    I worked at Volvo Trucks as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and co-workers, very professional and for the most part the cream-of-the-crop. Working environment and hours cannot be beat.

    Cons

    As a contractor there is always a risk of losing the position, and for me, after three different positions at Volvo you begin to see how things operate. Most group managers treat the contractors with respect and courtesy and value them as much as permanent staff, they realize that we are there to do the best job we can and hopefully be asked to join the company as permanent full time staff. However, there are group managers that look at contractors as being as disposable as a dry ink pen. My excellent, respectful and engaging group manager was replaced by one that was from a different culture, she made no effort to speak to me about my position or discuss my plans, nor did she even appear to care. My position was cut with no notice to my agency or myself. When my last contract ended we were given the courtesy of two weeks severance and 30 days notice to plan, nothing this time around. I was given no explanation as to why the position ended years ahead of what i was told the project would last. For a company that prides itself on
    it's positive attitude towards it's staff and people in general, this seems a contradiction.

    Advice to Management

    Contractors have families and expenses just like everyone else, take the time to engage them and find out what their goals, plans and expectations are. You might find out that a lot of your contractors will put more effort into their jobs than some full time staff in gratitude for having a long term, stable position that may turn into a permanent gig. And for those managers from quite different cultures, if you are going to work in the USA, become familiar with how things are done here, at least try to adapt rather than trying to make it work here they way you "did it there." You might get better co-operation and more respect for the good qualities you do bring to your position. Read your mission statement and follow it.
