Machine Operator, Quality Control (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – December 14, 2016
Job security, and advancement not dictated by work ethic and attendance. They don't hire in yearly like they claim. Worked through a temp agency for just over a year, forced to worked through eves, and holidays. No raises, and lots of uncertainty.
not the absolute worst job
no healthcare, short breaks, non union, long hours, no real holiday pay, constantly changing policies

The typical day begins with loading the trucks with Dunn age for the Romulus facility. Shortly after that review the dock area for overnight shipments that may arrive then start adjusting inventory according to quantities on hand and packing slips of material received. The rest of the day is receiving material, unloading trucks, verifying packing slips, verifying material condition, affixing labels, and move items to warehouse. And then file documents upon completion of verification.
I worked with a group of very intelligent individuals

Team Lead (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – December 5, 2014
A typical day at worked consisted of me arriving thirty minutes before the shift to set the machines. I checked my email to review the shift notes from the previous shift on how the machines ran, maintenance to see if there were repairs made or quality alerts from IPQC Lab. I then checked to see that all necessary paperwork for the operators was present. There was a meeting at the beginning of the shift to relay any pertinent information. Any where from two to four hours into the shift I would go around the department and conduct a layered process audit. I learned that every situation is different and needs to be treated as such. Also that if there is a clear understanding of what's expected of people and what needs to be done it's easier to get everyone on board and execute. Management was available to all the employees. My coworkers were awesome. Everyone was committed to getting the job done. The hardest part of the job was not always getting the proper support to complete a task. The most enjoyable part of my job was a sense of accomplishment with each day knowing that I gave the day one hundred percent.
