People walk in there and think that the union is god that they can get away with ANYTHING because the union will always get their jobs back . This is why there is such a terrible atmosphere in plants . Terrible work habits , people choose money over morals and anything goes .
Program Management Engineer (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – July 10, 2018
I was brought in as a contractor thru an agency. FCA policy at that time was that agency employees were not elgible to be hired direct..once and agency head always an agency head! Most of the engineers and technical staff I worked with were agency as well.

Management is uniformly unqualified. FCA is full of dichotomy that will mesmerize even the most experienced political navigator. Workers are largely unappreciated, unrewarded, and under-compensated. Life at FCA is about perception, not about actual qualifications or results.Just look good being an oxygen thief..
Work life balance can be good with the right position / manager.
Uneducated managers that prove to be incompetent, Old school thinkers that got them into bankruptcy still in place doing damage.

Manager, Kokomo Transmission Plant (Current Employee) – Kokomo, IN – July 2, 2018
After 20+ years if your in manufacturing, management takes you to where they want you with not a concern for what you want. If you are not in manufacturing but in engineering or some other support group, Fiat Chrysler is a good place to work and balance life. However on the manufacturing side, M-F 12 to 14 hours a day are normal and Saturdays, 12 hour days are normal. Demands require 24/7 involvement and you never can do enough and you never go home feeling like you done well, opposite is true they make you feel that you never done enough. Factual!
Salary, Vacations, Holidays
Holidays - you never get off, balance of home life to work - work is life, managment only cares that you do what they want not what would be mutually benefical
