Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – October 3, 2016
At first it seemed like it'd be a good temporary job until something better came along, but everyday.. anything and everything was unorganized and the Management was horrible, they'd tell you one thing on this day and the next would be completely opposite.
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Township of Shelby, SD – April 20, 2013
No advancement for employees from within or wage increase. a typical day at work is no communication between management. I learned how to not trust or rely on others to educate you about you job duties. Management allowed the older employees to dictate how,when and where to place newer employees. Co-workers were a bunch of back-biters, unpleasant to work with. Hardest part of job, the older employees. I enjoyed working alone.
Go in at 5-6 in the morning and getting to my station and learned new parts for the car management were nice and worked with us very well my coworkers I got along with very well hardest part of the job was getting rushed at the last minute but I took it well the best part were we just enjoy each others company and work getting along with others
QUALITY INSPECTOR (Current Employee) – Shelby.Mi – June 27, 2012
I MOSTLY WORKED BY MYSELF. FILLED OUT DATA SHEETS.INSPECT 100 TO 1.000S OF PARTS. IF THE PARTS CAN BE REWORKED ITS DONE.NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE.ALL PIC PEOPLE CAN NOT DO THE SAME JOB.S IF YOU HAVE A BACKGROUND IN Fab,or Machine program/process.
Also I know that just not anyone is sent or called to a prototype shop.to fix parts.so I was bless to work with Nissan.Ford.GM.an Chrysler. management. to many people thinking of them self. but they did clean house!. the team work is job 1. everyone works well and others meaning new people pickup fast. there none unless you come into a place where no one knows where the parts are. what I love most about this job is knowing when these pats are added to a car or truck my mark is on it.
inspector (Former Employee) – West Chester, OH – February 15, 2015
I would start with staff meeting, find out the order that was to be inspected, the supervisor would show us the problems to look for and we would start inspecting. If I traveled to other assignments I would be given the issues with the parts by the supervisor of the assigned plant and I would then write up instructions on what too look for, the boundaries in which our criteria would be met, and if things changed i would make changes to our instructions and imform all my coworkers. I loved inspecting andd trying to help companies with their product.
loved traveling and the feeling that I could keep the company from passing bad parts to the consumer
I didnt like how my supervisor really wasnt attentive when i needed assurance about my instructions.
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Princeton, IN – December 30, 2013
We are often asked to go home early do to the lack of consistent work as well as being laid off several days out of a week. The management constantly complain about how people don't have their proper personal protective equipment, then hand us Kevlar gloves with holes to handle sharp metal parts.
Clean while waiting for the work to come through. Once the work comes through I begin parts inspection and organizing the parts. The end of my shift includes completing necessary paperwork and computer data entry.
Inspector/ sorter (Former Employee) – Chattanooga – February 11, 2015
I started work with the PIC Group in Chattanooga, TN. I thought it was going to be a nice place to work because it was at the Volkswagon plant. The night shift supervisor was very rude. One night I heard him tell a worker to "take your @@@ home". At times he would come up to me and state that I was not working fast enough. I told him I am meeting quota and he said that's minimum and that we pay you more than minimum wage. On another night A second supervisor called me over to ask about a task and after I answered her My supervisor told me to turn around and walk away. Later on that night I was assigned a different task. I did not fully understand what to do and it seemed like he didn't want to be bothered. He old me to go sit my @@@ down. At that point I collected my things and went home. I have a very good work history to include over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and have never been treated like this.
Nightmare: Run like Temp Svc, Bulling Staff, No hours, Etc
Inspector (Former Employee) – Several place – October 11, 2015
I was told I was being hired full time for Toyota. They're not Toyota. They are hidden in the corner of Toyota. The lies: They don't give 40 hours, they schedule you off one day a week or more
They don't properly train, yet yell at you when you mess up.
There is no job, they shove you wherever someone is absent and then when your scheduled day off or sick day comes, someone takes your spot, etc.
If you ever miss a day, including the day they Schedule you off .. you lose your job placement and are benched.
Benched: You clean their part of the factory and then go home: for however many days until Toyota has more work for them.
Favorites: They're friends always have work.
Staff: Where to begin. This Co exists because Co's like Toyota need a revolving door of people. There is no permanence or stability to the situation. It's operated like a temp agency. Mismanaged, Bullying young staff, Mostly angry women, but there's also One guy that's a complete pervert. Was asking me intimate questions while training me until I told him to stop.
Toyota: Toyota people are not happy your there. You're not allowed to talk to them or look at them and they make fun of you because you're wearing a hideous outfit - hard hat, goggles, earplugs, black apron, orange vest and gloves.
The Pic Group lost their contract with Toyota in one of their buildings and another Company was hired. They are on thin ice.
The entire situation is beyond awkward and uncomfortable
I'm Q.A. now at another Company here, with an actual job and I get 40 plus hours per week. I can only thankmore... God I had the guts to walk out the door. Some people I knew are still there, cleaning the factory.less
This job was one of my favorite. I've never work with such and amazing group of people. I made a decent amount of money working there and never dreaded getting out of bed to go. Inspecting car parts had never seemed so interesting. If I had the opportunity to work with this company again I definitely would love to.
Lead Hand, at BASF, Cellasto plant (Current Employee) – Wyandotte, MI – December 17, 2014
Typical day is started by talking with the Midnight Lead Hand and discussing issues or changes that occurred. I learned how to transition the midnite work and to flow it into the days shift work. Management are always able to be contacted for help or input.
Freedom to suggest changes and have them explored with out immediately being dismissed
Inspector (Current Employee) – San Antonio – November 12, 2014
Overall I did enjoy my experience, I made a bunch of friends and work environment is friendly. A normal day is come in write paper work of all the items we were checking and wait till the drivers drop off the parts for us to check. I enjoyed how everyone communicated and we were funny and always had a good attitude, the hardest part is working 12 hours a day for months with hardly anytime for yourself outside of work until the weekends not unless you work on Saturdays.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Shelby Township – January 10, 2015

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Chrysller Trenton Engine South – November 3, 2013
had fine co-workers for the most part ,work was interesting management generally tried to accommodate employees. The hardest part of the job was the mile and a half wake back to the office after standing in one place for 12 hours., The most enjoy able part of the job was fellow employees and friendships made
they would try to work you around your schedual as far as time off
I am employed in Chattanooga Tn with PIC I was happy to be a part of major company. My review of PIC is -0 simply because their onsite staff is incompetent and they yell at their team when they ask questions or ask them what order o f work is next. I don't like being yelled at because one of the lead night manager is asking them for inspected parts. They yell in front of the company employees and they have nasty disagreements with each other. All night long they sit and yell and talk to you in a childish manner. No one approach them in fear of losing their jobs. They need to be evaluated, and trained in leadership skills. I question the company. If you are a treat to them they will try and break your spirit by yelling and try to fire you make you quit. I have never seen anything like these three in my life. They give PIC a bad name and the company ask how we deal with PIC. There needs to be order and unbiased leadership. The might leads.need to get up out their chairs and lead their team.
An opportunity to inspect parts for a major company
PIC onsite leads are incompetent, lazy and they are not responsible.
sorting of automotive, and automotive related parts
Lead hand / Supervisor (Current Employee) – Guelph – November 21, 2011
The Pick Group is a fine place to work, but you will have to put in many hours in order to take home a decent paycheck. if you are not well liked by your supervisor you will not get much work. If you can stay on the good side of the office staff you will be alright, and will receive enough hours to do OK.
Automotive Quality Inspection (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – February 27, 2015
I had to pull inventory from the finish goods area and prepare to perform visual inspection on various automotive parts. I also collected and recorded data regarding defects,tag and isolate defective material and communicated results to manger or supervisor.
Inspector (Former Employee) – Lincolnton, NC – April 6, 2013
Go in inspect parts, i now know how what a hub part is suppose to be like brand new. great co-workers, very work focused area! management was not focused on making any employees position full time, or making sure people had any regular hours.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – New Bern, NC – December 30, 2014
While working for The Pic Group its ability to communicate was not what I expected. When finishing up with assignment, they don't place you with another job as quick as they should. The most enjoyable part of the job would be communicating with your co-workers.
