Maintenance Welder (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 31 December 2017
Lots to learn at a company this size. Tons of double overtime in my department. They'll pay schooling/tuition for advancement in your trade after your apprenticeship. For the true tradespeople that go all the way and obtain your C of Q/Red Seal, full-time regular hire immediately and no contract. Pension/benefits and a yearly bonus starts right away, and 2 years for profit sharing. Never have to pay for a gym membership again seeing as they have 3 gyms plus one at the recreation park. Endless family programs as well, i.e. Hockey, angling etc. I've worked at quite a few companies including trade unionized ones. Dofasco is much higher than average wages and I wouldn't leave here for any unionized company(unless I got laid off, but I would come back as soon as I could).
High wages, endless overtime, plenty of room for advancement
