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

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.

Lear is a company with no room for advancement. Hard to talk to anymore in management if you have any questions or concerns. Happy to be employed but cant see myself as a Lear employee for years to come.

Design Manager (Former Employee), Southfield, MINovember 15, 2014
i have not worked at Lear since 2008. I am sure that the culture have changed. I started during the growth period and it was most exciting and provided me with room to grow and learn.
Lear was a company that was made of individuals not systems. A culture that promoted competitiveness and individual contributions.
