Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 March 2014
- With minimal supervision and direction, my day would start off with instructions on what tasks need to be completed by the end of the day. - I learned that, in this particular work environment, working with important and confidential data, it is okay to find shortcuts to get the job done, however, not all shortcuts are reliable. Sometimes taking the long route is the only way to get the job done perfectly. - With very little change of plans and/or distractions, I was able to create an efficient system that worked for me and helped with the productivity for the day. - My co-workers were very helpful with guiding me through the process. They gave me tips on the systems that they used to get the job done to ensure efficiency and accuracy. - The hardest part of the job was only the physical aspect or it. Although being seated all day, the posture of the body (back, neck, shoulders, etc.) would cause straining in some areas along with minor headaches here and there. - The most enjoyable part of the job was that I don't mind all the paperwork. While working at my own pace (which is quite fast), I had the chance to mingle with my co-workers to help pass the time.

In the beginning it was a good place to work, there was employee programs, incentives, bonuses for years worked there, employee functions, then management changed and so did the work ethic. Happy I left.

Admin (Former Employee) – Mississauga – 20 March 2016
I worked there for 3 years before being let go as a result of restructuring. Senior Management care very little about the people who actually do the work - they are more concerned for their own jobs and in particular - their status. I had to do a lot of personal errands for my bosses - getting meals, coffee etc. They had no idea of the work I was doing nor did they care as long as they were fed and watered - they should have hired a waitress. The company is going through MAJOR change and it seems a lot of jobs that are here today could very well be gone tomorrow. If you're not concerned about job security then go ahead and work here but if you are looking to build a career this definitely not the place to be. While the world is moving to a paperless environment Symcor would not exist without paper - that's their business and its dwindling quickly.
Long hours, unreasonable demands, do not tap into the real skills of people.
