Great pay and benefits

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working as a Prototype-testing Technician in the Product Development (R&D Lab) Department was overall a great experience for which I will be ever thankful to both of the Lab Managers to whom I had the prividlidge of working for. It was a job where you were ever learning something new on a daily basis. The pay rate and benifts were outstanding.

Pros

Great pay and annual raises and some of the best health insurance out there.

Cons

Horrible new Engineering manager, no real feeling of job security, HR was the worst I'd ever seen.

Great Benefits

Benefits and pay are good. Job is stressful due to lack of staff. If they hired enough staff it would be fine, but they put too many accounts on one person and it’s too much.

Pros

Pay & benefits

Cons

They need to hire more people

Gets rid of you before you can get into the union

This company really isn't worth joining. The job is pretty easy it usually involves sitting at a spot welder that puts inserts on hose clamps. This used to be one of the best places to work in the area but really went downhill when they were bought by the norma group. The company will use you till you are no longer needed and will most likely will be let go before your time to join the union comes up. Management will never be seen unless you aren't getting your numbers.

Pros

Get to sit for most of the job

Cons

Management

Opportunities not for everyone. I was bless to have gotten this job.

Don't work there anymore. Release from duties right before Thanksgiving. Nothing else to say at this moment. I was thankful for the opportunity. My job was easy not hard. I pick up on several skills at a machine operator. Welding packaging etc. Thank you!

I enjoyed working with other people. They were willing to help at anytime and train if necessary

I enjoyed working at Norma Group. Especially with the people that worked there. I learned many things. Everyone was willing to help when needed. Management was polite and always looking to better the company.

Supervision and time off

One of the supervisors is very rude , inconsiderate , shows favoritism, talk to you like a child. The mandatory overtime was excessive , hardly any time off.

Run the other way! Don't waste your time. Please run!

I was told during the interview, I would receive a bonus that consisted of 10% of my annual salary. That was a lie. Norma Group utilizes an archaic database/system which was popular in the 1980's. They use a DOS based system that has surpassed their needs and refuse to change. I was screamed at by the Supply Chain Manager for no good reason. HR approached me about the situation because other people complained about his tantrum. I told HR the environment I was currently working in was hostile and there is a legality to this issue right now. Wouldn't you know it, I was "laid off" no more than 2 months later. The reason I was given: "The economy is very bad right now." They would rather keep the aggressor and punish the victim to cover their backsides. From what I was told, the supply chain manager (you know, the one that was acting like a toddler) attends anger management classes and is on medication. Most of the people there were very rude and angry all of the time. These were only a handful of examples. I could fill a book with the information I have for you. This place is headed for disaster. Even the Titanic had a band!

Pros

Pay

The company was good to work for, but it closes its doors to the workers in Michigan

Norma was a good company to work for. However currently they experience a significant workforce reduction due to relocation of MI-based facility. The company doesn't hire in MI, in contrary a lot of my coworkers lost jobs along with myself.

Pros

Was a good place to work for

Cons

Closing down their facility in MI

Run the other way, if you can

Pay and benefits are great. Leadership and management were terrible. Plus you will have the workload of several people all by yourself and you will get blamed when things go sideways. Poor work life balance.

Pros

Pay and benefits and coworkers

Cons

Leadership and management were terrible and no work life balance

Balanced Professional and hardworking with understanding and relaxed.

My personal experience is as an intern, so I don't necessarily represent what everyone would have experienced. A typical day for me was to handle purchase requisitions in a timely manor as they came in. This involved checking the provided information, correcting any mistakes, finding better deals on a desired product if possible, and bringing it to my manager for final approval. I loved the workplace culture, everyone was helpful and understanding when I had questions or concerns. If I were to change anything I would closed off the open cubicles, I understand the desire for open communication between coworkers, but I found that it lead to more distractions than anything else. This propensity for distraction is the main reason I scored the culture lower, the people are kind and helpful, but headphones are a must if you want to get anything done. The management when I was there knew how to work hard and expected you to do the same, but they understood if you struggled or needed help as long as you were open about it and were sincere. They deserve a 10 out of 10, they are still some of the best people I've ever worked for.
