Folks are having trouble passing a drug test and some don't like to come to work at 6AM or on Mondays. As they say in Japan, rocks of ruck!!! If you are lucky, life will go on!!!
This morning, your comment prompted me to poke around a little more in regards to this. I ended up reading comments from current/former workers on sites like glassdoor that state that Jayco's drug testing has some issues as well because at least a few reviews say they have drug addicts and alcoholics currently working on the lines as well.
If true (and I state that knowing that you can't believe everything you read on the interwebs), that might also explain the perceived dropoff in Jayco quality control as well as blatant mistakes such as things wired/connected wrong or not at all for starters.
So sounds like it might just be a "perfect storm" going on down there in Indiana and who knows what the outcomes will be. I am trying to hold on to any optimism I have left that we will get ours before the first of the year.
