtime, you get an additional half hour before your overtime starts. coworkers will always be in competition with you because of seniority. if you started working the same day as another person, you may be second on the list to get something you want based on seniority. job advancement is not based on performance, probably because the hardest part of the job is showing up to work, not doing the job well.

heat of the plant, poor building structure allows for weather like snow and rain in the plant, co workers in constant competition with you to advance their own careers
