    Lack of recognition for high level excperienced engineers

    Current Employee - Engineer in Auburn Hills, MI

    I have been working at Chrysler Canada full-time for 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

    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,

    I have been working at Chrysler Canada

    Pros

    - Good pay

    - Discount on cars and services

    Cons

    - Repetitive work
    - Can lead to injury overtime
    - Short breaks
    - Low morale

    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.

    Current Employee - Temporary Part Time in Windsor, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Chrysler Canada part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is decent, and the benefits are nice. Lots of nice perks if your in upper management like leased vehicles at a discount, and bonuses. You still get benefits if your not in management like health benefits, vehicle discounts, and vacation time.

    Cons

    Have to adapt to constant changes, if your in management you'll have to put in a lot of hours, especially if your new. That also means putting in hours on the weekends. You don't have the union on your side since your in management. Employees tend to dislike the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to show more concern for the employees and listen. Find ways to save on costs without making someones job harder than it already is.
