    I have been working at Superior Industries (Minnesota) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, opportunity to learn new skills. Care about employees and developing men and giving them the skill set to succeed in today’s competitive job market.

    Cons

    At Superior it’s encouraged to work and give your self to what you do. This results in spending time at work sometimes weekends sometimes late days.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is one of the best I have work with, they care about the workers safety, job training, and over all performance. The culture of opportunity is already a focal point with this amazing team.

    I worked at Superior Industries (Minnesota) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great for expanding your resume with diversity of work
    Friendly managers
    Great coworkers
    Engineering works directly with shop
    Not overbearing management

    Cons

    1. Pay is very low compared to nearby industry (especially in Prescott Valley)
    2. Growth potential is limited. To move up someone has to retire or quit
    3. If you are a college hire, your pay will not grow with your skill set. In fact, you might get a comment about "you shouldn't expect this big of a raise every year". When you ask what you could've done to earn that extra few dollars to your salary, the response is for you to get more, someone else has to get less. Well yeah, if I am performing at a higher level, that would stand to reason.
    4. Your check says 40 hours, but you are working 45, and often have to address questions on your hour lunch, so that can only go up.
    5. The church is very involved in this business, so just take that however you would like. Just be aware of how that culture may influence the view of who you are and how you work.
    6. The average benefits are used as a tool to make you believe that your benefits are better than you'll find anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how you might open up some small promotion levels. I know that promotions dont always come with a wage increase (especially at first) but that would at least help people feel like they are working up to something. The lack of growth opportunity is felt in engineering and the shop.
    The company has seen significant growth in the past couple of years. Dont forget that is directly tied to the work of your employees. Time to start acting (in some ways) like the big company you are becoming.
    Dont think that just because you have overtime for shop employees that this somehow makes up for a decent starting pay.
    Start doing management evaluations. If you really care, time to find out what people think when they aren't worried about their opportunities down the line. You can find out a lot about what small changes can drastically improve employee morale.
    Requiring salaried employees to work extra hours every week is pretty. That's fast food mentality. Especially when your wage is low.

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded. Great medical benefits. Caring managers and executives. Core values are actually practiced. Comfortable dress code. Freedoms to make decisions.

    Cons

    Growing very fast, which can feel like a whirlwind some days, but it's usually a fun ride. If you don't commit yourself to reaching out, the headquarter's community can be boring.

    Great people, good relationships. Getting to work free of restraints of a stubborn manager. Decent work environment, good moral code.

    Non-competitive salary or time off. High value on time at the company rather than skills or degrees. Loyalty is the biggest factor in raises.
