    Lots of changes and no unified message about the plant.

    Communication is key, especially when change is every day.

    Pros

    People, benefits, perks such such as company car and fuel card, amazing managment team. You truly manage your own business. You have the opportunity to directly manage 10-15 people, and for young people like me, a position like this can take years to attain in other organizations. This is Leadership School!

    Cons

    Difficult hours; the business literally runs 24/7.
