Powertrain Assembly Process Engineer (Former Employee) – Decherd, TN – November 17, 2017
Nissan was a great place to start a career if you are wanting to learn automotive manufacturing and TPS. With being a large company it is a little more difficult to advance unless you are in good favor with the Senior Managers. It is a good ole boy culture where everyone is from the same area and have known each other. If you are not from the area or of the minority then it is a bit more difficult to make it there from my experience. Overall from a work experience standpoint it was a great start to my career.

The place is top heavy. Too many managers. You have managers that think they have power and really just overpaid lieges of the GM. Don't be a pretty woman you will get advances and positions if you willing to do favors.
On the sale side you can make money and lots of it.
I learned a lot about the automotive industry including telematic capable vehicles. I learned about how Nissan and dealers interact, many different systems that are developed by Nissan and sold to dealers, the process for manufacturing vehicles.
I worked with people that motivated me they were beautiful positive co-workers. I enjoyed providing excellent service to the customers. The manager ran our shop very well and organized. I would definitely recommend anyone to work at Nissan.

Automax Nissan was a great place to work with 2 locations. They management team was wonderful to work with as well. It was fast paced, every day was different and I really enjoyed building up my team and participating in their success. They had 2 locations and I was a part of both. Sadly there was a health emergency and both locations shut down. If the group purchased another location I would highly recommend. For a sales environment it was relatively stress free and allowed for you to have a great work and life balance.
Nissan was an unpleasant work environment during my two (2) years. The competitive dog-eat-dog relationship between operations and engineering was unhealthy at best. In many situations documentation of CYA was needed. When things don't go as planned fingers are pointed rather than coming together for a solution.
Nissan does not take into consideration an employees time in the way they conduct their business. There are times that we know there needs to be additional hours put in to get a job done. Nissan will actually have people work on holidays and during their paid time off.
Supervisor of Inventory Control (Current Employee) – Canton, MS – November 6, 2017
Nissan is a great place to work and there are many opportunities within the company. there are also many benefits. they have seasonal giveaways and many volunteer opportunities that are offered throughout the year. this is a great job to retire from. Many employees that have been here before me hae been with the company 10+ years. However, if you are looking to advance you must network properly in order to do so.
