Standard Factory work.
Overhead Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 March 2018
Standard factory work, though the moral of the work force could be better. Management instituting mandatory over time, and very little addressing of the concerns of the employees.

Poorly managed Company
Electrical rectification Technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 March 2018
Alstom is just concerned about gaining contracts in North America. The Citadis Spirit light rail trains are very poorly made and are very in-safe.
In a nut shell Alstom Transport sells a train to North America, produces the train very poorly, and will charge the client through the roof maintaining the train over the next 30 years.
Thumbs down to this company.
Pros
New technology
Cons
Very secretive with their actions. Very shady business practice.

Electromechanical Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 December 2017
Pay is OK, would be much better if it was not done through a recruiter. We lose around $7 an hour to the recruiter which is more than aggravating. Management is great, however, and most that work there are very friendly.
Pros
Cool work

There was no room for advancement and company culture was outdated for this era. The company had lost pride in their work. The plant needed organization and a big clean up.
Pros
Close to home.
Cons
No room for growth with the company.

Welder/Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 October 2017
Hardest part of the job is the drive. I travel 83 kilometres one way and I start at 6 am. The traffic home is sometimes 2hrs drive home at night. The people are amazing.
