Employees work 12-hour shifts for shorter workweeks, alternating between four-day and three-day weeks. “Essentially, our staff works half the year,” HR director Sue Vondra said. They are paid overtime on the fourth day.

“We provide extensive on-the-job training, so team members can start with no experience at all and rapidly progress, as we prefer to promote from within,” Vondra said.

CEO Robert Sires said the wages and benefits are to “attract the best staff and keep them around for the long term.”

AEM operates 24/7/365.
