Great company to work for

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Learned many things about projection welding and spot welding. There is always a chance to improve your skills and preference is given to internal employees than external applicants during hiring for new positions.


100% company paid benefits


Too many audits

It was the worst place I have ever worked.

What is the best part of working at the company?The compensation and the location What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The heat and the hours including shifts and weather condition which alter working conditionsWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Not the best - unfair practices and no alternate solutions for people being bullied What is a typical day like for you at the company?Swipe in go to the lunchroom until 5 minutes prio to shift then walk to the work area, line for start up meeting. Work 8 or double shifts and take breaks and lunch at designated times. Unfortunately you work with the same person and the on the same line most of the time. Once you’re there for awhile they will allow you to work other lines but with little to no training- sucks.

underpaid and overworked

i was very stunned to find out i'd only be getting $17 an hour for the position i was offered. i stayed for one month. it's ridiculous that it's even legal to be paid that little and have to work 10+ hour days multiple times a week. i was not able to pay my bills effectively with this job despite full-time hours. i am now $1000+ in credit card debt.


good breaks


very long hours, extremely little pay

Great place to work

Supporting solutions for our Customers (Magna Plants). Helping to move our plants forward in error proofing their processes digitally. Providing more production realtime data visually, to assist management in decision making in quality and inventory control. Good people to work with at Corporate and at the manufacturing plants.


Great benefits, and advancement opportunities


Depending on the type of work, hours could be longer.

Good company to work for. A little bit of favoritism on the floor. The timing is good as well. Pay should be a little higher for this kind of job. Onsite parking is good

50/50 had good days, had bad days

What is the best part of working at the company?Being part of the Magna FamilyWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?Micro managing and no support from the immediate leaderWhat is the work environment and culture like at the company?Culture on a global scale great, work environment very challengingWhat is a typical day like for you at the company?Chasing down answers as to why equipment did not operate as required, and secondly, when I have no control of the design of the cell or implementation of the equipment but I need to make improvements, makes for a very long, stressful day.

Mediocre at best

Not a horrible place to work the people are amazing and the benefits are alright but the pay just isn't enough and having no retirement package makes it a death sentence not to mention they can cancel a months production hours before the next shift


Good people


Unpredictable industry and under paid

Poor management and treatment of employees

Management takes advantage of lower level employees' willingness to earn. There is a remarkable disconnect between office management and the employees on the floor in terms of respect and care.


Not much


A whole lot

Good place to work

Good place to work... great group of people to be on line with for 8 hours of your day. Production floor bit confusing at times but eventually everything works out smoothly for an easy shift

Hard work, Fair pay

Works are fairly compensated, training can be a bit easier on people with zero experience (but it was understandable since the production line was always pushed to the max with frequent overtime)

Easy work, great learning. Opportunities to switch different departments. Full timer will get to learn welding (sometime temps also) Awesome Caf with Veg/Non veg options on cheap rate

Amazing place to work at

People are amazing and helpful to work with. Everyone is so understanding and provide full support and understanding. Management works with you to progress your skills. They have mandatory training that everyone is a part of to grow yourself in your carrer

Rewarding but stressful

Can be a very rewarding place to work, But is incredibly unorganized. Shift work life. 8s and 12sDirty, hot, loud.Not everyone embraces the team spirit. Some good eggs still around though.

Meant for beatdown people who don't have any other options

Due to everyone being related and all the conflicts of interest. Its very likely that I could die here any day due to the lack of support/structure and high-school culture.


You get paid


Having 4 different bosses that will use you as a "fall-guy" without any hesitation.
