Walk in Assembler (Former Employee) says"This place is a den of vipers, back stabbing and shady deeds is common place. You will be treated like garbage and told to shut up and work harder daily if you work 1st shift. Management is self serving and uncaring, Don't expect important issues you may have to get resolved. Most enjoyable part of working here is after you quit you realize you won't have to go back. I'm not angry with this place this is just a word of warning. Cons: To many to name"
Assembly Specialist (Former Employee) says"This place used to be a good place to work. They used to care about their employees. Now the only one who cares about them is (I know for sure) weekend supervisor."

walk in refrigeration assembly (Former Employee) says"expected to perform the work of multiple people , constantly being pushed to the limit is not a healthy or safe work environment, when the head of management tells you "if you don't like it here leave ,life is to short" you work for a company that doesn't respect there employees or there well being , my co-workers are hard working people (some of them) lifting panels of 300 plus pounds with one other person is extremely demanding, the best part of the job is punching out Cons: 2 ten minute breaks for a ten hour shift, half hour lunch"
