DSP Operator (Current Employee) – Therapure – 14 August 2017
Great team, enjoyable to work with. Work always changes depending on process running, lots of new things and equipment to learn and gain experience with. Supervisors and management are understanding and can accommodate shifts so that you can go to appointments or get time off. Schedule rotates approx every 2 weeks, day, afternoon and night shift. also work on weekends and holidays. It's salary job but there are premiums when you work afternoon, night, weekend and holiday. There is also OT that you can get paid or bank time and half to take time off after (your choice just need to let supervisor know). Overall is a good place, really busy and needs full time attention so not an easy job but good team an opportunity to learn and grow in the department is worth it.
Good people, good work environment, shift premium and OT, flexible schedule
Quality Assurance (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 March 2017
Sr management needs to prioritize projects, and improve management style. Listen to their employees. Unrealistic expectations. Expectation to work 24/7. Employees/Teams are flexible and supportive. Good people to work with. Everyone under stress to meet customer deadlines. Quality and compliance is impacted. Worst company culture.
Good for beginners to obtain Canadian experience
Chaotic place to work, everyone running around last minute to meet deadlines. Constant training required
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 February 2016
Terrible place to work at. They have absolutely no regards toward work-life balance. They hire production people on salary-basis, so that they don't have to pay overtime. What kind of a company hires their production workers on a salary-basis? They can tell you one fine day not to come to work because they have no work for you that day and make you owe them hours. And then make you work extra say 10 hours, sometimes even 18 hours later some other day. And if your extra working hours go beyond the amount of hours you "owe" them, then they tell you to "bank" your hours. And you have to have "banked" 40 hours in order to be able to qualify for overtime pays. So you will only get overtime starting from your 41st hour of actual overtime. But in real, you can never get out of the cycle of 40 hours owed because they will keep telling you to not come when they see you are reaching your 40 bank hours.
You will either always owe them hours, or keep banking upto 40 hours in order to qualify for overtime pays AFTER your first 40 extra hours of work. All policies that benefits them, nothing for you.
Don't accept offers from this company, but if you do, make sure you get everything written down clearly in the contract and don't let them bank or owe hours! Overtime is overtime PERIOD! you can't send someone home some day, nor can you ask employees to bank hours!
you can climb up cause a lot of people quit every other day
