    I worked at Southwire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Minimum supervision, benefits, Strong company, and great atmosphere. I felt that Southwire did care for its employees. Employee assistance with college and on going education was a great. The invest in their employees.

    Cons

    Takes too long to get a promotion. At other times you can feel like you are either part of the club or you are not. Those in the club will be taken care of. Those not will not have opportunities for advancement afforded to them.

    Pros

    Decent starting salary...that's all I've got.

    Cons

    Management needs to understand the needs of their employers. If they aren't happy, they take it out on the employees. No flexibility. Learning was limited to the men only.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire women if you don't plan on allowing them to grow within the company! Also, understand that people have lives outside of work and if their lives don't conform to the "Southwire way of life" don't condemn them.

    Pros

    the best about this job is that it offers good pay and benefits from anybody that works on the floor, to the highest paid employee

    Cons

    i think that the worst about the job are the long hours when you work on the floor, mostly mandatory overtime.
