    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for learning, you can learn how to do pretty much anything you want to while there, such as CNC and mills / lathes. It is a solenoid manufacturing facility, so there are many complex systems of manufacturing and test to improve your familiarity and skill. You will keep busy and after you become accustomed to the facility you will enjoy the job, at least in my experience. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    The floor smells rather pungent at first, but you get used to it. Earplugs are required on the floor, so it takes some time to manage that without getting ear infections. Expected to work more than 40 hours a week with no overtime pay (As salary employee).

    Advice to Management

    Reduce HTI employment to improve quality of parts produced.

    Pros

    Beautiful area, decent work experience.

    Cons

    Company morale is at an all time low. Awful work-life balance. Very judgmental work staff. Everything seems like a competition between work staff to see who can get the most work done. Also, I feel like upper management gives little respect to their employees. It's really not enjoyable to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work life balance. Treat employees equally.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of time off as well as overtime if you like overtime.

    Cons

    very fast paced, off shifts could use more support/resources.

    I worked at BorgWarner full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours were good and it was close to home.

    Cons

    They don't pay enough for working 3rd Shift. And when you file sexual harassment you get fired or should I say let go and will call you back if work picks up.

    Advice to Management

    Quick siding with upper management when they are the ones who was accused for sexual harassment against an employee.

    Advice to Management

    corporate management needs to listen and act on the individual companies' needs
