    I have been working at Subaru of Indiana Automotive full-time

    Pros

    Plant shut down in the summer and winter. Attendance bonus for not missing work. 5% shift differential for second and third shift. On site clinic for routine medical issues.No premiums out of your check for health insurance.

    Cons

    If you have an after hours emergency and can't go to the clinic, urgent care or your regular provider, the ER copay is $500. It's waived if admitted but if you need stitches at 1am you're on the hook for $500 bucks. That's outrageous.

    Advice to Management

    Make the hiring process more streamlined.

    Pros

    Paid for Health Care to make up for lower than standard automotive wages. Paid for Purdue classes.

    Cons

    Low wages for automotive. Group leaders are lazy and sit around. Its your job to make everything work smoothly so that the managers don't see how horrible the group leaders are, If you step out of line and talk to the AR (associate relations rep) then you get fired for going above the Group leader in the chain of command. Barbed wire fence adds to the feel of a prison. Basically a last resort job.

    If an automated robot malfunctions, drives off course and runs into you, it is your fault and your threatened with a write up

    All work, punished if your take time for a funeral by being placed into S.T.E.P.S. and threatened daily with losing your job

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of the lazy and useless, listen to your work force associates, stop with the daily threats of losing your job.
