    Amazing place to be an intern. They teach you a lot about EVERYTHING.

    I worked at Magna Powertrain as an intern (more than an year)


    Management cares about the interns/co-ops. Your learning experience and your contribution matter to them. They focus on training you, not just so they can meet quotas and have a better reputation, but so they can mold the best magna employee out of you. WHich is a good thing, because if you do well, you get a full time position.

    An example of this is their willingness to send you to many different training sessions so you can learn about every component in the company so you understand how it works as a whole. As a student, I was very happy with my experience. NEver had to get anyone coffee, not once. haha. For the most part there's something to do. Sometimes you have down time but its tolerable amount. Everyone is friendly and tries to contribute to your learning experience. They try hard to fix their reputation. They are pretty good to their employees in terms of networking sessions/activities/interaction.


    High turnover rates.
    Like every company, some people are plain a**holes and some will give you a hard time.
    If you have a crappy mentor teaching you, you're just plain unlucky because you cant switch around.
    understaffed, but trying to change that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Magna is doing a lot better than before in terms of office culture. I would be harder on the employees in terms of organization/meeting deadlines and train them to interact better with suppliers/customers.
    Also, Id make sure to hold more people responsible for their actions. Seems like finding out who caused a problem is a problem. accountability is lost. Also, focus on having all departments work in sync with eachother while still making sure that each department does their job and ONLY their job. That would help decrease the amount of firefighting going on.

    Positive Outlook
