The 12 hour shift is not too difficult and over a 2 week period you have 7 days off, of which overtime is often available. The work is not too difficult but can be tedious. Every other weekend you are scheduled to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Pros
The pay is good and overtime is available if you want it but not mandatory
Cons
The plant is filthy and loud

Previous employee. worked in forming area. Production manager attitude and knowledge poor. Let certain people sleep on job and get away with basically not working but getting paid overtime. Don't speak up or you will have a target on your back even though its a Union shop.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Poor management and good ole boy way of doing things

This is the worst place i have ever worked. There are no advancement opportunities here unless you are extremely liked by management. If you are disliked for any possible reason you will be harassed and constantly written up. Schedule is horrible only on a different shift every week only 36 hours off between 3rd shift and 1st and only 2 weekends off per year. Definitely do not come here if your goal is to advance it does not matter how qualified you are to advance if management does not like you someone else unqualified for the job will be promoted out of spite.
Pros
good insurance, decent pay
Cons
bad management, no advancement opportunities, to many clicks and politics.

Its the only place I've ever work that when you do something good you are hated because the boss feels threatened. But this place does pay well and has good benefits and wouldn't recommend anyone pass the opportunity. As bad as the schedule and salary are its worth the headache.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
rotating shifts and politics in the work place.

If you get a job on the floor and get in the union you have it made. You can get way with anything when you get in the union. Great pay for hourly employees.

Political and cut throat. No real sense about trying to make a product efficiently. plant Manager turnover created a constant sense of tension and blame as things rarely ran as they should. The root cause of problems were not addressed, only finger pointing.
Pros
Pay was ok (if you actually only worked 50 hours/week.
Cons
Too many to list

The jobs here are repetitive. But the pay and benefits are great. I worked and moved up in this company fast. Great job. The swing shift is tough but when you are making 50-80,000 a year you feel like you are valued.

Owens is a fast paced job with a lot of walking. Once you get the job down it get's better. There is several different machines that is running and you have to keep them going.

The pay is good the work is easy but rotating shifts are the downside and if you're low on seniority be prepared for mandatory doubles with little to no advanced notice
Pros
Money
Cons
Rotating shifts

Great Pay for the jobs there, but the jobs are on a assembly line and are simple and very boring. Having 12 hour shifts and no job rotation make each day long.

Fora 18 anos entre contratos e efetivação, mas desde o inicio, todos colaboradores são tratados igualmente, praticamente tudo que consegui na minha vida foi através dessa empresa que classifico como excelente em todos os aspéctos

Corporate makes no serious effort to address the persistent culture of harassment. The management and leadership is overwhelmingly male. Diversity and inclusion efforts are not a priority. Support for women is lacking
