For those in the Automotive Industries.......I HATE VENDORS, THE LIARS CAN NEVER DELIVER ON TIME, THE PRICE CHANGES FROM ONE MINUTE TO THE NEXT AND WHEN YOU CALL FOR TECH HELP YOU TALK TO SOMEONE IN SOME FAR AWAY LAND THAT HAS NO IDEA THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PLC AND A WELD GUN. AAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH !!!!!!!!!

Well if the automotive companies kept the job here in the USA we wouldn't have that problem.. It would also help if they paid the vendors on time and not 6 months down the road have to negotiate what you will take rather than the full bill...Hire cheap help.. get shitty service.. You got question we got answers.. :-D

I'm in the middle, my company supplies special machine/tooling. I have to deal with the Auto Companies, then I have to deal with the vendors they tell me to deal with. All this for a measley 10%. I call bull shit !!!!!!! In the past 2 years one program for DCX I have submitted cost to DCX for 21m after negotiation and reductions I got 18.2m. That's a net loss of 2.8m in 2 years, and they wonder why the U.S. compaines are closing their doors. I used to love this industry, after 21 years in it I can't stand it.
