It was a very hot environment where I was working but over all it was a good place to work especially on the last shift ,even tho u were constantly moving u could go at a reasonable speed as long as u made production for the hour no one was constantly on your shoulders so i liked it.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Oak Park, MI – November 3, 2017
Started out as a great opportunity, or so I thought. The company was looking to sell and it was very noticeable. They acquired awful programs to make themselves look profitable and appealing then sold to Adient.
Manual Welder (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 25, 2017
12 hour days as a production welder means no chat time, no socializing, no phones, doing their work! Easy work, pay is good. Drama is a normal occurrence, welders not knowing if tomorrow is another day of work or not.

Management is very tough to deal will. Operators are world class however. You are forced to deal with very complicated problems, so you are forced to learn a great deal. Intern at Futuris, but do not bet your career on this place.
Welder Inspector (Former Employee) – Newark, CA – August 12, 2017
Futuris was a great company gained alot of experience in automotive. All the employees including myself was dedicated and worked together to get the job done. Each manager & Team Leads worked very well with eachother to communicate what our goal was to get our job done. Very fast paced organized company.

the shift is 12hrs a day 6 days a week. as a student it doesn't work for me. if you have a family, definitely not a family friendly type of work. co-worker a not fun to work with. they are annoying and fan of teasing people to the point where it can get in your nerves. my supervisors and led are cool though. i left in the job because i have to go back to school. it was just my summer job. and i left their with good terms to everyone.

Materials Planner (Current Employee) – Newark, CA – October 9, 2015
My day starts with checking my emails for any urgent messages which needs to be taken care off immediately. Next I would run the shortage report of the system and verify for any immediate shortages. Take care of the immediate requirements. Meet with production crew and resolve any material issues for the day. Meet with Engineering to resolve any engineering changes. Issue purchase orders, track and confirm shipments. Resolve any inventory issues. Meet with Master Schedulers and confirm material availability for any customer demands. Meet with Cycle Counters/Material Handlers and resolve any issues. Best part of the job is interacting with people both internally and externally. Hardest part of the job is rescheduling delivery dates to customer.
