It is a good place to work for a while, then you realize the "competitive pay scale" is solely based on an agreement with the few surrounding companies in the area. If you fan out your search for similar jobs in other areas you will find they pay, on average, $3 more hourly. Raises from your start date up until your 18 months are fantastic, but after that you get nothing unless you have quality circles and suggestion, which you never have time for. Its a shame to find out your pay rate, after working yourself into exhaustion and harder than most of your team members, is the same as the Lazy Suzanne whom does nothing. The benefits package is unbeatable and they do great 401k match.
Team Leader/Trainer (Former Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – June 24, 2018
I started out at advics as a temp to hire. In 2013. I was hired full-time after 8 months of perfect attendance. After 2 years I advance to a floater which is one step under a team lead. And another year later I rose to a team leader, being the only female to accomplish thisin my department. When I came back from maternity leave which they worked with me greatly on my request. I work for 6 months and decided it was best to stay home with my son. I also got to travel for the company whenever we had a customer issue. That was definitely my favorite part being able to go to our customers and see how things worked and how our little brake became a car.
Production worker. This place is more concerned about quantity of parts produced rather than the quality of the parts.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – June 24, 2018
The hours fluctuate. Never know when your getting off of your shift and its mandatory weekends which you usually are told at the last minute that you have to work the following Saturday. This Company is focused on the quanity of parts being produced on the assembly lines rather than focusing on the quality of the parts being made.
The benefits are good
You end up feeling like your entire life is spent here.
QUALITY CONTROL TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Lebanon, OH – May 14, 2018
A typical day at work would be to troubleshoot bad data and find ways to improve the process so it would be easier to find or fix the out of print data. Coworkers are friendly and good teamwork through out. The hardest part of the job is finding new and different ways to inspect a part.
Combination line (Current Employee) – LaGrange, GA – March 16, 2018
I learned that if you don't work smart that you'll eventually play yourself out. We were tasked to make a certain number of break pads for ensure qualified parts. The hardest part of the job was being able to work hard labor for 12 hrs with minimal breaks.
Lead Operator/Lead Trainer (Current Employee) – Lebanon, OH – January 20, 2018
my day at Advics consist of making sure every aspect of my machine lines are running to quality standards and operators are performing at a desired hourly and daily performance level. I have learned how to deal with the different personalities in the work place and use that to create an enjoyable working environment for everyone. I fix most of my machine issues daily. I do all tool changes and adjustments to machines to ensure our product is running within customer tolerances. It is a very physically demanding job. The supervisors stay in the office and only come out 2 times per day to do a patrol and if there is a quality problem on the floor. Raises are not given on performance, they are given if the supervisor feels like putting in the paperwork with no regards to the employee and their work habits. The HR department allows this to happen. the hardest part of the job was the company not following their own policies. there is no competitive pay scale, everyone gets the same raise no matter if you work hard or do nothing all day. I work very hard on a daily basis and get passed up for promotions by others that are slackers. the most enjoyable part was working on the equipment and the fast pace of the job.
12 hr work schedule with days off during the week and every other weekend
management role in their own company. No careing about their employees.
If you need a job for money its a good place. If you can't randomly work over when they tell you last mintue for 4 more hrs, well goodluck your probably after a few times fired. If you have a.great excuse why you weren't there or couldn't stay, oh well if you didn't have the time. They were good about breaks though.
last mintue earning that your forced to stay no matter what
Operator (Current Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – July 31, 2017
I have worked for this company 2 years and I just feel like I need a change. I have great benefits. But I would love to work somewhere that has opportunities to grow. And have a way to make more money. I have worked Monday thru Friday and sometimes Saturdays. So I love the hours just could really use a pay upgrade and a brighter future somewhere to build and retire from.
