Repetive, dealing with agency sucks

Managers were understanding and accomodating
Labour/ Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 May 2017
small repetitive soul crushing tasks would lead me to learn that being temp agency worker however accommodating the management is just a temporary position, the full timers never gave us any problems, the hardest part was the labour and the most enjoyable was the fact it kept you fit.

Very cheap and maltreated company.
CNC Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 August 2016
This agency is the Magna International Company's arm.

I was a temporary skilled worker and worked as twice as harder than the full time ones, and got $12/hr without benefit of course. The full time workers were paid more than $20/hr.

The management gesture showed falsely that the temporary workers would be hired when working hard. But I found out that someone worked quite hard for more than 2 years but their hope was nowhere.

After 3-night shift hard working months, I left the company to pursue the other career.

Horrible. Do not work for this company
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  St. Thomas, ON21 March 2016
HCR does not offer anything but getting you to some sort of a work that you are probably over qualified for or even under qualified. They don't care as long as you show up to make them money.
Any "excused absence" is and always will be counted against you even if it is a medical excuse.
People in the office are trained on what to tell you so that they have the upper hand over you.
Office women are rude, ignorant and love to gossip about the hard working people that make them richer.
DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY
Pros
None.
Cons
Too many to list. Read review

Great place to work for, Great people
Machine Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON16 September 2015
HCR,
a typical day at work would begin at the assignment that you were assigned, HCR really prepares you for anything an employer can throw at you really. They make sure you are ready from day one. I have learned a tonne working with HCR, about workers rights, proper safety procedures, its really empowering. There are a lot of employment agencies out there that probably will not care for you, HCR is not one of them.

Other agencies may pimp you, these guys actually listen, you just gotta make sure to work with them and not put too much strain on what they can and cannot do for you. My co workers have been great since day one, some of the other unionised people may look down on you but that's rarely, if ever. I gotta say the most difficult part of working with them was that every time you switch assignments, you gotta contact your references again.. but aside from that usually the HCR rep at the assignment will make it completely hassle free, the greatest thing about HCR is that they will always have something lined up for you if you need it.
Pros
magna plants, stable money
Cons
overtime not distributed if you worked at more than one place, overtime is maximum hours at ONE assignment.

At this particular job placement a day would consist of loading work stations of truck frame parts that are to be welded on and inspected for quality. Skills involved are attention to detail for any defects. Weld training for work in the weld booth fixings defects. As well as troubleshooting problems when they occur.
Pros
