FCA is physically demanding job that requires shift work and weekends. You are well compensated for your work and the benefits are decent. Air tools and automated lifts are part of some of your jobs. There is great lateral movement with limited upward movement on the assembly lines. There is a good opportunity for management positions with a university degree. Overall I enjoyed my 20 years there.
I worked on the line and have good co workers and good management but sometimes the jobs can be very strenuous and require extra energy to complete. Good job for me being a student.
This job has helped me become a hard-working and independent worker due to working on many different jobs that require lots of personal time alone. Even though the department I work in (Body and White) has a lot of independent jobs I have also learned how to work with people more and adapt to working with a variety of people over the years.
Independent working stations
Short breaks and less heat relief in the summer
Chrysler has taught me how to work in a fast paced work environment. Working on the assembly line involves time management, hand eye coordination, health and safety awareness, and a great team effort. A positive work ethic is very important when working with others.
Great pay, great benefits, positive atmosphere.
Not enough hours.
Never felt like I had security there I felt like building something 500 times a day and then them throwing away 1/3 of the workforce. Really hot and illegally hot during the summer
My typical 8 hour day at work can consist of 2 hours of work then a 10 minute break, with a 20 minute lunch.. also a 10-15 minute relief included. The management is very average but the employees are friendly and can have great conversation while working throughout the day
A typical day at work i would train on a new job or train someone else and perform around 450 cars a day. I learned how to push myself and keep up with the changing dynamics
A typical day at work consisted of putting together mini-vans in a fast and efficient way. I learned about how mini-vans were built and how they work. The hardest part of this job was that some jobs were a lot more complicated than other and it took a long time to learn them. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to listen to music while we worked and talking to other employees.
The best part of working at FCA (Chrysler, Brampton Assembly) is the wages -$35.00/hour for unskilled manual labour. Benefits are mediocre. Work is monotonous and hard on the joints. There are easy jobs in inspection and material handling. Selection for those jobs is by seniority. I personally would not recommend working in Auto Assembly for a young person. It would be better to get a good education in a high demand profession than to work a boring job and potentially oneself. I'm amazed at the number of 2nd and 3rd generation autoworkers at Brampton Assembly.
$34.00 for unskilled manual labour, easy to get time off work for personal reasons, I've worked with some great people.
Manual labour, joint injuries, boredom, lack of advancement opportunities, some fellow employees and management not so nice to work with
The company helps University students afford all their expenses and still be able to save up due to the high wages provided. The union is very supportive towards all employees and the supervisors understand any absences due to educational purposes.
First started at the Chrysler Canada Ajax On. Trim Plant in 1982 .Worked on different lines assembling door panels . In 1987 I went to warehouse to operate Counterbalance Forklift and certified in house . There I would load and load product from or to transport trailers . Would take parts to all areas on the 3 lines . !990 I went back to the plant to work on the line . In 1993 I transferred to the Chrysler Canada Brampton Assembly Plant . The Ajax Trim Plant was closing .I learned to use various air powered tools . Learned to operate and air powered glue spray gun , The people were good to work with and the environment was great . I didn't really have any dislikes about my job . After transfer to Brampton I worked in Trim ! area installing multiple parts . Learned to operate pneumatic arm to install HVAC unit into chassis . In 2003 I took an early retirement package due to health problems
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.
