Pros: The identifix program helps find solutions to common problems.
Certain Co workers are great teammates. Knowledge is shared from older technicians .
Cons: Very hard to get a raise even though they push productivity consistently. They do not want to pay double minimum wage for providing your own tools for work yet they do not provide all the tools needed. Managers deliberately change the time punches to avoid meal times after fifth hour and often change the overtime actually worked to lower cost and budget on their end . Alot of over time has been lost due to these altered punches which can only be done by managers.
