Easy work...but very repetitive . Get used to standing because they don't have many sit down jobs.. and the shoes you have to wear don't have any support. Management is a joke... some supervisors and line leads are bullies. Treat people like children. The work is fine but in my opinion very badly ran. They also don't care if your sick or have personal problems. You are replaceable!
The work is easy (but repetitive )
No talking, no radio, watching breaks, the safety shoes, low morale, everyone is misarable.. could go on...
In my experience Valeo was a good place to work if you're young and you're looking for somewhere that pays decent wages. But i believe the company is badly run and there was not enough emphasis on quality. The management didn't seem to care about the welfare of their employees and they were more concerned about making money. In my opinion they prioritised quantity over quality.
The company has a blame culture which has curtailed growth of individuals. This type of culture also stops problem solving as it dilutes the apitite of people to get to root cause.
Management are squarely to blame for this flaw. The fact that the company have a niche product is the reason for the substantial growth.
It was my first job that I worked in involving my degree. I had never worked in an office before so it was a big change. Since it was a was a multinational company I was trained correctly and showed proper operating procedures.
A brutal and unforgiving working culture. The management team is preoccupied with internecine warfare and poisonous personality conflicts. Stand-up shouting matches in the corridors are not unheard of. Some outright bullying and intimidation has occurred also.
The management team is very inexperienced and the workplace exists in a state of permanent chaos and crunch time
pay was ok for a 'no qualifications' sort of job
long unsociable hours, no job satisfaction, no job rotation, poor canteen food quality
Nice place to work in as System Test Engineer.
Had done quite a bit of traveling, worked with few teams internally and abroad..
Learned a lot of skills and gained quite few friends.
Because of Valeo developed an interest to a Automotive Industry.
1) Nice people to work with and socializing with, 2) Lots of knowledge gained, 3) Business Trips
Being a contractor. 1) No benefits, 2) Smaller Wage, 3) No official training provided, 4) Cutbacks losing the job.
Work can be very rewarding from a technical and academic point of view but workload was excessive which meant that although many opportunities were there you had to dedicate your complete life to the company in order to excel.
Benefits were a bit above average
Workload could be excessive and as management were overstressed leading to a chaotic shedule
I worked alongside 3 other people in a camera assembly cell. I had the pleasure working with some wonderful people, (both on night shift and my short time on day shift) my co-workers and supervisors whom I will miss.
