Above average pay, sub par everything elseStressful/sometimes dangerous work environment. Management is there just as a title - minimal training/orientation...most days the boss was picking his teeth and on his phone in his office. Make sure you buy all your own tools, or you will spend many hours trying to find "something that works", which you won't find anyway.6 weeks on days, 2 weeks on nights mandatory rotating shifts (in some departments).DO NOT REPORT any safety incident, for example with a forklift, even if they actually hit you, or you will be fired. the mentality of this workplace is as such - much easier to ignore/fire you than solve any problem, since "its been done that way for many years."Never say no to overtime.Many employees hired/fired within the first 6-12 months.Very low employee moral.Terrible benefits plan (NO DENTAL).
