I worked at SHOWA CorporationDoesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEODoesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
I was looking for the best entry level position I could find in the area and Shows us where I was pointed. Temp to hire position and I got hired in 4 months. Set pay raise schedule. Every 6 months until you reach 2.5 years. Good pay. Ability to advance to technician or section head if you can pass the test and interview. Some really good people there.
Managers were idiots. Shift vs. shift bickering throughout the whole plant. Cut pay by 6% and never gave it back. Stop cost of living annual increases. Stopped perfect attendance bonuses. Laid off 30% of employees in 2012. Temps got screwed on hiring. Some worked there for almost 3 years and never got hired.
Advice to Management
Work on shift to shift cohesion. If all shifts are on the same page then things will run more smoothly. Pay more attention to who actually does the job correctly and put less stock into seniority. Just because someone has been there for 10+ years doesn't mean they know or do things better than the guy/gal who's been there for 2.
