Production Worker (Former Employee) – Lima, OH – March 10, 2016
Highly relaxed environment allowing for freedom when it comes to daily activities. Insufficient policies and high turnover all the way through to the corporate level. Little support from corporate office. Management seems to be detached from individual plants, while at the same time allowing corporate departments such as HR to control the facilities with little knowledge of the challenges they face.
Chemical Engineer (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – April 7, 2015
Typical day is long. I have two hours of excitement when I get to run my tests; one hour at the beginning and another towards the end of my shift. The rest of the day is spent watching the machine to ensure everything works properly. I am not allowed to touch or alter anything mechanical because I am non union salary. The union must do all the maintenance and repairs. This leads to a bit of conflict in the work place. I am also the only scientist on the crew. I very much miss having other scientists around me to talk to and learn from. The job itself is fairly easy. I felt I mastered my position in about one month. The hard part is dealing with the union and the boredom that comes from not being allowed to work to improve the machine.
Productive and fun workplace with great teammates.
Assembly Team Member (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 6, 2015
Showed up to my area and started working immediately. Learned how to work with multiple partners. Managers were friendly. Everyone else was friendly. Hardest part of the job was standing in one area all day. Most enjoyable part was being with co-workers.
Masker (Former Employee) – Cedar Falls, IA – August 6, 2014
This job was on moving parts on the line. I learned about many large parts of tractors. The hard part was masking all hte parts the came through. I enjoyed it when there were parts with very little to no masking.
