Molding Operator (Former Employee) says"They want you to meet 100 percent production , not 95 not 93. 100 percent. Perfect. They have you running messed up machines and it count against your production. They constantly remind you that being hired in doesnt make you invisible and they can replace you at any time. No grace period with attendance , 1 minute late and you get a half of point. Equivalent to being 4 hours late. Upper management complains about everything. No phones, no food, no talking to other coworkers, you stand at your own machines and do your work . No headphones allowed. No sitting down , just slave. You get a 20 min break and 2 ten minute breaks that be over with by the time you walk to the break room . They give you raises every so often but you're on a 8 point system and when you hit 3 - 5 they take every raise back and you're back at base pay. It's hot as heck and the machines will having you shedding skin Start at 12 an hour . Everyone goes through a temp agency and mandatory Saturdays and sundays when they say so . So u can chalk getting a 2nd job.PayEverything else"
