Welder (Former Employee) – LaGrange, GA – September 6, 2016
Sewon America was not a terrible job but management made it worse than it had to be. Lower level workers did not receive bonuses while other kia suppliers received excellent compensation for their work.

Assembly Worker (Current Employee) – LaGrange, GA – April 13, 2016
The work hours are long and you're on your feet mostly. I learned how to identify cold welds/missing welds, how to operate some of the machinery using the remote and how to perform quality control inspections. The most enjoyable part about the job to me was my co-workers. The hardest part was the long hours.
Clerk (Current Employee) – LaGrange, GA – March 30, 2016
The workplace would be a lot better if the management team would act professionally and speak with people in a more professional manner. I have to make sure the attendance is done and completed. Turn in all paperwork at the end of the shift. Have to be creative to get the job done. Use time wisely. The hardest part of the job is dealing with management that does not like to resolve problems before an altercation of any kind happen. I love my co-workers as long as everyone is doing their part the shift will go by smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job is actually getting it done.
Slightly physically demanding. A great place to develop welding and leadership skills
Lead operator/Welder(MIG) (Former Employee) – LaGrange, GA – March 2, 2015
I'd arrive 30min prior to shift start to perform preventive maintenance on and inspect the spot and MIG welders before production began. Afterwards, inventory supplies and restock the line. Management was always available and highly knowledgeable and aware of all problems at all times. My co-workers were trained and proficient. The hardest part of the job were the 12-14hr days 7 day a week but it payed off in the end. On another side, what I enjoyed most about this job was being able to further hone my welding skills and being able to let my fellow workers know that I was available to help with any problem on the job at all times and if I couldn't then I'd refer them to someone who could. In the end, I learned to reset and program MIG/spot welders and robot arms.
great health benefits, dealer discounts and leadership. ratings, raises and advancements are on time.

Maintenance (Former Employee) – Lagrange,Ga – November 18, 2014
It is a okay job to get on your feet but as far as a carrer no.This place is very shady.They hold your bonus money and raises.The management don't care about employees.All they do is care about their own vision.People in manangement are very arrogant.It is a bunch of snitches running around.Also,It is too many people in charge.They don't want to pay people according to what they do.I took almost four years to get a 401k plan established.People dying left and right.They want to turn on the a.c.They only turn it on when ohsa comes into the building.People think it is the number one job in lagrange,ga.Surely it is not.They just want you to be your slave.It is more out here and also it jobs that pay way more then what the pay if you are in skilled profession.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – lagrange ga – July 22, 2013
loading a machine with car parts so the robots can weld the parts together...you have to work as a team if you want to get the production do you have to help each other out. Management was ok and my co workers they was some good co workers they don't mind doing team work. the hardest part is long long hours. Learning how to make car parts to send to Kia to make the whole car.
