This job will bore you to death, very monotonous work. Hard manual labor daily. Very strict routine to follow daily.

Pros

Decent Pay. 11/hour starting out with staffing company. 12.65 after 3 months.

Set hours.

Job security is good. Not much else.

Cons

Very boring, monotonous work. Do the same thing over and over and over all day.

Can be hard manual labor for those not used to that.

Management is runs around like chickens with their head cut off. More concerned about sucking up to the manager above them than doing a good job.

You are just a cog in the machine.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the points system for sick days. It makes you seem like you don't value your employees as human beings. I realize your excuse is "this is how the industry does it". How many great companies do things because that is how the industry does it?

    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 Management

    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.
