Okay place to get started as an Engineer
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Adrian, MIDecember 5, 2017
Inteva was an okay place to work. Its a very busy, fast paced environment. You could easily get booked for three meetings at the same time, and you are expected to be in all three meetings at different locations throughout the plant.

If you don't do your job correctly or quick enough, you will be barked at by upper management.

They have a terrible culture at the plant. They have experienced managers that think they can talk to people in which ever way that they please.

I've seen senior managers get up in a meeting completely interrupt the person presenting and degraded the presenter and other employees (new engineers, lower level engineers) in front of peers.

It was an interesting experience and good place to learn, but it was not the environment that I would prefer to work in.
Pros
benefits
Cons
long hours, poor culture, managment

Inteva was very unorganized and poorly managed. They don't care about employees and only care about meeting numbers. Team members were not the number one priority as they state.

Very unorganized and poorly managed

hard working people can make a good start and move up the ladder here. the production line jobs are simple. you get to work closely with people. the management staff can sometimes leave more to be desired.

Not hard but not fun
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Gadsden, ALJuly 21, 2017
A day a work consists of doing the same the over and over although you can rotate.

Management is difficult depending on shifts because the way you do something on your shift is going to be different on the other shifts when they are all supposed to be the same
Pros
They dont pay much but you are allowed all the overtime you want
Cons
short breaks

Drama
Mods (Current Employee) –  Gadsden, ALDecember 20, 2016
The scheduling is problematic, you have a shift schedule but they will not let you know if you have to come in early or work overtime until fifteen minutes before the end of your current shift. You cant plan anything. I have learned way too much about people's personal lives and am amazed at the little groups that are formed with the co-workers. There is a tight group of girls in the front office that talk about everyone else in the place. Who sleeps with who, who has std's, etc. They talk about everyone and it gets spread around and causes issues with people in the back and its hard to get work done. Management doesn't seem to care, so it runs rampant, even as far as outside of 1st shift. The hardest part of the job is the scheduling and dealing with the chatter. The enjoyable part is keep my head down and just working. I need the money or I would be out of here.
Pros
consistent pay and work
Cons
drama and spread of peoples private lives throughout the workplace

Production Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cottondale, ALDecember 16, 2016
You're not allowed to miss more than 2 days during your first 90 days on the job. They fired me even thought i had an excuse from the doctor for the week. (I was in a car accident)... They could care less about the well being of their workers.

Assembler (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MONovember 16, 2016
Could be a better environment if people were held accountable. Management would let employees get away with lots of offenses and this put stress on the ability to meet goals.
