Great place to learn
Design Engineer-Current Product (Current Employee), PlantJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: its a great place to start and learn at.
Cons: no benfits/advancements
Its a great place to start and learn at. I have learnt a lot about people management, various aspects of the business and more importantly how to be a practical engineer.

The job is never boring or dull as there was challenges to overcome.

Terrible Place To Work
Senior Buyer (Former Employee), Guelph, ONSeptember 29, 2013
Pros: nothing
Cons: unethical, poor management
This company treats employees and suppliers as disposable entities. They asked me many times to compromise my moral and ethical values as a Buyer. I was forced to lie to suppliers on a daily basis.
I would not recommend Linamar to my worst enemy.
Be very cautious and go into any negotiations between them and yourself with your eyes wide open.

General Labour (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJuly 22, 2013
Got stuck working night shift and it was ok, hard getting used to the change in sleep pattern. I would build platforms for skyjacks, I learned basic electrical, and wiring, Management was ok, too much favoritism, C-workers were generally good people,

Pay is good but layoffs every year
Employee (Current Employee), Guelph, ONJune 24, 2013
Cons: work environment quite hot in summer, cold in winter
Pay is good but layoffs every year, first time I was off for almost 5 months, ... So really pay may be good while working but in end not so good.

Benefits not good ... start at 50%, then 10% added on for each year service up to 80%

You have to pay your own LTD which comes right off your pay, works out to over $1000 a year

A good place to learn
Buyer (Current Employee), Guelph, ONApril 28, 2013
Pros: tuition reimbursement
A good place to gain experience when first starting off in your career; the company offers broad learning opportunities in an automotive setting as it falls under the Linamar umbrella. You can expect a fast paced environment with often changing priorities. Management calibre varies as employee mentorship is lacking though you are encouraged to voice – more... your concerns. Those who work hard are recognized and have the potential of progressing. – less

Production is key
Welder (Current Employee), Guelph, ONJuly 17, 2012
Pros: paid breaks, free water/ freezies when hot
Cons: sometimes were pushed and rushed for numbers (impacts quality)
A typical day at work is showing up early. Going to my work area and seeing what Ill need to get going. Then heading to a kick off meeting where we discuss safety and quality issues that need addressing to better our product. Ive learned alot about GMAW welding there. I am very keen on quality as I construct the rear axle of the machine. It is an extremely – more... important piece as is the rest of the machine we produce. My co workers are amazing people. we all get along and help eachother if need be. the most enjoyable part of my job is having the sense of accomplishment at the end of my day after hitting my quota and helping my team members also do so. – less

Fun and productive team environment.
General Laborer (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJuly 3, 2012
I was able to learn a lot of different jobs from: Sub assembly of manifolds and outrigger installation, installation of tires, hydraulic cabinets, installation of main drive engine and hydraulic plumbing. It was a great team environment and I was able to build better skills with a variety of hand and power tools.
