Gates is just like all the other factories who move into this area- they are here because they can get cheaper labor here, and don't have to worry about unions. Soon after they get their employees trained, they will go to 12 hour shifts so they can run the plant 24 hours without paying any overtime. You will be paid every 2 weeks, and work 3 12 hour shifts one week, and 4 shifts the next week. these will be split up so you will work every other weekend,both days. They had strict no smoking policy in Glade-if you were caught, you're fired. Employees were not allowed outside the building at lunch or breaks. Just last week, two girls from Saltville were fired because they played music too loud in the parking lot. They are very demanding, and treat employees like they own them. Employees of this company badly need union representation.Just ask some of the employees who are being bussed over from Glade, to train others to take their jobs. You would be wasting your time to take a job in the plant moved from Glade- it won't be in jefferson long. Just look at the condition of the building. They will soon move it out West. There's a group out of Denver running the plant now, aqnd they are really a bunch of assholes.
