    Pros

    Get vacation time when you start, benefits are great, start paying into a 401K for you when you start working for them. Willing to work with you if you need time off. Every other week you get a 3 day weekend.

    Cons

    12 hr shifts, on your feet all the time, normally doesn't close due to weather, some of the people are hard to work with.

    Pros

    Good place to work. They take care of employees. You will be expected to put out real effort, but will be taken care of.

    Cons

    Some weekend work is expected, but they usually bring in breakfast or lunch.

    Advice to Management

    I rarely saw senior management, they pretty much kept to themselves.

    Pros

    There are no pros to this place. Do not go to the Phoenix plant. Management sucks. No organization.

    Cons

    If you like working every Saturday and being under appreciated with getting crapped on from managers everyday. Then go apply. They have benefits but truthfully it's not worth it. The Phoenix plant has nothing positive. It's actually dangerous. People get physically hurt on a daily or weekly basis. Too much machinery in the plant and the management and upper management does not care about people getting hurt. All they care about is the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of your phoenix managers, hr and upper management and start over. They are completely useless.
