    Pros

    Would be that you either work days or nights and you meet some great people along the way, most of the team leads are great at showing you the ropes. Also the pay is good bi-weekly, and benefits are great as well

    Cons

    Would be you suppose to get off at 3:15 but sometimes in up working til 5:00, sometimes you have to work six days a week, you got some of the employer that want to be boss as we call them know it all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that come in everyday and do that job and stop acting like you know more because you're in an office sit down position and not on the floor.

    Pros

    Not a difficult place to work. Cost analysis is easy.Just follow what Japanese members telly ou to do.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Management does not desire any changes. Only way to advance is be a "yes" person, no leaders are desired in this company (only managers who do what they are told).

    Pros

    None. Most jobs are dead end jobs.

    Cons

    Management, no career path. Similar to an Enron company, a shell company to send money to Japan.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the proper employees and not only because of parent company direction.

    Pros

    Show up, do your work, and you will always have a job. Co-workers, (below upper management level) are for the most part good to work with. Company stresses that employees respect and embrace cultural differences and backs this up by hiring people with a wide variety of cultures and beliefs. Office equipment and environment is modern and up to date.

    Cons

    Artificial customer deadlines, poor inter-department trust and communication, and high turnover rate make this a difficult place to work. HR will tout flexible hours, but in reality you are asked to take an hour for lunch, and almost no one leaves before 5:00.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in management that is not temporary from Japan, and is willing to make tough decisions and changes. Restructure to minimize inter-department conflict and encourage cooperation. Shift focus from "procedure" to "results."

    Pros

    I made good money for just having my high school diploma. fifty thousand a year because of my crazy overtime. The benefits are some of the best out there 100% for dental, vision, medical, and 400 dollars for massage (the legit kind, no happy ending) ;) Safe clean environment reliable hours and pay. Quarterly bonus between 100 and 300 dollars.

    Cons

    Too much physical demand on the employees body, money could have been much better 20.30 dollars an hour top rate for that kind of stress was not enough.

    45 cent raise in the last 6 years is a kick in the nuts!. work quarters are too long! 2 hours and 15 minutes for both quarters in the morning and 1 hour 55 minutes for both quarters in the afternoon and than 55 minutes of overtime every day, makes for a good paycheck but an utterly exhausted and stressed out team member.

    You also cant make mistakes ever, not once. If you do you are mocked talked down too scolded like a child and generally disliked.

    Even when a mistake is made by another department you are supposed to get support to fix it but many times you just have to deal with it yourself and not slow down or stop the work/assembly line, and if you do they don't care they just blame you and make you feel like garbage.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who are not just good at the job (seat assembly), but also good at working with and motivating people.

    Stop overworking and underpaying people, Minimum wage increased 3 dollars an hour in the past 6 years and the top rate at Boshoku increased 45 cents (at least keep up with increased cost of living).
