Lear is a JIT company , fast paced with focus on quality and delivery to ensure customer satisfaction. Management encouraged speed but not at the expense of quality. Make it the right way then gain speed

Very toxic work environment, lots of drugs and inebriated individuals operating machinery and equipment. Managment turns a blind eye due to the union.

Employees drinking on the assembly line demanding more money. Management doesn’t care about safety or people being drunk at work. So much harassment and nothing being done about it

Over 3 decades working at Lear with many ups and downs over the years in the auto industry.

The place will be missed by many that still needed their jobs as they are unable to retire.

I worked at Lear for 8 years. It was the best job I will ever have had, the work, the people, the environment, the pay, the benefits. Everything about that place was amazing. Unfortunately due to GM closing, Lear was shutdown as well.

Review is irrelevant .. Plant Clousure. Lear will not be conducting business in Canada in the near future. The Ajax plant will no doubt be done in a couple of years.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Not treated well

Very fast paced work for the min wage for a couple years if they make it that long. The new people do all the work and when its done they all watch the new people sweep and clean even after a hard demanding shift.

Due to customer closing i was out of a job. I enjoyed working at lear ,some jobs were relatively easy but some were hard on your hands and arms. The company recently started a job rotation which eased the stress on certain parts of the body

It's a place that seniority rules the balance between workers are unfairly organized, new employees have to work just as hard and get a half of the pay as someone who has been working for longet time . Your position can be taken from you and give to someone who has more seniority. The benefits are good the pay for new comers do not justify today costs of living.

Stay Clear.. there is no reason in the world you would want to work here. Treated like garbage by the quality manager. Most management as well as Corp level managers don't care about their employees, even though they say they do. Stay out of the auto sector.

A typical day is repeating the same movements every minute. I learned that they teach you that you can refuse unsafe work because there will be times that you think something could potentially cause you harm, and then you tell someone but nothing will get done about it until you refuse to continue. management is either unqualified or look down at you. you will experience hearing loss.

This was a good place to work until GM decided to leave Oshawa and forced thousands out of work. Lear should have had other car companies to keep the facility open.

It was a great place to work for the first 15 years and then it quickly started going downhill. Every time we are up for a new contract the company is always pulling stuff back and threatening to close the plant if we don't capitulate.

Lear has provided me with a few opportunities for growth, for example as team leader. A typical day currently has me arriving for aa 6:30 am start with a 3:00 pm end. I am responsible for the building/assembly of the front seat backs including the safety feature of the airbag.
Pros
Provides routine, good working conditions & friendly environment
Cons
No room for advancement
