    I worked at Volvo Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My main focus was to perform AM (Autonomous Maintenance) audits and coaching so I had to work with blue collars on floor. I think that it gave me unique opportunities to hear from the workers' voices and helped me understand how the facility ran under certain management. The people there were quite nice.

    Cons

    It is a pretty old manufacturing facility. Some of the bad habits of workers were still carried from decades ago. Some of the supervisors seemed incompetent for their jobs. However, the upper management are working on transforming the atmosphere to a better one.

    Advice to Management

    ~ Hear more from workers.
    ~ Need a better rewards and punishment system.
