    Current Employee - Intern  in  Auburn Hills, MI
    Current Employee - Intern in Auburn Hills, MI

    I have been working at Continental as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone who works here was very helpful and committed to helping interns settle in and learn the ropes. There is a system in place to maintain relationships with high-performing interns, with the possibility of a job offer out of school. Intern responsibilities are usually relevant to the field of work, rather than performing menial tasks, and managers are happy to explain the way aspects of the corporation works.

    Cons

    Managers are usually pretty busy with their own work, so there are occasions where intern work may not be immediately assigned.

    Current Employee - Line Operator  in  Seguin, TX
    Current Employee - Line Operator in Seguin, TX

    I have been working at Continental full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pros are that you its a simple job if your a line operator like I am, easy to get into and maintain. Bosses are way more lenient than what they make you believe at first. Relaxed work place.

    Cons

    The communication between the work force and management is lacking. Sometimes both have completely different expectations and often leads to very frustrating moments and interactions. Management does a poor job of keeping its workers motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I cant speak for the whole company as a whole but so far the plant in seguin has proved to be mediocre. Good enough to get the job done but so far away from the potential it has. It's sad that workers are only there because it pays the bills rather than to have a great time working for an international company. Upper management is awesome but lower and middle management is really lacking. The models for meeting production are there already. Start focusing on lower and middle management to be more of leaders and less of bosses. They are great at making things sound pretty and intelligent but lack the leadership skills to connect and set a waypoint for its workers. Besides throwing orders around they are really never there to build up their team or enhance the experience. Its almost as if they hated their jobs as much as the workers did! As for the production capabilities, a lot of line production workers don't care much for the company only doing the bare minimum. Thus reflecting on the lacking ability of its leaders to motivate them. Maybe better leaders would push away those type of workers and attract the right type? And i don't mean make them more up tight and meaner. Some already use intimidation with their rank as a method which is pretty sad. But besides from all that, the business model itself is fantastic. Congrats! Your business will keep growing, thats for sure. Just wonder how long it will be able to sustain itself with the people you got working for you.
