    I worked at Hayes Lemmerz full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with an amazing and talented group of people. Many are still there, including the now CEO, Fred Bently, his admin, HR folks, Sales people, etc. Life lasting relationships were built during my time there. Lots of fun but hard work. Great company values back then and the culture was cream of the crop.

    Cons

    I didn't have any....except for my drive in to work.

    Advice to Management

    Longevity means a lot to prospective employees. Keep it up.

    Pros

    The overall morale of the worldwide U.S. company was positive. People were encouraged to reach out and connect with co-workers in other departments.

    Cons

    When economic times changed the U.S. culture to a Brazilian based corporation, people started looking over their shoulders again and becoming territorial. It was sad to watch.


  11. "Good if you like over time."

    Pros

    Decent insurance, benefits, and pay. Especially for the area.

    Cons

    They will work you everyday for weeks on end. Three 8hr shifts and shift selection is based on seniority so you will be working afternoons and nights for a very long time.

    Advice to Management

    If you were to take a little better care of your employees then maybe moral would come up and maybe production with it. When there is no home/family time it can cause people to become very biter. Everyone deserves a little time off and two days a month just doesn't cut it.
