    I worked at True Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people, corporate has an on-site cafeteria

    Cons

    Too many rules, this isn’t high school. Plenty of people have left the company and have said the same thing over and over again and nothing ever changes.

    Advice to Management

    They know what’s wrong, they just don’t care enough to help make positive changes to show the employees that they matter to the company.

    I have been working at True Manufacturing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is great. Workload is decent but there is down time. Flex hours are getting better. 401k is decent with a match. Dental and Vision insurance is great.

    Cons

    Office dress code is still strict. No polo shirts, no jeans or tennis shoes. The health insurance is a very high deductible HSA plan that is absolutely worthless. Still stuck with set hours and no time flexing (can't work a short day and make up the time throughout the week). No remote work at all even though this is proven to improve morale and increase production.

    Advice to Management

    Do not claim you have work life balance, you don't. Stop the HSA only nonsense and give your employees a choice for their healthcare. Business casual, say it with me. That means polos for men instead of button shirts (we don't wear ties anymore). CASUAL FRIDAYS! Finally let employees who can or sometimes must WORK REMOTELY! Even if it's once a month. Take the leap and join the modern office!

    Pros

    Pay, hours, overtime and some people

    Cons

    They do not care about the treatment of the female employees. Males can say or do anything thet want and nothing happens.

    Advice to Management

    Treat women with respect by showing you wont let them be treated like crap or before you know it you'll have a lawsuit

    I worked at True Manufacturing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros for me.

    Cons

    Supposed to be about safety but it’s soooo many hazards everywhere. There’s nowhere for you to put your personal items. Then they don’t tell you that you have to watch out for the forklift drivers while you working so you have to be prepared to stop what your doing for them to do what they have to. They have some people walking over each other on jobs. They make you sweep the last 5 minutes before you leave with the building extremely hot. The leads just be sitting most of the time. They have tools that don’t have a safe place to go like a hand saw. It’s just terrible.

    I have been working at True Manufacturing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are very competitive

    Cons

    Unstable work environment, very poorly managed, people are treated like tools and not humans. They work 4 10's but since switching to that a couple of years ago they've added a whole lot more mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    In your orientation class you talk about how much you value the opinions of your employees. It might be worth your time to consider actually doing that. When you have an excessive amount of turn over then there's something wrong with how the company is being managed.
