    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Tower International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you're looking for long hours, seven days a week, and no life, then this place is for you.

    Cons

    Turn-over rate is ridiculous due to the culture and hostile work environment created by leaders and managers. The culture practiced here is lead by intimidation and nasty attitudes. If you like working seven days a week, being treated with disrespect, and be given zero praise for your hard work and efforts then this is the place for you. Health insurance isn't favorable and expensive, the provider is Blue Cross Blue Shield.

    I worked at Tower International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and vacation. Work is fairly easy to learn and I found it very rewarding.

    Cons

    Some of the jobs were heavy and there’s a lot of repetitive motion. The people are a mixed bag, you cannot keep everyone happy so concentrate on just doing your job properly.

    Advice to Management

    A tad less micromanaging let’s employees know you trust them which has a positive impact on their trust in you.

    I have been working at Tower International

    Pros

    Overtime, benefits, UAW and the chance to gain lean manufacturing experience is there if you want to take the initiative

    Cons

    Unorganized and kind of sporadic decision making, day and night shift are two completely opposite companies which causes problems for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Practice more communication

    Former Employee - Production Worker in Plymouth, MI

    I worked at Tower International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great pay,great benefits especially the personal days off per your,many time off for holidays and shut down,if your a good welder and have a good crew on your station you get plenty of rest time,just keep your gun clean,working and basket stocked with parts

    Cons

    maybe the heat during the summer months can get very very hot but when I worked there the union/plant provided cool drinks, another is the personal half day many problems there have to wait to long for the supervisor to send a floater to take your place.Too many employees taking too long for lunch or break and getting back late causing the line to start slow. Too much supervisory and managerial changes just before the layoffs started

    I have been working at Tower International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are good, pay is decent, hours suck. Jobs isn’t that hard, mostly mess with fanuc robots and touch up welds.

    Cons

    Hours suck and management doesn’t care about you or your work you do. Just cycle time and quantity out the door

    Listen to employees and give some time off!

    Pros

    The management team really works together. They are constantly trying to improve. They hold quarterly information meetings. Air conditioned and clean environment. And recently added fans at work stations. People work well together, recently had an employee organized lunch cook-out. Family picnic get together next month.

    Cons

    It is a start-up environment so things are constantly changing and people are very busy. Contractors in the facility that don't work for Tower. Some overtime for right now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to and involving the colleagues in production. Let us know how we can help?
