Great benefits and pay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I’ve been employed with Denso 1.5 years and have enjoyed my time there. Work is not heavy but constant and monotonous but you are well paid. Benefits are great.


Good pay and benefits


Shift work

It's alright

Job is fine. Very repetitive and boring once you get used to your stations but at least with the department I am in I cannot complain. My team leaders are supportive and I don't feel all that stressed on the job

Repetitive and busy.

The work is very repetitive and boring. Once you are at top rate pay is ok. Company benefits are really good. Most of the sub leaders have an attitude problem and think they are gods gift to Denso. They also have really poor people skills.

Steady work - worst communication, organization and appreciation

I used to defend this company to everyone no matter what because in all I thought it was a great company to work for. Sadly, I was wrong. Keep in mind I had next to no major issues until I decided to leave this company because I couldn't advance and wanted a new career.Working their in general is fine if you do not want to advance and are willing to work crazy long hours. But if you are looking to build a career that will require some serious a** kissing and making sure you are managements favorite. Even following their 'road map' you'll have to fight to get the opportunity to complete tasks. You will have no life outside of Denso. If you are single and looking to make decent money, awesome! If you even wish to have any social life or family time you'll miss out. This is not the case in every department but in the main areas you could be working 10-12 hours a day. Add in commute and getting ready etc you're looking at a very long exhausting day. If you try to raise an issue to HR, well they are to busy to truly help you past the surface of getting you out their door. They may even encourage you to take time off then email you with unclear instructions that you've already addressed with them. Now, this isn't their fault as they are under staffed and underworked but my HR rep needed much better communication skills. Email correspondence in abbreviation and one sentence replies was not sufficient regarding larger issues. Depending on who you are trying to contact within the company regarding simple requests you most likely will never hear back from them. I was lucky to get - 


Work is always available, pay is decent, could make a couple work friends.


Long hours, lack of communication, little support, disorganized, stressful, favoritism

Fast paced

The people are amazing to work with but like every job you'll have some you won't get along with. It is a fast paced work on the line. If you got issues? Forget it. Management won't really listen to you especially if it is work related. They rather wait for someone to get physically hurt. 2 week shift rotation - 2 weeks days, then 2 weeks afternoons vice versa. Only 7 Family emergency days.


Good pay, amazing benefits, people are amazing, 2 weeks paid vacation, 1 week off at Christmas.


2 weeks afternoons (4pm to 230am), shift work (2 weeks days 6am to 4pm- then 2 weeks afternoons), poor management

great management

Not only are the people you work with great but so is management. I found out i was pregnant shortly after applying at Denso, so when i started there i was pregnant. Being a new employee and having my appointments and missing time for them and being sick management was very understandable.

Temporary production associate

Overall great team leaders who care for their team members. Fast paced environment. Rotating positions during the shift, for a healthier, more enjoyable experience. Co-workers for most areas are hard working individuals who are a pleasure to work with. The office management is the only area, in my opinion, that requires improvements in communication. Some practices defined by "Deming’s Five Deadly Diseases" of manufacturing need to be recognized and appropriately mended.


Available over-time if desired, and full cafeteria with reasonable prices.


10-hour shift work may not be desirable for all. Physically demanding for some.

great place aside from shift work, pay is good

I do not mind working for Denso. The pay is good and they treat their employees well. The only problem is the shift work. It is two weeks days and two weeks afternoons which is not ideal considering I have two children
