    I want to work for Taylor guitars

    I just tried calling them for support, and got this recording:



    "We will be closed for a 2 WEEK BREAK starting December 24th..."



    IDK, maybe the flip side is you work the other 350 days of the year

    I toured the place. The employee turnover is pretty low. I sure wouldn't want to work in a wood shop breathing in dust and finish all day

    Teachers should get paid more, after all, they are the curators for the next generation. It should be harder to be a teacher too.



    First year high school teachers here start at 55,000 a year, which is by no means poor. It goes up about 3,000 a year.

    I wouldn't say I'm a pauper, though I'm certainly not wealthy. Still, it makes enough for me to get by, and I even get to buy a guitar every now and then.

    Problem is, you live like a pauper all year long. No money to be made in teaching.

    Wait, aren't all guitar companies like this?





    Sorry.

    I completely understand the mfg side of it. I was surprised that customer service / corp offices shut down too

    Very common in any assembly line- it's far easier to have everyone take off at the same time, and you can do mantenance/upgrades on your equipment. Ex-brother in law worked for Ford on the pickup line and he always had his vacation scheduled a year in advance, both summer and winter.

    Exactly. I'd be leery of a manufacturer that did not have such scheduled shutdowns. That being said, I've taken similar time off every year of my professional life ...

    We're off from Dec 21st until Jan 2nd. The company I work for does this every year at this time.

    Not uncommon in manufacturing. The manufacturing side of the company I work for has been shut down since 12/21 and won't open up until 1/7. A lot of the companies we supply are also down. Companies do it for a range of reasons, from the simple slowdown of the distibution network to closing the doors to do once-per-year maintenance that you just can't do while the plant is running.
