Is this a good place to work? Do they have many layoffs? What about management? Pay?

If your lucky enough to get hired on full time, only way to get on is through Delta that I know of, I worked there 5 months through delta my first time there and had no word about being hired full time.

It's probably not the worst place to work, but I hear a bunch of people complain about it, others just learn to deal with it. Far as lay offs, I believe they usually have a couple layoffs a year on average.

Listen....I've been there many years now! Who ever it is that's making 16 dollars an hour...You are the exception...not the rule! The majority of us make much less than that and the future outlook for the appliance industry is GRIM..at best! 2009 is still up in the air and I wouldn't recommend anyone to start a career in manufacturing right now! Wait it out and see what happens!

Yeah, last few months they were laying people off from what I heard as well. The layoff periods I was reffering to are usually around July 4th break and end of the year. My dad's been working there for around 8 years.

The first time I worked there I was there 5 months, they had a layoff and started moving people around, I was lucky I wasn't kicked right away, but I was temp so it was only a matter of time.

The second time I worked there for three months and then I got laid off. So like I said, if your lucky to get hired in you might have a chance, but with jobs the way they are I wouldn't go for it if you can do something else...

So did anyone hear any rumors today? Like a decision being made and announced by Aug?

I have heard that they have sold Emerson. It may be a good thing for us but it may hurt us. The way i look it is they should tell us now..

Let me retract part of this. They have not anoounced the sale yet but said something will be announced in Aug. It seems that some people think they already know but they don't because nothing has been announced yet unless they told them something today.

The two most serious groups are Regal Beloit and Nidec.
Regal Beloit owns Marathon Motors and Baldor Motors,along with
other entities. They have commercial motor/drives, and are
looking to expand to the appliance motor business.
NIDEC is Japanese firm that employees 129,000 people worldwide.
From Japan, Thailand, China, and the Phillipines. They are
producers of DC drives, CD-ROM technology, and many other types
of electronic systems. I can't believe they would want to buy
our plants with all the obsolete machinery we have in it. We
have a history of 4%/6% NET profits - the rest of NIDEC
entities return more in the 12%/14% NET profits.
Only the execs know what's going on - they will let us know
when it is the best for them.
