DON'T DO IT
worker (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ONOctober 28, 2013
Pros: you get to leave at the end of the day
Cons: you have to go in in the morning
Terrible terrible experience at this plant - badly managed and now full of ignorant Mexican so called managers that do not have a clue and have no idea about health and safety values.
They fire you if you dare to speak out.
Drug misuse is so apparent but a blind eye is turned to it, the supervisors are a joke with most bowing to the Mexicans.
I would – more... recommend McDonalds rather than here. – less

Good stable employment
Project Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Montréal, QCOctober 26, 2013
Pros: services in the buildings - gym and etc
Cons: monotony and repetitiveness of the tasks
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 – more... 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. – less

Productive and Exciting
Business Analyst - Responsibilities and Tasks (Former Employee), Toronto, ontOctober 25, 2013
Pros: exciting organization
Cons: long hours
The company taught me, what it meant to be a professional and gave me the opportunity to advance and excel. People within the organization are fun, respectable and very hard working. Management gave me respect, treated me like an individual and showed me professionalism. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and it was never boring – more... and i learned something new and challenging everyday. – less

Supervisor was worst I ever worked for
just some temp (Former Employee), Richmond...horseshoe wayOctober 15, 2013
Cons: 10 minute drive to work.
Simple warehouse job pick and pack. Supervisor's mood was dictated how he did gambling on NFL or whatever. Usually hung over Monday morning. Just disappeared into the office. Came out after break and would just stand there and smell like booze and curry. Co-workers were awesome but was a revolving door with the temps as supervisor would abuse them. – more... "Hey temp. come here". The full time guys would lose complete engines, yet abuse the temps for a small mistake. Should be an easy place to work but supervisor would do nothing or stand there barking at people. No one respected him as he just had a heavy hand. No supervisory skills whatsoever. I would be surprised if he is still there...BRP Richmond...horseshoe way – less

Liaison Engineer (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 2, 2013
Pros: you can get away with anything
Cons: you will not learn or advance
There are absolutely no consequences for poor performance. Because of this you will find many departments are at least 40% dead weight. People who cannot be counted on to be proactive with issues.

A high paced Aerospace company with thousands of employees so it did not feel like a family environment but a wonderful place to work and interact
Traffic Customs (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 22, 2013
I worked at Bombardier many hears ago and after 911, there were thousands of personnel laid off due to drop in Sales. Unfortunately for me I did have recall rights but the position I was in was out sourced. I loved working with this company but being a Unionized environment you are just a number and that was a draw back.

Great pay but will fire you very quick
Design Engineer (Former Employee), MontrealSeptember 6, 2013
Pros: high pay
Cons: they lie about length of contract
Be careful taking on contract here , manager does not care about you all they care is numbers, you will be surprised how soon you get fired.
If you are out of Quebec and do not know French then you will be most likely be the first one to be fired... In short don't get tempted by high hourly rate.
