    I worked at Factory Motor Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were great. They do work with you if you have to go to the doctor. I have no other cons for this place

    Cons

    Low pay, cheap benefits. If you are not a favorite you will be treated unfairly and harassed. It may seem good when you first start, but goes down fast after a couple of months of working there. Management is terrible, treated unfairly and no one to turn to to complain about management. It's all about the management people no fun benefits for others. If you are not a favorite you have no chance of advancement. Run away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and listen to them. They are the ones that are doing all the work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    While I understand that the point of any business is making money, I'd like to think that there's a right way and a wrong way to go to it. Whoever is in charge of this outfit might want to re-think how they're doing things, as I for one am pretty disappointed with them.
