    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits. It's pretty easy to move up there depending on which department you get hired in.

    Cons

    Sometimes not guaranteed the full time 40 hours per week. You go in the same time everyday and leave when job is done. Sometimes only bringing home 30 hours.

    Pros

    I believe Magna as a whole is a good company, I think it may just be certain plants that need some changes.

    Cons

    Very unorganized and chaotic, always feel like you are spinning your wheels and getting no where. vacation is accrued monthly, The more you do, the more they expect. no teamwork, no training, you are just thrown into the job and expected to do it. they claim to have open door policy but it seems like anything you have to say falls on deaf ears. Expected to work LONG hours. No balance between work and play.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Decent Pay, Union Representation, Clean working conditions, Employee input is welcomed. Overall this is a job for someone looking for reliable, physical work.

    Cons

    Nearly all of the jobs offered at Magna are highly repetitive. The toll these jobs can take on you is two-fold: Mental & Physical. Mentally, after spending hours upon hours of doing the same thing over again, the work becomes 100% thoughtless. At this point you either talk to your coworkers (who you may or may not want to talk to, esp. after hearing EVERYTHING they have to say) or you quietly perform your task (as management would prefer). The only thing I can compare to being on the line, isolated and alone with your thoughts for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week is what it must be like to be put into solitary confinement and there have been studies showing that this kind of isolation is may be the worst form of human torture. Secondly, the physical toll this work takes on you is insidious, painful and lasting. I call it Death from a million cuts. All I can say is that ANYTHING you do thousands of times over everyday will take its toll over time. I only worked on the line for 5 years and after a couple of surgeries, still have limited mobility and pain in my hands as well as joint pain in my knees, ankles and wrists.
