Overall Reviews at Yazaki
Component Engineer | Canton, MI | Feb 6, 2020
Interesting work with little prospect of job advancement
It was a fun company to work at, however, when asked about promoting to a full-time position, I was not given a clear response. Later found out, they never had plans to convert me to a full position.

I was not impressed working for Yakaki
In the auto industry the security of your job is frequently in jeopardy and as such had a culture that was not conducive to a helpful work environment,

A Work Day
Day started at 8:00 a.m. - Maintain, update and distributed scheduling and tracking information on all material. Prepared support documentation for management meetings.
Use of the Chrysler supplier portal and program management tools.
Management was supportive and the workplace culture was inclusive.
Hardest part of the job was the commute.
Most enjoyable was communicating results to upper management.
ProsStrong management team

Insurance 90%paid but income is awful
AYC has many good people. They are behind the times. No advancement because very small. No pay increases. Not even equal amongst the area. Management is extremely strict and can be unpredictable.
ProsFlexible time for office staff only

It was a great stepping stone to my future
T provided a review of this company would be inappropriate. Times and employees have changed since my employment. It was a great place to work and wish the company all the best.

My review would be based on decades old information
I can not provide a adequate opinion about American Yazaki Corporation as it has been decades since I worked there. Stating anything other than a fair non-biased review would be inappropriate.

Good work environment, but fast paced/stressful.
Yazaki was a good place to work for many years (25+) for me. It started to get to be to long of a commute, and too stressful, and I decided to look elsewhere, closer to home.
Management varied from Job to job, with most being pretty good at what the were doing.Workplace culture was serious, but relaxed on a day to day.
The hardest part of myjob(s) was(Were) that we Always seemed to go from one "Time Crunch" to another most of the time. With little "Everyday" workflow.
The most enjoyable part of the job, was all of the great people I worked with!
ProsGood people, Great benefits
Systems Lead for Instrument Clusters | Canton, MI | Jan 21, 2019
Attend meetings, consult with customer, perform some testing, update requirements for manufacturing.
Hardest part of the job is working with Japan to release documents because of the language barrier. Getting resources to work on your project is challenging because sometimes there are too many projects with higher priority, yet you are expected to deliver on time.
ProsRelaxed atmosphere, good work life balance, decent pay
ConsToo much scrutiny on number of hours worked, coming in time, time spent on phone if any etc. as compared to productivity

it was a nice place to work but didn't get paid enough, I learned a few things, the hardest part it was that mostly of the time I would come out late from there.
Prosno free lunches

A Changing Company
Yazaki is in the midst of major organizational and company direction changes. There is unrest and uncertainty but the strategy/plan is public. Everyone knows what is happening and why it is required.
