Fun and enjoyable workplace.
Carpenter (Former Employee), OakvilleJuly 29, 2013
Pros: get to travel a lot(not in one place), work as a team to get the job done, finish work whenever the job site is finish, pick our own breaks
Cons: breaks are not paid for, long hours so you come home and only get a couple of hours then bed time then you work the next day, tiring
Everyday I have worked there I have mainly been ripping out Drywall/Plaster and getting rid of mold after a flood in a clients basement. I also had to clean up all the Drywall and take it out to the side of the road for garbage to take. I have learned how to take apart Drywall and get rid of mold easily. I had a lot of Co-workers I was with in the past – more... and most of them were nice and helped/train me as we went a long each day. The hardest part of the job would have to be ripping out drywall just because that's mainly the only thing you have to do except for the clean up part. – less

Great place to work with fantastic opportunities
Project Manager (Current Employee), GuelphMarch 20, 2013
Pros: education, advancement, bonus, benefits
Cons: long hours (emergency work), slow industry periods
Winmar is overall a great place to work and the owner and management team were fantastic. The work is intellectually stimulating and I had some fantastic opportunities to advance my education.
The reason for a job seach is economic, as such, the industry is slowing down and I need to support a family.

stock controller (Former Employee), nelspruitOctober 1, 2012
Pros: when its someones birthday all ladies together go out for something to eat
Cons: normal working hours
a day at winmar is very busy. starts at 7:30 but i started earlier because of the work load. i did the receiving of goods when the trucks offload. when there was no trucks i helped with the issue of goods to custumers and to load the bakkies for deliveries. i learned that its better to worked togeher than to try to do something on your own. with stocktakings – more... to work together is realy fun. i loved the people that i have worked with. the hardest part of the job was the big bags and boxes that we as women had to carry when there were no men avalible. i enjoyed staying busy. all parts of the job was very interesting and i enjoy doing work that is interesting and keeps me busy. the owner is a lady and she understands when you go to her if you have a problem. her husband is aslo part of management. – less
