Terrible management don’t care about the people at all have you working more than 60 hrs a week a family member could die and they don’t want to let you off or try and make you feel bad if you’re sick and have to be off the place needs to be shut down it’s the devil
Pros

Not worth it
production/assembly (Former Employee) –  Whitehall, MI11 March 2019
Plan on being stuck on 2nd shift for a long time. It will take a minimum of 12-13 yrs to get to 1st shift. If you're lucky, you can get on 3rd but will be bumped back to 2nd due to higher seniority people being able to change shifts every 6 months. New hires can only request it once a year.

Medical insurance will cost over $80 a week to cover you and 1 or more children--- once the $2500 yrly deductible is paid, they will cover 80% for services. Company pays nothing towards it.

Dental Plan isn't accepted at very many offices - high deductible and then pays 80% only.

You only get a ten minute break and a 14 minute lunch per shift.

You can't have a cell phone in the shop and will be terminated if they find out you have one -- they are authorized to search you.

You can't bring a bag, purse, toolbox, lunch box, or any type of vessel that holds anything personal in it -- not even chapstick or hand lotion into the shop. They can search you.

You can't miss work or be late for ANY reason during probationary period. I witnessed a young lady being informed that if she missed her shift (or even came in late) to attend her father's funeral, she would be terminated. She came to work and cried the entire shift. .
Pros
Good wage
Cons
medical/dental insurance premiums, short breaks, no consideration or compassion for unexpected/unavoidable life events

Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Whitehall, MI21 October 2018
Only left the company because they will not promote or hire people without a bachelor's degree, also would not allow me to go back to school to get the degree to be promoted.
Other than than culture was good, people super nice, a positive place to work.

My time at this company was somewhat fun. I enjoyed the people that I worked with, however, the management made the employees feel like at any moment they would fire you for anything that they felt.
