Assembler/Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 10, 2018
I loved working at American Axle & Manufacturing because we were a diverse bunch that worked well together and always delivered quality parts. AAM gave fair wages and offered benefits that would provide for everyone's family.

The company is a joke. They go through managers like you change your underwear. There is No training for any position, you have to learn your job on your own. They never give a good review because their policy is to give you a average review and then never give you a raise. They promote managers that have no idea what they are doing. If your a friend of upper management you have a job or get promoted, everyone else looses. The company uses you then for no reason at all let's you go. No raises,ever and over work you for their benefit.

Production Associate (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 18, 2018
A long, lost, great time in my younger life where I went to work and made great pay with excellent benefits. Looked forward to going to work and making quality products with an excellent group of people. Opportunities like this are gone in America, shipped off to Mexico.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Three Rivers, MI – July 7, 2018
The pay isn't too bad. But you only get yearly raises and not every year. Management don't care about anything but rate. They say safety is their top priority but it isnt. The workplace is dirty. I could go on and on. It's just not a very good place to work unless you want the pay.
Computer Operator (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 5, 2018
American Axle was an EDS assignment in which I supported 9 manufacturing plants. I learned a lot, worked with a great group of people as well as multi level of management. The job was fast paced, always putting out fires and running to situations as first res-ponders to technical issues.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Three Rivers, MI – July 3, 2018
I was not here long, and left as a result of termination which came after an injury I sustained from my duties. They blamed a late day in regards to termination despite the good report I had with all managers and coworkers, as well as those in HR. I believe it was a move to not have to cover workmans comp. All politics aside, if I could work here again I would, so long as I was able to do the same job I was given going into the place.
DATA ENTRY CLERK (Former Employee) – Biscoe, NC – June 29, 2018
American Axle was overall a good job. Their management was just a little out of hand and they had little to no respect for their employees. If the management would have been better maybe individuals would last longer than they are.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Bluffton, IN – June 22, 2018
If you enjoy seeing your family, this is not the place for you. If you plan to become pregnant and keep your job without hassle, don’t do it. They claim to be equal employment opportunities and that they do not discriminate but that’s a lie. They will do what they can to get rid of pregnant women. The HR department does not know what they are doing or talking about. They’re a joke.
This job will keep you dirty and smelling horrible
Furnace Operator (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – June 22, 2018
Hard work from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. There are daily meetings that keep you informed of expectations. A lot of call ins every day, so expect to stay long hours and do work for 2-3 people.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Litchfield, MI – June 19, 2018
