I worked at Daimlerchrysler full-time (More than 8 years)
I like working for Chrysler but when Daimler came in to the picture it became a different Company to work for . Different objective from Daimler to what we know.
Downside of working at Daimler Chrysler was that upper management behavior changed because of job security. This change in behavior form the upper management effected people's behavior in the company.
Advice to Management
Don't let your company join forces with another company that will have a different objective from your company.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Daimlerchrysler (Sterling Heights, MI).
Initial Communication via phone, based on my previous experience with Chrysler Canada as project engineer, I was given a direct interview with the hiring manager, who I would be working with
I was offered a higher grade and a lower grade as well. I choose a position that I was confident that I can handle. I did negotiate on benefits
