Cons: hot working conditions, some long hours
A typical day at work was quite normal, set up, wash and paint tanks, all the way to decaling and getting tanks ready to ship. I learned a great deal of things at westeel, to many to really recount. Management was excellent except for one, but last I heard he was removed from the company. The plant manager was very personable, he would do everything in his power to help someone along. The hardest part of the job was the heat in the paint booth aside from that, the job was quite enjoyable. Had I not moved I would still be working there. The work/life balance was great, there was overtime or the occasional Saturday asked for. They always tried to make sure the employees were happy, from random BBQs to Christmas parties, golf tournaments and company matched RRSPs. Westeel was a great company to work for, I would highly recommend joining that team.
