    I worked at Rieter Automotive North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Even though the pay is not extremely good you can work all the overtime you want. Write your own pay check.

    Cons

    They do not treat employees well. They can force you to work 16 hrs./day. You can be forced to work 7 days/week. The jobs in the molding dept. are very hard on your shoulders, arms. There are quite a few work place injuries in which the company's policy is to fight all.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way that you would like to be treated. At least pretend that you care for their welfare and that they are important to the operation. Put people in management who have proven skills to preform their duties.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the carpets that are put into new cars. The manufacturing side was very interesting to learn. Becoming a supervisor is very easy.

    Cons

    Very little job recognition. Products aren't interesting. Buildings are hot and poorly ventilated. management is not experienced. Very poor communication. Poor salary. Flooding is very common. Outdated equipment and buildings that are very disorganized. A lot of work is being outsourced to Mexico.

    Advice to Management

    They need to hire managers that are competent at managing, not just move someone who's been there a long time into a management position.

    Pros

    Rieter Automotive is less than 15 miles away from my home.

    Cons

    Having an assistant plant manager calling the shots for these peoples future, and being as "unstable" as he is. In the 24 yrs. being with this company, I have never seen anyone get away with what this man has done to the moral of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the problem, which is the Assistant plant manager, that would increase plant moral, which would also increase productivity.
