Information Specialist (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 25 January 2017
Depending on the department you work in will decide how you are treated by the company.
Unionized employees are treated far better than the non-union staff, and even then it isn't always that good. Like anyplace else some managers and supervisors respect and care for the staff under them, while others are great at yelling and throwing blame around.
The pay for non-union staff, in most departments, is well below industry standards in the city. They expect you to put in long hours of overtime and then fight you on paying the overtime. Your manager insists you work while HR insists you don't. Add to the fun is when your manager is in the US and expects you to follow Kentucky labour laws and tries to ignore Canadian and Manitoban laws for hours and work environment.
Assembly line welder (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 25 November 2016
Good place to work good benefits. Get free lunches when there is no missing parts or welds. Good atmosphere with coworkers. Good hours. Over time is considered as over time if you don't hit your 80 hours every 2 weeks
This company will chew you up and spit you out. You will be thrown under the bus at any time without remorse. Management is very unprofessional and distant from the actual production process. Supervisors like to yell and scream at the workers and have almost no knowledge on how to build a bus. Every problem is your problem and its your fault. Production staff are good to work with. There is absolutely no quality products leaving this plant. Quality really means quantity. Avoid this place if at all possible.
Wage is above average
Clueless management and supervisors, poor quality, hostile evironment
Its a very good and everyone is fun to workwith enjoing mourning coffe before we start the day to work

Very stressful work environment, co-workers are awesome. Poor management and air quality is very poor, a lot of exposure to highly toxic chemicals and fumes. Management shows a lot of favoritism. Provide training where needed.
Commodity Manager (Current Employee) – Various – 18 August 2014
An established company with a big-company attitude, but mid-to-lower company sales & practices. They pay well, but it is fast-paced, cut-throat, and stressful. Frequent ownership changes in the past twenty years have led to poor fiscal management, departmental animosity, infighting, and a general lack of strategic direction. Like GM, it has rested on its successes of 25+ years ago, only to watch the competition catch up and overtake it. There are applaudable changes underway, but until the staff has confidence that the leaders are interested in the company's long-term outlook, the culture will continue to resist.
Higher than market salary
Rapid ownership changes, lack of strategic direction
I enjoyed working in the Assembly Department assembling many different kinds of Baggage Doors which each one had it's own specifications and materials. The job atmosphere/environment, people, fellow workers, work place safety standards and their Health Care Benefits etc was number one. Had great lunch room(s), washrooms and lockers. I also liked their hours of operation too. Unfortunately contracts only last a few months at a time. You may not be called back for weeks/months later.
I enjoyed the three weeks that I worked there but the sudden termination took me by surprise. When I asked for a reason I was told the company was cutting back . This was two weeks after they hired 600 people.

Company is still struggling financially, and so treats its employees with little to no respect for their efforts. Most employees are afraid to complain because they need their jobs. Management is definitely "top-down", with no interest in any ideas their staff may have.
