    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.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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
