Maintenance Technician
in Dearborn, MI

"Not a nice place to work. They act like dictators of your life, telling you what kind of long-johns you can wear, whether you can change your own tire in the parking lot, arbitrarily extending your work day 18 minutes so they can harp on you about somebody somewhere that hurt himself with a crescent wrench. The supervisors write people up, and they say, "I'll get brownie points from upper management for disciplining an employee." They take safety to the point that you have a very hard time doing your job, making you wear protective sleeves that make you sweat profusely, even in cold weather. Expect to be treated like a robot, not a human."
