Last thing I want is my truck made more than 3 weeks in to a forced OT, no days off marathon production schedule.
i wouldn't stress too much on it....

machines do alot of the critical stuff on these trucks

When I was working manufacturing my team loved working nonstop Sat-Sun and as much OT as we would give them. Many based there living styles on this OT. They only times they tried to do shady work was when I cut OT… production should be jumping soon!

Same in construction. My guys live for overtime. 60+ hours a week or they’re pissed.

Anyone bitching about this schedule has obviously never worked a turnaround... Don't get me wrong, I don't miss them, but in the conditions these people work, and the lack of difficulty to the job.... if they even hinted at complaining about it I'd show them the door and bring in someone that wants to work.

But honestly here's hoping they're looking forward to it and enjoy it and the cash it brings in for them!

I've worked in both automotive manufacturing and construction. There is zero association between loving the OT and the money and the quality of the work going out the door. I spent plenty of hours in a chrysler transmission plant reinspecting the parts we had sent them due to the fact that certain department shift leaders were more concerned with hitting the numbers sent out the door than meeting the requirements for tolerances.

I’m assuming they already had allocation and just had to make a couple changes to complete my order

Is there anyone left who wants to work? I thought that was a thing of the past.

Do you work there or know someone that you have this info?
I know people that work in different areas of the company that lets me in on info.
And are they even going to have the parts to sustain that level of progress.
They won't. The point is they keep having a lot of people not showing up for work and this is how they get them all to show up. If they are out of parts, just like a couple days ago, they'll just get sent home early.

I appreciate all the guys hard work up there but I don’t want my truck rushed for production sake. I definitely enjoy quality over quantity.
That’s for sure
