Productive and close group of coworkers and manager
Mapterial Planner/Expeditor (Former Employee) –  Dublin, VA3 July 2014
Receive parts schedule list and / or shortage tickets.
Being able to work with outside vendors easily to negotiate needed parts.
Management was supportive when having to negotiate expedite charges were needed ahead of regular delivery to production plant.
Coworkers helped by coordinating with vendors when more than just 1 part was needed from vendor.
The most difficult part of the job was to obtain parts when lost or damaged at plant.
Most rewarding was being able to obtain needed parts ahead of regular scheduled delivery.
Pros
Management very understanding about employees being late due to bad weather.

Good company with bad engineering management
Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) –  Saint-Eustache, QC12 February 2018
Good company with good salary/benefit. Unfortunately, the engineering management is shallow-minded and not well managed. If you are a new employee you have almost zero training and no coaching and they expect you to function without errors, no room for mistakes. Your evaluation is made based on the opinion of few people and if they don't like you for some reasons your days are over. You could achieve a lot of things but if you make a few small mistakes you are finished. They don't treat you like a person as a whole rather like a machine. So think hard before you quit your company to come here.
