Service Lube Technician (Current Employee), Chandler,AZ – December 7, 2013
Pros: free lunch every saturday, able to work on my own vehicle
Cons: very physical
On the average day I will be doing anywhere from 5-18 oil changes and tire rotations per day using various equipment and tools. Thus far i've learned to be more efficient and use my time wisely. The staff and co-workers are better than they have been in a very long time.
Technician (Former Employee), Smyrna, TN – December 6, 2013
8 hour work days at Nissan came easy to me, as I am young and quite capable at the job. I've learned a lot from the company from my time being there and my hand skills have only increased from the experience. My co-workers were all older than me, but I came to fit in well with them; my manager/supervisor was laid back for the most part, but knew when – more... to be serious when it came to work and getting things taken care of. Nothing at the job was hard to me, as I enjoyed the physical work I had to do. – less
installing (Former Employee), canton, ms – November 26, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: short breaks, long hours
a typical work day at Nissan was working at least 12 hours a day with an hour break but not a whole hour at one time, the hour is slit up to one 30min break and two 15mins breaks. Being at the workplace you learn a lot about installing and building things the co workers are willing to help and serious about team work. The hardest part about is moving – more... fast enough without getting your line behind and staying awake if you work overnight, besides that everyone is very nice and helpful and try to work as one. – less
Great people to work with, just felt like working in prison
Technician (Former Employee), Smyrna, TN – November 7, 2013
Pros: benefits, money was good
Cons: no time for family nor friends outside of the shift, weekends were ruined
not a bad place to work, just too strict and the hours were horrible especially friday night and saturday if need be to work saturday. Great people work hard and dont get rewarded for the great work only the nissan employees were the ones to get rewarded when us yates employees did the same work and put out better production, less defects and down time, – more... as well as better quality. ( This was even told to us by the Plant Managers in a quality meeting). Nissan is all about the money and cars, the employees just seem like a number to them. poorly treated and overworked. – less
Parts Consultant (Former Employee), TN – October 28, 2013
Pros: saturdays free lunches
Cons: slow on many days
I open up the parts department every morning and receipt parts and minor paperwork. In working here I've learned more in detail the systems and functions of an automobile. I've learned a different clientel of people and a different level of professionalism. My co-workers are all very nice, respectful and fun loving individuals. They are all service – more... driven. The hardest part of my job is diagnosing and trouble shooting whereas the most enjoyable part is the people. – less
Job was to order and deliver Nissan Export vehicles to all Export countries. This involved working with manufacturing, sales, the Export accounts, and the port personnel.
I learned the full logistics from a new model year vehicles to delivery to the end account.
Management was very good. They were open to all my ideas to make each deliverable.
Hardest – more... part of the job was to convince vehicle operations and the plant that the export market should come first and they should get all forcasted vehicles they wanted. This convincing worked when I explained the profit margin was much higher from an export market than a unit for the US market.
Most enjoyable part was the people I worked with as well as the friendships with the Export accounts and their cultures. – less
Very dynamic and professional fast paced environment
Central Control Room/Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee), Canton, MS – October 22, 2013
Pros: great salary, great benefits and vacation
Cons: poor micromanagers
I gained valuable on the job training and experience in a large corporate environment. There was never a dull day at work. Everyday you faced new and exciting challenges. You always had access to the latest technology with unlimited resources at your disposable. I got to work on a lot of innovating new projects that helped the company grow.

External Logistics Analyst (MINACT Contractor) (Current Employee), Canton, MS – September 30, 2013
Pros: you are on top of feet alot, there is a lot to do, time consumption, creativity
Cons: some managers fail to communicate and not keep responsibility at times, time consumption
A typical day starts off with a 7:15 am meeting that helps our managers get an update from us about what projects or issues we are currently working on. We then go to desk and take on our daily tasks. for me it was drawing layouts or collecting data for projects that required finding space for items that Supply Chain was responsible for.
I learned – more... to be aware and to be on my feet at all times. Being attentive was really needed because you would never know what might suddenly happen because it was a manufacturing plant.
There were times that I would have to take over someone else's duties or would have a sudden emergency assignment come up. This would be the most difficult part of the job because of the sudden timing of the assignment. There would also be lots to do.
My co-workers are generally supportive, they really took the time to teach me what I needed to know. Eventually when I caught on they liked some of my work and pushed me to work harder.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the creativity they allowed me to have with my work. They trusted me a lot with the assignments that were given and I really enjoyed that they allowed me to put in my ideas in a lot of things. – less
