Deficiency Sales (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 12 September 2017
A typical day includes quoting each deficiency that the fire alarm and sprinkler inspectors note. I have learned from this role that follow-up is important to have success with sales. Management is at different levels within the company. The workplace culture is very easygoing with many different generations. The hardest part of the job is repetitiveness. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you have helped people to stay safe.
Ok place to work, but if you get hurt following Johnson Controls Safety policies you'll get terminated
HVAC Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 December 2015
It's an ok place to work, incredibly strict on safety. They provide you with anything you could ever need, but don't get hurt, they'll let you go immediately even if you follow the policies and steps to properly report an injury.
Nice company until corporate decided to joint venture in order to exit the automotive business.
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 16 October 2015
After many years in the auto industry the corporate decided to initially joint venture with a chinese company in order to eventually get rid of their interiors automotive division. It used to be a great place to work,for the last 5 years the Whitby business unit management become a close club of people holding the key positions and deciding the fate and career advance of their subordinates. eventually the work culture turned in a toxic environment place where salary staff lost all the motivation. HR management the worst ever seen in all my career.
Great place to gain experience, Confidence to deal with stress and meet tight deadlines, After work in the automotive industry, The work pace in any other manufacturing industries is a breeze
Little training or mentorship, Inept middle management, Little opportunity for advancement, Rife with nepotism and favouritism
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 5 September 2015
visit each of my stores on a monthly schedule, inventory management, warranty returns and troubleshooting with associates for customer service issues.
Great rep team across Canada, in constant contact to allow us to do a better job for our client across the country.
There really was no hard part of this job, as we could set our own hours as long as we visited each store monthly or as per our contract. the most enjoyable part was meeting with our contacts at the stores each month.
Fun people to work with and most days were great and without any problems.
Assembly Line Associate (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 9 July 2015
A typical day was coming in at 10:45pm. Work the assembly line, we had 3 breaks throughout the 7 hour shift and the day ends at 6:05 am. Management for the most part were fair honest people. My co-workers were great and hardworking people and I very rarely every had a falling out with any of them. The hardest part of the job was staying awake throughout the night and the most enjoyable was coming in to see everyone everyday.
Senior Business Development Executive (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 May 2015
During the four years I worked at Johnson Controls, the Canadian senior management and division leaders were in a state of constant change. I reported to five different sales managers over 46 months. In addition, the division I worked in re-organized by the US corporate office twice.
my time at johnson controls was something new to me at the time and I really enjoyed the environment
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 17 April 2015
Johnson Controls was company that built parts for General Motors, we would come to work and have a group meeting to listen to any news about Company and to hear of how previous shift was doing,then off to our work stations. the thing I liked about working there was we did 8 1hr jobs so each hour we would change to different areas of our cell area. Management was very easy for.Considering the nature of the job there werent too many challenging jobs if any, very ergonomically correct, and considering how many employees there was I didn't find a problem with anyone(but I wasn't looking for one either)

Production Associate (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 11 February 2015
Formed friendships that are more like family, still in touch with them even though I left. Chance to do multiple jobs including team leader, quality control. The jobs are not physically demanding, or hard to learn, problem is swing shift (2 weeks days, 2 weeks afternoons) is hard on the body and can lead to burnout. Being a union environment advancement is all seniority based, not skill based. Rumours in the auto industry about future is also the worst I have ever faced, constant rumours of job being over, not helped when contract time comes around and management does nothing to dispel them.
