ECM Production Associate (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 28 September 2017
A typical work day is straight forward, you do a different station every 1 or 2 hours and then have a break. Each 2 hour chunk you will do a different station or type of work. The hardest part of the job at times can be hard on certain muscles; constant wearing down. But maintaining a healthy body with stretching and frequent working out at the gym will promote endurance to get you through your day. Once a full-time associate, you have benefits and it is most important to use the massages and other benefits to maintain your body's health and for best work performance. Workplace culture can be emotionally trying depending on circumstances, but generally each person is friendly. Management shows their concern for the company and associates by providing free lunches and other gifts/bonuses.
Workplace is close to various fast food restaurants. Cafeteria with a reasonably priced hot meal.

This place is terrible. They move only friends into high position. I've seen good workers treated like garbage . I start off in good spirits. By the time I left the company I was miserable. But if you like drama and a back stabbing people this is your place. By the way there president is nothing but a cheating lying piece of garbage No one in this company can't take responsibility. If could give negative I would. Most importantly ask yourself why are they always hiring. Cause no one wants to work there
Long hours terrible team leaders people stabbing you on tje back

This place is a decent place to work good pay and good friendly employees. The HR and their polices and horrible and they always take a chance to take a strike at you also their attendance/call in policy is another system just for HR to go against you even if you have a reason, HR has no sympathy they are only nice if you work for HR

Denso was a great environment to work in with friendly and helpful co-workers and management. It was a clean work space and the staff definitely took pride in keeping it that way. Quality is considered of utmost importance and rewarded both verbally and physically with incentives.
Great place to work, plenty of hours, respectful management.

DENSO gave me a solid job while I try to gain entry into my field of study. This job offers competitive wage, steady simple work, and opportunity for lots of overtime. Management considers the needs of the workers offering incentives, cost-of-living raises, and yearly/holiday bonuses. All-in-all a great place to work that only requires you to show up and work hard.
Free food/gear/bonuses etc.
Some departments work long (10 h) shifts (could be a pro)

it was really hard for me to leave it was a great job that I truly enjoyed. management was great my co workers were the best easy to get a long with and tons of fun. The hardest part of the job for me was working afternoons I am a family man and it was hard to be away from them at night. The most enjoyable part of the job is that i was able to learn so many different jobs with denso i really enjoyed my 4 years with them
very productive, hard working, stride to make my numbers in this very fast pace working environment

Typical day at Denso, would go in half hour early and set up the machines, making sure that all is running well and are all programmed for the first part we will be running. Was in charge of doing a "first piece" run to ensure all measurements were all up to code before the associates were to start running the machine. We had four rotations throughout the day, where we were all trained to run all machines on the line. If all associates were present for the day, would be given the opportunity to work "off line", which was supplying the various associates with parts, handling the rejected parts and inspecting them and assisting the Team Leader with whatever he/she needed help with. At Denso we worked on a two week rotating shift basis, consisting of days and afternoons.
