    Former Employee - Machine Operator in Toledo, OH

    I worked at Magna International full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They care about their employees, and my experience there was wonderful. The pay we received for the work we did seemed more than fair, and if I had the opportunity, I would return there.

    Cons

    Very strict attendance policies. long hours and possibility of working lots of weekends....so if you like overtime, this would be considered a pro.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to take a second look at their sick day policies, and medical leave policies. being a non union company and an at-will employer, they need to offer up something to give employees a better sense of job security in the event of personal injury or illness

    Your HR manager should NOT have relatives working there. Give your associates training, REAL training.

    Pros

    Great Pay. Great Coworkers. Ambiance is just pure heaven on earth. Management is just superb, under Bob Bowers tutelage.

    Cons

    No longer in the Syracuse area, having relocated to Mexico. Too bad that for $1 less for transfer cases, they outsourced American jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move back to Syracuse to build our economy, not theirs
