Owner is too hands on and overbearing
The people are great but management is weak as the owner pushes out managers that have better options.
Lots of new technology going on so interesting place to work.

No growth opportunity & too much interference in work
Management did not trust or care about any employee and there was too much interference when working. Employees were not remaining and there was a continuous turnover of staff.

Uncomfortable work environment to say the least
The owner is a pompous man who allows his company to be run by inappropriate touchy - feely guys, with absolutely no respect for how to cordially and respectfully deliver any type of communication to the extremely loyal workers. During my employment there were no safety inspections, reports, nothing! I seen half a dozen Plant Supervisors and Quality Managers come and go because they weren't allowed to speak there mind. No HR available to protect the employee.

Worst Company Terrible owner & His Son
Except one guy all management is garbage. Leave alone the training and coaching, they don’t even know how to talk to employees/People. Everyone is thrown under immense pressure.

Owner’s son is probably the biggest reason for the high turnover. God bless all the current employees.

Stay away
Pathetic is the word for the place. People who have managed to stay there and got used to the toxic negative culture there just want to point fingers at you.
They talk a lot about the extensive training program but there’s no training at all. Nobody cares about your training and If you try to learn on your own the supervisors abuse you of standing around and not cleaning the floors. HR is equally bad. Worst place to work. We can adjust with the 12 hour shifts but the work culture is disastrously negative and unacceptable.

Just pathetic environment.
Pros
None

The Unfortunate Truth about Adventec.
The first thing I have to say is that these fake positive comments are hilarious; they couldn’t be any further from the truth! Adventec is a bad company, a very bad company.. Let’s discuss the word “standard”, the managers and owner of Adventec would have you think they invented the word. There are no standards at Adventec, there are roving quality exceptions. Further to that, people at Adventec will tell you that this or that isn’t our standard. If you were to ask what the standard is, nobody could tell you! If there happens to be a coffee cup left in the cafeteria from the previous shift; you will be shouted at and blamed for why a non-standard item is in there, and how you were such a terrible employee to not notice it and to not clean it and how that isn’t our “standard”. QA “standards” also rotate. Do the Quality standards change? Yes, pretty much every day, unless an audit is approaching, then everything gets changed very quickly back to what they are documented as! Every day, you will hear of a great new and improved way to do things and yet nothing changes. “Loyal team”??? While everyone is looking for another job and screaming to get out of there! The fact that Adventec is multicultural does not mean that they are non-discriminatory. Some supervisors always pick on the same people constantly. Not to mention the merry-go-round of supervisors walking in and out of that company every month! Long hours are only made worse by the constant harassing and verbal abuse. Job titles don’t mean anything is true, everyone is a treated like a piece of garbage by power crazed managers, - more...
Pros
There is life after Adventec.
Cons
Pretty much everythig about the place. Management is probably the worst and the culture is TERRIBLE.

They talk a big game
Was hired as production technician.

Work culture burnt me out, high turnover of employees and management style is poor. Highly reliant on temporary labour.


**does not honour apprenticeship contracts** They will sign you up and make no effort to train you. Don't waste your time, your better off finding a different employer.
Pros
Lots of upward mobility from attrition
Cons
Continental twelves, does not honour apprenticeship contracts

My first week there I realized I made a big mistake taking a job there
Wow is alI can say. Extremely unprofessional, training is not accurate and standards constantly change. Pay was 25 cents above minimum, but yet they squeezed 12 hr shifts out of me and only allowed for 1 30 min lunch (7 hrs after u started was the norm!) and 2 15 min breaks for the entire 12 hour shift. Pathetic. Run you will regret working there. I'm not even going to put this experience on my resume. I just want to forget about this place.
Pros
Some people were nice
Cons
slave to the job, low pay, different standards depending on who u talk to, sink or swim attitude from the management with very little guidance and incompetent training.

Pros Outweigh the Cons
From my experience I would say Adventec is a good, yet challenging work environment. It's not a job you will cruise through. It's not a job where you can put your feet up and expect your yearly pay rise. Those who strive for perfection and actively contribute through actions or suggestions are noticed and praised. Very results driven firm, which to an extent is understandable considering the market they are in. Job titles mean nothing in this company. If you're a manager, don't expect that you won't be getting your hands dirty. Don't expect to have a list of daily duties and be ticking them off each day - it seems everyone is somehow involved in everything (which can be good and bad), and your job tends to change and develop constantly.

Managers have high expectations, however I choose to look at this as a positive. They challenge you and in turn you develop and hone your skills.


The best part about Adventec is by far the people. The long hours are definitely eased by the people you work with. I truly find it hard to believe the comments of discrimination made previously. Adventec is one of the most diverse companies I have worked in. It is actually something Adventec prides itself in. Many people share their culture by bringing in traditional foods for coworkers to try and an annual potluck is held at the end of the year where we also celebrate different cultures.


I have worked at Adventec for a few years, and I will say it takes a special breed to be successful here. Super high expectations, but if you are up for a challenge and keen to grow in a very

Poor treatment of hourly employees. Discrimination, demeaning, and abuse from supervisors
Ethnic cultures being abused verbally daily by supervisors. No true procedures followed to insure safety of machine operators from injuries. Total chaos in regards to quality standers. Everyday the stander changes at to what is acceptable, in quality. If you are offered a position there, run the other way quick. Employees last only 6 months on average.
Pros
coworkers are very friendly
Cons
management staff< Benefits, job security

Very welcoming and friendly environment
The employees are very warm and welcoming. They are beyond willing to help you learn anything you are curious about. The employers are easy to talk to and confront. The work keeps you on your feet but if you like to be kept busy this company is perfect for you. You need to be a hard worker and learn to keep up a steady pace through out the day but its well worth it.
Cons
Usually given 12 hour continental shifts

Great Experience and Exposure to several areas of Manufacturing
Adventec is a small company where employees work closely with Top and Middle Management which gives the employee the ability to interact with individuals of varying educational backgrounds and experience.
Due to the size of the company, your daily duties are not limited to what's written on your job description as each employee tends to wear several hats allowing you to increase your skillset and become more exposed to a wide range of capabilities.

The company is might only be considered small based on the number of employees, but the technology that the Production staff works with is highly advanced making Adventec comparable to any other supplier in the field.

Adventec is very results driven, and with hard work, honesty and loyalty, any employee will be happy here.
Pros
Flexibility, Great Experience, Great Co-workerss
Cons
High Turnover, Long Hours

Worst company in Ontario.
Ridiculously high turnover; toxic owner and environment. Micro-managers who know nothing. Supervisors who are clueless. An extremely disorganized and unsafe work environment. Do not even think of applying to a position here. If you unfortunately end up working at Adventec, you will last maybe 3 months. Nothing but chaos and abuse. Poor pay; poor benefits and an owner who does nothing but yell and abuse employees..
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Pay, benefits, abusive owner, disorganzed, safety, morale, leadership, turnover, professionalism.

Poor and unprofessional working environment
There is a high staff turnover and workers are not expected or encourage to stay with the company for more than 3 months. The use of swearing words is the norm for most staff and management. Very low pay.

Not a good place to work
This company in the automotive industry is not a good place to work. management doesn't really care about their employees, their president only cares about plant equipment and is very disorganized, the company is not very stable and replace people very often. Most people are under pay. this is a place where you cant even take your lunches because people are all over you.

This company has a really bad reputation, they have the ministry there quite often and they always find a way to get away with things.
Pros
80% benefits after 3 months
Cons
very disorganized, poor management, dont care about employees.
