Competitive pay and working for incentive.

Ask for operator input at problem solving.

    Pros

    decent pay, if you are selected to earn bonus. There is a good chance you won't be, and once you are selected not to receive it, you will never earn a cent of incentive ever.

    Cons

    Poor, biased supervision. A word of advice, if you are a college student, do not mention this to any supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standing behind your employee would greatly improve employee morale.

    I have been working at Dexter Axle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent but still average for the work, Benefits package is ok but the insurer used is sub-par.

    Cons

    Don't get sick working for this company, Even with a doctors note you get penalized with points and after 7 points you are fired. The amount of vacation time given even after being there for 6 years is very poor. There is no personal or sick time. Points are extremely easy to accumulate. The turnover is high for that very reason. The rules are absurdly strict and I am sure the uppermost management who wrote these rules could not live by them themselves. I drove 80 miles round trip to go to a doctor because I was sick and still got penalized at work and they refused to take my doctor note. It took me 3 days to recover. I will be looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a bit of compassion for the employees, Don't treat them like dogs! Get into your companies and their branches and find out from them what the problems are and how things can be made better. Sometimes the people actually doing the work and not sitting behind a desk know more than you think they do.
