Linamar at Linex
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ONJune 29, 2016
Linamar is a good overall company.

Good jobs if you like labour. Lots of good hands on training and knowledge. However it seems that they don't really keep folks past 6 months, and only offer contracts. Kinda frustrating when your looking for long term employment. They miss out on hiring some really great talent.

A good source of mine said that this is the nature of Linamar, and they really only hire on after two or three attempts. So in short, if your looking to get on with them, expect to only have a six month contract. Cheers!
Pros
Good solid labor job, Lots of training, Lots of knowledge, and not bad wages.
Cons
Short term contracts, rotating shifts, and not hiring for long term.

Bahahaha Linamar Corp.
Electrician (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ONMay 29, 2016
The absolute worst place a tradesman can "work". If you're an Electrician, avoid this corporation like the plague!... Unless you're looking for a free ticket to the circus, you will be thoroughly disappointed in absolutely every possible way.

Pay: $30/hr

Benefits: the only benefits I've ever had that don't cover anything (all coverage's have exclusions of some kind)... And I've had excellent and mediocre benefits in the past.
Pros
There are great people hidden in the nooks and crannies
Cons
Almost anything you can think of relating to work

No Job Security, plenty of layoffs
Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) –  materialsJanuary 26, 2016
A good place to work if you like getting laid off for no reason and then they post , hiring all positions the next day, The management only protects your job if you are in with the crowd and is willing to keep your mouth shut and do as they say, wrong or right.
Pros
good work hours
Cons
they lay you off before you are able to get benefits.

Packer (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ONNovember 16, 2015
I'm not happy with the hours. I would just like to find a job where i can have a set schedule. I don't like shift work.I would be more comfortable with a job that only takes up my day i like to have my dinner at home and sleep at night.

Line Setup (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ONJune 3, 2016
This place is so bad I don't have enough space to explain, it ranges from being watched like a hawk when work is slow, to being ignored when your swamped with work and are asking for help. They take advantage of non English speaking people by telling them; they "must" come in on holidays, punching in 2 minutes before your shift is considered late and you must be docked half an hour, and having foreigners work 12 hour shifts 7 days a week on a "Work Vacation".
When calling in sick you get punished by having to sign a "pink" sheet, then your monthly bonus gets docked, but not just your monthly bonus but your entire departments monthly bonus. These actions are illegal as Canadian law states that a employee receives 10 sick days each year that they cannot be punished for either monetarily or socially in any way.
Then come the absurd lies, stating that we are not making any money so the yearly raises are kept to a minimum, but don't worry your promotion is just around the corner. Half the company consists of machine set ups being payed machine operator wages in order to keep costs down, and once again this largely takes advantage of foreigners as they either don't know they should be getting payed more ore are too desperate for a promotion to simply refuse. Do not be fooled by these illusions of grandeur, your skill and work ethic does not guarantee your promotion.
Pros
most of the people
Cons
everything

Dickensian Workhouse
Not Management (Current Employee) –  GuelphDecember 5, 2014
Work 3 months at a hair above mail minimum wage doing hard physical labor. Then another three months with a slight pay raise.
No warm water in the bathroom, wear your hearing protection at lunch as the area is on the shop floor.
As a temp to perm hire you are treated like garbage. Once hired there are some nice people and your wage and incentive package isn't bad.
All the charm of a soviet gulag unless you're in the in crowd.
