When is management gonna wake up and realize that a once good place to work has become nothing more than a sweat shop. Whats the point in trying to run anymore, we arent going to get a day off no matter how good we do. Everytime someone asks when are we going to get a day off they always get "well we have a team looking into it". Its only a matter of time before another plant opens up and Jtekt will not be able to keep the doors shut for everyone leaving. A union dont sound so bad anymore.

STFU you sad little whiner. You're getting paid more than your worth anyways. The other available jobs you can choose from pay a lil over half what you are making now. Some people will bitch and moan about anything.

Well, you see, the office people have better jobs than you. If you get a better job than you can have better conditions to your employment....just as you now enjoy better benefits than a burger flipper.

Its an occurance everytime you take a sick day, unless you go through the headache of using fmla. Personal time, now thats a diffrent story. An occurance everytime. 5 occurances you get in trouble. Sounds kinda retarded to me. Also retarded to have to take vacation friday just to get the weekend off. But hey, what do I know, Im just a pawn.

Youpoor widdle baby. Gosh they treat you like dirt don't they? I'd call the Labor Board if I was you and tell them all about this stuff. You shouldn't have to put up with such horrible treatment.

You're an immature wuss is what you are. Grow up and realize you should be very thankful to have a job with some ok benefits that pays twice minimum wage for doing unskilled labor.

They just tell you that you get all that to make it look like such a great place to work. It's all changing since the economy has went down the toilet.

It's funny how we hear just be thankful you have a job from management all the time and we are. I know I am. But anyone who started working there before the company went to JTEKT they would tell you it used to be a great company. The upper management we had before put people before the company and it worked for them. It's amazing how many people say we are whining. But when you are used to certain things at your job and your management being honest and upfront with you, you would notice the differences when it all stops. Jtekt used to be highly competitive with insurance and pay for their employees but now they feel they do not have to be because of the economy situation and employment situation. Management may want to realize who makes their paychecks and start treating the employees as they want to be treated by their managers. Be honest and upfront instead of all the secrecy and lies behind employees backs. It makes a difference in the quality and the amount of work an employee will do.
