I worked at Magna International full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Pay was comparable 24/7 to get it . Very many good people that you work with.

Cons

24/7 on call no family life with work life balance . Managers are clueless and manage with fear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember we are people and need to have down time in order to function.

    I have been working at Magna International

    Pros

    Wages and Benefits are very good compared to other companies in our area.

    Cons

    I do not understand why it is everyone from the CEO down to local plant management gets such HUGE bonuses when it is actually the people(to use managemants words) on the shop floor that makes sure we put out a quality part that we are proud to put our name on.
    I am not saying I am not thankful for what Magna has done for myself and other employees, but what I am saying is why do you feel you are of more importance than I and my fellow workers are.
    We need each other. YOU are no more important than I am. Salaries for these people are not a problem for I know they earn it. I guess we do not earn what we get. Let me ask one thing, what would you do if you did not have us? Also how many people could be put to work if you did not take such HUGE bonuses. Just SAYIN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at you are worth to MAGNA. NOW how much do you think the hourly associate is worth?
    How would you get your product out IF you had no associates? I guess it would be like what I have heard in some of the meetings I have set in on, which is I WILL DO IT then you go out and get the SHOP FLOOR employees to do it but you say you are the one doing it.
