Scapegoat (Former Employee) – Cranston, RI – February 16, 2016
Worked there for around 3 years. Was consistently bullied by upper management and human resources. Was paid less than an assistant manager at a dollar store makes. There were days where I would have to talk myself down from quitting right then and there and walking out the door. I went above and beyond and did everything I could with the tools given, but nothing was ever good enough for them. I would have meetings with my manager who showed sympathy because he saw what was going on and understood I was having a hard time dealing with how I was treated, despite the effort I put in, and ask me not to quit or give up because I was needed at that point in time. At least 2 or 3 people were either fired or quit a month, which is frustrating on a team and productivity level. Working there was like being in high school. Everyone was disgruntled minus maybe the parts department, those guys were absolutely kind and good to work with. And upper management/HR went parading around the place with a chip on their shoulders treating everyone like trash. If you are a newcomer looking for job experience and barely enough of a paycheck a month to pay rent on an apartment, go ahead and apply. or if you know the HR manager outside of a work environment, the bias and favoritism was glaringly obvious, and disgusting. If you are looking for a career, to be treated as if you make a difference and mean something to the company, and a decent wage, do not bother.
Yushin America is a great starting point for anyone seeking a career in Electrical - Mechanical Engineering but advancing in the company is slow.

Yushin America, Inc. was not a bad place to work, but Monday and Friday were by far the busiest. For those individuals who are seeking a career that is technically demanding in the field of Robotics and Automation then Yushin America is a great place to start.
As for my co-workers they were some of the hardest working people I've ever met. My average work week was 45 hours, but overtime was often allowed if projects were falling behind schedule.
Since I had a real passion for Robotics and Automation I worked with the engineers and technicians on many projects and from them I learned a great deal about Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and negotiating with suppliers.
The hardest part of the job "project wise" was working under really tight time constraints.
As for the management team at Yushin their credo was "Lead By Example"; work hard, lend a hand if a project is falling behind, and as project leader the responsibility is mine. This mindset has stayed with me throughout my professional career.
As for advancements within the company the prospect are not as good as they should have been.
i have yet to find a company that lives and breaths "teamwork" like yushin america.
employee wages always reflected less than industry standards.
