Waiting for contract negotiations
Machine Tool Setter (Current Employee), St. Catharines, ONApril 14, 2016
Pros: flexible with time off in my department
Cons: supplemental work force employee = temp = second class citizen
Contract will be a pivotal time at this plant. the people are good to work with, direct supervisors are good to work with. machining lines, assembly lines, none of the jobs i've encountered are overly physical or laborious. too bad management is looking to reduce their costs by contracting out our jobs to the lowest bidder. Eventually they will pull of Canada all together....

Quick Service Attendant (Current Employee), Oshawa, ONJanuary 30, 2016
Pros: great work enviroment
Cons: part time/seasonal
It is a great place to work at. All of the staff is friendly and work together as a team. The management is very easy to talk to and very understanding of medical issues etc. I have never had an issue in 7 years of employment. It is never a dull moment as the venue holds various events such as hockey games, concerts etc. The only downside is the employment is not enough to live on, it is part time/seasonal.

A typical shift would consist of me cleaning, organizing and sanitizing condiment stands for the hockey arena
