Q: What is it like working as a Grinder Setup Operator?

Grinder Setup Operator in Woodstock:
Pros: Little interruption from my boss, as it stops me from producing. Except this current winter overtime is an always event.
Cons: One boss seems to ignore the employees, the other boss barely knows how to talk, hey only seems to yell... 1 owner, and 5 co-workers. 2 of them are "supervisors". Growth is sadly impossible.
