Machinist, Collingwood - 16 February 2018
Company has many many problems, Management very incompetent. The amount of unqualified people in Management positions is high. Making their Bonus is #1 priority everything else comes second. Little communication between Management and Employees. Employees are living just above the poverty line, Lots of people standing around waiting for parts not much work getting done due to lack of planning. If you are a Machinist and set up a machine for 1/2 hour you only machine 1 part instead of 20 etc.... They don't stock enough common parts. The programmers have no clue what they are doing. The z value is set off some vise they used 15 years ago not programmed off the top or bottom of the part. They don't even use the tapping cycle in a CNC lathe, that is done on a manual Machine after it has been "prepped" The Company buys old used equipment 10+ years old that is obsolete. The Roof is leaking badly Rain pours in in some areas. They won't fix it. It is a very loud environment. The people that are good are fed up and Retiring early because of the BS. If you suggest a better way of doing things you get " Thats the way we always have done it"
