Good pay but very unorganized
Electrical Test Technician (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON28 June 2017
While this job does pay well and the people I work with are great, the company seems to be all over the place. Communication is lacking between each individual area and everything seems to be rushed giving poor quality products.
If you have no education in either electrical, welding or painting good luck with job security. People are always getting laid off left to right. The class 6 jobs that require education aren't as bad but there are still lay offs there too.
Pros
Good pay, Steady hours, Lots of overtime
Cons
Working in a chaotic environment and never feeling proud of the finished product, Politics present, Accountability out the window

Great place to work
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 June 2017
Sign in and have a quick overview from shift before starting. Distributing supplies and products to assigned workers.
The management team was great.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning more about the process and seeing how the airplanes were built.

Great job, but not enough work.

The work atmosphere is not good but the work was interesting. The ethics of senior staff when I was there was not something I am comfortable with. I regret my time there.

This company did not addapt to the new market and is struggling to re-organise. The people that work there are great and most customers seems to be happy with the product, but there is major project delays, and lot of quality issues that need to be adressed. It is however a good place to learn and will forge your caracter.

Every single aspect of the management needs to be changed
