Financial Controller (Current Employee) – Williamsburg, IA – August 14, 2018
Expects associates to invest 60+ hours/week for average pay. If you don't invest 60 hrs/week you will not be successful. Magna is so lean every salary associate is overworked. Moral is low but Magna continues to attract talent because they are a very large company that is doing well. If I knew what I know now I would not have come to work for Magna.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 15, 2018
We would go into work and work for a coupke of hours then stand around because there were no parts the rest of the night. The job was pretty easy but standing around all night with nothing to do is very disturbing.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – August 9, 2018
Its a nice plce, the people there are supper nice and are willing to work with you when you have situations come up. some jobs in this plant are easy going and others are fast passed it really just depends on where you are place.
Assembly line that shuts down due to poor communication between higher-ups
Assembly Operator (Former Employee) – Grand Blanc, MI – August 7, 2018
Work is easy to grasp but the lack of communication is a problem when nearly an entire shift can be left hanging due to the prior shift supervisor not telling the next shift there is no work to be done, wasting time and gas for the assembly operators.
Strategic Buyer (Current Employee) – Troy, MI – August 3, 2018
Great internal upper management who have your back and support you as needed. Allows you to work independently and great work life balance. The hardest part of my job is working with directors who have clear issues with woman, who are degrading and yet they keep their jobs even after numerous reports to HR. Magna needs to work on this aspect of business.
Excellent compensation, benefits, opportunity to get training, volunteer for community opportunities, profit sharing.
Upper Managers who are degrading towards woman due to religious beliefs.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – July 31, 2018
Management is great at Magna very productive and easy going. A typical day is kind of stressful and very busy, hardly any downtime. The most enjoyable thing about Magna is the people and communication between one another. The hardest part for me was learning where everything belongs thru out the warehouse.
Team Lead, Paint Systems Technician (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – July 20, 2018
DexSys is a great place to work overall. They tend to weed out the lazy individuals with the work schedule, which helps one get a promotion. At times the management team will type cast so you will only be advanced so far. They have good benefits and wages, but family life can cause some issues when you do not want to work 7 days a week
Contract Engineer Consultant (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – July 20, 2018
The overall Program manager for the work cell that I was in created an absolute delight of a work environment. The shifts were a little wonky and took sometime to get used to but other than that this was a great place to work for as a contractor and an engineer.
ForkLift Operator (Former Employee) – Belvidere, IL – July 20, 2018
Get to work and get right to working management really wasnt around much. Workers from different shifts were constently bumping heads cause everyone did their own type of work or felt it wasn't their job to do.
Materials Supervisor (Former Employee) – Township of Shelby, MI – July 19, 2018
Much of the culture was to get your resume updated and step on whomever you needed to in order to advance. Decisions were made rapidly and with career advancement in mind. Dog eat dog world would be the best description.
