Quality engineer (Former Employee), Detroit miMarch 16, 2014
Pros: pay check
Cons: environment
I worked there for several years before leaving recently. The company is in very bad shape. They are shedding employees. Everyone who works there is working long hours and morale is low. In the last year I was there probably the most stressful year of my life. I would not take a job there. This company may not be around much longer

Good benefits and compensation
Machine Operator (Former Employee), West Union, IADecember 1, 2013
Pros: the co-workers were nice.
Cons: the work was repetitive and hard on your body
Assembled RV component parts and Deck hinges for Ford Motor Co. I learned about quality control and how to maintain it. Management were helpful in assisting in the completion of assembled parts. The co-workers were very helpful. The hardest part of the job was the repetitive motion and having to stand the entire shift. The co-workers were fun to work – more... with – less

Very repetitive place to work but good co-workers.
Assembler (Former Employee), Stockton, ILAugust 14, 2013
Worked as a robotic welder. Check each part to make sure welds were good, and if they weren't I would have to grind them down and spot weld them. Made sure all the parts were in spec and functioned properly. Sorted out parts that were bad out of bins and put them seperate and make rejection tags of why they were bad. Assemblied parts on assembly lines. – more... Just the laying off and only being able to work 3 or 4 days sometime was a bit but did enjoy the overtime when they had it. – less

I had met really nice co-workers. The factory itself is unorganized due to the fact it's the automotive industry.
assebly line/ paint line (Former Employee), Stockton, CAMay 14, 2013
Pros: it was nice getting to know different people, it was meeting a second family because you worked 10 hours and, saw these people more than your family so, you had to get along some how.
Cons: this place would be a good place to work but, you don't know what is going to happen day to day due to the economy. it could be fine and, then sorry we got to lay you off again. i got permenatly laid-off so, i'm not too thrilled with this company. while others got their jobs back but, i didn't even get called back.
The jobs I had I did like. But, I had felt the management didn't know what they were doing. The situation with that that was probably because, it is the automotive industry and, one month there would be all types of production and, hours. The next month there would be hardly any then they would have to lay-off people.

Laborer (Former Employee), Fremont, MIMarch 22, 2013
Pros: the cafeteria was always clean and there was always a place to sit.
A typical day at work is fast pace. I learned how to put shifters together and run welder's. The management was good. My co-workers was nice people. The hardest part of the job was the Monte Carlo welder. The most enjoyable part of the job was you always have something to do when your machine breaks down there is always another one to go to.

Senior End User Support Analyst II (Current Employee), Fremont, MIAugust 27, 2012
Pros: decent pay (meets market), somewhat challenging, very little micro-managing
Cons: tight fisted on moneis allocated for improved infrastructure

Productive workplace with unsteady work hours
Assembly Line Operator (Current Employee), Milan, TNJune 20, 2012
Pros: made friends
Cons: early work hours
A typical work day at Dura could begin between 4-6, depending on the work schedule. I learned how to read blueprints, properly check park brake cables and train others if needed. Having to be at work at 4am would be the hardest part of the job, along with having to stand on concrete from 9-11 hours/day.
