    I have been working at Valeo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of hours, overall good group of people

    Cons

    No time off for temps or you get fired, only one week vacation after hired in, short breaks by time you get to break area

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect employees to work 70 hours a week without complaining when the supervisor only shows up about 30 to 40 hours a week and doesn't show up at all on weekends

    I worked at Valeo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse environment
    Good pay
    Excellent benefits
    Challenging
    not much politics, if you do your job, you will thrive

    Cons

    A lot of red tape
    very hierarchical culture (French kind)
    Cost savings oriented, hence, not a lot of functional phones, projectors, etc to have meetings with teams in the facility
    People having important calls/meetings with customers in borrowed offices as conf rooms scarce
    HR competency

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the bureaucracy, lack of investment in new technology and limited authority to make decisions locally is holding Valeo back

    I worked at Valeo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Summer/Winter shutdowns, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Terrible managers who fight amongst themselves because no one likes to admit fault for the abundance of problems that occur on a daily basis. The plant manager has a few close friends in the office, he does not support anyone who is not in his immediate friend group. The HR department is obsolete, as long as no one is is injured and the company is at fault then they don’t care about you or your problems. During the last 5 months of my employment the only 2 HR reps showed up to work only a handful of times. Horrible working conditions, everything is dirty. Unsanitary bathrooms and break rooms, often running out of paper towels and toilet paper due to the absence of HR. Don’t waste your time here, of the 90k people employed at Valeo, this plant had the highest turnover percentage

    Advice to Management

    Resign
