Specialist (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 5 September 2017
I worked there during the previous management for 4 years. It was a tough job but i really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I went to places and met people all over the world. Some previous co-workers are still my friends. Work can be stressful sometimes with long hours. Other than that, it was great. I left because pay was not enough.
Interaction with coworkers was and meeting new people was interesting

Field Service Technologist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 October 2015
Since the 2nd generation took over family owned Optech, Decline in R&D, decline in sales and the market share pushed the owners to sell the company to Teledyne. Since then the technology drain and the work place squeeze to save a dime spending the a dollar is continuing.
Amazing co-workers trying to do the best they can but brutally managed.
Image Sensor Testing (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 24 October 2015
Teledyne Dalsa is a welcoming place with interesting projects to get involved with. It was liberating to be given the freedom to incorporate your own ideas and contributions to a project. The device testing positions have a good mix of hands-on work as well as computer programming and coding.

Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2015
it has a fast paced and physically demanding shipping-receiving and inventory area. Co-workers are all friendly, and mostly well mannered. overtime was usually always available. Management was very lackluster, more worried about the front lawn and board room couch then equipment and tools, the others did not understand the areas they controlled or were unbelievably lazy or uncommitted. that said though they were willing to work with you when it came down to personal life and needs, usually willing to negotiate hours and wage. The floor supervisors were mostly good, the one I worked under was well respected, often advising in other areas. It was an enjoyable place to work.
overtime was very available, and co-workers were fun to work with
