Production Worker (Current Employee) – Whitby, ON – 14 February 2017
Woodbridge Foam has provided me with dependable employment since I have started with the company. It offers me a place to work free from judgement. I've grown as a person since I first began working there. Woodbridge has allowed me to take it upon myself to become a better worker by learning new jobs within the company. I have developed greater team-building skills since I have been at the company, and try to use them every day.
Process Engineer (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 6 September 2016
There were plenty of challenges within the work environment and there was always a problem that could be solved in an innovative way. Managers were very friendly. Union workers could be a challenge to work with or very helpful.
You will never be bored
Caustic environment (literally, you will work with cyanide and raw fiber glass)
A decent place to work when I was there 9 years ago.
Enerflex Operator Protective Foam Production (Former Employee) – Tilbury, ON – 24 August 2015
It was a great place to start at a factory job for the first time. Once you got into the union, it was okay. I worked all 3 shifts, mostly midnights, and got to know all the people. Good wages and benefits up until the massive lay off and closure.
Great place to work for a new phenomenon of making cars lighter with inclusion of foam parts
Process Technician (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 23 January 2015
A typical day starts with the meeting with process manager to discuss about the modification of current manufaturing processes and about the status on ongoing projects. In addition, we explore vairous ways to design processes for new products and packaging standards.
Learned tool and fixture designs, APQP process,basic troubleshooting of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, the trend of pressure and temperature of steam and cold water affect the products, how to handle the process and manufacturing department in the absence of the manager and supervisor, and what the different automotive companies' requirements are.
Management is always eager to help and push me to achieve my goals. I have given freedom to scheduale and run manufactuing trials for new products.
All the co-workers are very friendly and willing to guide me in right direction.
The hardest part of the job was to deal with machine operators and packers in the absence of the manager and supervisor. but eventually I learned the way to work with them and fulfilled the requirements.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to run the manufacturing lines during lunch time, came up with different ideas to make the lives of operators and packers easy, and reduced cycle time and scrap.
Great opportunity to learn how automotive industry works
