  1. Just another American based company that takes jobs away from American workers for a better bottom line.

    Pros

    The facility I worked at was a very friendly environment filled with highly skilled and helpful coworkers. Hours were reasonable with occasional over time.

    Cons

    The facility I worked for was closed, all production lines were moved to Juarez, Mexico to save money and raise profits for share holders. Numerous awards in excellence and a highly skilled core of employees was not enough to stop them from closing down this factory. No raise in 3 years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your skilled employee's more than your share holders.

    Pros

    Production Planning role is blended - includes customer service, production planning and vendor schedules. Most roles are not micro-managed. Trusted to make decisions and implement ideas for improvement. Good people / team members. Lots of recent and on-going changes to make improvements in management of business.

    Cons

    Morale needs to be improved - majority of the employees seem unhappy including most of the management team. Personnel issues with union employees can take away from time/energy management needs to manage and run the business.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make changes to streamline and focus the Automotive division. Need to make more strides with: quality, safety and inventory control/management.

    Pros

    Many long tenured employees have a good understanding of the business, opportunity for working with people in intenational locations, new management team is still coming together but has aggressive plans for the future, competitive compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Typical work environment for today, reduced resource pool and long work hours, communication from management is sporadic and too high level

    Advice to Management

    I am optomistic about the future of the company but increased communication is sorely needed in order to boost morale

    Pros

    Fair training. Great people, including upper management and Production staff. Within my position I worked with everyone from Receiving, Shipping, Quality, Accounting, Program Management, and Scheduling.

    Cons

    Little space for upward movement. I was a Temp. for almost two years, which I feel is way to long.

    Advice to Management

    Management seen more. Long term employees on the production should be paid more. They carry a huge amount of worth in there heads. Which leaves the Company when they do.

    Pros

    It's a job and checks clear.

    Cons

    No job security, unstable, volatile, no business growth strategy in the face of stiff competition. Quarterly staff layoffs used as means of managing business.

    Advice to Management

    Change managers/supervisors who have milked enough this company and who act based on personal interest only.

    Pros

    Only good if you are looking to rack up experience.

    Cons

    HR is not for the people.
    Employees are treated very bad, no respect.
    Company is unprofessional.
    Director of Operation only care about $$$ and does not create a positive work environment.
    Management needs a lot of work.
    They hire mainly inexperienced people and pay low. Don't expect promotion even if you qualify and work hard. There is no such thing as growth in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat people fairly and with respect. You guys are not doing the right thing that's why the company is going down. Please don't just think about yourself. People work hard so do show appreciation and acknowledge them for their hard work and not stomp on them.Remember, its the worker that makes the company.
