Nice people, poorly run company
Shop floor (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford1 September 2015
The people you'll meet at B&D are stellar. Kind and fun to work with.

The work is another story. Each and every position is truly overloaded and underpaid.

You have to wait 6 months to get any type of benefits, 1 year before you're allowed to take a vacation day and 2 years before you are eligible for the company pension plan. Not, that it matters because you'll likely be let go LONG before you get to that point.

Turn over is high, they let people go at random with no warning what-so-ever and they over promise and definitely under deliver. Upper management is sorely lacking any type of connection with what's going on within their walls and are very much micro-managers who don't trust their department managers to do their jobs.

All in all, the work morale is the lowest I've ever seen at any job I've ever had and while the people are nice, they very much have an attitude of "I'm just here to make a paycheck for as long as I can".

Steer clear of this employer.

Relaxed environment, Barbeques, Good Safety Program
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, Ontario9 August 2015
This company isn't any different than every other one in Sudbury. They hire when they have the work and then lay you off when the work is gone.

They also brag about the $32/h machinist wages but you will never see it.

They also do not lay off in the order you were hired.

They promise overtime but that doesn't happen either.

It will take you six months to get benefits and two years to qualify for the company pension. If you get it, you will still possibly get a permanent layoff.

Be cautious and keep an open mind!
Monthly Barbeques
