    Pros

    Easy place to work with good people. The management team is very knowledgeable and professional and talks to us as adults. The last place I worked did not do this too well.

    Cons

    A lot of OT. If you like OT this is the place for you as you can make a lot of money.

    I have been working at Henniges Automotive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a job, cant really say anything good about its an ok job to work. I do like the advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Majority of the salary staff has poor communication skills, especially the HR crew except for the little cute one. They are unorganized with the actual works inside the Reidsville plant could really use some higher pay to be able to save money from a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Just increase wages to $15.00 dollar minimum coming in an do away with the temporary agency hire direct.

    I have been working at Henniges Automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People that are not in leadership roles are good people.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Compensation is based on who you know. My colleague left the organization and came back in less than a year, he is now making more (A LOT more) than people that have been there for years. Don't expect anything at review time. Leadership does not respect others. Leadership won't even speak to you unless you speak first and in some cases won't even make eye contact. Turn over is extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat everyone fairly. Period. Do what's right.

    I worked at Henniges Automotive (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone that works there is extremely helpful and nice. The pay was comparable to other companies in the industry. The work hours were reasonable.

    Cons

    The industry is slow to adapt and this leads to slow moving innovation. Although Henniges is better at doing this than it's competition but is still slow moving for a smaller company.

    Advice to Management

    Push it's employees more.

    Good pay and benefits: health, dental, vision, and retirement. Training available for multiple job duties and shifts.

    Unscheduled over time, which can make work / home life balance difficult. Can be subject up to 30 plus hours of overtime in a week.

    I have been working at Henniges Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice building, some nice people, and leaders in Finance are very smart, the HR staff is good but the HR leaders are awful. The engineers are smart and driven to succeed. Quality and supply chain seem to be improving.

    Cons

    The company is full of people who worked together at another auto supplier some years ago. That is a tight group with its evil ringleader in HR. They are vindictive, petty people who will stab you and each other in the back and front, tell you, and then expect you to thank them for it. There is a lot of inbreeding in the hiring process. I do not recommend. I recommend running away as long as the same HR leaders are in lace.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize your HR and finance departments. HR, from the top down and finance from within. The HR V.P. is a cancer to the company and a culture and morale killer. People do not like or trust her and they shouldn't. She only got her job because of her husband's relationship with the prior owner - she had no c-suite experience before that and it shows. She hires her old friends and family to keep herself protected. In other areas, note that key executives were let go but she was kept, inexplicably.

    I worked at Henniges Automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a very low bar as far as performance goes.

    Cons

    Hard work and innovation are not rewarded. Everyone in salary positions gets the exact same raise regardless of performance. Most of the people have worked there a very long time and are close to retirement. They are very unwilling to innovate or change in even the smallest way to improve manufacturing processes.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let someone else do your job, you are certainly no good at it.
