forklift driver (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 4 November 2015
This job pays a decent wage but be prepared to work 6 days a week, EVERY WEEK. You may be stuck on the same shift for several months at a time. You get a 10 minute relief break approximately 2 hours in, a 20 minute lunch at 4 hours, and another 10 at 6 hours in. Breaks are strictly enforced, do not even try to take an extra minute. Sometimes I did not get a lunch break until 6 hours into my shift. Managers don't give you any feedback on how you're doing. You are also expected to show up to your shift early. I'm pretty sure that's illegal. This workplace is not recommended.
Too much overtime, unpleasant managers, heavy workload, busy stressful environment.
Stressful environment where mgt bonuses based on production are the driving force of their mistreatment of the line workers.
line worker (Former Employee) – Windsor Ontario – 22 September 2015
On their website they claim "We take great pride in our employees. Focus on our employees is substantiated by the many programs and systems that we have in place to ensure a safe and healthy work environment, and an environment that encourages employee input, growth, and open communication." It looks good on paper, but is not practiced in real life. Machine break downs, unavailable parts delay, and some workers attitudes affect the ability to make production quotas. If that is not enough, the management team practices putting the screws to the supervisory staff who are more that willing to pass the pain onto the floor workers. The company's claim of being interested in communication with their employees and customers is in name only. There are many line workers who will assist new workers in learning the jobs, but unfortunately there are enough who don't, and that only adds to the stress of the numbers game. Some less than honest workers have no personal checks against setting up temp workers for the fall when production numbers are low, or when they make mistakes that slow or shut the lines down. To their harm, there are certain supervisory staff, who if they judge you in a negative light, will go to whatever ends possible to cast you in the worst possible light, magnifying any opportunities/mistakes of shortcomings, while totally ignoring hard work and effort. Training is minimal, and judgment is plentiful with those folk. If you are looking for a job that has the potential to stress you to the max, or one that will frustrate you to no end... then AP Plasman may be themore... right fit for you.less
Some good people that don't treat others with the contempt that others do
Management and Supervisory Staff disconnect to line workers, which promotes blame shifting
