    I have been working at Eaton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good for this area. Lots of potential for the company, especially since the Eaton merger. Very good Union job.

    Cons

    Since the merger there has been lots of change in management. It seems at times like they are lost and overlook the problems that really matter. Very poor employee relations, causing a big gap between the shop floor and upper management. Once you tenure there are very limited ways to "move up the ladder" I've been there 5 years and feel like there is not much more there for me.

    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Community involvement is encouraged and supported.

    Cons

    Upper management is disconnected. Site management is sketchy but is the law of the land. If your manager does not like you, forget it.

    I worked at Eaton

    Pros

    Has benefits, and pays twice a month. Which if you work any job pretty much offers the same. Tuition assistance is offered for people looking to pursue additional education.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, no structural whatsoever, hourly runs the company, no support from upper management and no overtime. You’re expected to put in 9-10 hour days; sometimes more and your pay doesn’t change. You have to work 3 weekend days to get 1 comp day off. Starting salary is low. With many of the hourly people making more than you without overtime.

    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    decent benefits, nice company outings, personal protective equipment is supplied.

    Cons

    No overtime notification, they tell you your working 8 hrs at the start of the shift and then inform you halfway through its 10 hrs and you need to be back in 8 hrs for another shift. Awful work/life balance their motto should be "you live here now". 1st shift is where the "old timers" reside, I say reside because they are certainly not working. They produce 1/4 of the numbers required and the other shifts must pick up the slack. management DOES NOT CARE about any of the problems that arise because of this they just shrug their shoulders and say "you know how first shift guys are, they put in their time...) If you take pride in your trade do not work here. They just push product out the door even if it failed quality control to meet deadline (lots of returns). Management uses the company as a stepping point for their career then happily move on. Pay is sub par for welding and the wage increases are a joke, 3% a year(until you top out in your pay scale) for everyone even if your the hardest working employee or the guy who hides in the bathroom all day. LOTS of misleading info and out right lies from upper management down to shift leads. They claim culture and values but its all for show to look good to potential new hires and customers they don't actually believe in them. Oh and lets not forget the gossip, back stabbing, and nepotism.

    I worked at Eaton full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of OT definitely can pick up LOTS of skills. It depends on YOU as the worker/contractor if you had the drive to do things without someone explaining it to you and correctly that gets you noticed. Almost of the production staff were more than willing to show you the procedure to a job but if you cant listen to verbal instruction or replicate what is shown in front of you then dont bother them. Many are happy doing what that they do and nothing more, that the majority of the production line they would be fine with repetitive tasks. Me i was able to move around interact with others and learn how things operated in the company They were all cool, from QC, the techs, all the staff no matter ur race or skin color you were still treated with respect If you wanted to work they will throw at you everything till you were worked. Which never happened with me, the work was to easy. \

    Cons

    The position you were hired as will be the same as when you leave. raises/ promotions/ bonuses those are words of salary employees. direct hires have 0 incentive to learn the new skills because @ at end of the day you worked more but the check doesn't reflect it. It gave many reason to just put the bare minimum and when 8 hour shift hit they would vanish If your looking to make bank it aint here, even with OT and doing Saturdays!! you would get over a grand weekly which is not bad but considering you can do better elsewhere it wouldn't justify being the person your supervisor would depend on to stay late and finish someone else work. Every worker on the assembly line is easily replaceable. lack of communication and leadership is none existent. Upper management lacks to understand how things are done. They could raise quota as much as they want but the fact of the matter is you can only have xx produced in a given day ($$$ will get more produced) there is no proper planning for the next day they focus on the now and not the future. No one knows who is calling the shots or making decisions. Its so weird its almost as if its done overseas. You can have a solution to every problem but the problem is in management, which they cant manage due to no proper structuring. Management cant be direct with its contractors when it comes to comes to bad news. There quietly always trying to figure how to get rid of their weaker employees to free up their bonuses . Their sneaky, they'll have you train a new hire oblivious that its your replacement. As a result once they believes you have passed on your knowledge, they'll call the agency and terminate your contact much sooner

    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is nothing good here. Possibly the affordable cafeteria food.

    Cons

    The facilities are out dated. The bathrooms are very smelly with drainage issues yet they do nothing about it. Management is all white males and it seems like only white males get promotions. HR protects upper management even though many people leave due to mistreatment. Make employees take mandatory paid leaves while white management gets promotions and equity. Compensation and bonuses vary between areas of business.
