In a call centre environment I evaluate and respond to authorized security technician queries and provide technical solutions in a timely, friendly and professional manner. Management is always available willing to respond to any questions or concerns. The workplace is face paced and sometimes stressful as we are supporting life saving products and services. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to provide quality support and helping other technicians out in the field.
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.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 22 January 2015
Most workers were usually in a good mood and easy to work with. The entire factory was laid off 3 separate times in one summer which lead to some uneasiness about job security. The job was very hard on the body, but after creating a high quality seat you were often given compliments.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Vancouver BC – 5 January 2015
Although the company is very large and offers a lot of great opportunities, there is not much in the way of personal training and you are left to figure things out on your own. not really at all what I was expecting, as well they sell to contractors as well as bid against them and I don't feel that is what I truly want to be part of

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 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.
Provided many challeging opportunities for all employees

Forklift operator (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 23 July 2014
The environment is your typical factory work job. If you do the job you'll go relatively unnoticed. Go above and beyond and you'll be expected to go above and beyond all the time. Under preform and you'll have to answer to uper management.
Free Breakfast once per year, free christmas dinner, free company trips (ex. Wonderland)
Long Hours, Stressful conditions if not used to them
Ottawa Operations needs to be reorganized @ the management level
Building Systems Technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 May 2014
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.
