I was let go on a point system violation. When I began work at the plant, I contracted the flu. things went far worser as my first two weeks came to an end. It was mandatory for an employee not management to work 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. It was winter and my first in years. As I stated, I had just accepted the job. Working a hard job and getting rest was hard with a family. The first two weeks I had the flu, but later (because I wasn't allowed to plan time off) I also contracted bronchitis and pink eye in both eyes, by the time I had finished the 14th day at work, I was dragging my body around. I never lost pace nor let anyone down working as a Senior Maintenance Tech. As my counterpart would tell me every day at shift change, "You look like a dead man walking." With not being allowed to take time off and being a new job, I felt that the company would be sympathetic, seeing me in that state. Good luck with that, my friend told me. with family need events leading up to my dismissal I had pointed out as night shift SMT. My children were the last straw. The Bullet Co. School system required that students take a physical every year. I was notified in March about this. A deadline in April made it imperative for me to get this done or kids would be left out of their education for the year or until they pass the exam. I tried to schedule time off, a vacation day, and a friend to cover for me as I have done for the friend many times. All I needed was two hours off. It was a doc
No concern for the well being of employees and staggering mismanagement
Faurecia in Columbus, Indiana, is poorly managed and operates at a level of incompetence that is staggering. Their inability to schedule or plan is a determent to the equipment required to complete tasks, and more importantly, it’s employees health and well-being. Faurecia management does not seem to understand the basic concept that machinery (and people) cannot be run 24/7 without time for proper maintenance/downtime. This causes the equipment to fail DAILY, for hours at a time which in turn causes the employees to be unable to reach their goals thereby requiring them to work more hours. The management has absolutely no regard for any of their employee’s health or well being. They work months on end, 12 hours a day, with NO TIME OFF (not even Sunday). More than half of the employees exhibit behavior of chemical dependency, including management (which very recently was at least in part the cause of an employee severing fingers). Most employees are so exhausted they are in danger of making mistakes and potentially endangering themselves and others. The management doesn’t even have the common sense enough to know that you cannot allow over half of the employees take a week off at the same time, who all run the same shift and the same line without negitively impacting every shift and employee remaining. Then are upset and surprised when the remaining staff cannot meet their goals. The executive management at this company apparently do not understand that if you have happy, rest

Consno concern for the well being of their employees
Management is awful. Was told in our morning meetings that we all were replaceable. 12 hour days, sometimes telling a shift they have to work another half shift, so some days were 16 hours, minimum 5-6 days a week. That lasted about 8-9 months before I left. Was there for a couple years, and management did nothing to improve work environment. When mentioned, or safety problems shown, was told they would take care of it, then ignore it. Then they add senseless block offs so toy have to walk around or it makes your job harder. They refuse to listen to any improvement ideas, then complain about a problem that improvement idea would solve.
They add nonstop stress. There is a reason in the past year or so, thryve lost so many long time employees, some having 10-20 years seniority. They treat employees so awful, that they dont even have enough people to work whole shifts, constantly making people work 6 days a week by making our normal 4 day week, become 6 by making us from other shifts come in and work empty spots on other shifts.
Management is the biggest issue at this simpsonville plant.
HR is awful as well. Text, no answer, and half the time voicemail was full when I needed to get a hold of them. So you have to wait week or weeks to get an answer. Very unprofessional for an HR department.
The pay was decent enough, but when you get told thst they dont care about your family time, it doesnt matter to them. You just need to show up to work.

Faurecia is a nice and interesting place to work. they also like to feed thier workers
My day will start when I punch in and then I go to my locker, get the things I need for my line and workers. Then I meet with supervisor to discuss whats going on for the day, if anything important happen on the previous shift that I may need to tell my crew, get paper work, and any other updates. Then I go to the dock area where the stock is to take inventory of whats there and compare it with whats needed to get the orders filled and loaded and out on time. Then I go to the line or work area and talk to the GAP Leader( group of autonomous production) from previous shift to ask how thier day went. Then have a top 5 meeting with the gap which is a 5 min meeting to let the gap know of whats going on, whats needed for the shift, safty, and production numbers from previous day and then get work started. What I did learn from the company is organization, cleanliness and teamwork. I have gad supervisors that knew thier job and made sure they help you understand. My co-workers, some of the werent the best, but we all had an agenda and this to produce quality product and get the production numbers for the day.The only hard part of working is running out materials to do the job. The most enjoyable part is knowing the you have meet your goals for the day.
Things that were said in interview, such as climate controlled, were lies. Temps inside are usually around 90 degrees with spikes up to 120 on hot, humid days. The lies don't stop, ever. Never assume that what they tell you is true. Free lunches are a plus, if you like veggie burgers. Otherwise the cafeteria is pricey. Component shortage is a constant problem, making lines shut down during the week, in turn making Sunday work inevitable. The only shift that has weekends off is A shift (days), which consists of the people who have the most seniority. But that isn't always the case. The company can put new people on day shift and say its temporary to get around the union rules. I have seen a new hire work on day shift for several months because it was "temporary". The contract between the company and the union is almost complete garbage. There are so many clauses to protect the company and to let the company conduct business as they see fit. Basically every union rule has a clause that the company can use to override the contract. And even if they blatantly disregard the contract, there is nothing that the employees can do about it because of the "No Strike Agreement". I am personally still employed there because the higher pay makes you feel trapped, but I am very actively looking for something else. As are a lot of others.
Faurecia Saline Plant - Great Pay / Great People / Management difficulties
I enjoyed my time working at the Faurecia Saline Plant.
The work included was simple but challenging in that there were quotas of parts required that our teams had to produce.
Co workers, were for the most part a joy to work with, many work relationships turning into friendships or positive acquaintances.
Supervision and leadership were generally pleasant to deal with,
work teams were facilitated by Gap Leaders that were knowledgeable and generally approachable.
In my time there I helped to achieve a record number of PPM built and sent to our customers without defects, an achievement that was well noted through management.
The hardest part of being employed with Faurecia was the scheduling for our respective department, including uncompromising weekend shifts, mandatory overtime which if refused resulted in the accrual of attendance points, frequent changes in supervision, inconsistency in company policies, and the threat of losing your job through health related circumstances within or outside of the plant.
Best part of the job, was the relationships with the people there.
ProsPay and People
ConsManagement, Scheduling, Human Resourses, Point System, Wavering Incoherrent Policies, Compromised Union
Started off as a good company with lots of potential. The management and engineering teams can do no wrong. The lies and hypocrisy really makes you feel like they want to succeed. Maintenance gets their hands tied on what they are aloud to do to fix equipment, they wont allow access to what little parts we have, and dont want let the techs bring in their own tools but in the same token wont provide tools that are needed to get the job done ie. Multimeters, hammers, screwdrivers... yes we dont have screwdrivers. They say at one point they are not tracking time and they next minute write up an entire maintenance shift for not having any time on work orders for 2 hours when they're were no calls and no parts available to complete the work that was left. It's a joke when the management wont hold each other accountable but blames the hourly for the failures in management duties. The manufacturing manager over maintenance tells union personnel they are not allowed to conduct union business on company time. The point is the lies and hypocrisy know no bounds with no accountability with the management team, not the supervisors, the management.
ProsMost of the hourly employees feel the same about the cons.
Consbad union, bad management, lies, and hypocrisy.
This company is the most disorganized place i've ever seen. The supervisors and gap leaders are poorly trained and have no clue what is happening and are about as sharp as a marble. If you ask them a question about the job they have to get on their phone and text or call 15 people to find out. And even then don't have an answer. And if your running a test product, you can forget about going on break. They say you have a 10 min break but technically you only get about 6 mins. They have no planning capabilities at all. You just run one product until they run out in another department, then it's a big rush to catch up all because they don't know how to plan and be prepared . My toddler is more prepared than the gap leaders and some supervisors. On the up side, the employees on some lines are very friendly and helpful. Although there are some that are creepy. You have to go through a temp company and one of them are just as disorganized. You have NO time off for family at all. You could be in the hospital with a full body cast on and they would still expect you to come in and work 25/8. I would not recommend my worst enemy to work at this place. VERY disappointed. This company's incompetence level is off the charts. Top 5 my butt.
● Work-life balance
Horrible management. Lack of concern for employees' health and little true organization on how to best complete work assignments. Pay is great and there are a few outstanding gap leaders. In my short time there I saw that the best candidate for promotion was never promoted.
● Pay & benefits
To me it isn't worth the hassle. If you can weld you can find a better work environment. That doesn't affect your health adversely.
● Job security and advancement
You do have job security. Faurecia's training is a joke. It is all about speed. Advancement is not something to look forward to if you are competent. Be subpar and you are sure to grow within Faurecia.
Sad situation. I do not know how the company has survived...well the pay. A few were improving their communication skills and cultural understanding, but mainly management appears racist. Why does management not fix the things that slow production and injure employees?
It will make you bitter if you are not vigilant. Prayer and meditation is a must working here.
The benefits and pay are great. But not worth the hassle and hurt of working there. Unless you have other factors that dictate needing the benefits offered.
Faurecia Lansing is a growing JIT (Just In Time) factory since 2007. The company as a whole is a great company with great morals, standards and background. The Lansing Facility has much growing to accomplish with professionalism and management. The team has been trying to turn this factory around many times but everytime it usually ends up involving corporate management involvement. For two years I have been juggled back and forth from Supervisor to Material Planner because I have to go to the position or area I am needed. This sort of inconsistancy is what is driving me to look for a different career oprotunity. The most thrilling part of my job is working with the people on the shop floor. Training them in the right way of working and how keeping to a standard actually makes the job easier. I want employees to feel comfortable and safe at work. This is what makes me feel important as a Supervisor. As a Material Planner the involvement with suppliers and customers really is the best part of the job. Working with each one to better not only my company but other companies as well and work together to have a growing relationship.

Firstly you must go through a very vigorous welding "course" to re-learn how to weld, even if you have 25 years experience the instructor will talk to you as though it is your first day at any job. If you make it past that, without walking out, your in for a surprise, at first it seems like a good place, you quickly learn it is a very bad working environment, For starters if your a welder, you won't weld until you learn how to kiss the "team leaders" a**. At first you will be a machine operator, they won't give you a chance to weld because of favoritism, next be prepared for a super human work pace environment, meaning you have to weld faster than any robot, the tolerance for the welds is very small, yet you only have seconds to perform miracles, physically it is impossible to accomplish what they want you to do, but the team leaders earn extra money to push you without crossing the abusive barrier. The work site is hot, very hot, they don't even give you a chance to stay cool or hydrated, you will work 3 hours non stop and then get a 10 min break. Also if you are early for work, you will be punished. You have to be there exactly at shift start, if you are early they will scream and yell at you, scold you in the office, and degrade and humiliate you so you understand you are nothing but a stupid welder. Be prepared to be treated like a dog. I would rather cut my hands off then go work there again for another minute. They are like a little click, if you don't conform to there

As off January 2018 I worked a Faurecia in Fradley..
My first 3 days were awful!!! I worked on Assembly & hated it as I'm more of an active move around kind if person, so eventually they moved me on too Logistics which I loved!!!! But then after couple weeks off being there things started changing as I wanted too train onto something else other then moving boxes.
The people are very nice there the Gapleaders are sly and cuniving!!! They say they have your back but really when it comes down too the crunch there the first ones too throw u under the bus! They don't care about your health or you yourself... I had 2days off in 6 weeks due too anxiety! And one day where I went in & had too go home due too anxiety... I then received a disciplinary hearing for this itself!!! I was told I could have another sick day off for the next 6 months! Or it could result in losing my position. I felt as if the supervisor and Gap leader were both on my case after that... They took me off moving boxes & couldn't find me a job do hoteme doing odd jobs here & there... I was told by few people be careful as they are sacking people as there not doing too great atm... The next day I forgot my steel toe cap boots & they sacked me!!!
& put it down too steel toe caps...
The next day one of my friends informed me that on my last day a 'sly picture" was took of us while was in our phones 15 mins before the end of the shift which is completely against company policy and goes against the

Faurecia is the final client of NSIS (IT Service Company) which is my initial employer.
I started working in Faurecia since 2010 as external consultant to ensure support activity for more than 19000 SAP users all over the world.
I start my day at work by checking the emails and tickets assigned to my group. I have to keep an eye on tasks with high priority, especially, in month end closing.
Every day it's a new challenge as I have to provide always expert advice on SAP functionality and how to use the business processes
From this experience, I learned the best ways to solve the problems and how to make the ideas look simple for L2 by providing examples and screenshots. I learnt to be autonomous and to learn on the fly.
Regarding the management competencies, the continuous improvement in a multinational company is a must. We have to be up to date to the customer's new projects.
With my co-workers, we usually work with the approach of one team. We usually share the knowledge and self experiences with tickets analysis in some critical areas.
The hardest part of the job is the reactivity and the ability to work under initiative and under tight time pressures with little guidance.
We have to provide the solution just in time using all the ways (confcalls, work instructions, best practises ...)
The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of users after hard work of diagnose and analysis and the working environment that encourages innovation, creativity a
Le service est scindé en 3 parties.
Les anciens dont certains sont devenus manager grâce au copinage et qui passent leur journée à buller entre leur bureau et la cafetière (quand ils ne prétextent pas travailler depuis chez eux).
Les informaticiens proche de la retraite qui sont constamment harcelés par les sus-nommés.
Les nouveaux, venus du service hotline ou intérimaires qu'on exploite nuit et jour pour un salaire de misère.
Comme partout, il faut se méfier de certains collaborateurs qui ont compris comment obtenir de l'avancement en marchant sur les autres mais en dehors de ce type là il existe une vraie solidarité entre tous les employés qui sont dénigrés, rabaissés mais qui n'ont pas d'autre choix que de continuer à travailler dans cette ambiance.
Les possibilités d'avancement sont réelles mais uniquement au niveau du travail, votre salaire ne changera pas à moins de vous lancer dans une véritable bataille psychologique avec vos managers.
Le salaire moyen d'un administrateur technique SAP est identique à celui d'un hotliner soit 1300€ nets!
Promesses non tenues, déception et harcèlement sont les seuls mots qui me viennent après 5 années passées au sein de ce service.
Les postes pourraient être intéressants mais avec des managers incompétents, la manière dont nous sommes traités, le manque de reconnaissance après tout le temps consacré au travail, souvent pris sur notre temps personnel qui ne nous est jamais payé, est tout simplement écœurant.
