Typical corporate America nonsense
Tool Room Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 19, 2017
I was hired into the Fort Wayne AAM/Accugear plant as a "tool room tech", which I'm qualified for. Sadly, as is so often the case, management, to include the plant mamager, did not have a clue about CNC machining, and the resources myself and another employee needed to do our jons. Worse, the 4 people in the tool room were doing the work of 12+ people.
AAM had shut down a plant outside Detroit, and brought the tool room work they were doing for the Fort Wayne plant to our place. A totally half-baked plan, made worse due to bad/crashed machines, and a lack of QC resources.
Management there loves to threaten and harass people, definitely a situation where they do as much as they think they can get away with. They get away with it because of the nasty corporate atmosphere, and it's a non-union facility. I understand AAM in Detroit and Buffalo was good to work for some years ago. Not now. Turnover is terribly high, too.
Just about everything. Surveillance cameras by the break room. Just a lot of hasslw for a factory.
