Lab Technician / Dynonometer Technician (Former Employee), Rochester Hills, MIJune 1, 2014
Pros: interesting work
Cons: shiftwork, high absenteeism
Learned extensive proprietary testing instruments, some 40-50 years old and some brand new. Management seemed standoffish.the co -workers on days were knowledgeable and friendly. Off shift work co workers were much less willing to help and train. Learning many different control systems built over the last few decades challenging parts of the job was – more... the most hardest challenge, yet a paradox existed there as I enjoying as I work. Also
enjoyed testing actual production parts from many different manufacturers. – less

Great work area/Employees...Management? not so much
Forklift driver (Former Employee), Three Rivers, MIMay 14, 2014
The Environment at American Axle is great to work with especially with other employees, and the balance between work and personal life is perfect. The biggest and only problem that i had is that management isnt very good at managing. I had 1 supervisor but there were other supervisors on the floor directing me to do this and that while other supervisors – more... would tell me to do other things at the same time. There were plenty of times where my own supervisor was harassing me about getting stuff down when another supervisor would tell me that the job he tasked me to do was the most important right now. The job is a union job and I had to call a union member over multiple times, until finally i quite because nothing was being done. All my experiences there come from forklifting, which is a different world entirely from the other positions. – less

Slower paced production.
ASSEMBLER (Current Employee), Three Rivers, MIMarch 25, 2014
American Axle is a good place to work for the first-time factory employee. The hours are reasonably good, with the exception of having to work two Saturdays in a row. The co-workers can be good people to work with, but don't expect to make good friends with the people. Many of them are not trustworthy and love to talk about you behind your back.

I was tricked
Mechanical Engineer Co-op (Current Employee), Lancaster, PAJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: lack of work and management
I started at this position with the hopes of advancing one day, but the second week on the job I found out they were closing our plant. From then I had days of little to no work and was given the cold shoulder by management and many of the employment along side of me.

It was a nice change from doing Construction
Dock Leader (Former Employee), Auburn Hills, MIJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: nice co-workers
Cons: never told you the truth.
It was nice doing something different. I had four different managers in the two years I worked there. Some were good and supportive while the others were not. One of them avoided conflict by avoiding employees and when cornered would just tell them what they wanted to hear. So many people came and went in the short time I was there. No job security – more... at all! – less

Assembly Personnel (Former Employee), Three Rivers, MIJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: many paid breaks
Cons: non flexible with scheduling
It's a factory. You don't really use your brain or mouth... Just do what your told, when your told, how your told... Not for me. I do not like blue collar work. Give me a doctor's office or hospital any day...

Corporate Senior Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee), Detroit, MiSeptember 14, 2013
Pros: compensation, benefits
Cons: no work/life balance, management
I enjoyed working at this company for many years. They offer great opportunities for travel. But the long hours (10-14hr days) and not being able to take time off (weekends were mostly required) were too much. Management is not what it used to be. They used to be able to see the big picture and hold the RIGHT people accountable. Now it appears they – more... don't know what they are doing and just doing things they Think they should do. They hold the wrong people accountable which do nothing to solve the root cause of problems. – less
