The HR director is a used car salesmen, they treat their employees like faeces and try to cover it up by feeding you lunch that comes off your pay.
They treat everyone like criminals and they rip off there contractors

Management doesn't care about their staff, if you complain to HR you just get criticized, expect you to work over time without compensation, extremely high turn around, you can basically do nothing right if you aren't in a manager position and are used as a scape goat. There is no respect for employees, whether you've been there for 10 minutes or 10 years. Don't waste your time with this company.
Treat employees unfairly.
Not a family oriented company.
Everyone is two faced.
Super high turnaround - and you find out why, quickly.
No one has any idea what’s going on, ever.
Look elsewhere - office cliques, boss Is a bully, lack of process and leadership, broken promises, lack of respect, one way street, over-worked employees, lack of communication, lack of team spirit, constant humiliation.
they do what they want.once you have a position they try and keep you there for life . i was hired for a different position and promised to be placed on it. that was two years ago. they'll hire off the street and be giving the job you were hired for in the first place.
money is good but the management is bad and they don't care
If you like being worked to the bone, treated like a number and having seniority mean nothing...this is the place for you. They think throwing money at people solves any issue. They will promise bonuses to get you to do something and then try their best not to pay you (I know contradicting right?). There is a lot of labour involved in trucking...seems like they higher anyone with an AZ now..and when equipment is destroyed everyone's bonuses get affected...the cabs are really nice...but you will have to run if your truck isn't safe....and of you bring it up they will give you another unsafe truck...I honestly could keep going but dont want to waste anymore time
Typical day for a crane operator is to load trucks and railcars and sort material. Expect to be called on the radio every 5 mins and be micro managed within an inch of your life by the many white hats that drive around in vehicles all day waiting for you to make a wrong move or to simply change the original instructions you were given by someone else.
Traffic in the yard is absolutely nuts so expect to be stressed out moving your large crane through tight spaces while trying to drive around truck drivers that you can't communicate with who are trying to also navigate through the sea of obstacles.
Turn over rate is astronomical so make sure you don't wreck anything or damage a truck. Not showing up to work or being late will also get you fired.
Your coworkers don't care about you and will sell you out to save themselves whenever they can, nobody will own up to their own mistakes as its always someones else's fault.
On the bright side you will have a chef making you lunch everyday for a very low price that is taken off your pay cheque and at christmas the owner has raffles for big prizes.
analyser,classer le métal reçu, se servir des outils d'analyse et machines,on nous demandais de faire des choses dangereuses sans formation adéquate, seul bon point est d'apprendre sur les différents types de métaux
The management team claims to have your back until something comes up that requires them to actually do something. I was there for 1 year and within that time, despite staying late almost everyday and coming in on weekends no one was willing to teach me anything past the basic points and even just learning them was hard with the lack of leadership. Brought this up to my supervisor who told me that hed get me trained on the forklift, 4 months later still not a single word of training. The employees who have been there for years basically refuse to teach you anything because they’d rather have you do the hard work while they sit in the machines and drive around. When I tried asking my coworker what I should be doing during a maintenance on the machine I was working on he told me to go hide somewhere or something. Completely unprofessional company. The lunch program was the only decent part but even that was pretty much always chicken and salad. Forget about having juice with your lunch though because your coworkers take them from the fridge and bring them home and out in the factory with them. Also don’t leave anything in the fridge or in the change room that isn’t locked up, it’ll be gone by time you go back for it.
For the last 6 months since starting here I daily have to pinch myself that working as a lugger driver for american iron and metal isn't a dream. If you are a truck driver that enjoys a wee bit of physical work(chains/binders/tarping)combined with working with what has to be the friendliest and supportive of work mates/dispatchers then a.i.m. is the place for you!! Benefits after 90 days I believe are top notch. After 6 months their rrsp matching formulae is favourable. At 24$ an hour and overtime after 44 hours it is easy to see that a decent income can be had here. Regularly working 60 hours a week is easy when you love your job... 4$ a day for lunch prepared by an onsite chef is a wonderful added perk. Their onsite maintenance shop is staffed with talented friendly mechanics eagar to keep the equipment in good working order. Trucking for 30+ years I needed a change and I am so glad I did..
