Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON22 January 2019
Highly productive days. I have learned how to successfully operate many types of machines and equipment. Management struggles to schedule jobs accordingly and bad decisions on die designs for machine runs.

Don't quit your present job for this work place.
General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON28 August 2018
I'm warning people not to quit there present job and work here. Management will just use people on probation and let them go. The cycle will repeat will rehire and release them. Not worth working here 20 min. break/lunch on a 8 hour shift.
Pros

Cons
Management will stab you in the back

Union is a bad.
Union national Representative plays golf with the plant manager.
Co-workers back stab each other daily.
Dangerous work environment.
Dusty,dirty and smells terrible all the time.
Very hot in summer in the factory.

Raccoons and stray cats roam the factory.
Management receives crooked kickbacks from vendors/suppliers and head office and the owner have no idea this is happening since opening day in 2006.

Iffy place
Production and trades (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON29 June 2018
It's not for everyone.
-The wage and benefits, job security are good.
-Can be dirty and unsafe environment.
-Manager to employee relationships are not good.
-feels like its company vs union. Managers don't realize a little bit of moral goes hand in hand with productivity and profit. Old school mentality.
-safety can be prematurely enforced. Have to look out for yourself.
- co workers are friendly
- continental shifts rotate quickly harsh on your body and safety.
-dusty
Pros
Security, wages, benefits
Cons
Dirty, dangerous, management

Productive and Fast environment
Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 June 2017
A steady job with lots of overtime, excellent benefits and very good pay. The draw backs are the shift work, switching to Days, to evening to midnights, can create jet lag effect and disrupt sleeping patterns and be hard on the body to adjust. In the summer, the factory can get very hot.
Pros
Excellent benefits and pay
Cons
Shift work i.e. midnight shift

La confiance des managers
Maintenance and training Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 March 2017
Je travaille en total autonomie. Je réponds aux urgences de la production. Je suis sur les projets neufs;
J'ai appris une nouvelle façon de travailler complétement différente de l'Europe
L'aspect le plus difficile a été la barrière de la langue. Mais l'aspect le plus facile a été l'aide apporté par l'entourage pour la compréhension.
Pros
L'adaptation avec les gens

Mentally depleting environment to work in
Assistant Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 June 2016
As an intern your typical day varies from task to task from helping machine operators to remedial tasks such as cleaning areas multiple times to pass time. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the rotating shifts as they switched weekly. Co-workers varied significantly as there were some that worked extremely hard and were willing to work with you and teach you what you need to do. Some co-workers would yell at very discriminatory and difficult to work with because they expected you to know everything as a student interning in a factory for the first time. Management is very disorganized as you could be yelled at for doing a task by a supervisor when you were just assigned that task by another supervisor. All in all it is not a place you would want to work for as there are too many politics and discrimination in this company will drain you and have you wishing you could leave. People in management will treat you as if you are less of a person of them by their tone and the way they address you.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Short breaks and lunch, rotating shifts
