    Pros

    Lots of hours and ok benefits

    Cons

    They convince you to go through with unsafe work. Push employees into coming back regardless of how severe their work injury may have been. Only get one day off a week even when the union contract says we should recieve 2 days off every other week minimum and that they should be consecutive. Some of the management will do anything including lying through their teeth in order to make themselves look good. Much of... the equipment isn't designed for your safety in mind. Don't expect any kind of life outside of this job because you areny going to have one.

    Advice to Management

    If safety is your number one concern the management should be trained to listen to employee concerns. Don't pressure them into doing something unsafe because you are scared of falling short of the production quota or expect people to get hurt.
