    Current Employee - Resident/Quality Engineer in Brampton, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Chrysler Canada full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It pushes you to work your hardest. I've had a few jobs with big and small companies in the past and I've never worked as hard as I have here in a Chrysler plant (headquarters is not as difficult). It's taught me many lessons like how to run a business, how to juggling many things at once, prioritizing, etc.

    Cons

    There's continuously a fight between quality and production. Working a union environment is pretty terrible as well. The union hates engineering and makes life very difficult for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect your staff from the union. Give us clear goals and targets and don't change them midway through.

    Lack of recognition for high level excperienced engineers

    I have been working at Chrysler Canada full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The different departments work well together as a unit. This engineers are supportive and caring and friendly and pull together with the pressure is on.

    Cons

    lack of recognitions for highly skilled engineers. Also they have recently eliminated all non representative staff pension plan. They didn't even grandfather the existing employees. but the union is not affected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognizing technical skill, leadership reviews are weak, they never follow up with job promises they seem embarrsed to explain why employees did not get that promotion

  3.  

    Highly engaging experience. Great team and managers that act as mentors to help develop you professionally.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay, decent perks.

    Cons

    Too much Overtime is required, six days of production and 9-10 hours is a lot to commit to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of movement between centres, this prohibits further learning,

    Pros

    - Good pay

    Cons

    - Repetitive work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Look for ways to increase morale
    - Change the 10 minute breaks to 15. This gives people a chance to go to the washroom.

    Pros

    great pay and benefits,

    Cons

    two or three swing shifts and not work for a woman...it is not easy
    union protects the lazy people who dont show up and the people who steal and show up drunk and high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the people who are slackers and drunk and not doing their job and hiding. union protects these people ....write them up every time and fire them.
