    Pros

    Good pay for the area. Very clean and very well organized. Safety oriented.

    Cons

    This is not coming from a disgruntled employee, I left NSK voluntarily on good terms. Human Resources seems to be very power hungry. They rarely promote from within. Instead of promoting a current employee, they'll often hire from an outside source. It's all about who you know at NSK. I've seen an employee who was employed for less than a year start at an entry level position be promoted to a Team Leader/Supervisor, because his uncle played golf with the production manager; all while there where other employees that had more seniority and qualifications not be considered. Very little support for women that become pregnant during employment. Just like most corporations, product comes first, employees come last.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee moral. Promote those that deserve it, not those that you know.

    I worked at Nsk Steering Systems America part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The chance to get more factory experience and get better with my learning skills. I always thought of myself as a working man so i want to have a good factory job

    Cons

    Down time makes you get behind and have to work over time. machines kept breaking down almost on a weekly basis

    Advice to Management

    I know all factories have their problems with machines but i think if the factory had better equipment or tools, things would progress

    I worked at Nsk Steering Systems America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good money for area and easy work if your fast and follow directions.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. Production is full of drama. Not much downtime. Can lose job for smallest reason if you catch attention of HR. Hiring manager is actually Firing manager. Posibly has firing quota.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting your good workers go and let go of the slackers and suck-ups. Maybe worry more about actions and less about rumors and lies people spread.

    I have been working at Nsk Steering Systems America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been here three years and I've watched it double in the size of the building and the number of employees. The pay has become competitive with other factories in the area. There is plenty of room for upward mobility.

    Cons

    The company is not very organized at all! Because it does give almost anyone a chance, there has been a growing culture of bad leadership. The buddy system is in full effect. There is an extremely negative work environment. Most of the workers feel overworked and underpaid and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to find out what is really going on in the plant by surveying the employees. I have worked with a number of supervisors who outright lies in my face and got away with it for a considerable amount of time.

    Pros

    Pay was competitive.
    Business outlook is bright.

    Cons

    Worst excuse for HR I've ever encountered. Rude, crude, uncaring bunch. No trust.
    Zero accountability for line engineers. Huge amount of down time requires mandatory overtime to make up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real HR dept.
