    Pros

    They give 2 days a year off to non-smokers. Makes up for all the breaks the smokers take. You do have to certify that you are a non smoker.

    Cons

    Have an old attitude towards benefits. They need to up their vacation and and treat all office workers the same on time off for illness. Exempt gets weeks off per year, non-exempt gets 5 days a year. Once you use it, they start taking your vacation.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the younger generation from jumping ship, you need to upgrade your benefits.

    Pros

    Plenty of work through maintenance services even after new car building has slowed down. Corporate really does care about things going right but at the plant level it can get petty.

    Cons

    Plant management and their planning can demoralize an entire workforce by giving unclear directions and moving goals to a point where you can't meet anything.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals and hold the managers accountable. Setting unattainable goals are killing the plant's morale.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Strong company in Texas. Good benefits and very competitive pay. Chances for advancement.

    Cons

    Could let employees know further in advance on whether they are working weekends. Could use some more motivation and incentives for hourly employees.

    Pros

    Great Team, Great Benefits for full time employees, Multiple Industries and Opportunities

    Sometimes there seems to be a lack of communication between management, lack of enforcement of company standards.

    When you set standards also enforce them, work on communication between departments.
