      Great benefits, decent pay, not worth it. You've been warned. Took 26 months to get hired from MAU.

      Pros

      Pay is good for the type of work that it is. The benefits, especially health insurance, are outstanding, I pay $130 or so bi-weekly for me and my wife and kid. There's a $150 individual/$300 family deductible and $1000 indv. /$2000 fam. out of pocket maximum. If it were just me or just me and my kid, it would be more like $30-40 bi-weekly for the same plan. They also have cheaper plans with HSA options and higher deductibles.

      Cons

      This is the type of company you work for when you don't plan on working anywhere else for your whole life. The experience means nothing. Nobody cares that you're one of the best and fastest in the world at bolting bumpers onto X5s. The pay structure and the way they handle seniority means that every day you work there they sink their claws deeper into you making it harder and harder to leave. When you're well established in the company and making top pay on day shift, it makes no sense to leave and go to Mercedes or another manufacturing job because you'll start right back at the bottom. You've been warned. Start this job only if you plan on staying less than a year or if you plan on staying for your whole life. The biggest con is the monotony of the work. I can't put into words the effect that repeating the same 69 second task over and over for 10 hours has on your psyche. It's awful and will literally turn you into a mindless drone.

      Pros

      Good health insurance benefits for employees

      Cons

      This place is the armpit of the lowest of low. Stiffly controlled and operated by clandestine/mafia-like clique. Employees -- most particularly -- contractors, are treated like feces. Member of the clandestine/mafia-like clique ( maintenance, production leaders ridicule, bully and constantly harass new employees to the point of mental breakdown.

      Since the plant opened 25 years ago, some associates can get stuck in the "we've always done it this way" mentality
