Production Worker (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – June 11, 2018
Enjoyed the people. Disliked Manager. I believe had a target on me. Was very stressful. Every day at standup meeting we were griped at for not having our productivity high enough. The area lead played favorites. If you needed help would not really help and treated you like you were dumb if you did not know what you were doing.
Mandatory OT, short breaks, raises were poor . Poor management
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – May 15, 2018
I was there for 3 years, and overall my experience was a positive one. If you are just working on the floor then overall the people are friendly and the job not too stressful. The real issues pop up if you are put on one of the teams with a lot of manufacturing requirements and not enough tool/materials to do the job. You are constantly on overtime just so the company can bill the customer and tell them that they are doing everything they can while you sit there with nothing to really work on. Aside from that, with it being a union job there is no real chance for raises or any such thing. All raises in compensation are really just a "survive long enough without getting fired" type thing.
Final Quality Inspector / Fair Specialist (Current Employee) – Sarasota, FL – May 7, 2018
Safran has very friendly people who work there. the majority of the employee's have been there for 20 to 30 years, but Safran has only been there for about 7. the company before that was Eaton. the issue with Safran is that there are many talented people who are good if not great at many things but get stuck doing the same things. I think its just growing pains. Safran is steadily grow as a company and i guess its just in the process of figuring all out. It is a good environment to work for even though i said the above statement everyone works well with each other.
As a direct Hire they have great benefits, and employee resources
When your good at something you tend to get stuck in it.
avg day is just a repetitive motion. same thing different part. if you have no knowledge in this field. then it isn't that bad for getting your foot in the door. Management is junk, which is an understatement. its a complete witch hunt if you aren't on 1st shift. The leads and supervisor will be after you from day one. claiming you arent doing your job or you are too slow. Nothing really enjoyable about the job. just a way to get a paycheck.
Internship in the cleaning department (Former Employee) – Yveline – April 19, 2018
I was in the cleaning department, and my goal was to clean the pieces that we sent to me. A piece was sent with a registration number and a paper that shows every operation done and must be done, so I had to verify if it was the right piece and make the operations. There were a couple of operations that can be done in the cleaning department.
Industrialization Support Manager - Safran USA (Former Employee) – Sharonville, OH – March 20, 2018
A typical day consists of phone calls with French counterparts and with suppliers that you are in charge of. It honestly feels like there is not much to contribute. But you are constantly pressured to make it seem like there is a lot to contribute.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – February 12, 2018
Overall Safran is a great company to work for with decent benefits. The oversight from corporate is great minus the egos that get involved between managers and corporate. A few individuals lack the emotional intelligence to communicate with anyone, much less a foreign visitor. They would rather throw things and scream until they turn red in the face than deal with problems or opportunities for improvement. I could understand why corporate was so hard on them because they were easy targets. The only problem is they work on the good ole boy network at this particular site and very slow promotion unless you start from the very bottom. The majority of the managers would not survive in another company. Corporate was hesitant to step in because the site was officially a subcontractor.
