Ive learned a lot while here at Akebono. Specially with PLC. I have made some good friends also. Management is lacking though in some areas and keeps making the same decisions heading in the wrong direction.

Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee), Glasgow, KYFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: 1 hr lunch
Cons: no breaks
this job was ok the co workers were nice but only to the people they liked my day at work consisted of standing for 12 hr a day pushing buttons and loading the oven with brake pads... I learned a little bit about machine operating but not much all I had to do was push buttons on a machine robot.

management was ok also but they didn't come around much after I was trained

this job was really fast pace and I felt I could not do 100% for this company
Assembly Worker (Former Employee), Elizabethtown, KYApril 17, 2014
The company was a good company but I felt that the fast pace was something that I could not keep up and give 100% to the company. I felt like I wasn't able to go a great job for the company like they deserved.

Machine Operator (Former Employee), Glasgow, KYDecember 18, 2013
Pros: good benefits and excellent pay
Cons: no days off and long hours with short notice of overtime.
My routine never changed. I went to the same line and did the same job requirements daily. Management changed based on scheduling. The job did give me a better understanding of the brake assembly on most vehicles. I learned the general maintenance of many different kinds of machines we used. Loved seeing the finished product and meeting our production goals. Made me feel accomplished.

Assembler (Former Employee), Clarksville, TNOctober 29, 2013
Clock in and go to my assigned line. Clean when line is down. The hardest part of my job was pulling parts off the line when they would fail the abs test. The management is ok.

DATA ENTRY CLERK (Current Employee), Elizabethtown, KYOctober 29, 2013
On a daily basis, I enter information provided by line leaders for line stop issues, leak test information, and XMR charts. I have had the pleasure of learning how to prepare parts for testing, what each part is and it's purpose for the complete build, reading and pulling information from blueprints, and creating Excel charts for some information.
