Good place for recent college grads, horrible work-life balance.
Material Planner (Former Employee) – Madison, MS – November 10, 2016
Nice place if you're beginning a career in manufacturing. SAP experience provided here is very valuable and will take you far outside of the company. The compensation isn't worth what you give up in not having a life outside of FAS. The hours are ridiculous, and the work-life balance is the worst. Turnover is also extremely high. As soon as you get to know a co-worker or manager, poof they're gone. Career development is non-existent.This is a good job that will give you the experience needed to move into a more permanent role for another company.
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) – Columbus, IN – February 8, 2017
I have enjoyed working at Faurecia. I cannot begin to explain how much I have learned in my time here. Having minimal knowledge in a certain area when hired has greatly expanded over past several years. Truly, I believe those right out of college would benefit from this fast paced, learn-on-the-fly, atmosphere. I have only been employed at one plant and can only assume they are all the same.
Great benefits and truly like to promote from within if possible
High turnover recently causes some confusion in mamagement
Team Leader/ Welder (Former Employee) – Columbus, IN – January 18, 2017
Great place to work for benefits vacation the downside is that its hot and the 7 12 schedule. The schedule is really difficult to manage your time at home and work life. Be prepared for being tired hot and itchy depending on what department or line you are assigned to. Advancement is based on skill and seniority.
Operator (Current Employee) – Saline, MI – February 18, 2016
I started as a temp and was hired in after 90 days. This is somewhat rare as the company seems to like just re-hiring temps every 90 days instead of hiring someone officially, so as to not have to offer benefits. The work is easy but they have you work so many hours that you can't do anything outside of work. I consistently worked 72-80 hour weeks. The point system is standard in most work places but it's too strict here. You get 8 points but nothing excuses an absence. If a family member suddenly dies and you're out for a day you still get a point. All in all a great place to work for a while but not settle down with as a career. Work for a while here, get experience in the field, go to a better company like Ford
Fun environment. Decent pay. OT whenever you want.
Too much OT. No notice to shift changes or required OT. Usually let go after 90 days.
Production Control & Logistics Intern (Current Employee) – Michigan – April 28, 2016
I really enjoyed my time here at Faurecia. Great people and overall work culture. They are very good at making employees feel important and wanted. Faurecia management works hard to guide their interns to the right path. They see them as the future of the company so they are invested in young and innovative people.
Quality (Former Employee) – Michigan – February 17, 2016
This a horrible place to work especially in their quality department. The managers and directors will throw you under the bus at every opportunity to make themselves look good. They will also lay you off if there is any work slow down at all. They will also let you go if you have a life altering event and need to take some time off. As a person in their quality department you can count on travelling almost 100% of the time and will have no family life whatsoever. The managers and directors get bonuses but the worker bees get nothing.
Travel and no raises. Absolutely no percs whatsover.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Columbus, IN – December 20, 2016
Great pay good hours fun people. I worked there as a temp and really wished I could have kept that job because I know the really liked my work ethic. Due to my living situation at the time is what caused me to move back to ky. But overall, I saw potential for me to grow with the ompany and make a career out of it rather than just a temp job.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fraser, MI – March 31, 2016
A typical day at work would be me building, welding, wiring and racking consoles and glove boxes all day. Its more of a tedious job to handle. A lot of repetition action going on and assembly line configuring.
Hourly pay and raises were rapid for a certain period of time
