Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Newmarket, ON – November 25, 2013
Pros: overtime, fastpaced
Went in to work checked board to see which lines were running and where I would be that shift.Heavy Duty line was great,knowing how to do every job on the line meant being rotated every 2 hours.Therefore the night would go fast.We would meet with the shift supervisor and find out if there were any quality checks to watch closely for and they would tell – more... us our standards that would have to met for that shift.The safety data sheets would have to be signed before running any machines. Sometimes I would have to train a new operator on a machine or different operation. Co-workers were not always the same person.Worked as a team to train new people and make the production run smooth. It was difficult when there were new people came, alot of people were different nationalities there fore making it difficult to understand but it was a learning experience and very rewarding because alot of them were so greatful to be able to learn the proper way of doing things having the right teacher.Team leaders were happy with my way of training people the proper way. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people meeting the standards and quota for the day. Made it all worth while – less

i learned how to be really quick at putting things together.most of the bosses were nice.The other nice.The hardest part was being on a slow line after being on a fast one.The most enjoyable is trying to beat my record with no defects.

Pros: employees. clean and safe.
Cons: management. shift work
Pretty decent place to work. Employees are friendly and team oriented. Same as anywhere that is non union. Managements way is the only way! They get us to wear the golden handcuffs with their good pay. Hard to leave.
Machine operator (Former Employee), Newyago – September 12, 2014
I I was hired to work 7-7 sat sun. every day I was put on a new machine with no training. They want you to run at least 3 machines at a time. they are not all in a row or close. I worked a machine for 9 hours did not ask questions or talk to anyone. My machine went down and I asked what do I do, they said call ts. I asked where the phone was and how – more... and what to dial and they just looked at me like I was dumb. once I got a ts to the machine she got upset and said what. Like why are you bothering me. I was told on my second weekend they wanted me running 3 machines that I have never run before. 1 of my machine was putting out bad parts and it took forever to sand them. All my parts was good until 3 when 2nd shift management told me to quit sanding so much and pass the parts with in 2 hours my parts starting comming back. No one would fix the machine and they wanted me to keep putting my name on the parts and pass them. It was my job on the line not theres. No training second shift management is horrible and they run you worse than a dog for 8.75 and hour. – less
Assembler (Current Employee), Howell, MI – September 9, 2014
Too hot and treated their workers badly but it was okay. It was hot and didn't provide me with a fan like they should have. Management was rude to everyone and constantly was unhappy. They expected your life to revolve around them and you to drop everything to work there. They would give us 12 hour shifts 6 days a week and expect us to be okay with – more... it. – less
