Close to home.
Business Administrator/Welder (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB7 November 2017
There was no room for advancement and company culture was outdated for this era. The company had lost pride in their work. The plant needed organization and a big clean up.
Pros
Close to home.
Cons
No room for growth with the company.

Welder/Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 October 2017
Hardest part of the job is the drive. I travel 83 kilometres one way and I start at 6 am. The traffic home is sometimes 2hrs drive home at night. The people are amazing.

Alstom Transportation
Employee Resource Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB21 February 2017
When I was employed by Alstom Transportation I was moved into various positions which I found to be a very good learning experience.

However, since Alstom Transportation was a third party contract company managing a CPR shop, it was difficult to manage the demands from Alstom Transportation, CPR and the unions collective agreement.
Pros
I enjoyed working with the shop staff employees.
Cons
I felt I was stuck in the middle between, Alstom Transportation, CPR and the union.

Incompetent, rude and clicky
Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 February 2017
Middle management is totally incompetent, no tools, no parts, no guidance and they expect deadlines to be met. If you don't fit in with their clicky culture they shun and bully you to the point where you feel you're back in high school.

Avoid at all costs. Making this LRT train in Ottawa safe and on time is a joke and will be a miracle if they pull it off.

Job would have been great if they were organized and fired most of the middle management. Lots of favoritism going on too.
Pros
pay rate was ok
Cons
forced overtime, no respect, no tools or parts to work with

Il n'y a plus beaucoup de défi à relever dans cette entreprise, les gens d'expérience n'ont plus leurs place.....
37années en usinage lourd (turbine hydrolique) (Current Employee) –  Sorel-tracy7 January 2017
Entreprise qui fonctionne avec des hauts et des bas de charges de travaille. L'expérience des employés est très peu considéré, de sorte qu'ils ont l'impression de perdre leur temps et leurs talents .
Malgré que les salaires sont bons pour un machiniste ,un journalier est presque aussi bien rémunéré qu'un métier spécialisé.
Un machiniste a besoin de défis pour évoluer , et non pas demeurer stationnaire....
Pros
Rémunération sur équipe continues (12hres) intéressant, Grande précision sur de grande pièce représente un beau défi, quand il y a du travail. Usine propre, vestiaire propre
Cons
Peu de chance d'évoluer dans cette entreprise .
