Stressful with Little Recognition!
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) – Concord, CA – September 7, 2016
If you enjoy being treated with disrespect and overburden with work with no clear direction, then this is place to be! You'll be thrown in the chaotic work and expect to survive.
Management on a whole is OK but that doesn't mean they'll accompany you with your tasks. IF needed, they won't hesitate to yell at you to get the job done (or complain to your manager). If you don't enjoy working with your manager then you're out of luck. Written warnings are given and if you accumulate 3 "Write-Ups", your OUT. Besides that, you'll work for your manager and ANY other manager that delegates work to you through your manager as delegating work is very popular in the Concord site. Plus you'll be attending countless meetings that are almost worthless.
Lastly, there are countless shifting priorities and no set schedule. You'll need to have excellent time managing skills if you are going into Engineering or into the Planning/Buyer Groups. Parts will be lost/Scrapped or out of spec and you'll need to know what to do in such situations with very strict deadlines.
