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

    Pros

    A great group of people to work with and a solid product line to sell.

    Cons

    When I worked there YEARS ago, we didn’t have CRM software as a sales team. I’m sure things have changed since then.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, Benefits, Semi-Annual Bonuses, Safe and plenty of opportunity

    Cons

    Lack of communication, cronyism, plant 1 barely has 40 hours a week, plant 2 has been working nonstop with no relief in site. Ergonomically lacking - people are thought of as machines and little thought of how they feel (for example, they will work someone in the same job, day in and day out with little or no thought of how they feel being told to work in a 3 ft space for hours, days, weeks, months at a time)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate relevant news to workers (many things are told to management but rarely is trickled to workers), create an environment that promotes career minded people, end the cronyism - apply rules equally across the board. Do more with the community in Vonore and Madisonville (sponsor high school teams etc..). Unify the plants (1 and 2) so the rules are applied the same at both (currently this is NOT the case).

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, but not a good work environment. Management only concerns are themselves. No family atmosphere. Good pay but not worth it.

    Cons

    No communication whatsoever. Unfair and unlawful treatment of employees. Upper management is above everyone else and treat and show employees that. They don't care. Since Plant 2 opened I have no job security with all the cutbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in whole new management or this company is gonna fail in the near future. It's inevitable watching businesses leave and we get no newer business.
