    Pros

    Good benefits including premium free insurance. The two week summer shutdown and one week Christmas shutdown are great too.

    Cons

    Long hours and mandatory overtime. People are treated like expendable assets depending on your group leader or department. Pay compared to other auto manufacturing plants is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Respond to feedback from associates about their management. A lot of group leaders are essentially bullies and there is not any accountability. AR reps are not very effective in this instance.
