Dont work here unless you dont want a life!!
Die Cast Operator/ (Former Employee) –  Pierceton, INFebruary 12, 2019
The only good thing was the people I worked with and benefits and pay. Everything else was horrible...you have no life they work you 7 days a week. Points system is the worst I've ever seen ...you could be in the hospital dying and they are still going to point you. Management changes continuously NO COMMUNICATION at all.
Pros
Pay benefits
Cons

Good company, poor vision, communication and direction
Manager (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MIJanuary 31, 2019
The company is a conglomeration of smaller companies gathered through acquisition. This resulted in multiple cultures which clash and have difficulty working together. The integration of these cultures have continued to elude the executive leadership team.

Overworked, miserable, poor management.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Auburn, INJanuary 30, 2019
I would only refer someone to this company for the referral bonus that is offered. I personally have a horrible experience with this company. Their point system is horrible and confusing. Don’t call in because it’s always a recording line and they don’t tell you how it works so you never do it right. There heat/air in not regulated, 110+ in the summer & 60-90 in the winter. No breaks other than the paid 30 minute lunch. Don’t spend too long or go to often to the bathroom or everyone will lose their minds and say you’re not preforming your job. The management says they care about employees, but yet terminate you even if you provide doctor notes. They say they will accommodate you, only to lie to your face. Machines are always broken or breaking down. Extreme amounts of overtime, generally 7 days a week. Some of the OT is voluntary but more than likely it will be mandatory.

This is a great job if you don’t have family, or any life outside of work. You’ll make a good chunk of change but you will love and breath for them.
Pros
Paid lunch, Pto, 401K, Benefits, Employees, good pay
Cons
No breaks, poor management, operational waste, excessive overtime

Changing Company
Operator/Laborer (Current Employee) –  Dickson, TNJanuary 27, 2019
Our plant is a work in progress. I can't say what it will be like in three years. It's hard to have a set plan in motion when the management changes constantly. There is no consistency from year to year.

Reliable place to work
Lead Man/Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Wellington, OHJanuary 11, 2019
Can be a good reliable place to work. We tend to change upper management every couple of years, which in turn changes things for awhile with each management teams ideas.

Quality tech.and support, multi tasking (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, TNDecember 16, 2018
Floor employees were great once they actually got to know me and didn't listen to others. Others ruined my reputation because of their own low self esteem. The quality department is known as "The Viper Pit." Beware!!! I did excel in pay quickly. In 1 year I went up in pay 4 bucks! Made more than others but I also applied myself
Pros
All the OT you want.
Cons
Drama, no discipline, no accountability

Not sure about managers decisions
Operator /teamlead (Former Employee) –  Dickson, TNDecember 15, 2018
Was a good place to work, but they made a decision to let Nissan go . When they were 80% of the jobs here. They hired in a manager who had no ability or job knowledge to run a production floor. Used intimidation to get the employees to work, bad decisions on quality of parts even when operators with many years of experience knew not to send parts out.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons

Decent job, good pay, promotion, rough hours
Die Cast Operator/Engineering Technician Intern (Former Employee) –  Pierceton, INDecember 11, 2018
The job is okay, for the most part. Currently they have people working 7 days a week which is pretty rough as time goes on. The pay is quite good, however. They do provide vast opportunities for promotion.

long hours and unperdictable overtime
Machine Operator I (Former Employee) –  Alma, MI 48801November 16, 2018
overall good place to work but the family work balance is a problem. and the overtime can happen without any warning at all and if u don't volunteer to take it you will get forced to work and if u don't u will get points assigned to you which at a certain amount of points you will be up for termination review.

Laborer (Former Employee) –  Wellington, OHOctober 19, 2018
The training was minimal at best. There were no standard operating procedures books to look through to thoroughly do your job in the correct and proper fashion.

Worse place I ever worked at
Employee (Former Employee) –  Canton, MISeptember 30, 2018
They used a split week schedule 38 hours 1 weeks, 48 next with revolving days so worked a lot of weekends and no O.T. pay. No directions then management got mad because you didn't do what they thought you should. Put people on jobs that were difficult for them because they thought it was funny and wanted to see them fail. Write you up for punching in or out 10 minutes early or 10 minutes after your shift rather than fixing their time system. Used health evaluations to give discount on health insurance.
Pros
Its a "Job"
Cons
Everything once you walk in the door

Great place over all
CNC Machinist and Programmer (Current Employee) –  Dickson, TNJuly 24, 2018
Great place to work if upper management doesn't end up making one too any bad decisions thus running right straight into the ground.

The people on the "floor" are cool as are those in H.R. not really an complaints other than This...

"How do you go from being a major supplier to Nissan. To having Nissan pull nearly ALL their parts from you?"
YOU LOOK A GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH....THATS HOW...
