    I worked at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Job security to stay busy fixing repeat issues daily from poor upper management decisions and unqualified workers.

    Cons

    Everything you can image when it comes to the idea of what it would be like to work at terrible hostile company that isn't successful. Long hours are expected. Highly aggressive & micromanaged leadership style. Corporate profits numbers in the stock market is the only thing this company cares about, and at the expense of employee benefits and compensation. Benefits are a joke, unusable and very costly. You are... required to use your personal PTO day during shutdown weeks leaving you almost no remaining time during the rest of the year. Leadership is very threatening to you if you don't follow their micromanagement and limited timelines. Upper management justs asks a bunch of questions about production issues and demands results quickly while not providing any support. The list goes on but you should have the idea.

    Advice to Management

    Just start over. This company has no future if things continue as is.

    I have been working at American Axle & Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good, in my case it's close to home

    Cons

    The management at my Bolingbrook location is horrible. The person in charge here is a micromanager. The management is expecting you to work long hours and if you are salary there is no overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Let the qualified people do their job. If you hire someone that means you trust them, let them do their job and not micromanage

    Pros

    Piece rate is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Long hours and mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to communicate to the shift supervisors more efficiently. Each shift should be given the same information at the same time.

    Pros

    Glad to see it is racially diverse.

    Cons

    Long hours and old school management. We cannot believe how many people are leaving. All based on how they treat their people.

    Advice to Management

    Smile, and listen. We provided you an employee survey and you never responded to the results.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and pays well, along with having great people to work with. There is a lot of room to move up within the company.

    Some downsides of working here are the long hours. It is tiresome to work every day and work very long shifts.
