Used to be good until the 10 year grow-in
The money seems decent at first, but 10 years is a long time.
(I was hired before then and made top rate at 4 1/2 years)
You will be on "contract" for the first 3 years during which time...
Your benefits are limited (no dental or long/short term disability)
Your semi-annual bonus is 1/2 of what a full-timer makes.
You get 1 week bookable vacation as well as 1 week in mid July and 1 1/2 weeks from Xmas to New Years's.
That is the stuff that is "in print".
What's not in writing...
You are treated like a 2nd class citizen.
Veiled threats to your job security are a regular occurrence.
You can be moved to any shop or line or plant at any time.
You better not get hurt or complain that you hurt, as they will do everything in their power to 'push" you out of there.
You better not have any kind of disagreement with any level of management, no matter how justified, as they will "push" you out.
Until you are full-time you just work there, you're not an employee.
Anything you are promised when first hired can be taken away easily until you are full-time (pension, wage progression, vacation to name a few)
Once you are full-time they can still take away whatever they want, whenever they want.
I only stay because I make 80-90k/year (which took me less than 5 years) and get 7 weeks of vacation (5 of which I get to choose)
If you don't believe me, or if you're OK with what you've read, try it out for a month. You'll at least make a few thousand and get a free pair of work shoes, prescription safety glasses and some clothing.
