A lot of pressure
New car salesman (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON25 October 2017
Bad experience overall. Work environment is challenging as management has a lot of ego. There is a lot of pressure to hit your numbers..numbers are tough to reach because of low traffic.
Pros
You learn how the industry works so it can benefit you in the future
Cons
bad pay

voitures etincellantes, administration decevante
administration dept. service (Current Employee) –  Quebec City, QC28 September 2017
Je lis les commentaires sur FCA et l'image en usine semble tres differente que celle vecue en concession, je suis a l'emploi du meme concessionnaire depuis plus de 20 ans je peut dire que les relations entre manufacturier et concessionnaires sont des plus desagreables.
ex: politique de garantie non respectees, favoritisme envers certains
concessionnaire, et remuneration du travail accompli par les techniciens en garantie tres mediocre. malheureusement au Canada depuis la perte de Yves Landry personne n'osent se tenir debout face a l'administration Americaine de FCA. Qui rend le travail de tous les jours un defi de taille qui vaut la peine quand on a l'esprit "client" mais si on pense au manufacturier nous positionne au degre "0"
en tant qu'etre humain.
Desole Sergio mais ce n'est pas aussi etincelant que vous le dites
Pros
beaux produits
Cons
relations concessionnaire/manufacturier penible

Hard workplace with Horrible Management
Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON22 September 2017
Overall decent job for the money it pays but management and the work environment is completely horrible. People and team leaders do not care about safety, if you get injured they expect you to recover quick and act like it is nothing. Save yourself do not work here.
Pros
nothing really
Cons
everything!

Its a factory job, and comes with all that entails.
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON18 September 2017
Same hours everyday, steady work and and pay.
The pay and benefits are good but dont expect any sort or job satisfaction. Your basically bolting on parts 500 times a day. If low stress, and leaving work at work is what your after than its a good job for you. Problem is its very hard to get hired in the first place. And forget the rumours, its a hard job and you will work your butt off for that good pay, also it will eventually destroy your body, even the fittest people start to break down after a few years. There are easy jobs to be had, but you have to be there 20-25 years before you'll get them. Good luck
Pros
holidays and $
Cons
will distroy your joints

great company, experience and money however, bad management
Temporary Part-Time (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON14 September 2017
A typical day at work consists of coming in on time and working physically on the vehicles coming down the assembly line. I learned a lot about the automotive industry and how certain parts of the vehicle is assembled. The management is horrific and was the main reason why I decided to leave. The workplace culture was typical factory life, people were really nice however very uneducated. The hardest part of the job was the physical aspect. My body could not keep up sometimes and I found myself suffering from severe shoulder, back and leg pain. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people and the money.
Pros
pay, people
Cons
management, physical demeaning

Good experience, but not worth the negatives
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 July 2017
Very little organization and tracking. Lots of data is still recorded on paper or within very disjunct files/emails on the server system

Little to no training is provided in the role, you usually shadow someone in the same role for a week or less before you are on your own. OK for experienced hires from auto, detrimental to anyone onboarding

An extreme pressure between departments; production and quality are intrinsically set up to work against each other which usually ends up with both sides losing through compromise

Many continuous improvement/Kaizan type processes are force-fitted to work

Extreme hours expected. Causes very poor morale internally

However, there are many, very knowledgeable skilled tradesmen in the plant. There are lots of hands on skills that are only learned by them working there for years

Union can be difficult to work with, but not an extreme issue
Pros
World class operation, good pay
Cons
11-12 hour days, 6-7 days a week, old school management, resistant to change

Working in the office in a car plant is like going back into time. Old office furniture equipment that is not longer used but I learned how to use a microfich. Paid very well.

Temporary Part-Time (TPT) (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON3 July 2017

The management is obnoxious and unfair.
The workplace culture is disgusting

Good pay, good people, hard work
Part-time Automotive Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 June 2017
The shifts rotate every 2 weeks, which creates a dysfunction in sleep rhythm, (especially for students who work there). As a part-timer, you await for your assigned work station, then commence the work day and complete the same task for 8 hours. The work takes a toll on your joints and back, but occasionally you wind up with a really good placement. I learned how to adapt quickly to new work and to learn by example and as minimal setbacks as possible. In a work environment that requires you to know your job inside and out, you have to be able to keep up with the pace.
Management was stern but fair, and for the most part, very accommodating within their realm of reason.
Workplace culture was lively and supportive. People are very helpful and encouraging and friendly.
The hardest part of the job was the manual and repetitive labour and rotating hours every two weeks. The work was not always bad, just took a toll after a long period of working there.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. The community inside the factory is very welcoming and friendly.
Pros
Excellent work community, great wages
Cons
Work related injuries

Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON12 May 2017
Tedious work but mostly trivial. You're allowed to wear headphones and listen to music or read on the job. Pretty easy going depending on where you are located in the plant.

Highly efficient and productive workplace that focuses on team building and safety.
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON21 April 2017
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is an excellent corporation to work for. Throughout my time at Chrysler it became clear to me that managements number one focus was employee safety. Once a safe work environment has been established focus transitions toward continuous improvement both for the product and the workplace.

Assembly Line Temporary Part-Time (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON14 April 2017
I work as a TPT at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. You get an insight on how fast-paced industrial job settings function. Good pay, if you get a good job time can fly by pretty quickly.
