Pros

No better jobs available in this economy, decent wages for maintenace and team leaders..Union offers a tiny bit of protection from favortism.

Cons

Too Many management pets, and pet projects wasting money on inappropriate things like 5-S and Kaizon junk, but won't spend enough to properly get a quality product to the customer. HR has a personal vendetta against virtually all former Delphi people that were bought as part of the package when buying the plant.. Worst part of that issue is that it;s the former Delphi Salaried that hold the grudge, not the Tenneco management team from above. With One exception the upper Management (not from this plant) Seem to be honest including the CEO..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of excess padded management levels at the plant, use the money to hire enough Maintenance people to fix the equipment properly.. YOUR own MISSION statement states CUSTOMER is first and SHAREHOLDERS..not wasting company funds on personal vendettas on people just because we belong to a Union. EFFICIENCY would be 90% instead of 65% if you had properly trained Skilled tades doing the jobs instead of operators and supervisors who aren't qualified to flip burgers at McDonalds, much less fix complicated equipment.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and that is about it

    Cons

    Promotions are limited - always a dangling carrot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the practice of offering raises and counter-offers when someone resigns. Cherish your employees while you still have them, not when they walk out the door.

    Loved the employees, Management has a terrible lack of communication and no real empathy.

    Pros

    Good pay for the location. Great medical and dental benefits. Once hired on great attendance policy. HR does back their open door policy.

    Cons

    Favoritism among family members seems to be awful high. Discipline is not handed out fairly. Communication between management and workers is extremely lacking (especially on the off shifts). Too many in management trying to make all the rules with no concept how the processes actually work.

    Disapproves of CEO
