    I worked at Michigan Production Machining full-time

    Pros

    Other employees are great people to work with

    Overtime is always plentiful

    Cons

    Management needs to look at there people inside the organization and improve on the managers they keep

    Loyalty...there is none do a great job come up with ideas then get punished for them, or someone else will take your idea from you and claim it is theirs

    Advice to Management

    Please look at why things do not get done correctly and fix that problem/person.

    Pros

    You work a lot of hours, have a nice set pay, and get a good effort from it.

    Cons

    The chemicals are everywhere, you don't have a set schedule, and you have to work 3 months before getting benefits.

    I worked at Michigan Production Machining full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good money if you're getting overtime.

    Cons

    Do not expect to have a life outside of working and sleeping. Long hours 7 days a week. High turnover in lower level employees.

    They "Hire from within" not based on who can actually do the job they need, but based off of who has been there longer.

    They say that they have "voluntary" overtime, but that depends on what building you're in and who your supervisor is. I was working 70-84 hours a week. With no

    A lot of non-English speakers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people who do not speak any English if you do not have an interpreter who is with them at all times. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to communicate with your "team members".

    I worked at Michigan Production Machining full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Pay check looks nice as long as you get that 66+ hour work week.

    Cons

    The only way to make money is to work 10 hours a day 5 days a week and 8 hours a day on the weekends to get the overtime pay. Most of the people do not care about their jobs and are only there to get a pay check. Supervisors are continuously telling machine operators to pass BAD parts but then when customers complain about the bad parts, the machine operator gets the write up. The pay scales are backwards, the shift that is expected to do the most work gets paid the least while the shift that does the least amount of work gets paid more. Old and broken down machines and gauges. Half the time parts are bad because the machines or gauges aren't working correctly. Absolutely filthy working conditions, 9 out of 10 machines leak fluids of some sort. Even with slip resistant boots it is like working on an ice rink. There are probably 50 or so more CONs I can think of but I will not list them all.

    Advice to Management

    FIRE ALL OF THE LAZY PEOPLE. If you want your quality to improve, then get rid of the people who are passing the bad parts. (It isn't the machine operators.) Supervisors and management personnel need to be replaced with people who know how to run the machines and who know what the parts are supposed to look like. Get new machines and gauges. Machine operators can not be held responsible for passing bad parts if their gauge is broken and no one will fix it.

    Pros

    alot of overtime, but no money per hour. You work with some good people, they are friendly and care about their jobs and the product they make.

    Cons

    Always one sided, never look at employees as people, allow good supervisors to leave and keep pour ones. Never concider the big picture on employee treatment. very closed minded about change. Production suffers because supervisors sit in the office playing on the computer instead of helping the employees with their machine problems, quality problems are a constant becuse the supvisors don't know anything about the parts. They lie to their customers, ship knowing bad or at best questionable parts. This gives no incentive to employees to do good work.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back all the people you lost that care and get ride of the ones sitting around getting paid for doing nothing.

    Pros

    You get plenty of overtime, and hourly employees care about their jobs and quality, as much as they are permitted

    Cons

    Long hours, no respect from management, fail to correct known problems within supervisors. No communication within management. Fail to repair machines in timely manor. Human resource is ineffective in resolving internal problems, shows favoritism to people they like versus whats right and wrong. Plant management is total disarray.

    Advice to Management

    Atleast lesson to the supervisors about whats really happening in the shop and act according with your own hand book. Keep the supervisors that really care and get rid of the ones that don't. Let employees know whats happening within the shop and what the company is facing, and what they can look forward to, new jobs, new quality standards ect. don't keep everyone guessing.
