Poor work place

Very poor work place. They cut unbelievable amount of corners and safety issues. As company they do not look out for the fellow workers. As union they do not stand up or give proper representation for the workers “union brother”.

People were fun to work with.

Lovely place, at the tip of lake Superior.Management sucked & were always on the phone trying to make you do something.Terrace Bay is a scenic & beautiful place to live in, people are nice & friendly. Lots of activities can be done, from fishing, boating, trekking, camping etc.Good place to live in & a descent company to work for.For the locals it must be a huge culture shock to see so many Indians there, from different parts of India.But India is a land of diverse cultures, & peace loving people so blending in takes time, as language barrier is the hardest to break.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Non professional work without safety on priority

This place is so bad that they don’t follow safe work practice, Management just want to job done without having any downtime of their old machinery, they don’t care how you get it done, Most of people in top management are from India because this is Indian company and they don’t know how Canadian work culture suppose to be,

Pros

Nothing except cheap cost of living

Cons

They don’t care about safety, It’s not good for new graduate of zero experience guy

No work life balance, stressful( Modernized Slavery)

Please safe yourself the head and heart ache and don't build a- life around this Company. Pros: Good pay Lovely city Great people who do not mean to vent or hurt you but are always under intense pressure Cons Never ending deadlines Modernized slavery( trade off between money and peace) Disregard the laws of the land. Truth is most of the employees here are un happy. The F word is used here like a language.

Staff employees are treated like slaves

Worst company to work in Canada. Management is not having any respect to law of land. They treat people as an object, they treat employees as slaves. I don’t understand how management is bringing people from India, instead of giving opportunity to locals or Canadian. Lots of labour law violations, pollution to environmental. Violation of immigration law. They force people to work 12 hrs per day and pay only for 8hrs, this for management

Can be better with forward thinking

Good working experience overall. Unstable management and brain drain. Turnover rate is high, perhaps partly due to the remote location. There is a disparity in salaries because of a lot of expatriates are brought, paid insanely high salaries despite no Canadian education or experience while Canadian, more educated and experienced staff, including managers, get dismal pays. Bunch of promoted leaders have no aptitude for business other than domain knowledge they constantly boast of. People sticking only because of fat salaries. Machinery is poorly taken care of. There are some exceptional Managers though.

Pros

beautiful place / town

Cons

Productive & fun at work place

It would be great if every work day was filled with fun and exciting workplace. Indoor games are the perfect to keep brain alert and focused. It increases energy levels by getting people out of their seats and improves the moral in the office.

Pros

Free accommodation

Cons

Working during weekends

productive and safe workplace. good people to work with.

long 12 hour shift would start at 5 or 6am. the coworkers are friendly and inviting in what can be a scary place to work. management was understanding and capable of doing their jobs. hardest part was walking into unexpected gases. best part was the free lunches from the golden rail!

Pros

free lunches during long shut downs, clean work environment and a friendly management.

Cons

long hours, can be a dangerous place to work

Pros

Exposure of International Experience

Weather is too cold
