DENSO's multi-million dollar industry in Battle Creek is made at the expense of hard-working individuals seeking to put their talents and dedication to work. Unfortunately, DENSO management creates an atmosphere in which these individuals are seen as a number and not an individual, and are treated as such. Although pay is good, it doesn't compensate for the maltreatment and lack of compassion that DENSO shows toward its employees. Work/life balance is nonexistent. In short, if it doesn't benefit DENSO and doesn't affect this corporation's image, it doesn't matter. Policies are put in place to defend their oppressive and, oftentimes, illegal workplace practices. These policies can be applied and misconstrued any way at any time not to protect the company, but to cover the shortcomings of their questionable practice. Complaints fall on deaf ears and are usually followed by reprimand and even loss of employment. DENSO's motto is "Safety and Quality First". Perhaps they should put their employees first because without them, there is no DENSO and no multi-million dollar industry.
