    Former Employee - Assembler in Horicon, WI

    I worked at John Deere full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was the only pro for this job.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life balance. Almost always on overtime. No benefits. Union doesn't do anything for suplemental employees. Union dues every month. No room for advancement to other positions. If you want to move to another department a core employee gets first dibs. Only get two days of PTO. Point system(once you accumulate five points you get terminated. takes a year for those to reset)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make everyone full time employees and get rid of suplementals.

    I have been working at John Deere as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, brand name, reasonable pay

    Cons

    A company where ageism is an unspoken policy
    Gray hair means you will most likely be working an off shift
    Organization is hopelessly over staffed in the salaried ranks people literally sit and do nothing for hours a day
    Only hiring 25 to 35 year olds in full time positions
    Look at the positive reviews, they're all interns, co-ops or new employees who know nothing
    They treat long time employees with distain and relegate them to off shifts to try to force early retirement
    Management is not enforcing policies and the UAW basically runs the operations.
    Contract employees are hired as "warm bodies" to staff the off shift positions that none of the young know nothing employees want

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pray your company never has any real competition, for if it ever does you're doomed
