Current Kokomo Chrysler workers are about to have thier pay cut nearly in HALF! They should have learned from thier UAW brothers and sisters from across the street. Just like Delphi, they are going to scare everyone they can into taking a buyout or retiring. Then under the two tier payscale they will hire, hire, hire until the low scale membership is greater than the high pay. Once this happens they are going to ask for a vote.
This vote on pay will be a considerable decrease in pay for the previous employees and a meager raise with "some" benefits for the low tier.
Think your union is going to take a pay cut too??? NOT LIKELY!!!!
The auto maker CEO's and UAW are in bed with each other, and they aren't making porn! They're making $$$$$$$$$$
Should have payed attention to what was going on across the street.

We are all idle in the process and dont know where it goes from here.Anyone in my boat on step 9 just waiting??Holla!

They have not even brought in 50 people yet let alone 300. Be patient. It was a little over a year I waited before they called me. That was 15 years ago.

well they needed 300 and 3000 applied. so alot won't get in and alot won't pass thru the tests. but i'm sure it will be more than 300 to pass it. so alot will luck out. i heard they took so many to give everyone a chance. but they are still testing and i hear they already got the 300 picked, so then everyone didn't get a chance. i hear i'm on hold waiting on chrysler to ask for more applications to be sent to them to pick. if and when. so i'm not sure what's going on. or how long my application will be good for. i hear 6 months. so then what. i start over again.

I am on step 9 it is still red.I pass everything and told they arent ready to send another batch to chrysler.I dont know but something just isnt adding up.They were telling us in the email we were hired in step 3 or 4 then pulling the rug from some people making them feel like a dam fool after they went around telling everyone they were hired at ctp.So I dunno bet I bet you anything this is rigged but why still taking interviews clear out till september?Doesnt add up.Does anyone know of any people to actually get hired on?

i also heard they were testing into sept. for kokomo. i really can't figure it out either. don't make much sense to me. i can't find out much either. but my past experiences i always thought with most jobs that you were hired when they sent you for drug test/physical. providing you passed it. i'm wondering if i'll even hear anything else. it seems misleading and get your hopes up. then get let down. and your hanging in the air wondering. but all this testing is costing them money.

I am almost done with my testing too and know of at least 3 ppl that are completly done w/ their testing and just waiting. They have went around facebook and myspace letting every1 know that they r hired but nothing yet, so im just keeping to myself for now. I do have 3+ yrs of experience and was laid off in Jan of 2009 from Delphi and am in school now but would rather be working b/c even after I graduate the most I'll make with my degree is $9.00 an hr (associates in med assisting) so I guess it's just a waiting game?! Seems weird that every single person is getting through all the steps! You would think they would look for experience, past job performance and references, drug testing, and even how well you answered the phone interview questions, and then online it says that if hired it will be for a duration of 119 days?! I may have misunderstood the last part but I wish I knew what the heck was going on!

What do u mean they pulled the rug out from some ppl? do u mean that they called and told them they were no longer on the waiting list?

i do know everyone isn't making it to step 9. i know one person who didn't make it thru the phone interview. their email told them they were not what they were looking for and their process ended. and that person had worked in a factory in the past. i also saw where one person listed they got a restriction on their blood pressure from the physical. i'm sure of us ones that has made it to step 9 will never get called. that does not mean we are getting hired on. we are just on the list. i myself had worked 18 years in the past in a factory.

I can't understand why they would test 3,000 people and run backgrounds on 3,000 people.I would think they would pick under 1,000 and test from there.What a waste of money.How are we going to find out anything? It seems we are all together on the step 9 thing.Lets call Kara Kenny from wrtv6.She will help us.

i heard they were testing way too many people. and i agree. i don't understand it either. i don't see them ever needing that many people. that is costing them alot of money to test which they are suppose to be in trouble. then everyone is left wondering what the heck is up??? wish we could get some real answers. it just seems like there is something just not adding up. they test all these people and then put a hold on everything.
