    I worked at AW North Carolina

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Money. You will make plenty of money.

    No home life. No life. Too many hours and mandatory overtime at that. Management is promoted with little or no qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and start over.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and a lot of room for advancement if you play your cards right. If you're looking for a job to help you get by, then this is the place for you, but if you are looking for a career i would suggest elsewhere.

    Cons

    There is no advocacy for the employees. The leadership and management get to do and ask whatever they want whenever they want it and if you don't like it, they'll get rid of you or completely stop any chance for moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to consider what the employees need. If you are taking away overtime, consider that some employees need overtime. Have programs for advancement, dont let people get stuck in the same spot for years and years but reward hard work with promotions. Do in house training for skilled labor such as maintenance for promising team members.

    I have been working at AW North Carolina full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits used to be free, company had a clear direction, and cared for the employees. Management on all levels was visible on the manufacturing floor. HR actually would get to know you personally.

    Cons

    There's so much that can be said here. Management doesn't seem to have a clear direction. The company has promoted too many "managers" who have no experience, and allow them to do whatever they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what made the company successful, caring about the employees.

    Pros

    Opportunities are plentiful if you have your own thoughts and are not afraid to do the right thing. Benefits are not terrible, salary is getting better.

    Cons

    Many people in the upper management have recently left leaving some serious holes in American leadership. These holes are being filled by Japanese members while talent is identified and trained to move up.

    Pros

    Insurance Benefits. Now I'm forced to type because there is a 5 word minimum. Sad I can't even come up 5 positive words.

    Cons

    Pay, Hours, work environment. Stand on concrete 12 hours a day 7 days a week...no lies. We couldn't even get matting to stand on. They don't care if you have a life or a family, it's work, work and more work. They paint one picture of this place in the hiring process, but once you get on the floor it's a different story. I was told I was going to be in a QA position, but was put on an assembly line like a human robot. Motto is quality people, quality work. They do not care about quality, they care about the numbers. It's a house of lies. Mandatory vacation must be taken during the summer shut down and used for xmas shut down as well. Doesn't really leave much vacation days left. The insurance benefits were VERY GOOD, but in the end it wasn't worth staying. It's pretty much a sweat shop for adults.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice is mute, management doesn't care about their employees.
