My son's friend,who is 20 works there and he seems to like it. He works P/T. I've heard they recruit a lot of kids from the High School to work there.

I have been at SW for 2 years and it is a great place to work. Everyone around me has worked here for 10, 20, 30 and my boss has been here 42 years. They take care of their employees but do expect a honest days work out of you. I hope I retire here.

I worked there for 23 years and hated everyday of it. worked 9 years on nights the rest on days. they treat you like crap. do what they say or else, find another job. they dont care. private owned. make rules as they go. take your ideas and use them and you will never get a ounce of recognition. After being threatened and just totally fed up. I left on my own,,To hell with southwire!!!

its THEIR COMPANY, not yours.They can do what they want.Do you pay for any of the products shipped in to make wire?DO oyu take risk and invest in the company?Do you have to pay any of the bills?DO oyu have to stay up nights worried about production or if this or that is being done?HELL NO! your just a flunky that gets a few dollars for showing up, so oyu dont deserve to make huge dollars when you invest NOTHING
NOTHING FROM NOTHING LEAVES NOTHING
It only takes 1 hour to replace you at any time.If you fall dead and have to be hauled out, it takes ONE hour to replace you, thats how important you are at ANY company if you just show up to get a paycheck.

I feel the same way about my employee's. They can do as they are told or find another job. I pay them to perform a certain task. I do not pay them to think.

I was told to think when I worked for southwire but after fine tuning some things I was terminated and not any severance or my 5th year of vacation pay Its not my fault my manager took me from something I was great at and moved me elsewhere I didnt kno alot about .... now look I am a nobody again but added to the nobody I got to be a mother for a change instead of a slave for the dollar
