Slave (Current Employee) –  Ancaster, ON18 August 2017
Place , Pay and work is the industry norm.. nothing great or bad about that ... But 1 Factory Focus Leader is completely in over his head.. has no clue how to do his job .. the shop floor suffers .. supervisors are power maniacs or yes men... no happy mediums... there were good leaders but they either quit or were fired.. steer clear of this place at all costs...
Pros
AC in the lunchroom
Cons
extremely bias and slightly stupid management

operater (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON11 August 2017
i meet very nice coworker, however the management still old school, doesn't allow anyone to express his opinion or to ask about your future.the management treat you like nothing, even after working for a longtime, there is no certainty for your future.

Good team of workers.
Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) –  Ancaster, ON6 May 2017
Good team to work with but no opportunity for advancement. Working 12 hr continental shift. Hard to maintain older machinery and training on new equipment is non existent. Most is self training through other Technicians and outside service people yet still expected to maintain all machines old and new.
Pros
Good people, good wages and benefits.
Cons
No room for advancement and very little training oppotunity

The HR lies
Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON4 April 2017
Told we would be making a certain amount after doing our temp position of 6 months then they changed their minds and dropped the wage $1.50 without telling anyone, got laid off after weeks of mandated overtime. If you're a woman you can't move up. My supervisor flat out told me that he didn't want woman doing other jobs because it was 'too heavy and too dirty' for woman. Takes too long to be hired on. 6 months as a temp, then up to 18 months as a contract, then 3 mor months before you get benefits and profit sharing. They say it's only 'up to' 18 months to get hired on but no one gets hired on early.
Pros
Easy job
Cons

CNC Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON21 January 2017
Management can be slightly hypocritical. They preach safety yet some lead hands break rules on a constant basis.

However, the people are good from production to the op techs and maintenance crew. If you can manage becoming a permanent employee and not a temp, the pay is good.
