Pretty good workplace
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON28 November 2018
If you can get hired full-time, you will have a job for life. The pay and benefits are good, plus they have profit sharing and they include employee input in all major decisions. The large Asian workforce ensures that many ethnic holidays are celebrated.

BUT most departments work 6 days a week, no exceptions unless you booked time off. Management is not good in most departments and nepotism is rampant in the hiring process.
Pros
lots of free food, decent cafeteria, lots of overtime
Cons
6 (or 7) day weeks, must stay until end of production

A Great Place to work, fast pace, great products
Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Troy, MI27 October 2018
Overall a great place to work with great compensation and benefits. Often time extra hours are put in, 8-10 hours per day is very regular, with some 12 hour days. People there were great to work with as well as most managers/ Supervisors I worked for.
Pros
opportunity for performance bonuses
Cons
sometimes too fast paced / testing always becomes the bottle neck

good job security
Supervisor, Procurement (id) (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON13 October 2018
Good job security and respect. Company is very stable and no risk of bankruptcy.
But not very good health package. For some positions there is no room for promotion or raise.
Overall I recommend

Ok place to work, although stressful workplace environment.
Launch Manager (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON28 September 2018
Highly detached groups, resulting in micro level dis-functionality due to ongoing shuffling, but needed in order to stay competitive on the macro global stage. Result is stressful workplace environment, which is not uncommon in automotive industry.

Tiring on the body with repetitive motions.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON25 September 2018
I worked as production worker and it was very tiring and quite physically demanding but I also had the opportunity to work as an administrator in which it was good and relaxing but there is less job security.

Not a good place
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON23 September 2018
The culture was good at the start. No long term positions because they fill small positions with temp workers. and they are not liable because they use and outside company for hiring.

Good pay and benefits for the area
Maintenance Electrician (Current Employee) –  Formet16 September 2018
Magna is a good company with good pay and benefits. They are leading manufacturers in their industry and they have good equipment. Magna is however a tough place to work for people who only want to work 40 hours a week. Overtime is constant and time is hard to get off during the summer months when most people want holidays. For those who like to work a lot, there is plenty of extra money to be made.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Overtime

Good pay but the buck stops there
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON13 September 2018
Expected to work 60 hour weeks, decent pay, threatened to be fired weekly, rotating shifts. Management makes the culture toxic, much prefer the stick to the carrot, and will repeatedly tell you how good you are getting paid. Hard to book vacations, like unbelievably hard, usually they just tell you when you can take your vacations. Not much if any opportunity for advancement unless you're there for 10+ years then maybe you will get a 2$ raise. In the few years I worked there, no pay increase to even cover inflation, flat rate of pay for departments, so no matter how good you are you can't excel past your peers. But hey, you can get a decent phone plan!
Pros
Discounted rogers phone plan
Cons
Culture, Morale, Vacation days, pay, management.

hard to manage
Sorting, Assembling and Machine operating (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON1 August 2018
Working in Magna was a great experience. However, the machine that I was working on would get damaged everyday at least 3 times. When asked for assistance the machine operator would show attitude and arrogance. I was not impressed by the environment around me. it was very negative.
