i got a call 2 hours after i filed my application..i had interview the next day and started work the day after that..you start through IES at 7.50 an hour plus .20 if you take 2nd or 3rd shift. you get a .50 cent raise after 80 hours. pay is weekly..no benefits from what i understand until you get on with LCF which takes 6 months I think..jobs are boring for most part as most factory work is. it's a paycheck though and feeds my family so all i care about..

yeah, but now they are also using job shop.
but you can get your hours in more quickly if you become a machine operator, or a ies lead. they have ies leads now.
what if this

i have seen new hires come in off the street and go into lead and mach op position.
it may be who you know.

which could be a form of neeeeeeeepotism.

i have seen a lot of that.
kids and family connected to mngrs and spvrs, get hired into cookie factory faster.

Thats the reason the packers know more about running a line because the leads that come of the street don't know crap, aboutwhats going on.

I really do feel sorry for the mgnrs and spvrs for what they are going through. And for what it's worth, I hope they give you all the option to stay and drop down to a lower level. You should not feel any shame if you have to do that. And keep holding your head just as high as ever.
Because, I know they do not need 4 and 5 spvsrs every night to each line. That's what the line leads are there for. It used to be 1 to each shift for all the lines.
Doing favors for your best bud at the company's expense will catch up with you.

normal people do not pay any attention to the trash on here.
they know there are jealous nuts who sit around and dream up this stuff.

if the mgmt and human resources have a good head on their shoulders, they are not going to pay any attention to this stuff either.

but, there are people in this side of the woods that will judge you based on this topix rag.
they are the ones that are 2 shakes short of a good mix.
not

you do NOT know anything for certain.
your mgmt may be loyal to their lying buddies.
it is a buddy system you know.
you may not have done anything to be fired for. you may not deserve any of the 6hit stuff they start handing out to you.
they may just be doing things to you because their lying back stabbing buddies tell them to.
keep your eyes and ears open and you will know i tell you THE TRUTH.
