I am currently emplyoed there through Kelly Services. After working there for a few months I have come to realize that Jaytec as a business is doing what they should be doing. The company that occupied the factory before Jaytec went under and from what I understand from a former employee is that there was not a worker that made less than $20 per hour. None of the positions there require any intelligence beyond high school so why is everyone expecting a college degree salary?$9.00 an hour is what most should expect and most factory based positions start at. And if you find better, then great, you likely just got lucky. There are however a few things that I disagree with. I don't understand the reasoning behind withholding 5% of associates' wages. Sure it bought a new factory ($1.5 million), new robots to replace positions, and even a Hummer H2 for the owners son ($50,000+) who at the time wasn't old enough to drive it. Seems like in these rough times it would be easier to buy something a little more economical. Maybe a Honda, since we make parts for them.
Also, I have heard of a few associates that haven't gotten a raise since they have been here (some with over 3 years of employment). There are not any earnings statements viewable to associates so they could be banking without rewarding production workers.
As far as this goes Jaytec is a great place for temporary employment. If you're expecting to make a bunch of money a live comfortably go get an education.
You can make 9$ hr at Mcdonalds, Taco Bell, KFC, Subway. 12$hr would be more like it. They would still be making tons of money. A college education you would get more like 17$ hr. Companies nowadays could care less about the employees banking anything, but there paycheck. They want worse insurance, benefits, less wages, etc, and more work. Even when your tapped out and physically worn out they want more more more. Nine dollars an hr really wants you to make that effort. In their minds anyways. Hopefully these leaches can sleep at night. Pass this company up at all costs!!

This is a listing of the wages for employees in the Ann Arbor region : http://stats.bls.gov/oes/2008/may/oes_11460.h...

Please note that the wage for general production is over $16. per hour. Some companies pay more, some pay less. Maybe the employees at JayTech should find out how much JayTech is paying Kelly Services for their labor.

I guess someone who works in management at Jaytec would call someone that doesn't agree with them a troll. People who do that are people who can defend their own opinions. They have to try to call other people names or say something about them instead of replying with real information. I have applications in everywhere and as soon as I get a different job I'm gone!


A "TROLL"is an internet term for someone gives misleading/and or false information to incite negative attention to their post.
B Im just a temp and I don't see any valuable information in your bitching really...(Other than an insight to your work ethic I guess.)
C Good luck with your job search! I hope you have the class to not post negative things about the next place you work!

This is the only place I've ever worked that was bad. I've never had any problems at a job and have no problems where I am at now. I just look around and see that this is not a good place to work. I don't plan to stay.

Since you're a 'temp' too - why are you so worried about what other people think? What happens when they decide they don't want to keep your @ss? You're a brown-noser - that's pretty apparent from your posts, you can't tell me that anyone has any respect for someone like you. Also - if you're such a wonderful worker and a great asset to JayTech why haven't they offered you a permanent position yet? Hell - why are you working there at all - I'd tink Kelly would be able to find someone like you a much better and higher paying job.

As for your concern over my job search - I'm not all that worried about - so why are you? The job I got laid off from is calling people back now. According to the office I have about another month. In the meantime my wife's job has taken care of our mortgage and bills. I can guarantee that I live a lot better than you do, my home is worth more than yous is (even with real estate down), I also guarantee that YOUR paychecks from Kelly for an entire month are less than I made each week at the job I'm going back to. So you just keep praying for my sorry 'troll' self to get a 'real' job. I'll be back to making my 28 an hour with a 60 cent shift differential in no time. And te best part is - I never lost my BC/BS, Delta Dental or Optical coverage. So you can enjoy working at JayTech. I'll think about you often while I'm enjoying my summer back at a good place to work.

The place I worked at is hiring new employees too - but I'm not going to bother telling you the name of the place because you're too happy at Jaytec. Wouldn't want you to have to quit somplace that is sooo great.

You are the BIGGEST troll I have ever seen! What do you do in your spare time, copy and paste fur ads on the P.E.T.A website? I haven't kissed anyones ass. I just called you out for trolling and you have pulled every crummy,weak move from your troll handbook. Really dude you're trying to get all personal with someone you never met. I based my comments on empirical evidence you sir are being needlessly defensive with your personal attacks. I don't care if you live in a mansion and your wife is a doctor you are still just a whiny little troll.LMAO!!!

Wow - you sound pretty gay. Jealous much? I do live better than you - I live better than any of those turds downriver too - Linclon Park? That's one step up from Taylortucky. Talk about some serious low class people. Oh yeah - I wish I were you. NOT!

You know who I am huh? So why not talk to me face to face? I'm not sure who you are - so if you think you're such a tough guy - why not say something to me while we're at work - or before or after?

I state the facts that I know - I state what I observe. That doesn't make me a troll - but your calling me one while you suck Bill's dick DOES make you a kiss @ss.

So you just keep trying - I highly doubt you have the guts to say word one to me at work, so don't let your dickpuffer write a check that your ass can't cash.

BTW - make sure you do it soon if you have the guts. I already let Kelly know I'm done in a week. Going to take a couple of weeks off before I go to a REAL job.

Dayum! Someone told me about this but I had no idea it was thiiiiiiiiiissssssssss bad! I worked there for a short time. No big deal. Not a lot of people were working there yet but everyone was pretty cool. I am looking for someone who worked there when I did. He had a boat that he wanted to sell and I still want to buy it. Can't remember his name and I don't know if he still works there. I think he was only working until spring or something. He used to go out front for breaks to smoke a cig. Nice dude, youngish, think he wore glasses. If he's still there and someone can let me know I'll run by at his shift break and get the boat info from him. Just leave a message here and I'll check back. No stupid ideas - I'm not a dude and I really don't care what is going on in that place. Just interested in the boat. Thanks.

Two years huh? So ya sat in a cold empty building for quite a while eh? Jaytec was still moving in machinery in January. In November there were only a hand full of employees.

So I guess that makes you a liar. A stupid one at that.

Dude look at all the bad comments there are more bad then good. Did jay tech ask you to say that. That place is a joke and it is said when out of these 30 something comments more then 7/8 is bad. Now what you got to say about that. They dont allow you to be sick or nothing. I had a doctors note and everything I could not work so they made a big deal and got rid of me. I had good attendance was there 7 months and missed 1 day so they canned me. I was a good worker and no problems. This company does nothing but point the finger. And for bill he is lucky I dont tell his wife how he would say dirty things to me. But thats your management for you. The only way to make it there is on your knees kissing ass.

Well asshat - they still have the plant in Britton - so obviously the chelsea plant is NOT the same plant. Only a hand full of employees came over from that plant and most didn't want to.
BTW - look at your spelling - think you qualify for the 2% at the bottom of the Weschler scale. Doesn't help that you're a pompon carrying Jaytec suck up (or off, depending on what Bill wants any particular day).

This place is not a place anyone wants to work. They treat people like crap, want you to run 1000's of parts per day, on JUNK riddled 18th century machines. Then wonder why you didnt meet your numbers. The management needs to all be replaced. With someone with an IQ over 30. Especially Kim.

Three times deleted for informing people who have been terminated from Jaytec that they can call MIOSHA and file a complaint!

You have a right to file a complaint against this company if you feel that they have terminated you without good cause. You have a right to file a complaint if the supervisors have threatened you with loss of your job, sexually harrassed you or if there are safety violations which put you and other workers at risk of injury.

IF you still work at Jaytec and file a complaint, you are protected under the Whistle Blower Law. You can find out more about it by calling one-eight hundred-nine six eight-zero seven three eight.

You only have 30 days to file a complaint for wrongful termination - just because they tell you Michigan is an 'at will' state, you are still protected under the MIOSHA statutes. You can contact them at three one three-four five six-three one zero nine.

I will continue posting this same information everytime it gets deleted. It's obvious that Jaytec does NOT want you to have this information. MIOSHA also has a copy of these posts and is aware that Jaytec is having this information flagged and removed. Sort of like how they don't keep a copy of the MSDS available to the employees. That is a violation of the MIOSHA statutes.
