Line Worker (Former Employee), Brigham City, UT – December 17, 2013
I liked my job at autoliv and was sad to be let go. they have great benefits only for full time workers and not the temps witch they should give full benefits to as well a little less work drama would do the company great.
Concept Design Engineer/Manager (Former Employee), Japan – July 31, 2013
Pros: team environment
Cons: long hours
Management asked me back to assist in a project that was late. Sent to their site in Japan. Workforce is so motivated towards the company. Language was difficult but everyone was so helpful and obliging. Learning their ways in working and home life was eye opening.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Columbia City, IN – July 15, 2013
The company used positive reinforcement to get the job done. The employees where happy to work for a company that treated them like an important part of a team. The hardest part of the job was leaving when they moved the company out of state.
Production AMT (Current Employee), Brigham, Utah – March 28, 2013
Pros: benefits are amazing. pay is comparable to effort.
Cons: constant "peasant" archetype pressed onto personnel, lack of leadership from management shows.
A terrible place to work.
Typical day is 8.5 hours. They want you clocked in 15 minutes before the hour. You'll do average production work (not really hard) while getting micromanaged by supervision. Don't even think about getting a weekend off, be grateful you get Sundays off. I logged 240+ hours of OT last year.
The most important thing that I've – more... learned while working here is to keep to myself, as most of the workers view the plant as a second high school.
Management is anything but, as they are more concerned with cutting man-hours per unit than anything else (like safety, traceability, or quality). Family and friends will see preferential treatment over qualified personnel in this "good 'ol boy" hierarchy. All they care about is numbers, whether incoming (inventory) or outgoing (shippable parts). Anyone that doesn't have a desk job here is treated as an expense that the company needs to trim.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the constant double standards, which are not limited to: - Multiple sexual harassment instances hushed up, while maintaining a "Zero Tolerance Policy". - Training personnel to push out parts, regardless of quality and safety... while having them sign documentation of the opposite. - "Don't shake the vending machines, you will be terminated immediately if caught" direct quote during orientation. Followed up by multiple witnesses reporting the HR manager doing so.
The most enjoyable parts of the job are building parts that (if built correctly) save lives, and clocking out for the day. – less

Quality Control Specialist (Former Employee), Indianapolis, IN – January 10, 2013
Pros: co-workers, great environment
My typical day at work includes maximum communication and concentration, I have to keep contact with trucker drivers as well as my fellow dock workers. On average each day I learn something new, whether it s a new name or a new procedure. My co-worker are amazing people and they are very professional and knows how to communicate effectively with each – more... other. the hardest part of my job is leaving in the afternoon without having all my tasks completed. The most enjoyable part of your job is satifying the customers needs, at the end of the day they make us who we are as a company. – less
Repetative job that was not bad, except for the management
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Ogden, UT – December 20, 2012
Pros: the place had a cafateria.
Cons: i was through a temporary agency and autoliv would rarly hire the temps to be perminent.
The work day consisted of using machinery to fold and assemble airbags for Dodge pickups. The only thing I learned on the job is how airbags are assembled. Management was the only real bad thing about this company, when I started my immediate manager was very rude and had no people skills to speak of. We had a quota and even when we hit our numbers – more... she was never happy and would complain about our performance. I requested to be moved off the line as I did not agree with how she treated me and my co-workers, needless to say my request was denied and a co-worker was moved instead of me. The hardest part of the job was working with co-works that would not pull their own weight so the rest of us had to work harder to compensate for the lack of production. What I liked the most was we had to work as a team, and when we had the right combination of workers the day went by fast and we had fun. Well as much fun as possible for being at work. – less
