it's amazing how many people I have come in contact with over the last couple weeks that have been employed at Nordyne that have nothing but bad things to say about the company. Nordyne is not a company that cares about the employee, they care more about their numbers and the almighty dollar. I was employed there for 8 years myself and I seen alot of people being treated unfairly. and I believe I was one of those people. I understand that they have to do things by the book, but in some circumstances they need to go a little less by the book and a lot more from the heart. there are alot of good hard working people that work there that depend on the job to survive. they have families to feed and support and when they terminate someone, they do not just do it to the employee, they do it to the family.

They have really strict rules, but as long as you follow them you won't have any problems. I've been there for two months and I love it. The only people I've met who complain about it are the ones who decided to skip work too often or the ones who thought they could still get high and got busted. Frankly, if you're not willing to go by the book, then you don't deserve to keep your job. That goes for any job, not just Nordyne.

Guess you just haven't been there long enough..Becky hit the nail on the head with her post... when I was working there, they fired a man for missing his alloted 3 days a year; knowing full well that it was because his house burnt to the ground & he lost everything... so I ask you, does that go with any job? I think not. And that's just ONE example.

If they had equipment that worked right people wouldnt get fires. Worked there for a few years saw people walked out the door for not doing things properly, if they had proper equipment you would have better workers and a better product. Just saying ...

Sounds like Briggs and Stratton. We have a ^ick head plant manager named Mark Melloy that is very cold and Does things by the book to the letter. He even changes his own rules to get ride of people, He's a real low life and doesn't seem to care one bit about fireing people or demoting them in pay or there job statis or both. I hope God gives him everything he has coming to him.....like a bolt of lighting, hit by a train, plane crash on his house while he sleeps, His $hitty ford blow up or something like that would be great to hear about.

come back here after another 2 months and we,ll take another reading. you don't know yet that your a statistic waiting to happen. this fall when the lay offs start, and if you remain a loyal worker to nordyne (and you won't if you stay long enough), they'll keep you on, tell you how fragile your job is, then place you somewhere you never been, once there you'll be one of the bastard children cause you can't keep up, etc...you know that problem cause your still new.

someone will make sure you have the all important stick, and if something goes wrong guess who gets the blame?, and in all likleyhood it will be your fault, your in a new spot, working under impossible conditions, trying to make production, but, if your really lucky, and you have a really considerate supervisor, once every other month or so you will get an extra 5 minutes on your break if you do make production, THATS A GREAT INCENTIVE, AND WATCH HOW HARD YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF WORKING FOR THAT 5 MINUTES, I wish you the best, don't know what you do there but i've been "round the horn", good luck go right now to someone you like that has worked there for at least 6 month and have them educate you on FMLA, you'll need it if you stay very long, watch the oil...

perfect example, fin press...p.o.s. pop a dye, go home after cleaning shit that cant be cleaned anymore, well except for the poor sucker running the machine, he gets overtime that day, come in, dye broke, go home or you can work scrap, it sucks but if you drove a long way....your choice, sometimes. dont dare knock the guy off the other fin press, hes in working o.t., fix yours...aaahhhhh
the way they could help moral and keep employees that have already been trained is to quit micro manageing, I personally hated when the bald guy would come by and stick his head in a machine, with me knowing he had not a funking clue what he was seeing, and with me also knowing that the machine has been funked up for years, and repaired with a band-aid each time, I dont know how the fin press operators put up with that shlt, I know 2 that didn't.
I wont even start about the oil on the floor.

hair pins, hell i wont even go there either....

evap coils, condensor coils, whichever the huge ones are, damn I dont know how they keep from killing each other, i worked in coil fab, but wound up with the big coils, I was a set up absent the pay, if the girl that has worked there 2 months reads this remember the phrase "set up absent the pay" make sure you ask about that if you find yourself in that position, at the end of the day or night you would be so aggrevated at each other i'm amazed we all didn't fight, but we kept coming back to that shlthole to do it again

I agree with your analogy of how to have better products and better workers, but would add that the cost of living is up by 30% across the board, in order to acheive a 30% net increase in the cost of living it means everything used to calculate the 30% net had to be increased in price by 50%. if you gross $10.00 an hour and work 40 hrs a week, no overtime, using the tax rate of 30%(which is in favor of the employeer) you net (clear) 24.00 per day, i done this using 10.00 as it would be easy to figure if you make 15.00, 20.00 so on., an increase in cash would help as well.
