Bonding Production Manager (Current Employee) – Wooster, OH – March 21, 2017
Good place to work. Some of the other employees who have been there for a long time make it hard for the next generation to come in because they don't want to properly teach you their jobs and allow you to do your job properly. They have a cafeteria, an academy and a day care. Luk's health benefits and health programs are very good though and I enjoy the job itself.
Steady work, dependable schedule, good pay, difficult work.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Valley City, OH – March 6, 2017
The environment can be stress enducing and the decisions made by management can leave a bad taste in your mouth. However if hired permanently, job security is high, work is fairly steady. Overtime opportunities are available. The pay is better than average and the benefits are solid. Great 401k plan. The work is hard in certain work cells and lead to work place conflicts. Very redundant. Breaks are short lived.
Solid pay. Steady schedule. Solid benefits.
Dificult work, random overtime requirements, stressful environment.
Controller (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – January 18, 2017
I enjoyed to the ~8 years that I was with Schaeffler. My daily duties were manageable and continuous learning which was exciting. There were many turnovers in the management team which sometimes made it difficult to build a good solid working group of managers but all in all I enjoyed each and every one of them that I was working with.
Highly professional team and state of the art technology
Engineer (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – December 21, 2016
Gained a lot of experience during my time at Schaeffler in Plant 3. Management will give the possibility to work outside the own responsibilities what is great to learn and see new processes etc. Collegues are great. I am still in contact with a lot of the staff and meet them for lunch from time to time.

Management is very political. Doesn't matter anymore about work ethic and having good attendance. Just have good attendance and be a good kiss asss and you will make it far. The bigger the company gets the more political and less productive it gets
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – July 11, 2016
Worst place ever to work!!! 1st shift don't work goof off all day and get away with doing nothing. Nothing gets addressed proprely people walk around cursing like it's acceptable. 2nd shift work the hardest, does all the work but still get picked at for "working" and getting the job done!! Persons that not supervisors like telling others what to do but want do the job themselves. Would not recommend this job to anybody!
Electrical Specialist (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – June 28, 2016
This company made the highest quality of industrial bearings and also made antilock break systems. The technology here helped me gain the highest caliber of technical experience that one could be awarder. I worked and was trained and mentored in everything from lasers, to sensors, programming plc's and drives. I enjoyed each day and worked hard to excel in job. I became one of the best in troubleshooting and finding mechanical issues and helped improve processes. Unfortunately a change in steel and a step in process they discontinued came back to hurt the company with a major recall.
I worked in heat treat for over a year they put me on weekends and forgot about me when I started there they used to give gift cards for working overtime or holidays. Now they don't do anything. They took our incentive away because no one would make rate. I always made rate but was never rewarded. Several group leads would get in your face and scream at you and management did NOTHING. Pay is good but not worth it. Would not recommend.
Weekends. No incentive. Management. Group leads horrible.
