Fast paced productive plant environment
Material Services Associate (Former Employee) – Elora, ON – 13 December 2016
A typical day at work is pretty fast paced as it is an automotive production facility, what you learn will vary depending on the position you are hired for as there are various different production and material handling positions available (stamping, welding, quality control, material handling, shipping etc.). Personally I worked in material handling and had great supervisors and co-workers, the supervisors there are not only genuinely nice people but also very hands on problem solvers who will get things done and assist you with whatever you need to keep you rolling. The hard part of the job (this is specific to material handling, I did not work in other departments) is making sure to balance your time well and plan ahead. You have to keep lines running so making sure that you are up on your counts and compensating by grabbing a few more than are missing on fast moving inventory to keep up with production is key as they are still moving and going through inventory while you are reloading. There are many enjoyable things about the job as well, generally good co-workers, steady pace helps the shift go by faster, good compensation and employee perks/benefits and if you're looking for a good workout you'll get one here.
