Mechanic (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 8 December 2017
Buttweld area is un healthy, lots of smoke coming from the machine, environment and the machine is dusty and dirty, not good to inhale those fumes coming out of the machine. Lots of outdoor repairs too and it's not good during winter time. Pay is not great, lots of companies out there that pay more if you have a red seal. Older mechanic do less and will take advantage of the new hire.
Pension only if you start at early age, good only for laborer where they can get high hourly rate compare to other company
30% only covered for safety shoes, no tool allowance, dirty place and outdoor work at extreme temperature, not enough time for family
