    Constant stress even if company is performing well. Poor corporate culture of "success" at all costs. No long term thinking is acceptable.

    I have been working at Nissan North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nissan is one of the highest paying industrial jobs in the area. It's a stable position that offers decent benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Like all factory jobs, it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. There's not much room for moving up. There's a distinct pay and treatment difference between Nissan Employees and Yates (the onsite contractor) employees even though they do the exact same jobs.

    Advice to Management

    For the management who were once lower level workers, remember where you came from. Don't ask your employees to do things you know are against safety standards.

    Let by gone's be by gone's . Would have loved to come back, but black balled. Not fair. Had a good job interview with J A King went well, when was over ask me if I knew anyone else looking told a person he got hired. Need I say more.
