Are able to work a lot of hours and make a lot of money
Operator (Former Employee) –  Gaylord, MINovember 25, 2015
The reason why I left is because the company had change the hours worked for the shifts. I was not able to work the new hours. Other then that it is your typical factor. Work hard and never get recognition.

Hot and Busy
Operator (Former Employee) –  Rockford, TNOctober 1, 2015
A day at Cooper Standard is on your feet all day, working in a very hot environment on a machine. You can learn something new there everyday because you are sometimes put on different machines depending on which you are good at. Management could of been better. The co-workers for the most part are ok to work with. The hardest part would probably be the heat and standing for a full shift because my feet and back would be killing me.
Cons
Heat

Positive working environment
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Oscoda, MIMay 18, 2015
Cooper Standard was a bright positive place to work. I enjoyed the co-workers and the availability to make more money in less time. The "parts per hour" availability pushed you to work better and faster to get more money and help the company at the same time.

You work as a team at Cooper Standard. People often helped each other out and management had a positive attitude!
Pros
Paid breaks, good pay
Cons
forced weekend work, forced overtime

Great work environment
Associate Program Engineer (Current Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MISeptember 15, 2014
Amazing work environment along with great management that works along with you in order to obtain your best performance.
Flexible work schedule, ideally you should be in the office during usual office hours but working from home or out of office is easy to arrange.
