Senior Control Systems Engineer (Current Employee), Perth, Western Austalia – March 21, 2014
Hours are flexible. Self managed project. Management is not visible, hence less communication with higher management. Co-workers are very subjective to individual where some are very team oriented and some aren't. Enjoyed playing table tennis with co-workers.
This company has a very good name but only mismanaged by
Cnc Machine Operator/Programmer (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – March 1, 2014
Pros: long vacations not allowed only two weeks or be fired on the spot
Cons: shortened hour of operation and reduced ot. very poor safety record
I could have sensed long time ago that the company was gonna go bankrupt because of so much changing of policies and outsourcing to foreign countries with cheaper labor where product quality is compromised thereby contributing to the demise of its operations. Formerly the company was a global leader in distribution of valve automation products and a – more... major player in the Oil and Gas Industry. – less
Drafter 1 (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – September 17, 2012
Pros: free lunches at lunch n' learns, the get together's we used to have one day a month after work
Cons: the important deadlines that were hard to meet
Always came into work and had something to do. Looked forward to going to work everyday. Managers were great and always helpful. Co-workers were fun to work it and were also very helpful. Learned a lot through this company since it was my first Electrical Engineering company I drafted for. Learned more advanced skills in AutoCAD that I didn't learn – more... at SAIT. Experienced different projects and thier different standards and expectations. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with great and experienced people. Hardest part of the job was meeting crucial deadlines but was always able to meet them. – less
CNC MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee), 4112 91a street edmonton ab – September 8, 2012
Pros: free pizzas and ice cream during the summer months
Cons: long overtime hours and time sensitive customer orders
typical day of work is oftentime repetitive and routine every start of work have to wear PPE safety meeting and sign production list. I have learned a lot about working safe all the time always being aware of hazards surrounding the shop premises. I also learned about how to get along with co workers and work as a team to accomplish the jobs on hand – more... and how to courteous and respectful of each other. With regards to the management team they always ensure that everybody follows the safety rules and guidelines of the shop because every injury is treated as a major blow to the company operation. the hardest part of the job is a company shutdown and massive layoff of employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is accomplishing the whole year without any accident or injury recorded and each one gets a tap on the back and a bonus after each year the company makes a profit. – less
Sales Admin (Former Employee), Osborne Park, WA – November 25, 2014
This role was a Maternity Contract so a short term role. This role was originally a Sales Admin role that was located out with the Sales Reps. They decided to move me out the front. Unfortunately this then isolated me from the team not a very productive solution. So I was by myself a lot with no company.
