Do they always work 12 hrs 7 days a week or is it only a temp. thing till things get caught up? Thinking about applying there and thought they were 8 hr shifts. How often would you get a day off and is that legal? I am willing to work hard and am drug free but would like a day off to do things too.

Most of the plant working 7x12s right now. Dont get any hopes of a day off. Permanent people been there years with lots of vacation cant get a day off.

that may be a reason that people dont stay there. Is it like that all year or will it slow down so some will get days off?

LOL,you will never get a day off,when it slows down,you'll be let go!You will be treated like a slave or worse and subjected to the dumbest,worst management ever!You will be made send sub-quality parts out to make the truck,then blamed for it later.You will have to give up everything you love to go to work 84 hours a week,every week until you get tired of it or point out.If you need the money,go work there as long as you can put up with it,if you make it thirty days without missing or being late twice,you get five days you can miss without pointing out.This place sucks,Kirby makes sure it does,what a douche!!!!!!!!!!

I worked there for 10 months 7 days a week 12 hours a day. I quit because i never got to see my family. Kirby stands behind you and makes you feel so uncomfortable. Every thing is done completly different when its time for the lady from the GM plant to come visit. It would be funny if she went in there unannounced... lol Everybody in managment would be fired...

Im sure they are. They cant keep anybody cause they wont let anybody have a day off. The money is good but not good enough to never get to see your family or even have time to spend the money.

Sucks the life out if you. If they could get somebody besides pill heads and thieves to work, maybe everyone else could get some time off.

Someone who worked there from about June to October. He pretty much worked 7 x12 the whole time he was there. He got a 20 minute lunch break and 2 10 minute breaks. The money was good but it about killed him. He said it was very hot in the building too.
