I have been working at Subaru of Indiana Automotive full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay and benefits, a rec center and health clinic available to associates, spouse, and children

Cons

back breaking body aching work...you will definitely earn every penny you make depending on what area you end up in

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Utilize employees based on their talents. Individuals are sometimes put in areas that hinder them from being utilized to their best ability. Give hourly associates more opportunities for training to be qualified for promotions instead of turning them down based on them lacking those qualifications. If they express and interest and the company expresses a need..why wouldn't training be available?

    I have been working at Subaru of Indiana Automotive full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing from the company is free health benefits (besides paying the deductible) once you managed to become a full time employee (takes up to 3 years to get hired full time, 2 minimum). Also bonuses are given twice a year, however the full time employees get around 10x more of a bonus than the temporaries do even though the amount of work is the same. Stealing. employees

    Cons

    Most people don't last 2 years so the health benefits don't really out weigh the hard work.
    Team Leaders/Group Leaders are horrible and don't care as long as they get their bonuses.
    Company says they are equal opportunity and not racist, which is true in the fact that they deliberately hire blacks and women to work the lines just to avoid lawsuits (the blacks and women could be the worst workers but still keep their job just so the company is leveled out on the race part). The sad part is these workers get away with everything because they know they won't be fired due to their race alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are worthless. Let's not mention the fact that every tool and machine in the plant is wired or wireless hooked up to a computer network which the team leader/group leader/AR person in charge can turn off or screw your machines up any time they want. Therefore, if one of them don't personally like you, they will manipulate your tools/machine to make it look like you can't do your job so they can write you up and get you fired. What has this world come to??
