    Avantages

    Employee car leasing program for employees

    Inconvénients

    Poor Management, too much overtime, favoritism, can’t have an opinion of your own

    Conseils à la direction

    Take advice from the Swedish colleagues. It’s ran nothing like we were promised. While in pre hire training you are truly sold a dream that this company will be ran like the one on Sweden with mutual respect and a wonderful culture. Even the colleagues from Sweden that came over to help couldn’t believe the way the US colleagues were running the company. They would get frustrated quickly with the way things were... being ran. And give advice but management from the other car companies that were hired (to bring in the culture of where they came from) would not be open to listening. One upper management person said that the company will never be ran the way that we were told it would be run. So like the summary said we were sold a dream. We work ridiculous overtime for issues because upper management supply chain can’t keep the parts orders correct. The system for that is inaccurate and no one seems to care. It states we have parts that we don’t. And there have been times when no one could even find the parts that were actually at the factory. It’s just a cluster of problems with parts and upper management issues. And don’t let me forget the favoritism by management also. So much of that goes on there also. Don’t be a little bit outspoken about being treated unfairly or you’re doomed.

    Avantages

    The pay and progression is more than what I’ve seen for other companies. I like my supervisor. Corporate values. Non-Union in Charleston. Opportunity for growth. Paid leave for child birth. People are great when they aren’t exhausted. Medical on site. Site is secure. Smoking Areas. Free coffee. Team leads and some supervisors are supportive and will work with you.

    Inconvénients

    Long hours make it difficult to pick my children up without being late. Numbers seem to matter more than employees. HR does little to mitigate conflict. Very militant environment (anything can get you in trouble, like having your cell phone in your pocket, or using your cell phone without being stationary, and it seems outside management won’t stay in their lane). Long hours are very common, working 50-58 hours per... week for months. Seniority does not seem to matter to HR, as temps can act completely rude and your work and progression is recognized very little. The points system is very unbalanced with the hours we work. No separate sick leave from PTO, and you are charged PTO if you have it and you call in sick or need to leave early unscheduled.

    Conseils à la direction

    Remember what was sold to every employee, Volvo is supposed to be a people company. It is a numbers company in Charleston unless you work in the office. Every job has ups and downs, and the downs are outweighing the ups, and it shows from the retention rate. Work on keeping employees, not cycling them and replacing them.

    Avantages

    You get paid on payday. (Unless your leaving then they take your last paycheck which you find out on payday)

    Inconvénients

    Management is garbage, no directions, no vision, no standardized work. Free for all from the management team. Company doesn’t believe in department lanes (you know, make your dept #1) Nope, so you may have been hired as a QE busy rest assured you’ll be coordinating trucks, ordering parts, reworking cars but hey, it’s in the name of “team work”. Worse place I’ve ever been. Had to hire an attorney because... the company decided they would triple the costs of my moving package and stick me with a $28k fee for leaving early. No integrity. Poorly managed. Rude & clueless.

    Conseils à la direction

    Read a book on structure. “stay in your lane” Not everything is a “coaching moment”. Leaders help others lead
