Good pay but very unorganized
Electrical Test Technician (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON28 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.
Pros
Good pay, Steady hours, Lots of overtime
Cons
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.
