Fast paced, quota driven environment. Suited for those who can multi-task and needs almost to no supervision.
Light Industrial Laborer (Former Employee), Highland Park, MI – May 15, 2014
Depending on which team you were on, we worked 10 hour shifts, 4 days a week. It's a very fast paced environment due to the fact that each cell feeds the main line. There are no surplus parts in case of a problem in the cells. You have to have an eye for details, one scratch on a part that does get caught in time causes a delay and may cause the line – more... to work over. i worked almost every job from the cells to the main line so I won't go into too much detail about individual jobs. Just know that management is always watching, but they are not afraid to pitch in if things get behind. For me, since I've been around this type of work all of my life, none of the jobs were hard, but I will say that wherever you work your co-workers will make the job easier. Everyone helps each other out. – less
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Wayne, PA – September 18, 2013
At my time at Anchor Staffing Inc. I learned many new skills. They took me on knowing I had very little Administrative Skills, but they taught me and I learned them quickly. Every morning Monday through Friday I worked 8-5. Mondays and Tuesdays were payroll set up days, where I would have to collect all time sheets faxed in or e-mailed to the office. – more... I had to fax them down to corporate office for them to be processed. I also kept a spread sheet in Excel that totaled up the Quan for my boss. In this job I rebuilt resumes that the recruiters sent me. My experience at Anchor was a great one the employees here made the work place fun. I am hoping to find another job in Administrative Assistant, due to our office closing in October. – less
General Laborer (Current Employee), Parma, MI – September 3, 2013
Pros: top pay.excellent benefits
Cons: stress from emmature peple, and cross traning, 12r 7days
deferring jobs at maci.. good pay and excellent benefits .do not acquire points and you'll get hired in much faster. lots of hr's.1st we come in to a briefing and thin stretching. off to your duty's. in most departments its ezy work once you get the hang of it. in my department their is a lot of cross training for deferent jobs that you will be preforming. 5 – more... types of management: plant shift manager, manager ,team leader, assistant team leader and a person in charge. my coworkers are very immature. for me the stress of the coworkers and the sporadic music from faulting out machines is not worth the 800 a week or the excellent benefits – less
Production Worker (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – August 14, 2013
I worked at DAP on a temporary assignment. I was a bit disappointed, however, that when DAP was rehiring through Anchor Staffing I was not contacted. I had expressed my willingness over and over to go back to work for DAP, and feel I was ignored. Anchor was also not too swift with coming up with assignments on a regular or timely basis.
I have learn how to get paint off windows and floors with out scraping them

Line Leader (Former Employee), Redford, MI – February 22, 2013
A typical day at work was ok, I guess, it was just to much drama there, more like a high school, supervisors and managers wasn't really on there jobs like they should have been (my opinion) .But overall I did learn more about the car parts and where they go, how to be packaged and palletize etc. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy car parts – more... like 20 inch wheels, The most enjoyable part was completing a job task and our breaks and the friendly handful amount of individuals that was there. – less
