                        Pros

                        easiest job you will ever have for the wage, especially for a factory job. on site company store offers discounted products, on site uniforms so you dont have to take them home and wash them yourself, paid vacation, lots of overtime, shift preference based off employe seniority

                        Cons

                        alot of people dont realize how easy they have it so you do work with ALOT of lazy people, youd be shocked at what some people complain about. some supervisors dont leave their problems at the door so their mood will reflect on how they treat you, certain shifts have a very "high school drama" vibe but honestly its entertaining

                      Was told by an company I was interviewing with I would hear back from them the first week of December. The last time we spoke was before Thanksgiving, as I'm trying to respect their decision-making process. Should I reach out again now that we're closer to the date?

                      When negotiating salary over the phone, can you mention that you know what the salary is for the position you're applying for? E.g. I know people at the company I'm interviewing for in the exact level that I would be in who are making about 15k more than what I am expecting to be offered. Can I say, "I know Managers at this firm make xyz so I would like to be close to that number"
