Production Manager (Current Employee), Tillsonburg, ON – September 8, 2014
Review KIP's first thing in the morning. I follow-up on any start-up issues first thing in the morning. Verify my manning to ensure we have the right team members in the right places to cover customer demand.
Assist my team in the proper manor, to conduct scrap reduction meetings, and how to engage their support groups.
Encourage my team to continuously – more... look for improvement opportunities.
Daily production meetings, where I would update the management team on issue around production. I would sit with the appropriate manager to talk about production improvements whenever needed.
Excellent team to work with, we have fun doing what we all love doing.
When you feel that you did all of the right things to reduce scrap or increase OEE and the results are not what you had expected. So you take a moment regroup and put together another plan to achieve the goals. – less

Ottawa Operations needs to be reorganized @ the management level
Building Systems Technician (Former Employee), Ottawa, ON – May 15, 2014
Pros: overall a good company
Cons: no further comment. thank you this oppurtunity
I think Johnson Controls overall is a good organization overall. Ottawa is a very small part of the company as a whole. I for one could fix the issues @ the management level, but the company would have to discharge some people.
A typical day at work would start at 6am, or 3pm. There would be a pre shift meeting where the supervisor would communicate to the team what was on the daily build schedule for the day and how the performance of the team has been for the past days. I learned how to adapt to different peoples personalities, how to increase the morale of a team when things – more... looked grim, and how to become a part of a family away from home. My co-workers were great and our job seemed to be something we all enjoyed. My upper management were nothing else but helping, understanding, patient, and last but not least a part of our family. The hardest part of my job was knowing that our customer was giving our contracts to another supplier in the states, and knowing we were losing our jobs. The most enjoyable part of my job, was my job. – less

Pros: awesome paycheck and benefits
Cons: heavy conseguences on body, muscle injurees, all over the body.
I was working at this place for 3 years and i made a lot of friends, still keep in touch with them, i just hope the management was more serious and professional.
