Pays the bills

Production Worker (Current Employee)
Belvidere, IL

I have been working at Chrysler part-time for more than 8 years

ProsDecent money for a tier 2 employee which is hard to find in my location with out a degree
Part time employees get overtime after 8 hours and time and a half on Saturdays, good while pursuing education.

ConsChange work schedule often
Repetitive work
management doesn't know how to run things
Put band aids on things rather than fix them correctly
Unless you have A shift your schedule sucks A= Mon-Thurs 6am to 430 pm B= Wed-Sat 6pm- 430am C= Mon+Tues 6pm-430am Fri+Sat 6am-430pm
Union is not that great
Could keep going but......

Advice to Senior ManagementTotally fire everyone and start fresh with management. Get some good fresh talent to help generate ideas. Take some risks on fixing machinery, it may stall production in short term but pay off in the long run.

Amazing Facility and a good place to work overall, but you're just a number here. Pretty much only hire in via contract

Tooling Engineer (Current Employee)
Auburn Hills, MI

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

ProsGood pay. Flexible hours generally. Amazing Facility. 16 holidays.

ConsEVERYTHING moves slooooow with so many levels of involvment. Just getting a phone after starting can take over a week. Overly political at most times with an often "them and us" approach to development. Movement within the company seems to depend greatly on the reputation of the department you hire into. Can't count on going direct from contract.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrive for a collective TEAM instead of "them and us" finger pointing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sales and Marketing

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Chrysler full-time for more than 10 years

Lack of support from upper management diciplinary culture.

Facility Project Manager (Current Employee)
Sterling Heights, MI

I have been working at Chrysler full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIt is hard to define the Pros, as there are so few. It used to be a great place to work around fifteen years ago.

ConsThere is no support from superiors, raises have not happened for over 6 years, benefits for salary are less than the people you manage, the people you manage make more than you do, not a team playing environment

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sales District Manager

Sales District Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Chrysler full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible and autonomous work from home schedule, as long as dealers and fieldwork is accomplished.

ConsPoor management selection and promotion process that has definitely been exposed during the automotive industry's downturn and subsequent company bankruptcy. The company politics are TERRIBLE. You are judged more favorably by your golf game and brown-nosing than your abilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop making the company Club-Med for unaccountable managers and their kids that follow them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Solid rewarding career

Toledo, OH

I worked at Chrysler full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat benefits/opportunities for advancement. Can make a lifetime at this company. Your voice is heard and coworkers are very supportive and understanding.

ConsNot a stranger to overtime at this place. Some instability in the sector/ industry outlook. Lot of frequent management changes.
