There are many machines that need to be fixed that are constantly leaking oil. They are care more on how many parts are pushed out rather than the safety conditions of the work environment.
Support from management
They prefer minimal interaction.
Freedom to work independently
The shift managers come by to see how things are going ever couple of hours.
They did not give me any warning when letting me go. The called me an hour before my shift started. I lost my apartment because i could pay rent since i could find another job right away
Men are offered Higher positions and are not worked so hard.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Continuously dismissed a younger female coworkers tardiness but penalized an older female coworker when tardy.
They have training in house to do other jobs that they have.
Overall compensation for your work
Office / Work Environment
There were times that i was going to pass out from the heat.
There are no recyling bins. every night you have to change the the floor dry regardless if it is clean or not.
Most Saturdays you are needed to work.
I loved the line that i worked on.
I knew that they were going to get rid of me the day before they let me go.
This is not a place where non-disabled people should be, let alone disabled people
They do not always have safety slip mats and they make you use machines that are not working properly. One of the machines have a "stopper" that doesn't always move which will cause the machine to shut on your hands...crushing them.
It was very labor intensive. Most of the time you have to take breaks in shifts. My biggest complaint was that even in the hospital giving birth my mother got "points" for missing work.
Inclusive / Diverse
Nothing is allowed to be changed or bettered.
Suggestions for improvement
- Fix the machines. Make sure that every station had some sort of cooling or heating device for people with temperature sensitivities. Make sure that every station has the proper equipment.
What I like about the company
I made a few friends and got to work with my mom and see her everyday. I loved working on my line. I was very good at it. I worked very hard to make more good quality parts than the previous shift. Most days I was able to surpass the numbers that were asked for. Working this job helped me lose weight and gain confidence in myself that I didn't have before. It was a good experience for my first job living on my own.
What I dislike about the company
I disapprove of the safety. I was hurt many times do to unsafe work environment. As part of my job I had to carry heavy wooden pallets. Now most of the time they were broken and falling apart. So one night I was carrying a pallet and it had broken and fallen backwards on top of my head. I ended up in the hospital with a concussion that night. Another time I found out that my machine was leaking oil everywhere. I asked the shift manager for a safety mat so I didn't fall and he told to start working anyway. Five minutes into working and I slip in the oil got my finger caught in the sensor on the machine, hit my hip and head on the forklift and the concrete floor. I immediately told the safety adviser and got pulled into the office to recount everything. I signed a slip stating that i agreed to go back through the safety class and went back to my line. When I got there I told my coworker that I have to start looking for a new job and fast. The next day at 1 pm, which was one hour before my shift started, they called to tell me that they no longer needed me. That put me out of house and home because it was the first week of the month and I had just paid half of my rent leaving me with literally nothing.Because of there negligence with the safety, cost me my job, home and friends. I spiraled into a depression that I still have trouble with. I lost my will to do daily tasks.
