As a newly acquired facility, the culture change was very apparent.
Quality Co-op student (Former Employee) – Midland, ON – 21 August 2017
Manga closures acquired Tech form and were under going process changes from a top down prospective. this led to allot of head butting on what was deemed important priority wise between department heads moving forwards with projects.
Quality issues happening due to high turn over rates. Low motivation area plant around, facility requires willing staff from further away.
Being a new student in a stressful, high production work environment, the adjustment was a harder then theoretical class room talk. I give this experience a 10/10 people wise, everyone was willing to give 110% with out hesitation.
Seat Assembly Associate (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 10 July 2017
Everyday at work is the exact same since the seat assembly never changes. Had to be quick with assembling parts on the seat, rarely any communication during work. Supervisor there was very nice and was supporting. Hardest part of the job was the carpal tunnel I was experiencing during work near the end of each shift. The most enjoyable part was the friends I made during work. Magna Seating had very minimal room for an employees growth since the work was very robotic and never changed.

Car Seating Production Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 21 April 2017
As a factory, the work environment is really clean. The training at the beginning will be hard but they are actually patient in the period of training. After month, you will be able to handle the job. It is a hard and intense job but they will play the music during the work time and do the barbecue every year.
Tank/lab technician/ wastewater operator (Current Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 11 July 2016
Good company to work, excellent in benefits and training. Learned a lot about plating on ABS e differences between metal finishing and plastic finishing. Co-workers help to adapt on the new environment and to clear any doubt in relation to work. Management concerned about your well being. The hard part was to work every weekend more than 12 hours a day
Gym Monitor (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 4 June 2016
They are a good company. The only problem there is so many gym monitors that they have to break up the shifts for everyone. So I have one 2 hour shift a week and that can't support myself off of that. My typical day at work is I go in set up for whatever the activity is going on in the gym, sit and do homework, then once the activity is over I clean up and close up.
Very fast pace invironment, and no time for other activities.

Quality Assurance Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2015
I started my work with signing my attendance. I had to do quality inspection of finished products. I took a random sample of five parts and inspected it for conformity. My colleagues helped me in the inspection process. I was their leader so I had to do end inspection only after my colleagues do the inspection.
