Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Alabama – June 14, 2016
Could be a great facility if they would provide stability. In my 6 years there I worked under 9 different plant managers. Each had their own direction and none of them stayed long enough to provide a clear path before the next one came on board. The lower and front line management team was outstanding in the way they would try to change the culture of the plant with each new plant manager. They worked 4 shifts,12 hour per days 7 days a week and that did provide ample time off, You never work more than 3 days in a row and had every other weekend off. A very demanding place to work as a production supervisor, but I met some great people and despite any short comings I was sorry to have been downsized and wish Nemak the best.
Small factory under a worldwide company. Needs to get on board with the bigger scale of policies and expectations.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – February 4, 2016
Too many inner circles among employees with different lengths of employment. Not enough team work and too much playing around while trying to be a professional work place. It felt like high school all over again.
Great break schedule and fabolous IMMEDIATE supervisors.
Too many rat packs among employees who are supposed to be working as a team.
Maintenance Technician IV (Former Employee) – Glasgow, KY – November 21, 2015
I enjoy a challenging environment as always because I am a fixer. Here I worked 36 days straight 10 hours a day. I seldom gota chance to sit and take a 5 minute break. There was no training regiment in place at all. It is also the dirtiest factory I have ever been in.

Diecaster/General Production (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – May 14, 2015
a typical day at work you walk in grab all your supplies so you don't have to leave your machine during you shift other than breaks, go to your machine and start processing and trimming parts to be shipped to the company. The best part of the job is that it is fast paced, the worst part to the job is you get dirty and have a lot of heavy lifting.
Inspector (Current Employee) – Brookpark, OH – April 16, 2015
I come into work and sweep out the area as everyone gets into place to start the day. We all take this job very seriously. Communication and working together is very important. We all look out and help each other when needed. Our management team is great. They are hands on and very helpful with good attitudes. Management tells us what the goal is for the day and any issues we need to look out for. The hardest part of the job is that it's non stop. We must be focused and alert at all times. Most enjoyable part of this job is working with positive people who care about the quality of the product we are producing for Ford Motor Company.
Knowing I am a part of assembling the number one truck in the world.

Ok place, many inconsistencies and unprofessional flaws.
General Production (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – November 9, 2012
Depending on your job and supervisor it can be a great place to work or a terrible one. The best way to get by there is to be quiet, stay on your toes, and accept anything and everything. How you are treated depends on the Supervisor's mood and overall thoughts on you. I have learned that hard work can pay off and you may eventually be recognized for it, while most goes unnoticed and things out of your control can be demanded and even blamed on you. There is a big "just get it done" attitude there. I have met many nice and hard-working people there and know more about how others deal with work situations. The company has good potential, just has many flaws to be changed.
