well paid, secured job but really poor management, no respect for employees
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Alberta13 December 2017
I have been working for 34 yrs, this place used to run like family but not anymore, as management is only only concern about investors. Employees are treated like slaves, no respect, day to day poor training for required jobs, I need to get out asap.. If you don't want to treat like prisoner, don't join this company. There is job discrimination as well. Management does not plan well and they are concern about protecting their own jobs so you can under stand how toxic environment is there.
Pros
Some benefits
Cons
Toxic Environment
