The base pay, for all areas, is below average, which is the major cause of an exceptionally high turnover rate of employees. The company's response to the frequent low pay criticisms is to claim that Recaro's pay "is competitive for our industry".

Additionally, many of the workers hired aren't competent enough, or motivated enough to be trained (or trusted) for many of the critical skills positions.Advice to ManagementAdvice
