    Pros

    I started in 1987 as a machine operator. In 1992 I was tested and selected to do apprenticeship.
    Now hold a skilled trades journeyman card. Good hourly wage at the time.

    Cons

    Plant is dirty and not climate controlled, used to produce asbestos products up until 1988. UAW and Abex Friction Products could not come to agree on a contract resulting in a nasty strike in 1996.FM declared Chapter11. Plant went downhill ever since then and closed in 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Sending jobs overseas to China and over the border to Mexico was not good for quality of the products. They had a hard time reproducing the method of production.

    Pros

    They worked with my ever changing school schedule. Every 4 months i had a somewhat different schedule. The ability to be flexible.

    Cons

    Hard to switch departments. When learning a new department getting signed off takes forever. The training is spotty, depending on who you have and what department.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to learn the new machines with your charges.

  7. Federal-Mogul is growing in the middle of Skokie - this is something you don't hear too often! Growth comes at a price.

    Pros

    Not too many manufacturing facilities in this area are growing. The potential is there - new products, new processes and new potential. For a company with facilities all over the world, it's impressive that Skokie is still around!

    Cons

    The heart is not beating - this is a company that has lost a lot of what made working there such a privilege. People are no longer as important as they were. What used to be a team environment ("We're a team first.") has slowly turned into a cold by-the-numbers facility.

    Advice to Management

    People chose their spouses for their strengths and divorce them for their weaknesses. A strong company finds their employees strengths and builds on them. It works. That's why FM Skokie survived. This is changing. Weaknesses are easy to find and it's easy to remove people. But the next batch has their own weakness!

    Pros

    Federal Mogul still has a core of proud brands and remains an important player in the automotive parts industry. Manufacturing and product design remain strong.

    Cons

    Much of the core competency of this organization lies with the people and their expertise. This is largely unappreciated and rapidly being discarded by short-sighted management. Extremely bleak work environment with low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually you will realize, probably too late, that the strength of this company is in the people and the culture around the automotive industry. Unfortunately most of those people will be long gone by then.
