    Good place to learn nothing.

    Forklift Operator (Current Employee) Carrollton, GA

    ProsFast pace dont work the whole year if you permanent, great benefits, great shifts, got to be hired on first.

    ConsOnce you prove yourself as being a hard worker and love to be part of the team. Wait for about 1yr to 3yrs making about $10.00 to $10.50 before you get hired on. Third shift outside paint supervisor do even know his own job. to much negativity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a Team, there shouldn't be any supervisors coming in with a bad attitude. please pay attention to all 3 shifts, there is a lot of favoritism, no leadership.

    Too Many Hours - Top Management Abuse

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Carrollton, GA

    ProsPlenty of work and business is booming. Future of the company is very good. Very diverse portfolio.

    ConsUpper Management turns over constantly and expects more dedication to work than home and family. Worked there for 8 years and averaged 1-2 days off per month for over 4 years. No pay increases and very abusive language. Salary and Hourly employees were very dedicated and passionate but Management did not care and hid issues from Corporate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to Salary Support Staff and Hourly staff. Re-prioritize vision and goals.

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

    Great company to work for

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsTop company top management team is committed to doing the right thing, and there is a lot of positive momentum.

    ConsI really have no complaints about working here -- probably because I like all the people I work with -- those that I work wtih on a day-to-day basis, as well as those on a more incidental basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

    Unbelievable experience ! Professionals at their peak performance. Too bad they relocated to mexico. Jobs galore.

    Quality Assurance Inspector (Former Employee) Syracuse, NY

    ProsGreat Pay. Great Coworkers. Ambiance is just pure heaven on earth. Management is just superb, under Bob Bowers tutelage.

    ConsNo longer in the Syracuse area, having relocated to Mexico. Too bad that for $1 less for transfer cases, they outsourced American jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove back to Syracuse to build our economy, not theirs

    Worst years of my life! Nightmare!

    Machine Operator (Former Employee) Syracuse, NY

    ProsNone. Magna took over New Process Gear from Chrysler for the sole purpose of closing us and moving the business to Mexico. All employees including management were treated horribly.

    ConsTreated like animals. Cutting costs was the only important thing. People were constantly being fired just to reduce the workforce before the plant closing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have no souls!

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