Eaton is the best company to work for.
Eaton's work culture is the best thing I experienced. All the functions performed in the company are well organized, time bidden and safe working conditions. The manager i worked under was very friendly and accepting support staff, quality focused, quality with quantity.
Pricing Manager | Jackson, MI | Feb 28, 2020
Good company, team oriented, goal driven
Recently downsized workforce which eliminated my position without offering an alternative position in the company. Overall the company is a good company to work with, but not when it comes to downsizing due to short-term economic impacts.

Opex hours are great, 8 hrs a day, 5 days per week.
Answered Feb 25, 2020
Overbearing, difficult to plan social or family events, or continue education since weekend work is often sprung on you last minute. 8 hour days are looked down upon, even referred to as "leaving early".

What benefits does Eaton offer?
Asked Jun 28, 2016
I felt the benefits were GREAT, very competitive.
Answered Sep 29, 2019
Benefits are horrible. They say you will pay so much per week but take more out of your check. High deductibles and prescriptions are very expensive. Pay union dues to a union that cannot win against the company on anything. HR is useless with any help or questions on benefits, they tell you it's not their job to know.
