Very stressful job and it seems to be getting worse
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Muscle Shoals, ALSeptember 18, 2017
Been here for about 5 years

No consistency from day to day. One day parts are good. The next day, the same parts are bad, or parts are good on one shift, but bad the next shift. Makes no sense at all.

You come and get yelled at from management because of things that are out of your control. Management has very little clue about what's going on.

You're told to escalate problems, but when you do, nothing gets done, but if you don't escalate, you get yelled at.

Really don't know if work is scheduled for the weekend until Friday, which makes it very hard to make plans.

Culture is basically CYA (Cover your ***). Communication is terrible between shifts. You basically have to come in and figure out what's going on for yourself.

Turnover is high, more than half the people are looking for other jobs.

I dread coming into work everyday.

I understand automotive is a very stressful job, but management shouldn't be adding to that stress.

The benefits are decent though.

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Paris, ILSeptember 3, 2017
The conditions you work in are not great. You end up working so many hours that you don't even know who you are coming home to. If you have problems with other co workers or managers nothing is taken care of.

bad company to work for.
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Flora, ILAugust 2, 2017
bad comapany to work for exspecially nal flora, ill. unfair, favortism bad at this plant. management very poor, no clue what they are doing. supervisors to no clue, cant even run on a line, cant tell difference in a good part or bad part. lie to you straight to your face, human resource department all they do is sit and eat and drink, very rude ladies work in there at flora.uper management needs to be revamped bad, create jobs just so one can make more money, bring in people and give a management job and they have never worked in a automotive plant before but draw a hefty salary. lots of over time, most the time unnecesary over time due to poor management and the planners, planners out there have no clue either, if you do go to work at nal be a suck up and wrap management around your finger and you will go up the ladder. bottom line, dont work for this company.
Pros
healthcare not bad
Cons
short breaks, short lunch, lack of respect for employees.

Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Muscle Shoals, ALAugust 1, 2017
As a team leader it is your responsibility to ensure quality production for your shift. The standards that you are set to uphold may become overbearing at times but the pay is decent for the area of the workplace.

A job that pays good
Operator (Current Employee) –  Paris, IL 61944July 26, 2017
NAL for the most part is a good place to work. The job it self is is not bad pretty easy going but the upper management sometimes don't seem like they know what they are doing and don't treat people fairly depending on what department you are in. Benefits and pay are great.
Pros
Great pay and and benefits and 401k
Cons
2 ten minute breaks and 30 minute lunch

NAL is the best full time employer in the area.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Paris, ILJuly 16, 2017
The starting wages at NAL are more than competitive, they are the best around. Especially considering the low amount of physical work required for operators. NAL has great benefits and 401k programs. They promote from within and provide on-the--job training for all the hourly positions. The biggest issue with BALCONY is lack of internal communication.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Short breaks, high stress
