Low paying and you have to 'encourage' (I call it babysitting) your co-workers!
Assembler (Former Employee) – Gananoque, ON – 24 June 2013
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 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!
Pretty much guaranteed to get a job because they cant keep people from quitting!
Minimum wage, mandatory overtime (50-60hr work weeks)

Production worker (Current Employee) – Gananoque, ON – 25 August 2013
Can have little fun while you work. One benefit in working there is you do get paid for the 8 hr shift, your break and lunch are paid. Rate of pay is not the greatest for what you do. You only get a certain percent of benefits paid. My co-workers are great to work with. There is a lack of communication between management and the production workers. The hardest part of the job for me is commuting from Smiths Falls to Gananoque.
