Sony moving 150 jobs to Terre Haute plant

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A plant closing in New Jersey will result in 150 jobs moving to Sony DADC's factory in Terre Haute.

The Terre Haute Tribune-Star reported Wednesday the Indiana plant will become Sony DADC's only U.S. compact disc manufacturing plant east of the Mississippi River.

Sony DADC earlier this month announced it would close its Pitman, N.J., plant March 31, cutting about 300 workers. That plant had produced, at its peak, about 16.5 million CDs per month.

The Terre Haute plant now employs about 1,150 workers. It also manufactures Blu-ray, DVDs and video games.


  • The Place is a TRAP!
    Sony Daddc in Terre Haute is not the place you want to work. THis whole 150 jobs opening. It will be for temps and temps only. A few seasonal might get full time but I doubt it.

    WHen you get the temp job they will tell you that you can get hired on. IT's crap been there for two years never offered anything. A few temps got seasonal but were hand picked by the best ass kisser to the supervisor. I've never been late only missed a few days every year. Never had a pay raise, or better job postion! They give full timers free dvds in front of us. THey say we can't have them cause we dont' work for sony. But we made them not the full timers.

    They make you feel like you're on the bottom of the food chain. Alot of full timers won't even talk to a temp. THey feel they are way above us and that we don't stand on the same scale as them. They treat us like we are dirt on the bottom of their shoes. They call us names and preferre to us as "Those people" or "THese people" you will hear these terms alot if you work out there. THey throw partys for the full timers only and we are not allowed to go. They had santa claus come in and take pictures with workers childeren. Full timers only again. Easter bunny did the same thing. FUll TIMERS ONLY. It's like the 50's in there temps on one side and full timers on the other side. Full timers won't even sit at the same table as a temp. They even think they have their own break room and that we should not come in it. I will say I am on nights I use to be on B shift and they are really bad about this. D shift on nights is not as bad. B shift will turn their nose up at you for coming in the down stairs break room by the machines. They say sometiems they shoudl not be in here. Way I see it is I work there too and even harder then them so why can't I!

    I just don't beleive all this new jobs coming cause it's a trap. If you want to be put down and never go anywhere with this job go for it. Maybe if you lucky and related to the HR guy he'll be able to get you on. I think his whole family works out there. None are temps or were and got fired and came back with a better job title. I hope this helps some of you out there. I only work there cause there is not alot of jobs here. No one is ever hiring and I know I have to do what I have to do. I don't want my child to go hungry or homeless. SO, yeah I eat the crap but I wish I didn't have to. I leave work alot feeling like a no body!

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
