The tasks are routine-based, which means that the schedule tends to be stable. The company policy on overtime is "give-and-take" which means that, depending on the workload, some weeks you can do 2-3 hours less, some weeks 2-3 more. Culture of flexibility for appointments and other realities of life. Family-oriented spirit. In some aspects the tasks can be almost monotonous and extremely repetitive, however that is a personal preference - different people have different personalities that thrive in different work environments. Also most buildings have a lot of services such as a gym, cafeteria, souvenir-shop, and even a dry cleaner/seamstress.
Electrical Test Technician (Current Employee) – Thunder Bay, ON – 28 June 2017
While this job does pay well and the people I work with are great, the company seems to be all over the place. Communication is lacking between each individual area and everything seems to be rushed giving poor quality products. If you have no education in either electrical, welding or painting good luck with job security. People are always getting laid off left to right. The class 6 jobs that require education aren't as bad but there are still lay offs there too.
Good pay, Steady hours, Lots of overtime
Working in a chaotic environment and never feeling proud of the finished product, Politics present, Accountability out the window

Sign in and have a quick overview from shift before starting. Distributing supplies and products to assigned workers. The management team was great. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning more about the process and seeing how the airplanes were built.

Working at willowbrook yard for Bombardier Transportation as an Electrical Technician. Senios don't help. They want newcomers to do work for them and take credits away. Totally racist environment that if white guys don't work then it's okay .if brown guys don't then it's problem.

The work was great, when there was work to do. Poor organization and supply issues prevented a smooth production line. It was not a pleasant work atmosphere due to tension between management and staff. Co-workers were great.
