P05 Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON6 February 2018
It's a pleasure to work at Apotex. Although it can be challenging, the experience that I've gained in the last 6 years has been more than worthwhile. It's a fast paced, hardworking environment and I would recommend it to others.

Very Political!!!
Project Lead, Continuous Improvement (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON11 January 2018
The company is immensely political. employees are not supportive of other departments. In other words, everyone stabs others in the back while giving each other smile. Last but not least, Apotex is full of indians, and they only hire their own people. Therefore, qualifications mean nothing but connections there.

I good place to start out
Analytical Chemist (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON8 January 2018
A typical day as an analytical chemist requires you to perform a variety of testing regularly concurrently and under a tight deadline. You receive training across a wide breadth of tests including HPLC, GC, FTIR, UV-Vis.

Management seems to be operate in a traditional fashion.

Your peers are generally helpful and good natured.

Lack of future advancement and being overload with work are the hardest things about the job.

The most enjoyable things about the job are: the amount of different tests you will be trained with, many good mentors, good medical and dental coverage.
Pros
Routine schedule, good benefits, bonuses.
Cons
Raises are minimal, advancement is limited, weekend shift work.
