    I have been working at Volvo Car USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The blue collared workers are nice and seem to care. The facility is easy to get to and close to the interstate.

    Cons

    You’re success at volvo is solely dependent on which building you are assigned to. The majority of management is not qualified to be in the positions they are currently holding. The “volvo” culture does not exist. Plan to be working 7 12’s and never see your family. Don’t expect to have a “private meeting” with HR without one of your managers babysitting you.

    I have been working at Volvo Car USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    VELP program is awesome. Reasonably priced and the whole family is eligible. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Startup is over- policies are still an afterthought. Production, Quality, Human Resources are all grasping at whatever is shiny at the moment. Lean initiative left salaried associates with more duties and less support as they cover multiple roles. Made a Headcount Per Vehicle number at the expense of 400 temps who were here only because of management incompetence. The hourly associates that remain can’t even make 40 hours, but more cuts are needed. The Swedish culture has been eradicated and replaced by American stubbornness and leadership by fear.
