Keep that positive attitude Norm, it's the only thing that will keep you going. It's been nearly 2 years since I last stepped foot in there and after all this time I have to read anything positive. The same methods then reaching the same conclusions now. I wish you good luck towards your future plans.

I worked at jaytec just short of 3 months... I was hired to work in the welding dept, yet spent most of the day pushing a broom and wiping down machines. I finally had enough when I was asked to keep running parts (that the set up man Shawn and bill knew were not good) I ended up walking out. Anyone considering working there please reconsider, this is definately not a place you should consider for employment.

Just be glad you're out and never look back Mel. Too many problems there for anyone to fix. I'm surprised any car manufacturer is still keeping them in business. I have worked with a number of people who worked there and a couple of other L&W plants, they all say the same thing that's said on this thread....nothing good.

One of the main problems working at L&W is they don't care about safety. I was a operator that ran the brose machine and the clamp would shut with me in the light curtains. I told maintenance and my supervisor, they worked on the machine a little and told me the machine must run and get back to work. Not sure how many people will get hurt, they care more about the parts then they do people and that's no lie.

Hello Ex-Worker. I agree with you 100%. I started working there in July 2012... Maybe we worked together.... But August 3rd of 2012 the Brose machine too the tips of my index and middle finger. Im not gonna say its a bad place to work... they "Treated" me well up until i came back to work after being off for 3 months. Still knowing im in alot of pain though they threw me back in the mix full force... Lame I Know. now they are shuting down and transfering everyone. Sucks big time. You should be HAPPY you dont work for the company anymore!

Sounds like typical L&W for you, dump a load of cash into a building only to pull up stakes and leave it empty a short time later. I'm so glad to be gone, almost 3 years now and life is so much better. Best of luck to those who stick around.
