Average General Labor
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON5 April 2019
The job is average, you are required to work hard when there is a lot of work to be done. When there aren't many orders there is lighter work to be done like cleaning areas or sorting materials. The work environment is good and the parking is okay.

Uneven
General Production Labor (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 August 2018
Owner, who receives several local Brampton awards for business and employee relations, is oblivious to conditions. As example, they went through 30 - 50 applicants in 2 months that I was there. As with most locations, staff and mgmt contemptuous of contract workers and have hard to keep them and acquire permanent hires.

Aluminum plant, heavy lifting, but one could potentially acquire a skill set.

Productive, excellent place to work and great cooperation among the employees and the management.
Saw Operator (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON26 July 2017
The working environment is awesome, safety measures in place and very busy most of the times.
I gained lots of experiences working with colleagues, supervisors, and managers. I learnt safety procedures, the do's and don'ts in workplace environment and best ways to stay safe while on duty.
Workplace culture we do whatever it takes to get the job going.
I believe there is no job that comes easy but with passion and consistency you make work easy.
The benefits associated with the job makes it enjoyable.
Pros
No free launch but once in a year we have a party

Saw streacher Opperator (Former Employee) –  ON20 November 2013
Excellent working environment where the emphasis is placed on a friendly efficient progressive atmosphere where a shared skill base has developed and where technical information is readily available and shared among co-workers and colleagues, managers are friendly and always readily available when needed.

The work is physically demanding but technically rewarding as the in house training is on going providing every one with valuable job skills, i have enjoyed my time at Almag and would have no issues with working there in the future.
