Storage Administrator (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 15, 2018
The replacement of staff with contractors creates a difficult to manage environment along with cross boundaries cooperation. In fighting between engineers is common placed with only a few individuals working as a team.
Warehouse (Former Employee) – Lemont, IL – May 14, 2018
Daimler AG had excellent communication between Management and employees. Typical days, including the size of our workload for that day, was met with all of us knowing we will get our jobs done, goals met in a safe and timely manner to make our customers satisfied. The culture at Daimler felt like a big family. We always helped and advised each other when our workload for the day was very high. The hardest part of my previous job was that our place outgrew itself after being in Wood Dale for over 30 years and had to move into two bigger plants that were out of state. The most enjoyable moments were when we all worked hard and safe together to meet our goals and customers satisfied daily, leaving the place knowing that even a rough day was never something we couldn't get through.
Free luncheons with extended breaks and gain sharing quarterly.
Uptime Pro Application Support (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 24, 2018
I loved working for this place, great work - home life balance. Decent compensation. However, since the majority of their employees are contractors, there is a high turn over rate. Some people come and go like it's a revolving door, which works for some people but not for most.
Close to several hiking trails and parks, diverse workplace, beautiful location
Lack of Parking, Difficult to access by public transit, high turn over rate, lack of career advancement
Clean and relatively comfortable work environment.
Level 2 Technician (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 17, 2018
A typical day at work was monotonous. You knew what you had to do and how to do it. I learned to work in a team environment. Management was excellent. There was nothing hard about the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with my teammates.
Management has no desire to put out a quality product only to turn out products as fast as they can which leads to consumer blow-back and layoffs. Leader ship in non-existent, the company operated on the philosophy that good workers should pick up the slack of those who work slow or not at all instead of disciplining them.
good pay, plenty of time off, good benefits
horrible management and leadership, union is worthless, if youre a good worker you're required to work harder to pick up the slack of lazy workers
Supervisor Security Operations, (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – March 18, 2018
Daimler is a great company, but folks rarely ever leave causing a sever problem in that there are few if any new positions to move into. I love the vacation policy and my coworkers. The only downside is that there are so many folks who stay there that finding new opportunities is hard

Distribution Center Supervisor (Current Employee) – Wood Dale, IL 60191 – March 14, 2018
Distribution center servicing multiple dealerships daily. Supervise 25-35 team members give performance reviews. Culture was overall good. It was a union facility but pretty good relationship between mgnt and bargaining unit representation. Hard work performed by both management and union members to get it that way.
Daimler is a good company to work for. Long hours but pay and benefits are comensurate
Distribution Center Supervisor (Current Employee) – Wood Dale, IL 60191 – March 9, 2018
Distribution Center. Typical warehouse setting. Union shop. Good solid group of colleagues horizontally. Enjoyable people all the way around. In the past there has not been a lot of support from upper management however this has been changing there has been more effort on development of the middle management and continuing down to team members.
Solid place to work Great Pay and Benefits
Longer hours. Due to remote location (not corporate) not much opportunity to advance.
