    I have been working at Schaeffler Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company keeps getting more business so there is plenty of work

    Cons

    There is a major disconnect between "Corporate" and "Plant". Corporate employees typically spend more time trying to avoid doing something and socializing while the manufacturing employees are worked to the bone...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less people in the ivory towers and more help to the plants...

    Pros

    Great coworkers. People who care about doing a good job work here. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    The plant management and communication are still uncertain. Plant runs 7 days a week and management consistently promises employees they will be off of 7 day work weeks while taking on more customers than current or future capacity seems to be able to handle. No clear step by step plan of action has been communicated to lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer direction about the current challenges facing the company and future workload.

    Pros

    Good co workers
    A.C building

    Cons

    micro management
    Upper management is so bad, the CEO needs to do supersize visits
    9.65 starting wage for making a part that will go inside corvette
    the term "throne in with the wolves" is sooo true
    NO training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the wages to at least 13.50 because you have the capital to do so and we arent making cheese burgers, we are making parts for cars. listen to your workers because without them you would most likely be unemployed.

    I worked at Schaeffler Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Made many good friends. Learned how to handle a negative and malicious environment. Great Corporate Leaders.

    Cons

    There is an extremely high turn over rate with salary employee. The environment is very political. Many people have stated that they fear contacting corporate. They fear corporate will get their number if they call them Anonymously. Some leader do retaliate that makes employees uncomfortable. There are some women discrimination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigation in the plant needs to be performed to explain the high turn over rate with Salary employees. Corporate needs to interview each employee or somehow create a way where an employee can contact corporate without making them feel uncomfortable or feel secure that they will be anonymous.

    Pros

    very clean facilities, good A.C., friendly co-workers

    Cons

    There is no training,No trainers, very little cross training.Moral is always low. They talk about being a world class manufacturer,but dont dew anything about educating there workforce. Over work there employees 7 days a week every week.They are headed for failure because the fail to realize there employees are there biggest asset,and fail to include them in the business. Its a shame. Thank god for technology because without it they would have already sunk. Its run like a good old boys club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop letting greed and bean counters run your business, invest in your employees. Its time to walk the walk and talk the talk. Worst place i ever worked
