FCA recognizes the importance of helping its employees balance their work and personal lives. That is why we have implemented a variety of policies and programs that help employees manage stress, stay healthy, save money, and spend more time with their families.
- FCA Alternative Work Schedules
FCA employees are not restricted to the traditional eight-hours-per-day, 40-hours-per-week work schedule. Hours per day and starting/quitting times each day may vary. In most cases, employees are permitted to work fewer than 10 days in a two-week period.
- FCA Telework Program
Employees, with their supervisors’ approval, may work away from the job site. Whether an employee may telecommute will generally depend on the characteristics of a task or project, the scheduling arrangement, and other variables.
- Business Casual Dress
Business casual dress is a year-round policy at FCA.
- Free Parking
Free parking is available at all offices.
- Transportation Subsidy
FCA employees who use public transportation to commute to work may be reimbursed up to $230 per month for expenses of buses, subways, trains, and eligible commuter highway vehicles (including van pools). Employees who ride bicycles to work at least 50 percent of the time in any give month may receive reimbursement for certain expenses.
- Travel Compensation Program
For every night that an employee is on official travel more than 50 nights during the given calendar year, the employee receives $50 in travel compensation.

FCA full-time permanent employees whose adjusted gross family income is $60,000 or less per year and who meet certain eligibility requirements may receive the child care subsidy.

CPR, first aid, and defibrillator training courses are also offered.
