Horrible pay and work long hours with barley no days off work

I work 2 years at LG I thought it was a good company but I was so wrong they don’t promote from within they work long hours and low pay Very low top out pay Two years was a waste of time they don’t value you

Pros

Free benefits

Cons

Free benefits you can’t use

They only care about the bottom line.

They seem only to promote military people. The breaks are too short. The line moves at .07 seconds per stop, some jobs require the work of 2 or 3 people and if you miss anything, they can't wait to write you up. It's very hot inside and with the line moving so fast, you have no time for water. If you want to go to the restroom, you're told you have to wait. At least they usually alternate Saturdays so you sometimes get a full weekend off.

Pros

The coworkers

Cons

Short breaks, no time to hydrate.

Good place to work if you never want to be home

horrible place to work. No life outside of work. Management tries to get you to do there job and stay late all the time. They say they will move you up and they never do. Only good thing from this company is the healthcare

Pros

Health care

Cons

No life outside of LG, Horrible pay.

No Foundation just do same thing over and over,,,,

The Lg has a vision,,,poorly executed and they just keep making mistake after mistake and just keep doing it over & over! Old CEO was horribleThe new CEO is Great but has himself surrounded by Yes men and number Changers to make plant look good to HQ.Its going to take many years for them to get the QC and manufacturing systems to work for a real profit.

Pros

nice building and machines

Cons

total lack of any leadership and HR is Horrible.

Life could be better

Not sure what more needs to be said about this place. It seemed like a dream job, to be part of a manufacturing setting with a large notable company. It quickly became a nightmare, with constant issues from staffing shortages (both laborers and fellow engineers), to issues involving constantly breaking machinery. LGs solution to most issues was to throw people at the problem, and given the people shortage it always meant long hours (a typical day would start at 6:30 AM and end at 9 PM). The HR and management kept trying to create this creepy cult vibe of convincing staff that they were family, while keeping them separated from their actual families and would also demand retribution from the employees, in the form of either write ups or increased hours. Overall it wasn't the worst place to work, but life was far from good at LG.

Pros

Process Healthcare

Cons

Work Life Balance

not a bad place to work if all uou like to do is work

Its a good place to work it you like to live at work. No leeway when it come to personal life. If you miss you get pointed. And you pretty much work 6 days out of the week.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

no personal life

Stressful and the pay isn't worth it

Not a place to work. You only make decent money if working 50 or 60 hours a week. No home life at all. They always want more work, and very rude. Run.

Free health benefits are great. Work-life balance is awful

If you need medical benefits, this is a perfect place to work because they’re free. Otherwise, long hours and minimum compensation is what’s offered by the company.

Pros

Free benefits

Cons

No work-life balance

Supervisor played favorite

Worst place ever worked. Supervisor and management that are not Korean do not know how to do their job without lying. Get better people in positions that’s first

Pros

Insurance

Cons

Short breaks and favortisim or nepotism

Too many hours

No work / life balance. Expect at a minimum of 12 hours per day for salaried workers. Good technology is in place - robots, AGV's. Way too many managers over the same area.

Pros

Free healthcare. Very good insurance plan

Cons

Too many hours at work

Pit of despair

Work life balance is a myth at LG. All that matters there is their numbers. People are machines that they just run down then replace. One good thing is you get insurance that is company paid. Good luck ever using it, especially for your family.

Pros

insurance

Cons

They will work you to death for their numbers and don't care about their employees

Not much to say, long hours, and work every other weekend

Not much to say, long hours, and work every other weekend. Its a job with free healthcare could be better and moving up in the company. Also work 10 hours on a Saturday is not the move. Especially when you work from 630 til 530 Monday thru Friday

Pros

Ok pay

Cons

Long hours

LG manufacturing plant in Clarksville, TN is poorly managed. The leadership is terrible and the HR Department does not care for their employees.

Working at LG means not having a life outside of LG. The plant is run poorly by the leaders. People are treated disrespectfully and employees are not appreciated. Working long hours and under stress from the moment you walk in until you leave. This includes all salary and hourly employees.

Pros

Great benefit package

Cons

Long working hours, poor management, unorganized

Toxic work environment

Many salaried positions are not paid in line with industry standards. When you are hired you are told by HR that you will work 40 hrs and little to no weekends. That is a lie and they know it. You are paid for 40hrs a week but expected to work over 60. There are no advancement opportunities. And they do not care about a work life/family life balance. Never agree to a salary. I do not recommend any job here at this factory.

Pros

None

Cons

Short notice about having to work Saturdays, many Koreans do not speak English

It needs improvement

Koreans care about their units and that’s it. The parking lot is long and so is the walk in the building. They expect you to give up your entire life for this job. Do not recommend job.

Assembler (former)

Worst company to ever work for (unless you have no other choice) it’s favoritism the Koreans treats Americans like we’re trash wouldn’t recommend anyone to work here unless you have no other choice the only plus is the free benefits but you can hardly use them cause you work 6 days a week and they rarely approve your PTO unless your buddy buddy with the supervisors

Pros

Benifets but hardly use them due to overtime

Cons

Everything from Koreans to managmeny

Here and there .

Overall there could be changes . Depending on the position given you can have a pretty easy job or a difficult One. The team leaders really care about the goal and THATS ALL. Something major has to happen for them to actually care about the well being of the employees . Me personally never had that issue but with all of the “benefits” given you don’t really have the chance to use them .. dental , eye , clinic .. you don’t get to use those . A lot of people are risking their jobs missing days due to not being able to meet these appointment standards. For Lg employees the pay is not bad but for the temp workers it could be better . They don’t necessarily give to much incentive to people when it comes to promotions , raises and better positions . That is my reasoning for a three start rating . Thank you for the opportunity but it is not enough in this society/time for a single man to live on his own comfortably .
