Quality Inspector and auditor (Current Employee) – Shelby Twp, MI – May 3, 2017
More less for a college student or someone that is retired. A person that has time to just sit around and wait for their call. In the beginning the work was steady. The work I did was easy and the hours were flexible
A typical day at work was a good. I learned a lot from my supervisor. Management was okay. Co-workers were easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was being on call. The most enjoyable part of the job was working to provide for my family.
Insspector/assembler (Former Employee) – Wyandotte, MI – March 17, 2016
Worked in assembly. Assembled different parts on machines. Usually grouped by jobs.
Learned different assembly tooling operations. Able to surpassed quotas.
Management: I really have no idea!! No real directions on how to perform job operations. SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) were not readily available for each assembly job. Asked for standard production numbers for each job and I get different answers. Example: How many cases for a listed job assembly? Manager = 36, Supervisor = 40. Where are they pulling these numbers from? No one can answer that? Anyways, I did 44 cases per 12 hour shift.
Co-workers were great!! They taught me how to assemble for each job. This was the supervisors job - didn't happen.
Hardest part was not knowing what standard production numbers were and getting bad parts from inspection which slowed down assembly due to the assembler (me) having to FIX that part before assembly. Then the supervisor complains we did not meet production numbers (whatever they were). Imagine a normal assembly of 1600 parts - production falls to 800 to 1200 due to trying to fix and rejecting 100+ parts.
Enjoyable: being productive and NOT having to collect welfare!!!
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.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Trenton, MI – July 3, 2015
Work was good and sometimes hectic but busy. Management was fine , surroundings are good. Sometimes other employees get to be complaining and lazy but resolved the issues, systems needed to be changed with Chrysler help. Biggest problem is unionized and non-union workers were working side by side became a problem. Overall, PIC Group needs to increase the pay scale to keep their workers .
attitude, management, busy working and easy work
experienced management, union versus non-union employees
Supplier Quality Technician/Project Specialist (Current Employee) – vw of chattanooga – June 3, 2015
I love being in quality assurance but the company i work for offers no benifits, no insurance, no raises as promised. I need to move on and find a company that will appreciate my leadership skills and ability to work with people.
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
Its a good job, the upper management does not do their job very well but hey what can I do
Inspector (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – May 11, 2015
I would go into work on the first day. Get trained on what I am inspecting and what to look for. Then do it for the rest of the day. The job was really not hard. The hardest thing that I did was dealing with the turnover rate for some of the places I worked. A lot of the time people would not show up and I would have to fix the problem on my feet. Which is not an issue. But the upper management is awful.
Good short term, not career unless in right location
LEAD HAND (Current Employee) – Midwest – April 27, 2015
The company is laid back and overall could be a great career however it is a 3rd party company that relies on "contracts". hourly pay is not great however the compensation for drive time, and all the little stuff makes up for it.
Job Work/Life Balance- you only know your hours if the contract that you got hired for is a large site that will last otherwise it is always based on daily basis
Job Security/Advancement- you NEVER know when your contract is up till the day of.
Management- Team work is everything, which is always good.
Overall rating* is low due to not able to make a career, and having stable work life.
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) – 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.
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.
