Car Seat Assembler (Former Employee), Ajax – November 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, ON – September 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 – more... 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. – less

Production Worker (Former Employee), Newark, DE – November 30, 2013
Pros: good enviorment to work close to home.
Cons: long 12 hr days and 6 days a week.
A typical day at Lear was very enjoyable. I learned a lot of different jobs while I was there and got certified to drive the forklift and high low. Management was also good to work for they would always be willing to work with you and teach you different things. I also enjoyed the people I worked with, we would joke around and that would make the long – more... days we had to work go along pretty well. The hardest part of the job was the long days and on the production line using the different tools twisting and pulling would take a toll on you at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and the whole atmosphere at work. – less
