    Great place to work! Management does work to help and advance employees but sometimes the union gets in the way of that. Union also tends to allow members to get away with more than they should.


    Can tend to work long hours and will most likely work off shifts when you get started but that is no different than most companies that run 24 hours.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Axle & Manufacturing (Hamtramck, MI) in September 2014.


    Had a few email and phone conversations with the recruiting office and human resources to go over my resume and background. Was then brought onsite for a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. The process from submitting a job application to getting an interview was very quick and efficient. I prepared like a I was going into a four-hour panel interview and in reality had a 15-20 minute discussion with the hiring manager. Overall, I left with a good impression of him and the company culture.

    Interview Questions

    • I would summarize the interviews as very informal and the supervisor was really trying to see if this role would be a great fit for myself and vice versa. No question was difficult at all and it was more of a back-and-forth conversation about how the role was developed and what the expectations were over the initial few months.   Answer Question
