So Much work to get in there and they don't value their employees
Team Member/ Assembly (Former Employee) – Ridgeville, SC – 3 April 2019
Volvo is the hottest job in SC right now and they know it because people in the community is not use to the pay and the nicest car on the planet. I love volvo vehicles, I dreamt of this day and never thought i would be making them. Because I had a strong personality from all the sexism in there. I was targeted to get me out of the. It took 10 months to get in there with test, assessment and interviews. I am in tears everyday because HR let management dictate the lies they told to get me out of there because I was a woman. I was harass, discriminated and not treated fairly. I learned to do my station. They put people anywhere and only move the men. Its a very biased company. The management from Sweden are so sweet, but they let bad management take control. Employees are so in distress that they would leave the line and not come back. Some employees have Team Leaders that care you and help you grow. I was not fortunate. Its capable of being the best company to work for in SC. Too many mixed cultures and they dont care. Only numbers for the cars. Everyone makes mistakes in there and they are looking at the women on the line. Everyone is stress out, coming in doing drugs and drinking to block out the disparity. I am fighting to get my job back or reparations because I really worked hard and to get let go unfairly. I dont know how they are sleeping at night doing this to me. Good. Again high turnover rate and they dont care after all they invested.
leasing Volvo vehicles and good pay
too much overtime and they lie all the time about everything. No life, no 2nd shift for assembly workers, long walk to station, nothing is equal. Its the ball that you are bounced.
Quality processes, systems & tools (Former Employee) – Oost-Vlaanderen – 1 April 2019
prima bedrijf met duidelijke misie en visie, waarin de mens, zowel klant als medewerker, centraal staat. Goede ontplooings-mogelijkheden. Internationaal georienteerd met kansen op werk in het buitenland. Zeer leerrijk!

Poor management. No one there that's in a superintendent and up are qualified for their positions. They come up with processes that make your job unnecessarily tedious. They do not implement feedback from employees. HR lied and said that they rarely do overtime, yet my first day of the floor until I departed the company, I have worked mandatory overtime. 60 hours a week mandatory. They do not give you time off when you request it. They show favoritism to employees that suck up to them. They constantly threaten your job if you have an emergency and can't come in or need to leave. There is no work life balance. They do not care for their employees. All team members are expendable and not truly valued.
Paycheck is on time
Short breaks, management is poor, hr is poor, long hours, no time off, no appreciation
No idea what they are doing. Poor leadership, no direction. Lots of turn over in key areas. Directions and priorities change constantly and all key lead roles are folks from Sweden who don't know US business or workforce.
Montör (Former Employee) – Skövde – 3 January 2019
Jag hade en lärorik upplevelse då genom att öka förståelsen för hur fabriksarbete är samt hur fabriksarbete går till. Detta var helt nytt för mig och jag tycker att jag definitivt har gått därifrån med rikare kunskap.
Flexpool/timanställd (Current Employee) – Torslanda – 27 October 2018
Jag jobbade som flexpool på Volvo cars. Ansökte om jobberbjudanden i några veckor och dom hade inga arbetstillfällen för mig. Med tiden började dom ignorera mina meddelanden och svarar nu inte alls. Skulle lära mig att arbeta med bilarna men det slutade med att jag fick gå runt och städa hela tiden för att dom inte hade någon som kunde hjälpa mig.
