My job at Lear was fun and I learned every job on the line.
Assembler (Former Employee), Ajax, ONOctober 21, 2015
Pros: Very fun place to work. Supervisors respected all hard workers
Cons: none
I worked on an assembly line at Lear and I loved all of the people there. We would help each other get the job done. The supervisors were very fair and appreciated a good worker. I never let them down. I came in early or stayed late because I liked my job so much. There was really no hard job there once you learned it.

Manufacturing Job
Car Seat Assembler (Former Employee), AjaxNovember 12, 2013
A typical day is standing in front of an assembly line and make sure that you are not holding the line. I learned how to work fast with accuracy, without this skill working in an assembly line will be impossible. This was only a summer job.

Materials/Production Supervisor - St. Thomas (Former Employee), St. Thomas, ONSeptember 6, 2012
For the better part of eighteen years I managed and directed 16 to 32 people within a JIT environment, in both production and material handling. I learned the values of respect, both giving and receiving, and the importance of keeping and maintaining a clean, safe work environment. Managers did not micro manage, but allowed you to make decisions regarding your job. It is important to establish a working relationship with co-workers and to give assistance if needed. Like most jobs, motivating workers requires constant need, and the most enjoyable part was to have workers dedicated to their job and duties.

Having to watch what you say to whom you say it too is bad. If someone didn't like you or felt threatened by you, they would try to make your life misserable.
