Poor management
CNC Mill Set Up Operator (Former Employee) –  Wheeling, ILAugust 9, 2018
Workers that have been there more than ten years didn't have to do anything. Newer employees has to do most extra work. Not allowed to talk to management about safety issues, supposed to go to employee working unsafe which led to conflict between employees. Very poor management. Although had meetings on safety management did not care. Refused to fix things brought up years ago. Manager walked through liquid on floor and did not slip so was not considered an unsafe act. Even though there were 2 recent lost time accidents because of slipping on liquid on floor.

It's home away from home
Employee (Current Employee) –  Mount Juliet, TNJuly 1, 2018
This is a nice place to work! My team really feels like a team. We know about each other and our families. I don't know the people in the other departments as well, but that is to be expected. The management team is improving and getting better and better each day. You can feel the moral in the plant is really changing. It's a new plant that had some growing pains but it is overall, a great group of people working hard to get the job done.

Manufacturing Team Member (Current Employee) –  Mt. Juliet, TNJanuary 11, 2018
Really could be a better place if there weren't family ties, not all are treated equal, a lot of coworkers standing around on there cell phones, etc. Not a place where all are treated equal. Most ethnic backgrounds stand around & place the system

Global Materials Manager (Current Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIOctober 25, 2017
Many problems without many solutions. The organization struggles with extremely high turnover and a lack of talent at key positions. There is not a clear or consistent message or leadership to make the required changes.

Has lots of potential.
Manufacturing Engineering, Programming Leader (Former Employee) –  Mount Juliet, TNMarch 27, 2017
Great products, started out as a great opportunity. Management did all they could to kill moral and made it difficult to meet production demands with decisions not to move equipment that was to be replaced prior to having the replacement machines ready.

Department was one of the best teams I have ever worked with.

Ok place
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Mount Juliet, TNMarch 12, 2017
Decent place to work if you don't have to deal with management!!! They know nothing from HR to the production management. They need experience on people skills as well as knowing more about the job in detail. Other than that it's a OK place.
Pros
Benefits, pay is ok
Cons
Poor management
