Support Production Supervisor Waterville TG (Former Employee) – Waterville, QC – 10 August 2015
Waterville Tg is a great company to work for. It has great salaries and benefits. It is a unionized environment, therefore in my experience there is two different worlds.
As a staff member:
Work life balance is very hard, because the shop runs 24/7, if you disconnect for 16 hours you become lost in all the new events. Taking a vacation for more then one week at a time is frowned upon and also very hard to do if you do not have more then 10 years seniority. The most enjoyable part of the job and worst part is the people. But I believe that is normal.
The hardest part of the job is trying to obtain your long term objectives. The objectives change each day and sometime they are a 180 degree change.

I liked that even thought the job got a little repetitive, i would challenge myself to do more than expected to keep motivated. It also helped me with my time management skill and i loved my co-workers.

Work here is very easy, although very repetitive, benefits are good, not many places offer them, pay is higher then 11.50, plus u can earn higher wages if your willing to advance, everyone on here complaining only cuz they were let go for never showing up or not doing their work, it's not the best job but it's good for what's around here. The company is expanding that's why they are hiring alot

Snakes will walk all over you they say there is a union there but there isnt they allow the company to walk all over its employees. With any luck this place will join the rest of the closures in the area during contract time . Turn a round is unreal just walk through people like crazy 20 people every 2 weeks

Waterville TG, is hands down the worst place to work. They hire many employees with NO intention of keeping you. The orientation period is 720 hours, and you are not a member of the union until you finish the 720 hours (yet you still pay union dues during probation). Which makes it easy for them to terminate you without cause. Management is terrible and the orientation and training process is TERRIBLE. Orientation went from 1 week, now down to 4 hours in class and then they sent you to your process to get trained by low-life criminals that some how managed to get a job there. Also a "condition of employment" is that you must be able to work any shift ( morning, afternoon, nights). Which you WILL be put on nights to start, and it is almost impossible to get on another shift. You are expected to meet a certain production percentage, which is not reasonable for the $11.50/hr they pay you. With all the deductions you only take home $350 a week for 40 hours. Working at Waterville is like working a sweatshop!! You are treated with no respect and will be terminated for no reason before you reach the end of your probation period!!
Great colleagues with excellent management to work for

- Typical day at work - Start at 7 or 8 am and finish at 4 or 5 pm. - I have further developed my skills of multitasking, organizational, interpersonal, problem solving, project management and analytic skills working at Waterville TG - I have enjoyed learning new things
This company doesn't care about their workers. They want you to do more work then what your getting paid for. Then firer you. This company turns over more employees then any company I have ever seen. No one likes working here. Don't waste your time they only 11.50 and make you pay for your own benefits and life insurance. So at the end of the week your left with less then 350 a week
