Great job, best benifits you will find, almost impossible to get fired if you show up on time and don't cause problems with people.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This place works 6 days a week in maintenance you will work 7 days a week often. You have support but there is a strong lack of morale. Work is easy very easy. The benifits are the biggest highlight no one else will beat the benifit package. The maintenance wage should be higher but its not bad when you consider the benifits you get at no cost to you. Communication sucks but its getting better. Overall this place is probably the best job you could ever have in Texas. Can't speak for other locations but putting up with the negatives is easy when you weigh it all out.

Pros

Benifits benefits benefits.

Cons

Work life balance.

Production oriented manufacturing

This employer is production focused first and foremost, the attention they give to quality and safety is low and usually only occurs when a situation arises that requires it be addressed.

Pros

For the most part coworkers are friendly and helpful.

Cons

Mandatory overtime is common and often assigned with little notice. Breaks are short, healthcare is expensive for the coverage offered. Other benefits are bare minimum at best.

The good it's a job the bad you have no life with this company

Well the way I see it it just a stepping stone to something else because I found out with the amount of years I have given this company my retirement or pension benefits is only at 440.00 a month if I retired today and we work 6 days a week and most Sunday in a nut shell you can work 21 to 28 days straight

Pros

A job if you don't have one

Cons

You'll never be treated with respect all you are is a number

Pros

Cons

Terrible
Was this review helpful?

It’s absolutely terrible. Please choose a different place to work, this place isn’t worth it.

This place is draining and toxic. Most new hires won’t stay because it’s painful and with the long hours is a terrible mix. Most of them leave the first break if they stay that long.

Pros

Weekly pay

Cons

Everything else. Literally

Management & Union

Neither of them are fair nor want to hear your complaints. They pick & choose when they want to help. They don't care about your concerns. If their were better supervisors, team leads, & management that place would be a better place. Need to get out ALL the negative ppl.

Pros

Over time

Cons

Short breaks

You can work as much as you want. Good benefits.

This company really doesn't have it together. And this weekend(Thanksgiving) is a perfect exame. 1st and 2nd shift will work and wii be forced early 4 hours or late 4hours. Why?? There is a 3rd shift ya know. Makes no sense. And they do this all the time.

Pros

No chance of promotions and extremely long hours.

Lear is a top line company with just the wrong people in the wrong spots. Management is just lost and have no sense of making thing's right. Every shipment is behind and that becomes your problem. Because now you have to work extra and work extra days due to poor planning. Working for a union you will have no chance of being promoted at all. Most members have been there for a long time and not planning on leaving. So that leaves you doing the bottom of the barrel jobs. Which turns into a new employee every week. The location I worked for had a extremely high turn over rate. I couldn't keep up with new names and what people actually did there. So if you like abusive management and a needle in a haysack promotion. Then this place is for you. You will absolutely love it. No time at home with family . Your family becomes the machine you are running for the rest of your meaningless life.

Pros

Health insurance.

Cons

Everything else

Very productve and great culture

The plant in Morristown TN. Was built over 50 yrs. Ago. It had its glory days and served its purpose through-out its longevity. I'm glad to have been apart of it before it closed its doors in 2021. The people were the best I've ever been associated with, thank you for being a great memory.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Forced overtime

Dont do it!

Managers are weak,will lie on you and doesn’t know how to manage. They do not care about your outside life. The job is very stressful from supervisors poor management skills. The job will break your body down and they will deny it to the end like you didn’t get hurt there. The union is not for you and don’t care about nothing but those union dues that they get paid from your check every month.

Pros

Good paid benefits

Cons

Stressful

Employees hold no value

The work load isn't bad, if you're willing to be available 24/7 for the company. There is little to no respect for the employees. Every one is willing to throw blame at others. New hires off the street are getting the exact same pay ,as someone who has been there over 30 years. It's a sad time,when you can go work at McDonald's, for a better pay,than you'd get at company like Lear. Any extra compensation for the employees, comes with ridiculous stipulations. HR uses deceitful tactics to get people in the door. Telling people it's a 5 day work week when I'm reality, it's 6 or 7 days. They put ads in local papers stating pay up to $33/hr,when average rate is $16. You can literally get fired,and get rehired a week later, and receive a bonus as a new hire. Meanwhile, the employees who show up, know their jobs,and can run circles around the management, are treated like 3rd class citizens. Most Management has no idea how to do any of the jobs. There is no room for advancement within the company, unless you are conniving and a brown nose.

Pros

You get to go home at quitting time

Cons
