    Pros

    Clean facility, cafeteria is pretty good

    Never received overtime pay, long hours, mandatory overtime is a weekly thing, if you haven’t been there for at least 15 years, there’s a big chance that you’re going to get laid off sooner or later

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ok. Very German work culture, but it is completely different in each department. Purchasing is very intense, but rewarding if you have it in you. Leadership is very progressive and people oriented.

    Cons

    Pay isn’t great and the global corporate structure is like wearing a straight jacket.
