Process Technician (Current Employee) – Holland, MI – July 31, 2016
Magna is a pretty big company. Some buildings are better than others. I love the work I do but somethings just have to give. I would love to stay but management have a clue and 7 days Mandatory isn't my thing anymore. You can learn a lot with the unique molding we do but overall if things change it could be a better company.
This company was bought out and ruined the pay is the only thing that is decent all the workers and production is impossible. There machines can't even function to run a whole shift they stop running and take awhile to be fixed.
Technical Team Leader (Former Employee) – Moonville, SC – April 3, 2016
I have learned a lot from Magna from operating, trouble shooting, and quality of press lines, I was trained on the apprenticeship program for tool maker and I am very thankful for that. It is a difficult fast paced job. Very demanding.

Magna is an OK job, it pays well but your limited to doing different things. Once you get good at a specific assignment, you will eventually become stuck there. The hardest part of the job is making it through the shift. Time seems to slowing go by because its repetitive work.
Tooling Supervisor (Former Employee) – Carrollton, GA – March 10, 2016
Supervised 9 tool Makers in the repair and Pm of inhouse tooling. Attended engineering meetings for new programs. Trained in 5s, SafeStart and Leadership. The hours could be very long when there were tooling issues to correct. It was very rewarding to see the Team come together when the pressure was on and achieve things that others did not believe could happen.
Sander (Former Employee) – Benzonia, MI – February 27, 2016
My typical work day was me standing and sanding car arm rests right after they came off of the mold. what I learned is that it is a very hard on your hands and with standing for long periods of time. Management was ok My co-workers were ok, I was just there to do my job so I could save my money for a place to live. The hardest part of the job was the standing on a concrete floor with no mats. There was really no enjoyable part of this job, it was a factory job
Magna was fun and the people who worked for them was good
Press Operator (Former Employee) – East China, MI – December 16, 2015
Look at a broad to see what press you where on. And then you go to the press and do your job. How to mix the press and packing the parts. Management was lax did not do their job. My co-workers where great and friendly. Finding management to fix the press. Just to go to work everyday and to talk to co-workers.
Terrible work environment with terrible management and team leaders
Assembly Line (Former Employee) – Shepherdsville, Ky – August 26, 2015
Let me start off by saying. Stay very far away from this company if you know whats best for you. They will wear you down and not in a good way. I went in to this company hoping for the best but when I started it was the opposite. The management will be-little you and talk down on you. The team leaders obviously have depressing lives. Majority of them are very miserable and look for the new hires to take it out on. When you are trained on 1 job you will be taken off of that job to do something completely different and expected to know how to do the previous job after doing it 1 or 2 times. The turnover rate is extremely high and most wonder why. It is quite apparent to why it is that way. Don't even think about calling in if you have an emergency or anything for that matter you will be terminated right on the spot. You have been warned. Don't be roped in by the 14.50 an hour pay it is not worth it at all.
