Assembly Technician (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – March 25, 2014
Working for Dana was the best work experience for me. I enjoyed working in a team effort atmosphere with great leaders. Dana provided great benefits for my family and I. Although the lay-off has been hard for my wife and I, I appreciate the help and transition Dana offered before the actual lay-off.
Good Health Care, Clean Facility and great leaders
Welder/Assembler (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – October 18, 2017
Very long hours, often having less than eight hours until the next shift. Unable to have days off due to production efforts. The company closed its doors and laid off the newest employees while offering severance pay to others.

It was a good place to work until the factory closed and I lost my job. I started out on the production floor and advanced myself to the Human Resources dept before the factory closed. Great nplace to work plenty of chances for advancement,

Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – August 26, 2017
Dana pay scale was great. The environment and upper management was very poor. The most diappointing issue was when it came to ending contract employees instead of being direct they rather send a text over the company phone then ask for their equipment back. Very rude in nature and it shows the lack of professionalism by upper management.
Layed back work enviorment but have numbers to reach each day.
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – August 6, 2017
Dana was a great place to work for many different reasons but one of them is the great benefits they offer once hired in. One downfall about working at Dana was that as a temp they could mandate you, work you 12hr shifts and also weekends.
Assembly and Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – July 13, 2017
I ran a lot of different machines and we rotated every day. I learned a lot and enjoyed doing different things everyday. The people were very friendly and we had a lot of fun too. Most of the supervisors were very good and helped a lot in training and learning.
Even though it was air conditioned, it was still hot
PRESS OPERATOR/ CHEMICAL COMPOUNDER (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 13, 2017
A typical day at work would be running a press, mixing chemicals and receiving products. I learned a lot about running a variety of presses , mixing chemicals and environmental details. Most of management was very understanding and helpful for the majority of the years. The hardest part of the job was the dirty workplace due to the product being made and standing on cement floors all day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendship made.
Assembly Tech (Former Employee) – Dry Ridge, KY – July 13, 2017
I do not recommend anyone with kids to work here. it 12 hours a day 6 to 7 days a week. the management is very poorly handled. Even if you run out of parts and they don't know when they are coming in, you have to stand around during your shift even if it means standing around the rest of your shift instead of going home.
Global Lead Program Manager (Former Employee) – Toledo, OH – July 4, 2017
The company has changed since I worked there. The bankruptcy completely changed the management so I really cannot comment on the current state. Most of my colleges were all let go or choose to move on.
It was a nice place to work while I was there. The office was relatively easy to get to and get around in, despite being very large. Good people who were pretty understanding when it comes to hours. I'd typically get in a few hours of overtime each week and was able to take some time off to be somewhere early on a work day. I ended up learning a lot while I was there.
The place got pretty toasty and there was no cell service.
Applications Engineer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – May 30, 2017
Over my 20+ year career I've worked at several different companies, mostly automotive and Dana (formerly Long Manufacturing) has to be my favorite place to work. It's the people and the culture that make it so good, also having autonomy allows you to flourish. If you have a family and this aspect of life balance is important to you, Dana is accepting of this.
Their products are evolving to adapt to the future market, i.e. cooling for electric cars, hybrid and electronics cooling. They still spend a generous amount on R&D, which paves the way for the future.
You can make a difference in this company, you have influence, people will listen to your ideas and in most cases, they get implemented.
