Fiber optic module assembly worker (Former Employee), Central SaanichSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: definitely long hours
These were rotating 12 hour shifts.
We worked with Fibre Optics and made modules for tele-communication
Management was good
Co-workers were great, lots of us as the company ran 24 hours a day.
The hardest part of the job was when the company shut its Victoria office and plant.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when the quotas were met and everybody benefited.
