Great toolboxes, lack other important tools
HR Manager (Former Employee), Highland Park, MIJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Fair compensation, nice succession planning
Cons: Work Life Balance, Too many bosses to report too, too many responsibilities for the smaller facilities personnel.
There is a lack of training within the locations in the United States. The positions are designed not so much on the typical job descriptions, but rather the Valeo way.

Lack of work life balance. Employees in the office of a production plant look forward to working 50(+) hours a week.

a great place to work
Student Internship (Former Employee), Topeka, KSJune 23, 2015
Pros: cheap lunches, daily staff meetings
Cons: no down time
Valeo is non-stop work environment. I was an intern there. During my time there, I helped run group counseling sessions, type in notes from group sessions, input KCPC and SASSI tests and sit in on individual counseling. I learned that being a counselor has its rewards, but also has it's challenges. The hardest part was seeing client return after having a successful release. The most enjoyable is the atmosphere amongst co-workers.

MATERIAL PLANNING & PRODUCTION CONTROL SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Highland Park, MIMay 21, 2015
Pros: Number of good colleagues
Cons: Management was not aware of details of position. Lack of support.
I enjoyed the colleagues at Valeo. I processed the daily invoice of the previous production day. I ran the schedules from the customer and corrected errors. I processed daily reports for Customer Service, Inventory Management and Logistics personnel for a JIT Sequencing Plant.

I lead the Master Production Schedule Meeting. I created the Master Production Schedule.

I was responsible for Mopar, Venezuela and Egypt production shipments.


Management was not aware of the functions of my position.

Fun work environment
Press Operator/Trainer (Former Employee), Seymour, INSeptember 9, 2014
Cons: i got no benefits or insurance or anything from working there
Although Valeo was a fun place to work 90% of the time there was that other 10% where they didn't run presses and such as they should have and it was really stressful. For example they would run all the overflow parts on the weekends for volunteers and then we come in again the following week and they would start up all the presses when we are out of packaging, therefore forcing us to throw away quality parts. Then the supervisor and team leader would complain when we have high scrap whenever they should know what we do and don't have packaging for, hence why they come in early every day. All in all i'd say it was an alright place to work. When they run things properly.

Little Chance for advancement
R&D Engineer (Current Employee), Troy, MIJuly 14, 2014
Training is hard to come by to do your job with a high level of confidence. Atmosphere is very diverse, often to the point of communication issues. No sense of work/life balance is realized here. Rarely know what my key roles and responsibilities are.

Just-in-Time environment , all work, know play
Logistics Team Lead/ Co-Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Highland Park, MIJuly 8, 2014
Pros: i taught myself a lot
Cons: lack of training
Typical day at Valeo, for me, included employee attendance, holding QRQC meeting with employees, delegating daily tasks and sending employees to rotating job sights within the facility, answering emails and beginning daily parts count. Alerting chain of command as needed throughout the day of any issues. Maintaining proper work flow and process flow, montoring employees PPE and 5S. Keeping in contact – more... with the customers and suppliers acccording to shop floor requirments, while managing inbound and outbound processes. Monitoring all inbound paperwork and SAP enrty, and outbound quality of product. Constant contact with transit drivers and their disbatch, and also Supplier drivers and their disbatch. Managing Dock retention times. Ending my day by communicating with the next shift, via email,text, or phone call and making sure employees leave the facility cleaner than they found it. – less

Lack of concern for employees welness
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee), Seymour, INJune 4, 2014
Pros: good pay.
Cons: employee relations
Management seems concerned with numbers more so than employee health, and morality. Insurance is very expensive week to week, and does not cover a lot. Pay is good but hours required are a lot 10-12 days 6-7 days a week.
