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

    Pros

    There are no Pros. Would not recommend.

    Cons

    The Continental Plant in Fletcher was very unsafe. They had double the injuries compared to most automotive plants. Management did very little to help the situation. They did not have fall protection to protect the operators from falling into acid tanks. Waste water operators had to work in areas that was always filled with acid fumes. Management would not rotate operators at different jobs to reduce strains. Operators were working 12 hour days lift 8 to 15 pound parts over 8000 times per day.
    The management staff did not care enough about quality only about daily numbers. Making brake calipers is safety critical component and on the assembly line poka-yoke were turned off in order to produce parts when they were not working properly. I would not want my brakes to come from Continetial.

    Advice to Management

    Top management staff needs to care about safety.
