It's a very good place to learn and they have good teams
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Ville St-LaurentSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: dealing with customers
Cons: different shifts
Very busy on the phone taking order, giving the proper technical information, taking care of issues from the different departments such as credits, invoicing, promotions, quotes, transportation and emergencies for hospitals and home patients. I developed a ledger system with Ste-Justine Hospital for their orders and deliveries and emergencies.

Low paying and you have to 'encourage' (I call it babysitting) your co-workers!
Assembler (Former Employee), Gananoque, ONJune 24, 2013
Pros: pretty much guaranteed to get a job because they cant keep people from quitting!
Cons: minimum wage, mandatory overtime (50-60hr work weeks)
During my time at covidien I spent most of my work days trying to convince my co-workers to actually work. When I brought it to my lead hands attention that I was constantly trying to get people back to work, she told me to 'deal with it'. I told her I was getting paid to do my job, not to babysit grown people who are supposed to be there to do the – more... same thing. Which resulted in ME getting wrote up (the people who were not doing their jobs never even got talked too). Also, while working there my co-worker (who worked without having to be told to do so) was 'let go' because he 'missed too many days' yet I had missed 6 days more then him. Management sucks, at least it does at the Gananoque facility. I would not recommend Covidien jobs to anyone unless it was an in between job until they can find something else.. Absolutely horrible place to work! – less

Business Analyst (Current Employee), Mansfield, MASeptember 1, 2014
Pros: hard working employees that genuinly care
Cons: company no longer employee centric
Was once a great place to work, but things have changed over the years so that it is now just an ok place to work. Has good middle and upper management, but continued drive for cost savings has stretched many departments to a breaking point.

Pros: appreciation from supervisor
Cons: could only take summer holidays at shut down
The day started early at 7.30. If any of the other QC workers were absent my supervisor would tell you to fill in for them in there area checking the product. I did not mind that. I did quality control in extrusion, incoming, packing room, on the floor on different lines. Got on well with everyone. I learned alot from moving around to different areas – more... and getting to know the operators, supervisors and managers. – less
