    Former Employee - Calibration Engineer in Livonia, MI

    I worked at ZF TRW full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Job responsibilities will challenge you and advance your technical abilities. Pays pretty well. Prepares you to find your next job.

    Cons

    Management is lacking. Training is minimal / non-existent. Management has very little idea of what goes on at lower level and makes decisions based on very little actual knowledge. Opportunity for advancement is poor. Lots of gossip and negative talk about co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to add checks and balances to management structure.

    Former Employee - Assembler in Fenton, MI
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ZF TRW full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy work, paid-breaks, 8 hour shifts, some over-time.

    Cons

    Unprofessional atmosphere, Rude co-workers, lazy supervisors

    Advice to Management

    If you have rules in place they should apply to everyone. To provide a professional atmosphere and structure on the shop floor the rules shouldn't change based on race, sex, or age. I witnessed drinking alcohol on shop floor and women who were close to their supervisors get away with everything they wanted too. I refused to be flirtatious with all the old men and minded my own business. There were times I was the... only one working because the other woman were off messing around.
