    Pros

    .50 cent shift differential, ETO, Attendance bonuses

    Cons

    Miscommunication and powertrips can make it a headache

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to line leads and supervisors. They do what they want and even when they get reported nothing gets done about it.

    Pros

    Close to home, only 10 minute drive

    Cons

    If you aren't a temporary worker working on assembling parts, you might as well just walk around and bang your head against a wall. The training that they do is worthless! The initial orientation is ok, but when you get out with a supervisor, forget it! And when you do as for help, they just look at you like you are stupid and treat you the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that care about their employees

    I have been working at Cardington Yutaka Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you want to learn more about six-axis robots and welding with them, there is opportunity to learn.

    Insurance is decent if you can pay for it.

    Cons

    If you don't like to be a part of the boys club, you'll find yourself feeling alienated.

    No leadership in their engineering groups, no direction, no projects given, expected to work 6 to 7 days per week. Don't be two minutes late because you'll lose your earned time off.

    Not a place for a degree holding professional, period. I left that hell hole at the earliest opportunity. I would strongly urge anyone looking for an engineering position to stay away. I actually work for a supplier that is hands down 500 percent a better place to work.

    It's a joke of a place to work, hence Honda taking over in June.

    Former Employee - Maintenance Technician in Cardington, OH

    I worked at Cardington Yutaka Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Wages were decent. I did learn more about some of the machinery, especially the robotic welders. Benefits were about the same as any other manufacturing company.

    Cons

    I was a maintenance technician. I came from another manufacturing facility where I was a technician and had more training. The only reason that I left the other job is the fact that this one was closer to home. There is absolutely no training at this company. You walk around with a team lead for about 2 days then you are thrown to the wolves and expected to fix everything and if you ask for help you don't get it. I was dismissed after being told that I was doing a good job by one manager and then the other manager said I wasn't. I just didn't fit into his "clique." Also, this place is very unsafe, no lock out tag out is ever used, and they had 3 bomb threats in the 2 months that I was there. After the last bomb threat, we were told that we would be the ones searching for the bombs if there was another one. They also work their people 7 days a week for 35-45 days at a time, sometimes longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is key. Take the time to train people, even if they have some experience. Your machines are a little different than some other places. Don't assume that everyone knows everything. Take time to treat your employees like people who matter, not dogs picked up off the street.
