manufacturing of heavy brakes.
Line Leader (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYMarch 29, 2016
Constantly seeking better ways to improve production. Some days can be very laid back and then some days can be very hectic. Communication seems to be an issue, but there is effort to improving that.
Pros
A lot of good people work there.
Cons
several heavy parts.

Employee (Current Employee) –  Huntington, INDecember 30, 2015
Some of the facilities have much dirty manual labor, they are the better paying positions. Other facilities, although fast-paced, are pretty clean.

For the most part, Middle-management appears to be clueless as they pass their workload down to the hourly help and there is A LOT of favoritism. Upper management appears to be content to have "Yes men" in the positions below them so things aren't likely to change anytime soon.

Most areas are "safe" to work in so no complaints there and most employees are good to work with but at times it is easy to see stress come out from heavy work loads (BUSY not physically "heavy").

Some perks are nice, company activities and bonus checks, but they are making it increasingly difficult to obtain some of these bonuses specifically by implementing a Kaizen program, where if you don't or can't come up with ideas to save the company money, you lose part or all of your bonus checks.
Pros
My area is pretty clean
Cons
Health Insurance not the greatest, and increasingly have to jump through hoops to get your bonus checks.

Specifications Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sidney, NYJanuary 8, 2015
A Specifications Analyst reviews customer prepared procurement specifications to determine if they can be met. A product or part is then chosen and if needed a test or quality inspection is called out. A cost analysis is generated to determine final selling price. This process involved several departments and is coordinated by the Specifications Analyst.
I learned the importance of good detailed information and instructions
Management was helpful and considerate.
Co-workers were good to work with and enjoyable company
Keeping track the cost analysis progress was sometimes hard
I really enjoyed meeting with those customers who occasionally visited our facility
Pros
Good benefits and retirement plan. Educational benefits available
Cons
Older Building

If you are looking for stability in long term employment this is the place.
Service tech (Former Employee) –  Huntington, INJune 18, 2012
Working in the packaging department there was no such thing as a typical day. One day you may be scheduled to do a sit down job but when you went in there was nothing on that job so you would get moved around to possibly picking or working a line or wherever you were needed. Which is typical of most jobs in the shipping and packaging departments. Having a good supervisor was the key to having a good day. The hardest part of the job was trying to deal with several different supervisors at one time, they all seemed to want something different and couldn't always come to a consensus on waht needed to be done first.
Pros
good benefits and lots of free lunch opportunities
Cons
second shift hours were difficult to deal with.
