Supply Chain (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 September 2016
Most enjoyable part of the job was working with new software and tools and being autonomous. Co-workers were a little too busy and most people skipped lunch because of it. Lots to learn in short period of time. Great habits made on the job.
Good learning opportunities, technical environment, fun team building activities, fast-paced, upper management was very supportive, global experience, challenging
Long hours, negative work environment, overworked, manager did not give out recognition, imbalance of duties, very repetitive, not supportive team, felt alienated

Work was varied and always changing. When work was at a low, it was allowed to relax and take things at a slower pace. Deadlines were reasonably set and the work team was very sociable and always willing to help and or provide input.
Sociable co-workers, Varied work, reasonable deadline and work
weekends work to meat deadlines, international collaboration which could lead to loss in work hours
Staff (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 November 2016
A place to grow to learn new skills. Never a dull moment, ongoing changes are to be expected at all times. Be prepared and never under estimate your situation, change is inevitable.
True life experience for those who seek it, a good training ground to learn how to deal with bullies as you witness individuals target, ostracize and rally others to their cause to further their campaign.
Good work environment with nice people to work with but very poor pay with no scope to advance or becoming full time in the long run.
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 December 2014
Well reputed company with good management but it is a temporary contractual work through an agency with very minimum salary with no chance to advance ever. In the maximum of 23 months contract, there is only one pay increase of $0.25 after six months of employment. No opportunity of growing or even getting hired by the company directly makes the job less appealing.
One of the best companies I ever worked for, enjoyed learning new techniques.

Board repair/ hotbar, new hire orientation (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 March 2013
great place to learn about electronic production, co workers with different ethic backgrounds added to the learning experience. Scheduled breaks and lunches with a diverse menu and access to popular food outlets.It was not a pressured work environment but you needed to be focused on your specialty of work. Great staff to work with all the way up to the Director of that particular division that took interest in your work and your peace of mind. Every one did a proffessional job and had constant group updates. I would work there again
clean working conditions

This is a very friendly environment to work in as the people here are very helpful. I find that the repetitive nature of the job does not challenge me enough. I did learn some very fundamental aspects to the manufacturing world.
Customer Focused Team Lead Technical Trainer (Former Employee) – Toronto ON – 31 July 2013
Working on the line 24/7 shift environment. Learned how to operate ABB Robots and TT Tabber Stringer equipment. Coworkers are multicultural tending to majority coming from middle east . Long hours and noisy environment ~ 80 decibels noise level. The benefits are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 February 2014
We each have our own stations on the line. Each shift has a work quota to be met at the end of the shift. Its very challenging at times to hit the quota but the goals are attainable. During my time working there I have learned a lot in regards to machinery and the product we manufacture. Working with a team is best we help each other out and share knowledge how to do things simple and in less time.
