    I worked at Roush Industries for more than 8 years

    Pros

    exciting work, lots of variety, LOTS of responsibility, promotion is possible if you can stand to stick around that long, good experience to take to a better job

    Cons

    HIGH PRESSURE, HIGH STRESS, LOW PAY Sucks when you realize your friends at real companies work half as hard for more money and better benefits. No one has ever regretted leaving Roush. My biggest regrets- 1) not leaving at 5:00 each day 2) not quitting sooner

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not slaves

    I worked at Roush Industries part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to drive some pretty cool cars and see a lot of the state. Work is mostly unsupervised.

    Cons

    Low pay, poor communication from management. Poor management in general. Often have to drive vehicles that are not road-worthy and have no safety equipment like airbags etc. Work schedule changes by the day and many times you arrive at 5am only to be told your not working today. You are not allowed to eat in the cars and if you bring your lunch you will be eating outside in all weather types.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the people than the cars. Listen to more than just the feedback about the vehicles.

    I worked at Roush Industries

    Pros

    Over time is occassionally available. It was a steady paycheck. A lot of diversity in activities, so a great deal of potential to learn new skills.

    Cons

    Long hours. Low pay compared to similar companies. Very little time off. No work-personal balance allowed, expected to put company before family. No job security

    Advice to Management

    Quick firing people for no reason, atmosphere of fear lowers morale.
