Hot Stamp Operator (Current Employee) –  Goshen, INSeptember 18, 2017
The temps need to be paid more per hour, as they generally work 7 days. Over all the environment was good, management was good to work with. Advancements seem to go through, although many people said they didn't get raises. Great benifits, paid vacations after hire in.
Pros
good money
Cons
lots of over time

Unsafe environment
Group Leader/Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Goshen, INSeptember 11, 2017
Benteler was lacking in safety prevention. Employees were frequently being hurt due to not enough light curtains and safety precautions. Recently, an operator even lost a finger in a press. Management at the time was lacking in experience and was brought in by a new plant manager, even though they were under qualified. It is a required 6 days a week every week, and at times 7 days a week.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Unsafe, inexperienced management, too much OT

Fair Place to Work
Projects (Current Employee) –  MichiganJuly 15, 2017
Not a terrible place to work, but it can get a little bland day-to-day. There are issues with the management, as it's pretty much a revolving door.

Good people, + good pay, could be a lot worse.

Lots of corrective actions to be put in place due to poor PM on machine
Senior Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Goshen, INJuly 7, 2017
Lots of follow up to determine if permanent corrective actions are still in place and being followed.

Lots of machine failures because maintenance cannot keep up with equipment failures, PM is not being followed on regular basis. Old dies and lots of down time.

Lots of out sourcing to make schedules work.
Pros
Management is working hard to correct issues
Cons
Hard to find good workers to fill new position.

Can get hot there sometimes but also hard when needing to keep up with production. Gotta stay focused and make sure things are done right and that parts are well established and ready to ship.
