Supervisor/Line Leader (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 31, 2015
While working for Dana in Elizabethtown KY and Louisville KY, I got to meet many different people and had a blast. I got to see all sides of the company and came to understand the many aspects of the operations.
Learned team leader skills as a result of working here i was responsible for 12-14 employees at a time. Downside was had to work with a new supervisor roughly every mouth. Machines where extremely old and in a state of disrepair. Hardest part was working with new supervisors and helping them learn how to work in a team environment, they usually hired without regard to experience.
good pay, and benifets
No one seems to know what the goals are for a set time, managment passes blame to eachother in order to keep their jobs, turnover rate in management is extreamly high
Company Party's, Great Management, employee awards

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Glasgow, KY – March 11, 2015
We did architectural woodworking, our main customer was Dillards. We did alot of other stores but Dillards was our main customers. We over saw the customers orders from design to installation at the job site. Not everything was the same always something different to work on whether it was a new showcase design or remolding a store. Most difficult part of the job was language barrier, we employed Bosnians, Russians, Vietnamese, Cambodian's, people from all over the world and at the same time it may have made it difficult at times but also rewarding to be able to bring that many different cultures together to work for one common cause. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact I was teaching people a skilled trade whether it was reading blueprints runnning table sawsm assemblng fixtures, laminating or painting, the people were learning a skilled trade they could take out into the real world. Hardest part was when we had to close the plant, 911 got us, work was not there after 911 and we did not have the resources to stay in business.
skilled trade and always something different to work on
I can not thing of any, most enjoyable job I have ever had
Dana Corporation, especially the hydraulics parts division were staffed by innovative management and dedicated employees. Hydraulics was sold during the bankruptcy of the Parent to a company from the Peoples Republic of China. All employees either quit or retired.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Bristol, VA – September 26, 2014
A typical day working with part and tools. I learned various things and operated different machines. Management was helpful and understanding, Coworkers helped me learn the machines and how to operate them safely. The hardest part nothing comes to mind. The most enjoyable part operating machines and putting parts together.

bad management overall if you want to make money you will but you will but never will have time to spend it. Supervisors are not to bright because the turnover rate is high. union leadership is terrible.
Operational Analyst (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – September 16, 2014
Run like the wind if you ever get offered a job with the Dana Corporation. The plant in Auburn Hills was where I once worked. That particular plant is very poorly ran. Management there doesn't have a clue what they are doing. Management there spend the time back stabbing each other and wondering what the next person is doing instead of working together for the better cause of production. There is a major disconnect between plant management and the workers on the plant floor. I never gotten any support from management and never got any formal training for the job I was hired to do. They DO NOT offer any overtime as a salary employee and you work long hours. Management is a revolving door. If the Dana Corporation ever call you, hang up! Don't waste your time with them.
The pay was decent, great working relationship with the folks that work on the plant floor.
Lack of help from plant management. Lack of communication from plant management.
Dana was a very hard job that taught me a lot about running different kinds of machines, driving a fork truck, and how to work on the machines.
Factory worker (Former Employee) – Syracuse, IN – September 9, 2014
I enjoyed the learning experiences I received from Dana Spicer Axle with working with machines that intimidated me at the beginning, from them being so large, but I found out they were not all that bad. I lifted parts that weighed 35 to 48 pounds several times per 8 hour shift. I learned how to spot weld and run a robotic welder, laythe machines, mills, and drill machines. We had to change our own tooling on the machines, and that was the best part of my job, learning how. The hardest part was the heavy lifting without having hoists to help. I always got along with my co-workers. There are those that no matter what, you have your differences, but we still worked well together to perform our job expectations that were required of us.
Bracket welder (Current Employee) – Humboldt,TN – September 3, 2014
Do not apply for this job unless you have no life or family. If you like working 8 to 12 hour days 7 days a week with maybe 2 days a month off then this is the job for you. If you like being lied to and secrets kept from you then this is the job for you. If you like not knowing when your shift starts or ends until the day of then this is the job for you. Be prepared to live in Dana when applying for this job.
