Product test technician (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 4 September 2013
my typical day was a kind of horrible, too much phones were coming to fix and the target was more i didn't take my one break of 15 mins, and there was too much pressure on my mind and there was a overtime of 4 hours. i was so tired that day. i learned how to work in an environment in which quality and quantity are the key factors of production. My co-workers were so helpful if they weren't busy they come to help me if i had loads of work. the hardest part of the job was nothing, it was all good if you are working at a constant speed. the most enjoyable part was the fun talking to people there, everyone explain things in a humorous way that you will learn everything and at the same time you are having fun.
PRODUCTION/OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 June 2013
Flextronics being market leader in Electronics Manufacturing had very good methods and plan when they took over Solectron Invortonics. Solectron was the name of the company where I work most of the time. this being Automotive Electro Mechanical Parts supplier to major 3 Auto Makers. Since there was big slow down in the Industry we decided to find other stable industry. It was very nice place to work. Had very good understanding co-operating Management. We Implemented many Lean Kaizan Initiatives in order to stay in the business but unfortunately the Auto industry had faster rate of slow down...we could not keep the business within our tertiary. Had good co-workers. 30 % of the workers were from Agency to keep up the fluctuating demand in business. I have learn different personal Management skills. Planning methods. Lean Initiatives for fast phase environment. Automotive QA standards.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 8 March 2013
Busy day, good comunications with the co-workers, good team. I learned that people are different and when you respect that you get the same response from them. Good management, nice co-workers. The hardest part of the job, when you can't control some malfunction of the equipment. The most enjoyable part of the job was fixing the problem fast and getting the job done, helping with ideas to improve the process and make the line to run smoothly.
nice and clean place to work, not heavy job
everybody appreciated my hard work, but no bonus, not salary increase for all this years
Bench Laptop Technician (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 28 September 2012
The company provides fair opportunities for everyone. The career grows is possible within the company. Management is generally nice, understanding. The work place is clean and secure. Most of the tools needed are given at the start of work. The biggest con is that spare parts system is poorly managed at the facility. Some of the crucial tools and materials are not always available for work. Spare part from third party vendors often arrive with built in defect.
tools and materials not up to par with job requirements
Productive work place and fun place to work, Fitness centre on site.

Assistant Process Engineer (Current Employee) – M07 – 31 July 2012
Day in and day out I am In-charged of taking care of the rework process. I see to it that the process is being followed by the operators. there were a lot of things learned such as doing profile for a certain Printed circuit boards PCB and its component, doing programs on the machine in order to operate, and learned to troubleshoot. The management were nice they provide us good trainings in order to apply from day to day work. All my co workers were very supportive and follow instruction as given to them. Sometimes when issues arises tough decision making and analysis must be done and i consider it as the hardest part of the job but it is a challenging task to do and contribute things for the better of the company. I am enjoying the companionship of my co-workers around me.
quarterly bonus, ot, meal, night differential allowance
LOGISTICS ASSOCIATE I (Former Employee) – Newmarket, Ontario – 12 July 2012
Want to experience work the "old fashioned" way? Join the indentured service of Flextronics. This company will give you that institutionalized feeling you've always longed for. Bells and buzzers to tell you when to herd into the plant, to the bathroom, out for breaks. Security guards non-discretely pat you down as you leave. A small over-crowded cafeteria will serve the latest in outdated MRE's, stale bread and warm water.
Scratch your head as you wonder what your non-English speaking supervisor/manager/Tribune/Overseer just said to you. Who knows, you may have been insulted in a new, exciting language. No heat in the winter, no air conditioning in the summer...just the way it was in Georgia 150 years ago.
For your entertainment, a dimly lit theatre is provided for you to attend the latest in mind-alterating re-education in the spirit of Uncle Ho! Once a month there is a prize for the most dust balls collected at Tenko.
So if you're a WASP, middle-aged, desperate for work and willing to be abused, Flextronics is the place for you.
Do what they said thet would do, when they said they would do it.
Logistics Associate (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 30 April 2012
I learned that rules are there for office workers only. Listen to the boss even if he is wrong and you can prove him wrong. The head of HR says she is there to help, but only if a group gets together to complain. Most of the employees are friendly.
