Former Welder (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 10 December 2018
Overall not a bad place to work. There are a few stoners on board and working with them is no fun at all. They are lazy and get mad if you don't pick up their slack. One of the supervisors is useless, so hope that you don't end up on his team. The work is fun and varied, but, when you run out of stuff to do be prepared to be bored beyond belief. The pay is brutal though. Well below industry standard. Learn as much as you can and get out.
Good co-workers. Varied work. Fantastic opportunities to learn.
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 27 April 2018
This place has a very hi quality standard witch makes it a good place to learn. Unfortunately this place is not the place to look for long term employment especially if you are supporting a family. Start wages at other companies are higher than what their senior welder fitters make after ten years of being there. The wages are so low that you are forced to work over time and be away from your family more than anyone should have to be just to be able to support that family.

Welder/Fitter (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 19 April 2018
All custom fitting/welding, never do the same thing twice.
Good place to learn especially coming out of school. Everyone is helpful. Can get experience in many different materials. Pay less then expected but for what you gain in experience and benefits it works out
Benefits which is a bonus and they have work hours where you get off at noon fridays

One of the few places one can see the engineering side and the fabrication all in one roof. Lots of people willing to train you on different jobs. Safety seems to be important but can use some work. Wages aren't competitive considering you have to buy your own tools. benefits and vacation take a while to get, but great spot to gain experience.
General Labourer (Current Employee) – Cainsville, ON – 29 June 2017
Lunch time is 420. Almost all the employees and management smoke pot during lunch break on the afternoon shift. If you get too wasted to work thatt's ok, the supervisor will fill out an incident report claiming you hit your head and send you home. Easygoing place to work. Pay sucks but lunch makes up for it.
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 19 December 2016
Anywhere they say you have to provide your own tools right off the bat is a place you do not want to work at. I got a job there 18$ start not bad, had my own helmet and jacket but they wanted me to buy everything else id need to work...

Dirty and unsafe conditions. Kind of a low-life mentality with workers unwilling to help you if you don't fit in (you don't have tattoos, smoke or constantly spit). Brantford plant manager is like a bulldog glaring at people and pushing work out the door before it is completed properly. When the problems are discovered - it was the employees fault.
Junior Welder (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 30 September 2016
This place seems good at first. They say they are willing to help you learn...which the senior welders do. Even when the senior welders say that you are doing a great job, the management decides to fire many people at a time. Seems to me that this might be common practice.
Although many tasks were repetitive the Ancaster facility maintains a high degree of quality. The shop supervisor is professional and knowledgeable but friendly and always willing to help when needed. Overall a very nice place to work.
Interesting work projects which challenges you to hone your welding skills
Unstable job market and a bit low on the pay scale for what is asked of employees
