The best part of working at FCA (Chrysler, Brampton Assembly) is the wages -$35.00/hour for unskilled manual labour. Benefits are mediocre. Work is monotonous and hard on the joints. There are easy jobs in inspection and material handling. Selection for those jobs is by seniority.
I personally would not recommend working in Auto Assembly for a young person. It would be better to get a good education in a high demand profession than to work a boring job and potentially oneself. I'm amazed at the number of 2nd and 3rd generation autoworkers at Brampton Assembly.
$34.00 for unskilled manual labour, easy to get time off work for personal reasons, I've worked with some great people.
Manual labour, joint injuries, boredom, lack of advancement opportunities, some fellow employees and management not so nice to work with
It's a fast work environment and very collaborative. I learned to focus on the main pain point of the organization and tackle these points to improve the bottom line of the organization. Management styles is very open and collaborative, listen the main concerns. The culture of the organization is paternalist. The hardest part of the job is to meet the dead line and production quotas to be able to supply the final assembly lines world wide. The most enjoyable part of the job was the nominations of employee of the month.
The work is beyond easy, the people there are all about power, rude people, boring work to the point you feel stupid. It honestly made me so miserable here and it sucks so bad. the pay was good but the people brought me down on a daily basis to the point where I would fake sick to avoid seeing certain people.
