Full Time Line Operator (Current Employee), Bradford, ON – October 12, 2014
Pros: they handed out bonuses every 6 months and we had free lunches on hoildays, the benifits are great and the pension are good.
Cons: long hours at times and lots of week-end over time which i found hard on the family life, i do understand how the industry works and what is requirered to surport customer demands.
To make quality parts while hitting hourly targets per hour, I have learned many things how to work a mig and robotic welders, how to use different tools to perform quality checks to spec, how to perform lockout procedures, FIFO (first in, first out). how to handle problems that arise on and off line. WIMS training. My co-workers to me make my day, – more... they play a big part of how a team will work good together. I found that the only thing that was hard about the job was the amount of overtime I had to put in over the years, I do like my over time. Once again I enjoyed working with the people they became a part of my extended family everyone gets along great there. – less

there was many different jobs withhin Faurecia. What i did before i was laid off was. handling the unpainted chair frames from the welder, and hanged them onto a conveyor. The chairs, then went around into a washer, a dryer, then a powder coat. The coat would be heated up in a oven than adhered to the metal that would produce a coat of paint.My fellow – more... employees and i would then take the final producct and organize then into the appropiate aisles I have learned how organization and team work is vital especially in a factory.I got along well with my coworkers, and is there was any inncidents i followed proper procedures, however i do prefer to deal with problems with other face on. I dont want to take about management. This was the only company that i know of that kept the doors locked to the HR office. to employees. After over ten years, I have to say that its the people that made it enjoyable – less

Cons: bad management
shift patterns are rotational 6-2 2-2200 2200-6 and required to work Saturdays on 6-2 shift I found in my 2 years there that the life/work balance was not the best due to work commitments its fast paced from start of shift till finish with hourly targets needing to be met but I liked that part of the job it might be to much for some as the factorys – more... like a conveyer belt people come an go there constantly.I learned to preposition an spray there but ended up bein stuck on sprayin simply cuz no one else would do the job.The management there are shocking probably the worst ive experienced in 17 years working and the majority of the staff are eastern European polish,latvian etc – less
Quality Inspector (Former Employee), Cottondale, AL – August 21, 2014
The most enjoyable part was some of the people that i worked with and the fact that sometimes i worked alone. Some of the management was very immature at that time, didn't like that at all. I learned how to really pay attention to small details and could spot an imperfection a mile away.
IT Support / Site Administrator (Former Employee), Southfield MI – August 1, 2014
Pros: decent compensation
Cons: french based company that doesn't have much regard for anyone that isn't french.
Most dysfunctional place i've ever worked in my life. Terrible communication, no sense of vision, and I lost track of how many people were fired from there. No regard for developing employees, just a burn em and turn em mentality. Not recommended for the career minded, or for anything other than a temporary oasis from the fray while looking for a company – more... that actually values its employees. – less
