Operated CNC machinery is a mass production environment
CNC Machine Operator (Former Employee), GuelphAugust 17, 2013
This job was where I gained the most experience in learning skills as a machine operator. During the majority of my employment we were all working 6 days a week while rotating nights, afternoons, and day shifts two weeks at a time. I left the company on good terms and took a much more challenging position at Meadowland Manufacturing.

Great Learning Opertunities
Industrial Electrical Apprentice (Current Employee), Guelph OnJune 10, 2013
Pros: learning opertunities
Cons: no regard for family or personal life
Linamar is very much about getting things done now, no matter what. It's a fantastic place for a smart person to learn a lot very quickly.

I love that I'm encountering challenges and am required to think on a daily basis. I work with Journeyman and help train new apprentices on a daily basis.

The pay and benefits aren't fantastic but it's well worth – more... it for the knowledge – less

Interesting fast passed environment
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Guelph, ONOctober 13, 2012
Pros: job security for a job well done and decent pay
Cons: rotating 12 hour shifts (days to nights) is the sun going up or down?
First thing machine set up- Check all tool holders and cutting edges
Next run test part- check for proper dimensions within tolerance
adjust depth of cut using numerical input
send part in for quality assurance
run machine with minimal down time to achieve max productivity

learned to under stand the operation of machines to attain minimal scrap and – more... high productivity

the hardest part of the job work the constantly rotating shifts which made in hard to adapt to a given sleep pattern

excellent team relationship between most co-workers but i found a certain amount of lack of care regarding important and sensitive measuring equipment by others

What i most enjoyed while working at Linamar was the excitement of always being able to improve, and solve problems. Wether it was a machine fault or a way to refine my own process it always gave me a sense of accomplishment. – less

Buen ambiente de Trabajo
Practicante de embarques (Former Employee), Gómez Palacio, DURApril 7, 2014
Buena empresa para adquirir experiencia.
Tienen mucha paciencia con los practicantes. Te enseñan el proceso completo de lo que tengas que hacer.
No me daban ninguna clase de apoyo es lo único malo, me refiero a alguna paga simbólica por las actividades realizadas o una ayuda con el combustible.
