Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Cleveland, MS – April 9, 2014
Pros: television in break room, great training
Cons: no cafeteria
Joining the Faurecia work place was a great and educational process. The training was difficult but educational and beneficial to the company overall success. The company trained on Microsoft office, efficiency, quality and overall safety. The management team change frequently due to inability of quality in certain production areas but overall was great – more... individuals. My co-workers also change frequently due to inability to consistent build quality products. The hardest part about my job was training new employees that don't understand the automotive process. I enjoyed all the friendly people and management staff. – less
Gap leader (Current Employee), Saline, MI – March 28, 2014
There have been a lot of changes going on. Peoples mind sets are still revolving around past employers of this plant. management has great intentions and dreams for this place but the supervisors and line workers make it hard for the right change and maturity to take form in this plant. it's size is also crippling its improvement rate.
supervisors dating workers, messy employees, no support from management. They also try to regulate restroom breaks
Machine Operator/ Team Leader (Current Employee), Cleveland, MS – March 3, 2014
Pros: health benefits to fulltime employees+
Cons: no restroom breaks other than regular break
Management Sucks! The managers hold personal vendettas with the operators and issue disciplinary action on them with little poof of an issue having being occurred. Management upholds wrong doing. These people are crazy because they mistreat their workers yet the workers are producing the parts. Why trust that?! I believe that something really bad will – more... happen in that plant dealing with the lively hood of those individuals whom don't care about anything. They do not allow operators to use the restroom other than breaks. – less
Production Coordinator (Current Employee), Saline, MI – February 26, 2014
Pros: work environment
Cons: longer work days do to down time but you have to make the customer happy.
We start off the day with no shipping racks and when we do get racks we're down because injection molding press is down or producing bad parts and it just seems like another day in life here. My co-workers are pretty cool. I enjoy the workers, they make you laugh with some of the stories they tell when we're waiting on racks.
Team Leader (Former Employee), Palmela – February 26, 2014
Pros: good team, wonder ful to be with everyday.
Cons: the pressure when ever we had a production problem.
Start of with the the team meeting known as "top 5". In this meeting we would start with a physical exercise "stretching", after we would go threw the problems and the goals achieved the day before. We would then start with the production according to "just in time" sequence. During the day I would have to teach, substitute,operatives.Update quality, – more... scrap, production and charts. Attend meetings with the supervisor and production manager. Any part with defect I would have to repair or scrap it if the case. Also when ever a problem occurred with a machine I would have to try and solve or else call in the maintenance. As we worked just in time we would have to be aware with the amount of parts in the buffer and be sure that they would be on time at the client, when ever we had a production problem. – less

Assembly Technician (Current Employee), Canton, MS – January 6, 2014
Pros: don't have to worry about layoffs.
Cons: sometimes breaks are cut short
I work from 7pm to 7am six days a week. I learned how to make seats and inspect a variety of seats. The management and my co-workers were very helpful with teaching me teamwork and tips to ensure safe and quality seats. The hardest part of my jobs is when our seats are to be done back to back in a short period of time. The most enjoyable part of the – more... job are to people. They can make your time easier. – less
Welder/Operator (Former Employee), Franklin, OH – December 22, 2013
Pros: great, motivated people, great pay
Cons: long hours
I started out as an operator on various machines that started the assembly process. I operated the first machine on a particular assembly line. This machine usually consisted of initiating an automated machine to construct a muffler. Once the muffler is completed I removed the muffler and moved it onto the next part of the process. I usually had to – more... operate two or three automated machines. Each assembly line had a target number to reach each day. The target numbers were hit more often than not by the company overall each day. I then signed up for a welders training and company certification class given at the facility. For almost two weeks a group of us went through the training and were tested for certification at the end of training. I was selected and moved onto an assembly line, no longer as an operator but as a welder. I maintained this position for almost eight months. I worked long hours for six to sometimes sevens days a week. – less
