Former Employee - CAD Engineer says"The weakest team managers I've encountered in my career. The team atmosphere is a bit like the communist era, if your familiar with that feeling. No one is willing to help or support, unless there is a senior around to see the action."
Current Employee - MTM says"Caged like animals. OK if your in the management's friends list or go to their house to watch football. You soon realise which are looked after. The policies are made up, good if your a "minority" as they say, but no good for the "majority". HR are un approachable."

Gabelstaplerfahrerin (Former Employee) says"Festanstellung nur über eine Personaldienstleister möglich. Test the best! Kollegen in der Sitzerstellung arbeiten im Akkord! Als Leiharbeiter wirst Du dahin gesteckt wo Du gebraucht wirst obwohl Du für einen bestimmten Job eingestellt worden bist. Ich wüde mir hier faire Vorgehensweise wünschen. War als Staplerfahrer dort und musste aber Sitze verpacken. Das wäre ja alles nicht schlimm gewesen, hätte man mir das im Vorfeld gesagt, das man so immer dort beginnt. Moderne Sklaverei!!!!!"
Técnico de Mejora Continua (Former Employee) says"El ambiente laboral de Lear Corporation es muy pesado, es complicado, convivir con el área de mejora continua, son personas que son muy buenas en ciertas actividades, pero su actitud no les ayuda, ya que el área de mejora continua no quiere, no sabe, no conoce, no le gusta el trabajo en equipo, su actitud hace que el flujo laboral sea mas lento. Hay muchas cosas por mejorar en el área de mejora continua. Hay algunas áreas muy rescatables. Pero mejora continua es un área muy difícil de tratar. Es una humilde opinión. Es mi experiencia en Lear Zacatecas."
Production Worker (Former Employee) says"The worst place ever no real guidance they talk to you like trash not enough pay and they take your quarterly bonus money for anything. You have to constantly watch your back at this job."
Inspetor de Qualidade (Former Employee) says"recomendo, uma das piores empresas desse porte que já trabalhei."
MAINTENANCE TECH (Former Employee) says"Modern day slavery. You work under a virtual whip all day. Management hates you and wants you to suffer. The worst of the worst human beings manage at Lear Usually people who can’t make it at a real employer"
Project Engineer (Current Employee) says"There are no opportunities for training, learning, or advancement. No resources are provided for developing or improving products. Management is weak, but also inflexible and unreasonable. Salaried positions can be expected to travel and work 70 hours or more a week for no extra pay, but flexible schedules or reduced hours during slow times are not allowed. Lear is a family company when the employee is expected to sacrifice, and it's a business when the employee would like concessions from Lear."
Operator production (Former Employee) says"very poor relationships towards staff office workers supervisors quality etc think their above shop floor staff and look down on them. also the way people get treated unfairly by lear."
