Car Seat Assembler (Former Employee), Ajax – November 12, 2013
A typical day is standing in front of an assembly line and make sure that you are not holding the line. I learned how to work fast with accuracy, without this skill working in an assembly line will be impossible. This was only a summer job.
Materials/Production Supervisor - St. Thomas (Former Employee), St. Thomas, ON – September 6, 2012
For the better part of eighteen years I managed and directed 16 to 32 people within a JIT environment, in both production and material handling. I learned the values of respect, both giving and receiving, and the importance of keeping and maintaining a clean, safe work environment. Managers did not micro manage, but allowed you to make decisions regarding – more... your job. It is important to establish a working relationship with co-workers and to give assistance if needed. Like most jobs, motivating workers requires constant need, and the most enjoyable part was to have workers dedicated to their job and duties. – less

A lot of long hours but the pay is really good. The length of the work shift is determined by the needs of trhe customer. Some days could be 8hours while others could be more and there are opportunities to work on the weekends.
Quality Control Inspector/Assembler (Former Employee), Bridgeton, MO – February 5, 2014
Pros: good conditions, benefits and wages
Cons: subject to plant closures
Assembly can be quite boring this job allowed the flexibility to learn across the board. Opportunities came up with some regularity. Going to different departments always made for cross training knowledge and the ability to gain the most information to aquire those positions on a full time basis! Quality Control put me in with teams to help design better – more... working systems, ergonomics and safety programs. – less
