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. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
