    I worked at NTN Bearing full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, mostly nice people.

    Cons

    Way too internally and appearance focused. More concerned with weekly reports to sr. mgt. (which are forwarded to Japan), than customers. Category (bearings) is a commodity, and despite what they say, it all comes down to price. Theirs is too high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your customers.

    Pros

    Close to home, ok pay, good insurance and vacation time. A place that does seem to stick around.

    Cons

    Many, typical non union butt kissing to get anywhere type of job, Japanese owned. Filthy place unless you are in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit hiring inept, uneducated foreign idiots for management and supervision. After my time there should have been no reason for letting me go.

    I have been working at NTN Bearing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As an operator, you have plenty of opportunities for overtime. 12 days on, 2 days off. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management mentality that proves that they believe that they are still in Japan and not the US. Upper management, both Japanese and American, do not consider input from employees even they have a suggestion program. Currently experiencing an 60-80% turn over rate for hourly employees, and a 30-40% turn over rate of salary employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees with decision making responsibilities to make improvements that have been suggested and proven in other environments. Use your employee's previous experiences and award them for their efforts instead of singling out and harassing them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
