    I have been working at Recaro full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Recaro is a great brand, great product.

    Cons

    Product quality going downhill, Adient now owns them and doesn't understand how to do anything outside the scope of OEM (regarding production, quality, distribution, customer service). Sewing moving to Mexico; production being taken away from skilled workers in Auburn Hills, being given to union OEM workers at Bridgewater Detroit.

    I worked at Recaro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Hourly staff that works very hard.

    Cons

    Very poor upper management that treats staff like basic numbers. No direction or help just a get it done attitude, but will not provide you with the training and tools to complete the job. Human Resources is a joke she should be called inhuman resources. There is no reason to work hard because you will be treated the same if you put in the bare minimum. I do not recommend working here unless you want to be under... paid, over worked and treated like you are a robot.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all upper management with a team that know how to build quality product and not just run high numbers because it is all you know. Stop chopping staff to save money, instead manage inventory better. Start building Recaro seats again instead of low end seats with an expensive name.
