    I have been working at Hyundai Rotem USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to build confidence in your trade. You will get a lot of deligated responsabilities if you are on the testing and commissioning side of the bussiness.

    Cons

    This is not your common place to work. The culture is anot US. The korean culture has a lot of influence on a day to day operations.

    Advice to Management

    The underatanding of the culture of your work force is extremely important. One should not fight against it, rather understand it and improve on the good qualities that your work force already has.

    Pros

    Proximity to I-95. No other pros.

    Cons

    Wish I could rate less than 0 but I can't. Bad management, pay, work environment, cultural issues, colleagues, you name it. The more difficult question to answer is what isn't wrong with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage.

    I have been working at Hyundai Rotem USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They are more than willing to teach you many skills for you to be successful. Very safety conscious! Genuinely care for employees.

    Cons

    Language and cultural barrier is tough to get through. Pay is WAY below industry standard. Management tends not to listen to employees until there is a real problem/ issue.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and pay your technicians more!

    Pros

    Company is definitely multicultural and somewhat conveniently located in Philadelphia. There's no growth, so it's only good for temporary. Just learn as much as you can as fast as you can and get out.

    Cons

    Very self-contained, adamant, awkward HR policies - or lack thereof, thick skull mgmt, people don't speak English, etc.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much advice for the management, as they are all from Korea and that's probably how they manage a firm over there.

    Pros

    Relatively good payment for hourly workers.
    Over time work also available regularly.

    Cons

    Lack of additional benefits.
    No medical insurance and other benefits for hourly workers.

    Advice to Management

    Need more consideration for local full tie workers.
    Many employee think that job assignment and annual evaluation are not fare.

    I worked at Hyundai Rotem USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work schedule. Start time usually the same, and always has Sundays off. Second, overtime is available if in correct position. You work in recycling good luck, otherwise, you are in good hands. Finally, if you not in recycling or housekeeping, then skills are transferable to other companies.

    Cons

    Lack of raises. I worked for to years straight without out. I understand if company losing money, but they made giant profits. Second, you can not move up. One you hired, you remain there forever.

    Advice to Management

    Teach Korean to Americans for better communication.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here would be the occasional unlimited overtime

    Cons

    It's a union position and it sucks, they will lay you off with no warning; I was laid off 2 weeks after I moved into a new apartment, 3 weeks before Christmas and 4 weeks before my Son's birthday, I'm a single parent and they took no pity on that. No warning was given. The starting salary is pathetic for the type of work you do if you're in production

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee morale and development
