It’s okay

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It’s an okay place to work, just watch who you talk to because a lot of people will twist your words and make things up! Don’t get me wrong you do meet some amazing people but you have to choose very wisely

Pros

Not sure

Cons

Rude rude people and poor management
Was this review helpful?

Fast paced

So much to say. All they care about is numbers, team leaders/supervisors don’t really care about you, they are like the robots you use to weld. Can be very toxic. Say goodbye to your social life.

Pros

Some workers are very good to work with

Cons

Work life balance basically non existent
Was this review helpful?

Long hours. Mandatory weekend shifts if your chosen to. No confidentiality. Rude management.

Only been working here for a month and I already have conflict with my team leader. He has no respect and no confidentiality to anyone. I don't hate the work or the people. Work can be very slow considering machines always break down or powers down. They do not pay well.Also it used to be hard to get a job there but now they are always looking for people.

Pros

Free coffee Many workers are very friendly

Cons

You may be deeply unsatisfied Management sucks

I look forward to working g for Magna again

Anytime I would work there I enjoyed every job opportunity, moved up quickly. From Packer to cnc operator,bar tester,G12 inspector,quality inspector,maintenance administrator, as well as a data input

Pros

Paid brakes

Cons

Shift change
Was this review helpful?

Results oriented company.

Be prepared to produce results quickly. High paced work environment and expectations are associatively high. But if cutting-edge technology interests you, this is the place to be.

Getiing Worse EveryDay

Stay clear from here. Management has absolutely no idea what their doing. Problems that existed years ago are the same ones still there. Profit share plan got changed so you get practically nothing. If you want overtime, you'll get lots but at cost of not having a life. Broken promises and broken equipment means broken spirits and morale.

Pros

Overtime

Cons

Incompetent management

Great place to work

Great place to work, lots of overtime if you want it, relatively stress free and the supervisors have a pretty solid amount of communication with those under them

Love the pace!!!

Magna is a fast paced placed, you are here to work. Pay is much higher that in most places, great benefits and amazing management support.Unfortunately due to Covid and chip shortage the hours have been reduced and Magna along with other automotive industries have had no choice but to adjust. I highly recommend working here

Pros

Management support

Good pay, great people, questionable job security

Terrific place to work in regards to the people. Everyone I worked with was generally pretty upbeat and positive, and sometimes time would fly because of the fun people you were around. Like any factory job, they do their best to keep your job secure but it’s just not the best with todays climate and the way things are going.

Pros

Paid lunch, good people, good pay, lots of PTO once you’ve been there a while

Cons

Questionable job security

Everythings rushed and everyone is constantly leaving.

There is a bad atmosphere here. Everyone is throwing everyone else "under the bus" blaming each other. At the technician level it's a rotating door. few people stay past 2-3 years. Most of the employees are 4 month co-ops and you have to constantly train new people and fix their mistakes in the technologist role

Pros

Good benifits

Cons

Low pay, bad atmosphere. Revolving door of employees, broken equiptment, missing equiptment, Overworked

Students beware

I was a TPT and summer student for about 1 year total. 2 weeks of training turned into 5 days and then I was thrown into the fire. I was berated for not working fast enough before fully being trained on my job. I ended up cutting my hand on a metal seat frame on my 5th day. I was put on light duty for a short period of time. Union representative is non existant and management looks down on workers. Workers are fully aware that management doesn't care about the health and well being of workers. Overall poor experience but not bad pay for a student job. 1 job here is the equivalent to about 3 jobs at any other factory. If you're okay will less pay and more work this is the job for you!

Pros

far and few between

Cons

long hours, not enough breaks for the work being done

Work is ok but could be better

It's alright would be better if it was air-conditioned , they knew exactly what they would be running or something of the sort planned out before would be nice

Pros

Benefits and profit sharing

Cons

Working 6 days a week

Not a good company to work for

Honestly this is the worst job I have ever had. They treat students very poorly, way too many team leaders who walk around and do nothing, and just many employees looking it for themselves. There is no consent of teamwork amongst the employees. It feels like a competition as opposed to a workplace. The workers who have been there for 30+ years think they run the place and can treat you however they like. As a summer student employee I really thought my employee rights would be advocated for, clearly I was wrong. Overall, while the pay is very good, please do yourself a favour and apply to other jobs. The money is not worth your mental health suffering.

Pros

Engineers and co-op students are fantastic

Cons

Poor Management, 35+ Degrees everyday.

Productive and very rewarding

Really great place to work. Good management with a great vision. Family focused with a lot of perks. Lots of activities set up for your children and family members like at Christmas and summer barbecues

Pros

Barbecues . Free shirts during launches etc

Cons

Fast pace

As Maintenance you are not limited from learning

As a former millwright I was not limited to performing mechanical tasks only. There was plenty of opportunity to do other tasks. Great environment to learn. Co workers were cooperative with each other.

Pros

Learn new things, great coworkers

Cons

"Clicky" management
Was this review helpful?

Great environment, team, and opportunity to advance. Low base pay, great benefits

Great place and keeps you motivated to work and advance in your career. It gets stressful at times but just like any other job. Pay is a little below average, but they pay overtime. one negative about overtime is for fulltime salaried employees, hours are paid after 44 hours, meaning 4 hours of free overtime everyweek.

Pros

Good benefits, good people, challenges you to grow, everyone feels like they are one team

Cons

low pay, stressful

Teamwork environment

I have only recently started less than a year ago and can't say a bad thing about the place they treat me great give me time off when needed and challenge me with new projects and step me along the way if I'm stuck. I can see myself there for the long haul

Pros

Employee appreciation

Cons

Short staffed department

Great place to work

Overall Formet Industries is a great place to work the people you work with are very nice and helpful. They pay you very well for that work that you do, just be prepared there is a lot of over-time to go around, if you are like me and love that over-time pay then it is a great place to be. The only reason I left was to be able to work closer to home.
