Not the best
Team Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Newaygo, MIJune 15, 2018
There was one manager who was thoroughly enjoyable to work for but the business unit manager in the assembly department was not to be trusted and he's seemed to keep his job even despite some quite disrespectful behavior to his subordinates.

He's lied about things, thrown the people who work for him under the bus to hide his own mistakes, talked condescendingly to almost anybody who provides alternate ideas, made very poor decisions on who to hire, fire, and keep around, and ultimately created an uncomfortable work environment.

Some people at Magna in Newaygo are cool and I love them, but this isn't a place I'd recommend for anybody unless it was the only option they had left.
Pros
some cool people to work with, leave for lunches, work with teams
Cons
Careless and unprofessional management, unexpected overtime, almost impossible to put your personal life first, not worth the money

Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Liberty, MOJune 13, 2018
The work keeps you busy, the pay is decent, and people are friendly.It isnt hard to learn the work if you are willing and it is easy work if you just keep moving. Management will try to work with you as long as you are hard working and do your job. The hardest part of the job can be the long hours, the heat in the summer, and the toll that it can take on the body.
Pros
Decent pay, some bonuses
Cons
long hours

Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Liberty, MOJune 13, 2018
I moved to KC, MO with the plan of making enough to buy a house back in MI, but all i did was work 12 hour days and come back to MI earlier then planned. Magna is a great company with many benefits that can be suited to fit your personal needs.

It was like the ( stepford wife's movie ) looks great on the outside but it's rotten on the inside.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Lansing, MI DexsysJune 10, 2018
At first the place seams great ,very clean very put geather . But then you get to know the tyrannical back stabing management . If you have any Ideas that are not consent with magments then you will be rail roaded out. The new maintenance department is a good old boys Paradise. If you don't know someone high up or kiss a ton of azz your are not going anywhere.
Pros
New equipment and and Clean
Cons
Mangment, back stabing co-workers, and a life sucking obbess.

Welder/quality tech (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYJune 7, 2018
management is absolutely horrible. You have a huge target if you question anyone or anything, if youre a good worker they will try to kick you out the door.
You have no vacation days to use in your first 3 years. They hold them for the 2 shut downs.
If you don't have a family and all you care about is money, this is the place for you.
Pros
money and benefits
Cons
management, no time off, take your vacay days for the 2 shut downs

Buddy system
Quality Liaison (Current Employee) –  Piedmont, SCJune 5, 2018
On a typical day you would enter the department to find which stations someone told mangment what machine they didnt want to work at. At which time they will move people around that they are friends with. No real leadership.
Pros
days off
Cons
short breaks, no leadership, hours 7- until (maybe 7 or 12 depending on the day)
