That's why temporary labor is there. They can promise unicorns an rainbows, they have Yates for the reasons you stated. The Nissan employee pipe dream is just that.

Usually doesn't matter what other skills you have, unless you know someone in upper management, you will be on assembly line.

Do you get uniforms or just wear your street clothes if you work for yates

You'll get t-shirts that say Nissan. Nissan people get full uniforms. That is just one more thing that is NOT fair to Yates. In the beginning, Yates was to have the easier jobs, the offline jobs. Not now. You will be doing the same job as Nissan techs. It might all work out for ya some day. The ultimate plan is to have Nissan contracted out nearly 100%, and that has been told. Why would Nissan hire you guys as Nissan, if that is the ultimate plan? But.....what will become of us Nissan folks?

Joe Blow, Yates does the offline jobs, but they take a reduced pay rate doing them, which is wrong as well. If a temp works online, they pay them a few pennies more, which is wrong. They should be getting PTO hours, an to have the privilege of using their vacation days whenever they want instead of having to use them when we shutdown because Nissan's cheap ass won't pay them like they do us, which is wrong. Everything they do to Yates is wrong, but I forgot, we don't need a union, they speak for themselves.

Nissan employees always gets their extra money (not a bonus since it is $1.55 a hour taken out for six months), on Memorial Day weekend. We all will probably get something to keep union out, but do not expect much. The initial sum sounds nice until they take taxes out, then it isn't crap.

Working in the Nissan plant among the Yates (Yakes) is like working on a pirate ship. During my time in the factory (months) the store was robbed, there was a mugging at the ATM and a sort of strip club was operating in an isolated part of the plant. Most of the Nissan workers are okay working class people. However the Yates crew are 75% animals and thugs from the lower classes of society. You will be forced to listen to their rap music and look at their dumb neck tatoos (nothing against tats just dumb ones) and hear about their meaningless lives of drinking and being reprobates in general. You'll also work among an even lower class of animal hired by some other outsourced group of people who weren't yates material. Some of them are Africans who have never used power tools and can't change a battery. Others are crack hookers, meth heads and people just clean enough to pass a drug test for a few hours. About 15% of these people are good honest hard working simple country folks and motor heads who need work and drive ridiculous miles in hopes of one day getting on with Nissan which will never happen. It's a sad place of despair although I managed to have a little fun at the expense of my IQ.

85% of people working for Yates are thugs. I was also there when the store got robbed and people were getting mugged. I wouldn't be surprised if someone gets raped but says nothing just to keep 15.75/hr. I heard about the strip club they busted too.

That is what upper management wants working in there to save a dollar for them. That is another reason for high turnover rate. When they first started hiring them, they actually tried to screen people to try to get good ones. But the pay sucked an benefits were pathetic, so naturally most quit. Then they upped pay an gave a few benefits to try to get people to stay, but still people quit. Then as this third shift was trying to start up they had to get people to make it work, so they had no choice but to lower the employment standards, so this is what you get when you do that.
