    I worked at Magna International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clean work environment, air conditioned plant, light weight parts, quarterly bonuses based on performance.

    Cons

    Supervisors allow their Team Coordinators to show favortism and threaten employees on being wrote up if they question them on their reasons for forcing overtime on only specific employees.

    Advice to Management

    Put a tighter reign on your Team Coordinators. They should not be allowed to threaten thier employees with write ups every time they do not like a question that is being asked of them. It really does lower the employees morals.

    I worked at Magna International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay on time and the checks clear.

    Cons

    This company is structured based on a military industrial style. It follows strict hierarchy and creates pyramid structures for you to follow - and they expect you to follow it with no exception. With that said, your every effort to save the company time, money and grief will never be acknowledged if they guy above you is too afraid to bring it to his bosses attention - they function on fear. You are not human - they believe in money. Ironically, this company is the best example of a corporation stepping over dollars to pick up pennies. You will learn to hate it.

    Advice to Management

    None.
