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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Quality - Weld Destruct (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON15 May 2018
3 shift rotation work for production/materials/maintenance. A great place to leave your brain at the door. The management has a high turnover with their old school ways of thinking which causes low morale for team members. They only thing that made me stay for so long was the great benefits they offer for a wide range of things, premium wages lots of overtime if you want it, however not a place to really brag about. The morale and whole culture needs to change.
Pros
Benefits, competative wages, vacation
Cons
Shift rotation, disorganized company

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Bradford, ON25 April 2018
I can't say a lot about this company as this is the first and also the only one company that I have been working in so far. It is a typical factory, doing the right things.
