Management does not care about its employees.
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB2 November 2017
If you enjoy a leaky/freezing cold building where every machine is second hand from another company and management that does not care about its employees then by all means apply here.

This company does not care about those that work for it. Learn a machine and do the job well but don't expect any kind of compensation when it comes to a pay raise for working harder.

Every machine in this building is second hand from someone else that has sold it through auction to get rid of their problem! But Capitol will buy it and try to bring it back to life...

The building is almost as old as Winnipeg which would be fine if it was actually maintained but its not... Every department has a leaking roof and at least 3 holes in the wall and that is being generous... There is no heat unless you work in the paint shop which is beyond dirty...

When it comes to working overtime, 10 hour days 5 days a week isn't enough for them. No you are expected to give up weekends too usually for doing something that, if proper planning had been done in advance, could have been taken care of during "normal" work hours...

All in all this place is a joke to put it nicely... DO NOT WORK HERE!

Things are not as they appear
General Worker (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 September 2017
Your made to feel like part of the team when your hired. That only lasts a couple of hours. Supervisors are young and band together to cover up for eachother. Throwing fault on the workers and not taking responsibility for their inability to do their job. Workers themselves are great and very friendly. Company preaches they take H/S serious but thats only to secure contracts and if you raise a concern your shown the door.
Do not...do not accept a job here!!
Pros
Wages arent to bad
Cons
Management and abuse of position to keep their jobs

Learn here then get out.
Machine operator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB29 June 2017
You can learn how to operate several machines relevant to fabrication and erecting in the steel industry.

The management is very poor consisting primarily of one family which shirks responsibilities and blame nearly daily.

Hardest part? Waking up in the morning and hating myself everyday, the actual work was enjoyable, but pay/benefits and the management driving a bus over top of the employees at every possible moment wears you down.
Pros
Free Standup comedy every Thursday.
Cons
Poor pay, erratic overtime, asking/forcing employees to cancel holidays.

I enjoyed working for this company. I got hired right away, my coworkers were very friendly, helpful and supportive. The hardest part of the job was the management.

Not a place I would recomend to anyone unless for temporary income, while continuing to seek better opportunities.
QA Document Controller & QC Inspector (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB22 February 2014
Unstable. Poor work environment. Poorly managed. Poor training structure, but very demanding supervision and policies. Quick to terminate rather than improve or correct staff capabilities. High employee turn overs - no appreciation shown to shop workers.
Pros
None, there are little or no incentives for shop employees to stay.
Cons
Recently all reviews and pay increases were placed on hold for an indefinate period, many have not seen a pay increase in 3+ years, except for friends or family of top management, not the most safe or healthy work environments.
