Good pay, but unorganized management and very repetitive work
Standard Fabrication - Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 October 2017
My supervisors and QC department had no experience in machining, thus many of the times communication gets confusing. The work environment was terrible, on hot days my station would get extremely hot with only a small desk fan to help, and on cold days I cant wear long sleeves as it is a danger when working on machines with fast rotating parts. The work itself is very repetitive but is simple, but with 44 hrs a week the repetitiveness out ways the simple.

Data Entry Clerk (Summer Student) (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 23 February 2016
A typical day at worked involved hundreds of spreadsheets to be input into Microsoft Excel. I learned that I do have a thing for working with numbers, felt like a human calculator. Management was amazing and never had any issues whatsoever, Co workers were great and made sure i knew exactly what the numbers ment that i was inputting, and were also open to let me learn more. The hardest part of the job was just how long the days were and how after you left work, numbers still ran through your mind, but the most enjoyable part of the day was seeing the large pile of finished spreadsheets.
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) – London, ON – 6 November 2015
- More than minimum wage pay rate - Steady hours (12 hour continental shift work)
- Little to no advancement (unless you've been there 10+ years, or you're extremely high on the seniority list) - Management does not care about employee well-being. - Work load is extreme with very little time to rest. - Other seasoned employees take advantage of new people, supervisors do not care. - Little to zero chance of switching from night shift to day shift (unless you're high on the seniority list) - Complete mental and physical exhaustion causes days off to seem not worth it.
A typical day at work is hard with a lot of concentration and responsibility. I learned how to find a short cuts to do things more faster and more simpler. Management overall was pretty good. My co-workers were really nice persons, we had lot of fun together. The hardest part of the job is to work with a line speed, because smaller diameter pipes comes much faster than bigger size of pipe. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see our shift workers and work together with them.
