Constant turnover of forklift operators
forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ONNovember 19, 2015
Difficult manager and some staff. Learned about how the product was made and enjoyed increasing my abilities on forklifts. Time went by quickly due to busy environment. Being a factory the noise level was high and a dirty plant. Most staff were very nice and pleasant to be around. Wages are very good but lots of mandatory overtime for a majority of the year.I learned how to run the production lines as staff took their breaks. Found ways to improvise when necessary.
Pros
Very good wages
Cons
Long hours, mandatory overtime on Sat. for 9mos, family time suffers, If you call in sick, want time off you loose your job.

Equal Opportunistic and Friendly Environment for those who really want to progress
Materials Planner (Current Employee) –  347 Silvercreek Pkwy N, Guelph, ONJune 3, 2015
Management is friendly to all employees and your positive and useful views and ideas are valued. One who wants to learn and utilize his knowledge are encouraged and also get chance. Learnt all aspects of Materials Management - Inventory Management, Capacity/ Production Planning, Shipping and Receiving, Physical Inventory. Learnt interaction with Customers for demand / Suppliers for material. Learnt the process of new product launch. Management is very cooperative and encouraging for new ideas and views for lean suggestions. Co-workers are friendly and cooperative. For me the hardest parts of the job is how much you complete you feel still we have more to do to improve and bring better for the company and yourself. The employees have freedom to express their views, Management is ready to respond your even most silly concern and satisfy. As a Planner, I have been trying all possible methods / ways to minimize inventory level with optimizing flawless production to meet customers' demand.

Linamar May Be the Largest Employer In Guelph BUT At What Cost...
Administrative Department - Receptionist/Secretary (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ONJuly 24, 2015
Linergy Mfg should be ashamed of themselves...Management is poor and grossly unfair in the handling of employee grievances.

Extremely high turn over...this speaks volumes.

A great learning ground in quality assurance of high precision automotive components
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ONApril 11, 2012
A dynamic place with focus on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement, driven by top management involvement. A place where people are motivated, hard working and positive contributors who work together as one team that embodies a typical harmony of multiculturalism.
The most enjoyable part is the addiction of work that almost every one suffers from. A healthy competition is prevalent, where every one wants to be a winner in his / her role thereby making Linamar a global leader / winner.
Keeping up to the daily challenges at work is probably the hardest part, though very inspiring for any person like me who is involved and passionate about his work.
