Worse every year

Production (Current Employee)
Salem, IN

I have been working at GKN Sinter Metals full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay is good. Close to home and in an area that is up and coming.

ConsCompany expects you to work 7 days a week with total disregard to family or life obligations. This company is continually looking for ways to take from employees without ever giving anything beyond our regular earnings. Very poor managment at lower levels, i.e. leaders, supervisors,production managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to and respect employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

GKN review

Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at GKN Sinter Metals full-time for more than 5 years

Prosmedium sized company, works with employees on training and cont education. Willing to spend money for improvements and new products. Stable during recessions and worked hard to keep employees busy.

ConsLocal managers vary biased who is hired. Most upper management will stab you in the back and do whatever it takes to make themselves look good. Tend to fire people with alot of years experience for they can hire a younger kid with less vacation and less money.

Advice to Senior ManagementDont be so corrrupt.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

OK Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at GKN Sinter Metals

ProsGood benefits, stability, great concepts / ideas.

Consno accountability, employees can slack off with no consequences. it is a 'good ol' boys' club at most of our locations, where it is about who you know, not how well you do your job.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate standarized procedures and policies across all locations. more effective communications (timley) and better shop floor training for employees.
