I have been working at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)
For a global corporation, this is a very family oriented company. The senior management in the corporate office seem to be very aware of the everyday work details of the individual plants. Monthly walk throughs of the plants facilitate the intimacy from the corporate offices. Corporate support to the plant is easily obtained.
Training has become non existent. Lines separating departmental duties are blurry at best. Departments are not encouraged to cooperate amongst each other.
Advice to Management
Provide clearer directives to salaried associates. Encourage associates to utilize training, and make it easier to access training if it is available.

Overall, I left with a good impression of him and the company culture.

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
