Managements always a complete mess and no one ever seems to know what they're doing but besides that not many other complaints. Job has a good pay, meet interesting people and is a good pace for anyone to work. Life balance also is inconsistent as the shifts always change every 2 weeks.
co-workers are very helpful and supportive.
process is streamlined and work productivity is always increasing.
best part of job when we receive new parts to process and in turn get to learn lots of things
A typical day at work would include coming into work on time, assembling engines as they pass through on the conveyor belt, having a few breaks, and finally going home after. While working at Chrysler, I learned the importance of time and money after a long days work.
Chrysler Canada is the best job I have ever worked. Very clean and comfortable working conditions. Learn all about Chrysler vehicles. Worked in the manufacturing plant where I worked in the under body department. All the employee and staffing are very friendly. Hardest part was the non stop working conditions.
During my shifts I was required to take parts to the assembly line and ensure that I did so in a timely matter so as not to stop the workers that were doing their jobs. The workers are very friendly, especially during my my training for tasks. The hardest part of the job was making sure to stay on time when other workers were slow filling up the racks with the parts I needed to take to the line. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work as a team with everyone that was associated with my tasks.
Working in an automotive assembly plant is a high-pressure experience that pushes you to your limits and helps you break them. I've accomplished a lot working here and learned how to surpass my limits.
great team for the resident engineering department
I work in the paint shop in Chrysler Canada. Everyday is typically the same thing. You get assigned to a job and you do that specific job for 8 hours no matter how hard or easy it is. Everyone learns to adapt to the job they are assigned after a while if they are not used to it. The co-workers are all friendly and they are very respectful of your work space. The hardest part is the monotonous factor of your job, the fact that you are doing the same thing over and over again on a assembly line that never stops.
Pros: A growing company always taking employee safely and environment very seriously, Extremely nice and easy to get along with coworkers/supervisors and bosses.
Cons: occasional long 12 hour shifts
A typical day of work would be filing, answering telephone inquiries, data entry, along with other admin work
As a 15 year employee I have had many opportunities to better myself both as a person and as an employee. Most Chrysler employees are extremely loyal and dedicated. I count my co-workers as my friends and extended family, and look forward to being at work.
part-time line workers are trained on a job and are expected to learn it in 4 hours. Once the job is learned the supervisor will call you in to do that job because a regular operator is away. The more you are called in the more jobs you are likely to learn. You do the same jobs over and over again until you are sore and tired of working in the plant. the only reason you end up going back is for the money. So you suck it up and take your acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen tablets hoping that they will cure your aching muscles so you can go in and make some more money. But the constant repetition of work is so slow and boring your mind is not stimulated at all. the part-time wadge is now $14.00/hour less than full-time wadge so I'm sure that the part-timers are asking themselves constantly- is this even worth it?
