    Fairly good growing experience if i would have had a degree

    Team Leader (Former Employee) Vonore, TN

    ProsGreat benifits
    A great oppurtunity for over time and to make money
    Some bonus's were given when the company did well

    ConsComing from a maw and paw type of setting, trying to make it to a japanese operated company
    some of the employees are hard to work with

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to learn your employees and actualy take into consideration some of their ideas
    Show the employees that they are an important part of the company or that they are an asset and not just a worker

    Good company with good benefit but hard to advance your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Newnan, GA

    ProsThey have a very good benefit package. People working there are down to earth and fun to work with. They provide huge employee discounts on company products such as piano and motorcycles. Management is good as far as taking care of employees. If you work as an engineer or marketing person, you would have an opportunity to test ride the products you develop and it is fun. The company makes ATV, Golf car and Water Vehicle.

    ConsManufacturing company does not really provide a big raise. Especially, Japanese companies are known to take good care of employees with good benefits but they don't give a huge monetary compensation. Seniority seems to be considered for promotion rather than performance. Management is good but can be improved. It is hard to get promoted to management positions since the parent company in Japan keeps sending expatriates to those positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should give more empowerment and opportunities for locals to get ahead. Innovation comes from variety of opinions and diversity.

    Good Pay, Good benefits, but can be unstable and unfriendly if also pursuing education.

    Assembler (Former Employee) Newnan, GA

    ProsDecent pay of $14.11/hr. after 3 months of fulfilling reasonable "satisfactory" requirements. Training is usually very thorough and it is very rare to be "left in a lurch" though it does happen. Management is extremely communicative, often calling employee meetings to explain downtime (or overtime) and when work flow and hours are expected to be back to normal. Quarterly bonuses ranging from $200 to as much as much as $800.

    ConsAs an assembly job it is very very monotonous. Depending on the area you are assigned to you may have very little to almost too much to do within the time limit (which was 2 minutes while I was employed). Moving to different areas during the first few months was far too often for my taste, though this may be a pro to some. Hours can be shaky, over time can be excessive at times (58 hours per week is usually the absolute maximum). Actual employment has been unstable (as of 2009), with only 4 months worked out of 6. Temporary unemployment is given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequested reasonable changes from employees regarding their workstation could happen more quickly, as this can be critical in comfort, safety, and work flow efficiency. Communication regarding vacation time left and attendance/performance could be more forthcoming.
