Professional development – We encourage our employees to pursue their areas of interest and develop professionally. We focus on individual yearly goal setting, mid-year assessments and end of year reviews. We’ll give you the tools you need to succeed along with clear expectations. That’s not to say you’ll be micro managed. Yes, you will be accountable for results, but you’ll take ownership of your projects and enjoy some autonomy.

Best of both worlds – We’re a smaller organization compared with other North American automobile manufacturers, meaning you’ll get to enjoy the clout of a global organization with a reputation for quality and innovation, but can still enjoy a smaller company atmosphere.
