Assembly Worker/Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Cheraw, SCNovember 24, 2017
You have to be a team player. Quality over quantity is big there. You have to remember that you represent the company. You are a big asset to the company because without you, the work couldn't get out.
Pros
Good food, Great benefits
Cons
Lack of communication

Grunt (Current Employee) –  Danbury, CTNovember 15, 2017
The work environment is awful. People are miserable and seem stuck there. The management pushes lower management and employees to push out products whether the products are made correctly or not. They claim to be all about quality, but it's been made obvious it's all about the dollar and not delivering the highest quality bearings possible. I feel bad for the customers and employees.

Stressful place
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCAugust 18, 2017
Employees are required to work an excessive amount of overtime. If you enjoy working overtime this is the place for you. Just know that everyone needs time off for family. This company did not seem to take that into consideration.
The plant manager has changed so things may be different.
Pros
lots of overtime
Cons

Innovative and Challenging work at Schaeffler
Product Development Engineer (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIJuly 8, 2017
Working at Schaeffler Group so far has been alright. A typical day at work is mostly answering email, over looking drawings, performing measurements on parts or testing parts.

Management is very experienced but doesn't have the time to properly train our growing young team which results in slow productivity.

The workplace culture is very diverse with people in the office from South Korea, Canada, India, Iran, Brazil, and of course the USA. Everyone speaks English and we learn different work styles and techniques working with multiple cultures and ethnicity.

The hardest part of the job is knowing what to work on next, and making hard decisions on projects if management isn't around to provide guidance, which is part of the training.

The most enjoyable part of the job is gaining hands on exposure to different types of automotive parts and gaining an understanding of how the automotive vehicle works.
Pros
Lenient Management
Cons
Lack of guidance for training
