Pros

Great Pay, can be rewarding at times

Cons

Very little assistance from upper management, always so busy that you can never do things the right way. Upper management wants you to document everything you do, rather than doing it. You spend five times the amount of time documenting what you do on a daily basis then it took the time to do, and can be very frustrating

Advice to Management

Assist your floor supervisor and reduce the amount of work proofing

    The pay was not worth the mental abuse.

    Pros

    Its a great place to get experience for your first or second job and learn mental toughness and the fine art of taking abuse. You will know what you like and don't like to do for a living.

    Cons

    PT is run on fear and intimidation. The don't develop people or skills, they just use people up until they break and then find fresh meat. You could work 16 hour days (8 hrs of it unpaid of course) and it will not be enough to satisfy your management. Never a thank you or a "You did a Good Job", just criticism. If you are not made permanent within the first year, you need to find a new job, because you will never be made permanent. Actually, when you take a job at Chrysler remember to think short term, you should not stop looking for a another job. If you like what I've described, then you will do well there. They will really like you.

    Advice to Management

    They don't take advise.

    Pros

    At Chrysler there was a lot of freedom, and that was great. I dabbled in many, many different areas, and learned a ton. When you work hard, you are complemented. When you slack, people won't give you a hard time. You have control of the type of day you are going to have, and the type of employee you want/have to be.

    Cons

    The cons, as usual, go hand-in-hand with the pros. People who take advantage of the freedom weigh the company and culture down. There is very little fear, very little repercussions, and because of that, inefficiency and bad attitudes spawn and prosper. Freedom also exist (here we go again) with the management. Just as employees become complacent, so too do the the managers. Again, the product and quality of work suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Be harsher, be meaner, stop taking it easy.
