I WORK IN THE HR DEPARTMENT FOR YATES. I'VE READ ALOT OF COMMENTS ON HERE REGARDING WORKERS ARE "TEMP" ANYONE HIRED TO YATES ARE NOT "TEMPS" ITS ACTUALLY A VERY SECURE JOB. IS IT HARD??? YES ITS HARD WORK, BUT YOU GET PAID TIME OFF FOR HOLIDAYS AND VERY GOOD BENIFITS. IF YOU CAN STICK WTIH IT ITS A GOOD JOB
It took forever to get my direct deposit working, I gave them numerous blank voided checks with my bank account information on them and they lost them all. Then my supervisor had the nerve to tell me I'm not following company policy for not having direct deposit after giving them all those checks.. yates has a bunch of lazy assholes working for them up front. If I did a half ass job like they did then they would personally walk me out. If your not in the "click" then you'll never be anything here.

U have to remember they get their marching orders from Nissan management. Nissan HR is a joke also, basically they never come around, never are there early before work, disappear at lunch, and are gone afterwards. Why? Because they want low morale, an don't wanna hear people bitching. Now we have our HR on a computer. They used to walk up an down the lines, that never happens anymore. U will not see them now because of shift changes, they know people are pissed off.

nissyates, with you having over 20 years with Nissan I sure would like to talk with you. I will be having my 1st interview next week and have questions that you could answer and advise.

Few things fomoco1. You need to get the newbies on here to explain the process they go through on interviews, questions, etc. With my tenure, i have no clue what all they ask, probably stuff like why do you want to work here, etc. More importantly for me is even though you are probably a nice person, an really just want some answers from an experienced employee, i know there are HR, an managers trolling around on here trying to get a pulse of people. I get on here an spit vile about the place, but everything i say is the truth, an management hates truth. I find it ironic that, one, i posted almost 2 an half months ago my length of tenure on here, an two, it is also ironic that when the last few posts were about HR, someone now wants to personally talk to me. So any chatting will be as it has been. It's ashamed i have to hide behind a computer screename, but i have been there long enough to know nothing management does surprises me. So if u are management, nice try, if u are not, then i apologize.

During your interview they will ask all kinds of questions about yourself. First day of training you will do 4 stations of power tooling. Then 2nd day of training you will be timed. 3rd day of training you will be watched by supervisors. Then you do the waiting game!

You ain't alone, all the yates people feel the same way you do, hr doesn't care about us. The only way to move up here is to suck ass. Yates is full of scabs for management. They want to keep people from moving up, but they expect you to work hour ass off for nothing. Nissan and Yates are shooting themselves in the foot, this is the kind of stuff that brings Unions into factories, and the UAW is knocking on our doors. Everyone I talk to is for the UAW, Nissan and Yates employees....

nissyates, I certainly understand your position and concern and I absolutely do not fault you at all. I will assure you that I made an honest coincidental post to you and I've never been involved with Nissan or Yates.

Thanks Gavin, man, the way current employees are talking this isn't a secure or structured job at all. Well, I guess one can only get in there and give it a try & see. I was told it was for second shift only but now I don't know, sounds like your shift can change at will if you get in to start with.

I appreciate your response to me. Your shift can change. They can do whatever they want, whenever they want, to whoever they want. They will tell u something one day, then tell u something else the next. Good luck if u give it a try. Be prepared to work hard an get jerked around. Remember they just need people anywhere, any shift because of manpower problems from turnover rate. An be prepared to short shift from equipment an parts problems.

That all stands to reason and you would obviously know. I do appreciate the heads up nissgates.

I was also told you could become a regular Nissan employee but that seems to be questionable.

i refuse to work for a temp service. plenty of places hiring fulltime. yates is not a career type job. they'll keep ya around while they need ya but turn around and dump everyone every now and then. same thing they've always done. you have no chance of ever working for nissan as they use temp slave labor with a high turnover rate and weak benefits.

That seems to be the consensus from the 240 posts here. What a shame and even more of a shame for the Yates employees that were trying to better themselves.

I have a uncle that retired from Nissan 5 years ago or so and he says it's not even the same company as when he was hired in 1980 or 81 when Nissan opened their doors. He was in maintenance and has 25/26 years so like nissyates, they should know.

Very true. Nissan should be ashamed for what they are doing. HOWWEVER, I mean no disrespect for any of the temp workers there. It's sad that they are treated the way they are but I don't want to come off as disliking them, it's Nissan and Yates that are in the wrong.

I totally agree. I feel sorry for yates employees i train an work beside. They should be making just as much as me, and be a Nissan employee. I have posted that on here many times. No it isn't the same place it used to be. If it was, when they offered the buyout few years ago, half of the workforce would not have left. Management did not expect that many to leave. If you had better management, so many wouldn't have. An the ones that stayed should have been treated better for being loyal. But what did we get??? More parts added on our jobs, line speed raised dramatically. No raise in 7 years, benefits worse price for it raises. No bonuses while management gets them yearly. 4 day, 32 hour check for one year, while salaried management never loses a penny. If u were management, an u had that many people walking out of a good paying job, when their are none out there to find, wouldn't you want to know why, an then try to make things better?? Their answer is temp, low wage labor, that they can screw, an lay off anytime they wish. Have already done that, an will again. I know people have families an themselves to take care of, but think hard before u choose communist Nissan.

Very well put with excellent points and warnings nissgates. Coming from you and what my retired uncle said there's your "inside" proof.

I know it's of course political but are the Nissan "brass" the primary roadblock for Nissan not being union because I know obviously the employees would want this?

Nissan corporate management an Smyrna management is ran like the mafia. They don't want the union because it ruins their massive bonuses that they should be sharing with workers. They couldn't get away with treating people like they do with union representation. That being said, combination of roadblocks keeps union out an has for years. You have a few in every zone that will speak out, while the rest are too scared to. These that speak out are stereotyped as being negative, having a bad attitude. You can't get the majority to stand up. The workers have the power, but too many are scared. Second, everytime a organizational effort is tried, management takes people to meetings an scares them with threats of if union gets in your lease car privileges will go away, your pay will change, an so will your bonuses (which by the way, is your money that they withhold for 6 mths, twice a year). Third, they will give you a $800 to $1200 check to basically brainwash you with cash not to be for union. You will be amazed how that works. Think about it now. Temps don't make crap anyway, if you are thrown a $1200 check you would be happy. They are good at psychological mind games. Us old timers know all their tricks, the new ones do not. Old timers also think Nissan pays the UAW to keep them out. Last vote we had, everyone voted for it, but it somehow got voted out.
