Fun and Productive work Environment
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON7 April 2014
- Day started with a morning meeting to assign tasks for the day
- I learned how to read blueprints, properly wire and build control panels, operate a crane and attach parts of the Wind Hubs
- Management was very helpful and friendly, they made daily rounds so if you ever had any questions they were available
- Most Co-workers were friendly and helpful, experienced workers were there to give advice or help if I was having trouble
- The hardest part of the job was training employees that had more experience then me (when lay offs were happening we had to train employees from different areas) when they didn't want to learn
- The most enjoyable part was challenging myself to see how many Wind Hubs I could finish in a day, also working with friendly, easy going people
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Commuting from Oshawa to Peterborough

Armature Coil Taper (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON22 January 2014
Great place to work.People are great. Learned most importantly about safety both at work at out of work. Applying similar to daily routines wherever. Hardest part was waiting for go ahead and approval for clearance for a specific job.Set up process pretty long and very detail specific so approval delayed production. Enjoyable part when jobs completed in great time for next process.
Pros
Health Awareness Programs.
Cons
Waiting for Approval of set up

Site Leader - Portofolio Manager, GE (Former Employee) –  Montreal, Quebec4 June 2013
Very motivating environment with a great team.

A typical day would include a customer interview over a credit review or address of concern; training of staff on some new procedure; strategic operations meeting with colleagues and VP.

The most rewarding thing about being a manager is seeing the progress of an employee thanks to my coaching and perseverance, and seeing the team achieve the quarterly sales objective.
Receiving a customer compliment and thank you letter is always appreciated.

Having colleagues to convene with is a great support thing, especially in times of short staff or technical difficulties of system.
The most enjoyable part of this job was being multitasked: managing, servicing and training.

The hardest part of the job was the fact that it was abolished.
Pros
Great benefits and self realization
Cons
Some travelling for training

Accounts Receivable (A/R) Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 May 2013
It was a very fun place to work at. It does have a lot of work during the month and quarter ends but it helps your day go by fast and do not realize when its home time already. People working there are really friendly and helpful. It gave me a good opportunity to learn in my related field.
Pros
Free lunches during quarter ends and month ends
Cons
Long hours due to the month and quarter ends
