    I worked at AW North Carolina (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best part of the company is the money.

    Cons

    Long hours keep you away from home and family. When bad weather hits you still have to be at work. No consideration for the people that have to drive more than an hour each way.

    I worked at AW North Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Automotive transmission plant is $1B business. Great if you want Tier One experience but entry pay is total pay. No bonuses

    Cons

    Too many to specify. Japanese Management over run by new high level American management hired by Japanese President of plant. Plant manager gone, 30% turnover in management. Duck and hide.

    Advice to Management

    Let Japanese management ranks help fix problems caused by new American management inexperience. Huge talent drain caused by management firing key personnel to bring in their team

    I worked at AW North Carolina full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent money for minimum education, but that's only because of the 20 hours overtime. Easy to move up if you can handle the responsibilities.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime every week, long hours, you don't find out until Thursday if you are working on the weekend and more than likely you will be working.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about employees and try to understand that some of us have a life and family, instead of forcing to work with no rest and when there's a big snow storm.

    Pros

    I made lots of money working for AWNC and I enjoyed every aspect of the job.

    Cons

    Required to work mandatory overtime often.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be beneficial for management to recognize and sometimes award their team members accomplishments. This lets a employee know where they stand and makes them want to strive harder.

    Always show appreciation to your lower level management.

    Pros

    the job is growing more and more and hiring people every single day.

    Cons

    the benefits are good and affordable you get plenty of vacation and personal time off and you can even came in during shut down for more time off you work everyday never really off to spend with love ones.

    Advice to Management

    the job is okay but when it comes down to duplicate's your team member whatever you do don't become close to know one you will end up like the other leaders that use to work there.
