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 – 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

People are not all bad
Production Associate (Former Employee), St. Thomas, ONAugust 10, 2012
Pros: benifits
Cons: dirty
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.

Great pay and benefits, wide gap between execs and non-managements
Analyst (Current Employee), Southfield, MIAugust 24, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: fear of layoff at quarter end to make numbers
Major industry player, great opportunity to work globally in automotive industry. Despite record earnings every quarter since the 2009 downturn, future bonus formulas for non-executives have been cut. Lots of talk about being Employer of Choice, and The Leadership Model, but it feels like propaganda. Great for execs and college grads, not so much for – more... the mid-lifers. Also, to be global can require evening conference calls from home in addition to your regular work day. – less

Sr. Material Planner (Former Employee), Duncan, SCAugust 12, 2014
Pros: good learning environment.
Cons: expend-ability of employees. poor life work balance.
Good Company Learned a good deal in my tenure. Managers at the plant level are expendable and tend to be let go for issues that may or may not be in their direct control. This is the nature of tier One Automotive supply.

Not much job security.
