Not very good

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Irving, TX (US)

I have been working at Nissan as a contractor

ProsI am a temp that have been there a year. And the only pro I seeis that I have a job.

ConsThe pay is not good compared to the work they are asking for.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are asking for the same quality of work from your temps as the permanent employees. Then your pay and benefits should be closer to Nissan employees. And I think you should look at the fact that you are interviewing temp for positions they are already doing. Which seems to be unfair. Most companies will hire you after three mos. But Nissan have temps there for 2years that are still not permanent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company with opportunity for longevity

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Torrance, CA (US)

I worked at Nissan full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLoyal to employees create long tenures for employees. Many employees have worked with Nissan for more than 20 years. Even in times of financial recession the company worked hard to avoid layoffs for its employees.

ConsThough you may have the opportunity to stay with the company for a long time opportunity for advancement may be slim.

Advice to Senior ManagementNissan is a great place to work but would benefit from developing effective ways to develop and retain talent

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It was a great sales experience!

Car Salesman (Current Employee)

I have been working at Nissan full-time for more than a year

ProsI learned a lot work at nissan, great company to work for. The GM and GSM were great to work for.

ConsLong hours, sometimes you spend hours with a customer and they don't get anything. Customers would either want to buy and not be able to buy or waste your time.
