    I have been working at Subaru of Indiana Automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package - no premiums.
    Available OT - high wages.
    Focus on employee health/well-being/safety.
    Good co-workers, and room for advancement.
    Ergonomically friendly - no positions require lifting more than 30 pounds.
    Work rotations ensure full body utilization and lessen fatigue/stress on an individual body part.

    Cons

    Mandatory OT - up to 2 hours daily (not a con to myself personally).
    If on line - repetitive and can at times be boring.

    Advice to Management

    Good job.

    Clean and organized place to work
