This company does not allow you to have any work/life balance. I would have given it 2 stars but the webpage would not let me select only 2. You are given more work than any one person can handle with no assistance from upper management even when it is requested. This company does not provide you with the tools and resource to be successful in your – more... field. I have worked along with all employees from engineers to hourly employees working on the line and the poor work culture as well as the high stress level is consistent. The company is constantly fighting fires instead of investing in their employees to make improvements. – less
Productive place and a great place to meet new people.
Production Technician (Current Employee), Canton, MS – May 20, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: short breaks and all day standing on your feet
A typical day at Calsonic Kansei is very long and fast paced. I learn a lot about cars and trucks that I never knew. Working there is very eye opening because you are building actual cars and trucks and the smallest defect can affect the customer and the company. The thing that I enjoy most is seeing my co-workers that I have gotten close to and our – more... lasting friendships outside of the plant. Overall it is an ok job but not a permanent career choice. – less
Production Technician (Current Employee), Shelbyville, TN – April 4, 2014
-Very little predictability regarding work obligations -Very young and underdeveloped management - Co-workers are dependable - Toughest part of the job is the first year - Best part of the job is the good pay and benifits
Line Technician (Former Employee), Smyrna, TN – February 21, 2014
The work wasn't to bad, but it always seemed like there was some kind of drama or gossip going around. Employees seemed like they just wanted to get each other fired to climb the ladder and management didn't want to intervene.
Network Specialist II (Former Employee), Vicksburg, MS – December 26, 2013
My manager and his director did not disclose when I was hired that they were in the process of shutting down the site I was hired to provide support to. So after being employed for only three months the announcement was made company-wide. Compensation was dismal, and procurement of replacement hardware/software was hideously slow.
I would recommend – more... folks to stay away from this company. – less
Machine Operative (Former Employee), llanelli – May 30, 2013
Pros: working for a well established company
Cons: not permenant
My typical day would start with a briefing from a team leader to discuss the volume of work needed that day. I learned how to use multiple types of automatic machinery and also various types of hand builds. I was given a few opportunities to teach co-workers how to use machinery. I worked with a lot of different co-workers on different machinery. I – more... enjoyed working with others while also working independently as this proved I could work I different conditions. – less
Warehouse Operator/ Auditor (Former Employee), Sunderland – August 1, 2012
Pros: excellent co-workers
Cons: unexpected overtime
Everyday was different as you didn't know what the day was going to bring, but being surrounded by a confident and competant team failure didn't come into it, we would always succeed by going above and beyond what was expected of the team. Management are supportive and caring and are excellent in leading the company to succeed in all it's goals.
