CNC Set up Class A (Former Employee) – London, ON – 26 November 2016
Great place to work when they have work / contracts. Good structure within the workplace ( unionized ). Great pay and benefits. They need to hire more maintenance workers. They need new machines and replacement parts.
Great structure, pay, benefits
Management jumping the seniority list for callbacks.
Production Welder (Former Employee) – London, ON – 1 August 2016
A typical day would start with crane checks and equipment checks. The parts we made went to some amazing projects around the world. Management always treated me good. My co-workers were good but the hardest part was we worked in separate booths (because we are welders) so I someone had a question you had to go into their booth and interrupt their work. Any part fixed and passed by QC always felt good.
Labourer / Overlay Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 December 2014
I work on pipes doing spot repair, overlay(manual or machine operated). I learned handling welding machines (MIG and TIG), operating cranes. The management is fine and my co-workers are awesome. I do not see hard part on my job because once I learned it then I can do it alone. The most enjoyable part of my job is when my Lead Hand cook barbecue for us and eat dinner together with all my co-worker.
Welder (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 February 2014
Friendly all around in and out of the shop. I learned that welding chrome is not for me. the top management persons were not very organized with this company. I didn't think they should be running it at all. Co-workers were great, but like everywhere there's that odd duck.
Hardest part was trying to get much needed stuff from Safety for the night shift.
Shop supervision was great, Weld Inspection was way too picky, sometime going over tasks more than twice picking it apart.
I enjoyed working there, it was great other than the Chrome welding, which I think should be done outside or in a enclosed seprate well ventilated area, ot containing the entire shop.
BBQ dinners, pizza, beer at breaks, breakfasts, small night crews
unorganization, welding of chrome, grind dust all over everything. Apprentices grinding chrome build up all shifts.
