Electrician (Former Employee) – Weyburn, SK – 11 December 2014
I BELIEVE MY TIME AT NEXANS WAS, FOR THE MOST PART, ENJOYABLE. THE INTERACTION WITH THE MACHINE OPERATORS WAS THE MOST ENJOYABLE, SOME OF WHOM WERE VERY EXPERIENCED AND OF COURSE SOME OF WHOM WERE BRAND NEW.. I HAD TO TEACH SOME OF THEM BUT MOSTLY THEY TAUGHT ME! MANAGEMENT JUST SEEMED, TO US, TO BE TOTALLY OUT OF TOUCH AND NOT VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, HOWEVER THE PLANT MADE MONEY FROM WHAT WE COULD TELL! I ADMIRED THESE GUYS AS SOME OF THEM HAD BEEN THERE FOREVER AND ENDURED ANYWAY.. THE HARDEST THING I FOUND WAS HAVING ALMOST NO SUPPORT FROM OUR ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT AND LITTLE LEADERSHIP AS WE WERE LEFT TO SOLVE MOST PROBLEMS ON OUR OWN, HAVING ALMOST NO DIRECTION FROM THE POWERS THAT BE....
Enjoyed working with coworkers and enjoyed solving complex problems with both new and old equipment

Working at Nexans tested every aspect of my education and trade skills. Really enjoyed the freedom to design, build and install creative process improvements. The company benefited tremendously by allowing the maintenance staff to self regulate maintenance planning and scheduling. By far the most creative approach to maintenance.

It is good to work at Nexans and it brings best out of you as it is a fast pace environment and you learn new things at extrusion lines everyday. Management is helpful most of the time and most of co workers are good to work with.
Productive but lots of pressure to get all machine running

Monitor and reccommend improvement initiatives on machine, co ordinate machine operators and manage them for effectiveness and increased productivity. The hardest part of my job is troubleshooting and maintenance of the lines. the most enjoyable part is seeing the lines running without any issue.
