What makes the culture at Chrysler so distinctive? All the things that empower you to bring your best:

INNOVATION

It's a dynamic, challenging climate we work in. To stay ahead in the automotive industry, you need to embrace change, cherish competition and think bigger. BOLDER. And that’s what we expect from every member of the Chrysler team, in every role. It takes a nimble company to compete in the global marketplace and, today, our products are sold in more than 120 countries around the world. You’ll find Chrysler a fast-paced work environment—one that will keep you challenged and growing from day one.

LEADERSHIP 

You’ll work with people who exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit, act with integrity and are accountable for delivering what they promise. We’ll make sure you have the chance to prove yourself right from the start, and ongoing opportunities to make an impact. Chrysler is a meritocracy. How far and how fast you grow in your career is yours to own. You’ll get the freedom to think for yourself, the encouragement to share your ideas and the rewards to make it worth your while. 

PASSION

At Chrysler, we don’t look at the product we produce as simply a car or a truck or a minivan. These are truly labors of love. To us, every design, every piece of engineering, every new technology that makes up our offering represent opportunities to innovate…explore…invent. You can apply yourself in ways you never imagined at Chrysler. The energy is dynamic.

COOPERATION

We may be independent thinkers, but we’re a team at Chrysler, committed to treating everyone with dignity and fairness. We’ll expect you to bring—and voice—your point of view. You’ll work with people from different countries, different backgrounds and different disciplines who offer totally different perspectives. And we know that embracing our differences makes us stronger, more innovative and more in tune with the needs of our global client base.

RESPONSIBILITY 

As a responsible corporate citizen, we invest in our communities…help build a safe, sustainable environment for future generations…and encourage and promote the workforce of the future through education programs. We’re also committed to our team members. We respect each other’s roles and support each other’s growth.

We take great pride in our commitment to fostering an inclusive work environment where all employees are treated with dignity and respect. It's a commitment that starts at the top. The result? A genuinely collaborative workplace—one with extraordinary opportunities for you to bring your energy, your passion and your unique perspectives to the table.

It's why Chrysler is committed to fostering an environment where you can leverage your strengths, experiences and perspectives.

People power innovation. At Chrysler, we believe it is our diversity of talents and perspectives that allow us to take visionary approaches, strategically apply new technologies and forge ahead in our industry in innovation and performance.

Our Commitment

"As CEO of Chrysler Group LLC, I have taken on the role of executive sponsor of the Global Diversity Council to underline the importance of diversity in our company. I personally feel privileged to have the opportunity to lead this company…and to work with all of you to build this company and our great brands into all we know they can and should be. That effort starts with leadership.

Our Diversity Strategy and initiatives are governed by the Global Diversity Council, composed of the senior leadership of the company. The Global Diversity Council provides leadership on actions and initiatives contributing to our inclusive workplace culture and multicultural marketplace.

Great leaders are those who have the courage to challenge the obvious, to travel uncharted paths, to break away from convention and the old way of doing things, to be unpredictable to the competition and to go beyond the tried and tested—men and women who understand the concepts of service, of community and respect for others. That's the kind of behavior we all must expect of each other and of ourselves. It leads to an engaged culture.

Culture is the fabric that holds organizations together. It is not just an ingredient for success; it is the essence of success itself. What will make all of this possible is the culture we are going to build with great teams based on mutual respect and openness.

Chrysler Group LLC and its people have a future with promise. We will reach the full measure of that promise only as one, united diverse team."

Sergio Marchionne, Chairman and CEO, Chrysler Group LLC

Sustainability Overview

At Chrysler Group, our primary business objective is to create an exciting lineup of vehicles that consumers want to buy. In tandem with this objective comes a strong commitment to minimize the impact our products and processes have on the global environment, and to positively affect the people and communities where we do business. 

The path of sustainability is a core part of an ongoing cultural transformation at Chrysler Group that seeks to meet the business demands of today without compromising the capacity of future generations to meet their needs. The values of sustainability guide our decisions and actions as we strive to build a more secure future for our employees, customers, suppliers, dealers and society as a whole.

Chrysler Group’s alliance with Fiat S.p.A., a recognized global leader in sustainability, has allowed us to significantly expand our sustainable mobility efforts. By leveraging the strengths of the two companies, the partnership is pursuing an enhanced long-term product strategy resulting in greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, while achieving the economies of scale necessary for long-term viability.  

The Company’s transformation is being led by men and women who embrace new perspectives and are not afraid of change. We are developing fully engaged employees by cultivating diversity, inclusion and a spirit of volunteerism among our workforce.

“Sustainability is the foundation that must define our Company and guide our decisions and actions. It is the best path to guarantee merit and dignity to the results we achieve.”

    Project Chief Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Auburn Hills, MI
    Anonymous Employee in Auburn Hills, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Chrysler in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Chrysler recruiter emailed to notify me of the opening and again 10 days later to remind me. I had had an initial phone screening with her 3 months earlier for a different position. I sent an online application and 2 months later got called to an interview with the Systems Responsible (Director), a DR (Manager) and another PC (Program Manager).
    The interview was short: 45min. It started with an explanation of the complex matrix org. chart, an overview of my career, the reason to leave my current employer and then behavioral/situational questions. There was no time for questions for my part which left me unsatisfied as I had time to sell myself but no time to find out if I will be a good fit and have a fair chance to be happy and successful in this role.
    Two weeks later I got a voicemail from a person from a 3rd party company in Oregon with an offer sent through email. After overnight review I called him back and explained offer is inferior to my current compensation and floated a higher figure that would motivate me to change. The hired negotiator circled back with HR and in an hour sent me a 1-liner email saying they can't accommodate. I declined the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell us of an occasion where you were not satisfied with your performance
      Tell me of a time when you need it to use creativity to solve a problem
      Give us an example of a time when you needed to go beyond your responsibilities to understand the customers expectations

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer too close to my current compensation. Better base pay but slightly lower accounting for the lower benefits.
