    A good internship that introduced me to the OEM supply without being overwhelmed.

    Very good job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompensation, work environment, freedom, flexibility, and opportunity for advancement

    ConsQuality. I think quality suffers as a result of the freedom aspect. They haven't figured out a bulletproof system to make sure every product meets the same standard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to value employee wellness and morale; this separates Conti from the litany of auto suppliers and attracts grateful minds seeking respite

    Insecure, contracted employee

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood pay, benefits, and safe environments provided due to UNION (UAW) collective bargaining agreement.

    ConsInsecure feeling of worth....Company only kept us due to contractual requirements....We made Continental a significant profit with absolute disregard for our future.

    Best Pay I've Ever Had Worst Job Ever As Well

    Assembler/Material Handler (Current Employee) Morganton, NC

    ProsGreat Pay right at $40,000 gross with a little overtime every week. They also provide tuition reimbursement as well.

    ConsRACISM is rampant at the Morganton, North Carolina plant. The secind biggest problem is cronyism.The management at this plant is out of touch with what actually happens on the production floor, and there is often to many people for to few jobs. Many of the older employees no longer work they merely stand around talking and temporary employees are brought in to pick up the slack. No real opportunity for advancement once jobs are taken they are locked up for 10 or more years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring family members based solely on that merit work ethic should go much further, hire some people that may not have the education yet, and make the stipulation that full pay will not be given until completion of degree.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    No tension about losing the job

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsGood work and lot of diversified projects to work on. No lay off tensions as the management makes sure to have the job in one department or the other.

    ConsCrooked management. Management believes in only a few employees and goes only with their opinion. Also, most of the valuable work is being done overseas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be straight forward to staff and let them know what is going on within the group. Please let the employee know their mistakes in advance, rather than pointing them out at the time of year end review and cut the bonus...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
