    I worked at Nexteer Automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly nice people work in Auburn Hills and Saginaw. Pay is good. Be sure you know sales force or similar. They cater to millineals.

    Cons

    Management demands a lot of time in Saginaw even though there are offices in Auburn Hills and Troy. At first it is important to learn the product but NOT necessary months down the road.

    Pros

    Your Co-Workers are great people, helpful and understanding, makes the work day at Nexteer bearable.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE Company policies, if you think you're going to have a steady shift (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) think again...switched on a whim (based on need of production) so if you're a single parent good luck!

    Pros

    Coworkers are pretty understanding and chill to talk to, some supervisors are cool. Job is easy, and you can volunteer for overtime when not forced, usually.

    Cons

    Some supervisors are also too strict and play favorites. Forced overtime every weekend. People are always told that layoffs are coming, at least twice a year, so they worry and spread rumors.

    Advice to Management

    Leave employees to their devices, let them work, Don't be all up in their grill all the time. And for goodness sake, lay off the forced over time every once in a while! People need a break!

    Pros

    The pay is where it should be in the industry. They have excellent benefits (hap). Union shop, contract based environment.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Lack of organization. The environment is about the quantity instead of quality. The machines are never updated, just slap a band-aid on it and keep going.

    Advice to Management

    The moral of the people needs to be address. Keep your people happy and they will go to the ends of the Earth for you.

    Good pay. Plenty of overtime

    Cons

    Management misuses employees. Assigns heavy workloads and expects more to be done by a single person when multiple people would get task completed faster

    Advice to Management

    Preplan work and supply proper tool, training and personal for duty
