    I have been working at Drive Automotive Industries of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Drive is one of the few places left that allows you the latitude to grow personally and professionally, while contributing to the overall success of the team and company. The wage and benefit program is very competitive and conversely so is the expected job performance of our associates. The automotive industry is itself a highly competitive field of endeavor. If you’re just looking for a job, Monday through Friday 9:00 to 5:00 then you won’t last; but if you’re looking for a chance to begin a career with the opportunity to advance, and you invest in your own future, then this is the place to make it happen, to have a voice, and to get your chance. Nothing good in life is easy or free.

    Cons

    This is a results oriented business, due to customer demands and any other unforeseen requirements work often times require more than the typical 40 hour work week, especially if there are new program launches. Many times over the past 19 years my weekend family plans were disrupted due to work requirements and yes you are expected to be there. This is the tradeoff, it is not just about you, it is about all of our Customer requirements, all of our People’s requirements, and all of our Investors requirements. Trying to keep them all in sync and in balance is difficult at best.

    Advice to Management

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Drive Automotive Industries of America (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, and opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Work, work, work, and work! This job doesn't give a crap about your personal life, once you become an employee you're basically living there, you work all the time! They had the worst 12 hour schedule ever and they just went back on 7 days (no days off). The temps do all the work while the ones who are hired on are lazy and don't do anything. Supervisors are unprofessional and want the impossible did. I wouldn't advise anyone with a family, kids, or in college to work here because you will not have time for anything else and also yes the money is good but trust you're going to work for every penny of if!

    Advice to Management

    Understand your workers are human and not robots 7 days is ridiculous to have anyone working!

    I have been working at Drive Automotive Industries of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work atmosphere and the compensation in pay. I also enjoyed working for Travis Hall he was a great supervisor.

    Cons

    The only con would have to be the last minute overtime due to customer demands and problems with material coming from the press shop.
