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.
A typical day at work ,clock in,make sure my employees,are on time,Get my paperwork ready,an ensure work is done to the satisfaction of the consumer.I learned to analyze an look at products system an materials to make sure there are no defects. I also learn management make sure that it is made to company standards. Analysts work in many different fields,transportation. Ensuring quality products leave the manufacturer on the way to consumers.An provide confidence that the quality requirements will be fulfilled.
Loved working for the company.. I learned a lot as and welder. I really hate that the company moved and it provided jobs for the surrounding area for as pay..if they ever come back to the area i would be the first in line.
Quality Support Technician (Former Employee) – Elizabethtown, KY – February 17, 2017
Dana Corporation provided me with a good place of employment for almost 6 years. Their wages were very competitive and they hire technical positions from within and promote from within. They also had a good benefit package. The only negative thing I have to say is that they had a massive lay off when Dana Corp filed bankruptcy.
During our shifts we manage to get a lot more done than what it may seem like. We often were required to help with our facilities department to on some projects throughout the building. Some projects may have included office moves and furniture moves throughout the office. This made for a very unexpected day and we were never not busy. The hardest part of the job though was sometimes keeping up with the amount of tasks we had in a day or week. With that being said this also was the most enjoyable because it allowed us to create relationships with some of the higher up executives in the company.
While working, you learn a lot about what the company does as a whole.
You do have a lot of very busy days which makes it very hard to complete every day tasks.

Loved the job but to inconsistent with the shift hours. It was very easy and some what tedious. It was great money. Long hours so little time for a family. Great benefits not enough sick time or emergency time. Good people to work with but a company that seemed to care less about advancing their employees or motivating them to strive for better.

I would provide superior communication skills, and they are helpful in facilitating interaction among staff and managers. A morning may start with advising a customer service team on improving telephone skills. Courtesy and patience are qualities that favorably influence customers, and a representative can make a good impression by using them. Making notes to follow up on improvements is usually the last step in advisory meetings.
Working with professionals and easy to ask questions to superiors
Short breaks, long hours, long distance to drive to office.
This was by far the greatest place to work. Always very clear as to what was expected each day. Excellent communication from management to everyone. Great co-workers. It was a shame when the plant closed.
