Was promised that if I worked hard and stayed on I would have possibility of being hired full time permanent. This turned out to be incorrect as the company rarely if ever hires temps
Cons

Awful place to work
weld (Former Employee) –  Elora, ONDecember 24, 2015
Money isn't that great for what's expected. If you get hurt they don't care and often let people go because of it. Team leaders and coordinators are all friends and if you aren't part of the group they treat you poorly. They work you extremely hard and often you have to work 6 days a week. HR is a disgrace. They don't care about anything to do with the employees. They all hang out together and protect each other. All management has no clue what's going on. Things would be a lot more efficient if the management had proper training. This place isn't a good place to work at all.

Factory work, as expected
Basic robotic associate technician (Former Employee) –  elora, onSeptember 28, 2015
Employees are assigned to designated 'zones' with up to 12 employees in each.
Most lines are run with 1-2 people, meaning you work alone and are responsible for your own area.
It is a very hot work environment and important to stay hydrated! Little to no fans/ventilation.
Don't think that conflicts and or line issues are handled as well as they should be by management. They don't often come to employees, who know the line and best way to run it, for tips or info on how things are running/ how it could be improved.
HR is very small and avoids employees as much as possible. Everything is communicated electronically now, through tv's and email...if you get emails.
On the plus side, there are employee appreciation activities and meals periodically.
Temps are not treated great, and contracts are literally dangled on string for well over the time they should be before being hired on full time with benefits.
Health and safety co-ordinator is horrendous! Does not care about the people at all and is rarely available to find if you need to discuss or follow up on anything.

Pay is competitive and what keeps most of us there.
Pros
overtime when you want it
Cons
mandatory saturdays, no straight shifts

Good atmosphere
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Elora, ONJuly 23, 2015
Typical day included showing up a few minutes before shift in order to get changed and meet at your zone before the shift began. Then you work find out which station your were working at. After each break or lunch you would switch areas which was nice. My team leader was great and any interaction with shift supervisors or administration was great.
Pros
free BBQs
Cons
can be physically demanding at times

MS Associate (Former Employee) –  Elora, OntarioMay 22, 2015
Great place to work. They treat their employees well. Associate appreciation BBQ's/Meals where Managers will serve the meals to the associates. Company golf tournament, Christmas Parties at a very nice location yearly. Many opportunities for those who work hard and show initiative. HR department is friendly and approachable. Management is always visible and anyone can approach them with ideas for improvements. The safety aspect is excellent. Least enjoyable is the rotating shifts.
Pros
Good wage, Management involvement, Fun extra things
Cons
Production Saturdays

Fast paces work environment
Weld Associate (Current Employee) –  Elora, ONJanuary 15, 2014
A typical day at work, is swiping in on time. Going to your zone to see your team members and team leader to be told what is happening for the night. Your team leader will place your name on the dedicated line for the four quarters of the night, and you will go there with a team member, or by yourself (depending on the line). First quarter you do startups, making sure the line will shut down when needed, replacing robot tips, writing down weld numbers. Stock up your work line, and then make parts. The next three quarters consist of making parts, or supporting your work team with their lines.
If you need to talk to management, its easier when you are on day shift as compared to nights, or afternoons (but since you rotate between days and afternoons, you are able to see them every two weeks, regardless).
The hardest part of the job is when you are put on a line with someone that can not keep to the same pace as yourself, and you still have to try to hit rate.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to learn anything if you apply yourself.
Pros
30 min, lunch break.
Cons
repetitive motions

Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Elora, ONJune 27, 2013
I was able to hold a few position titles during my tenure at JEC. Able to work with many friendly people who helped train and develop the associates. It has been one of the best places I have worked and one of my few regrets was leaving to try and find different opportunities.
