"Working at Aptiv and being able to see our daily efforts in the vehicles of some of the greatest brands in the automotive sector is very rewarding. In Braga, we have a new technical center with amazing working conditions that, along with the support and dynamism that you feel here, makes Aptiv a pleasant place to work every day."
"A lot could be said about Aptiv’s focus on creating a greener, safer and more connected world. Indeed, innovation is at the company’s core, but I would also like to emphasize the opportunities of growth inside Aptiv and the great work environment I’ve found here. From the first contact, I felt a connection with the management team, and I knew right then and there that I wanted to be part of this company. I feel valued by my manager and peers, and we are always sharing knowledge and growing together. This is the kind of environment that allows people to stay motivated and evolve as professionals. Also, we have the opportunity to witness the real-life impact of our work, which adds another layer of excitement."
Aptiv is a great place for people who want to have an impact on our world and mobility and, at the same time, value growing together with the company."
"I’ve been working at Aptiv for more than 10 years as a quality engineer, and I’ve learned and grown so much over the years. The Castelo Branco plant is betting on high-voltage harnesses production, and I’m glad that I belong to the team that is responsible for developing these new projects and that we are applying all of the problem-solving tools that I’ve had the chance to develop over time. All of my colleagues are very supportive. We work as one team, and we play to win."
