Former Welder (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON10 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.
Pros
Good co-workers. Varied work. Fantastic opportunities to learn.
Cons
Druggies, low pay.

Great if you are fresh to the trade.
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON27 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.

**Oppression**: the state of being subject to unjust treatment or control.
Pros
Great place to learn
Cons
Everything else

Good for learning all areas, benefits, hours
Welder/Fitter (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON19 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
Pros
hours benefits experience helpful
Cons
pay

Great place to work and learn at the same time
Employee (Current Employee) –  Cainsville Ont.21 November 2017
I've worked here over a decade and have always had challenges before me. As soon as I mastered one task the next was upon me.

Management very helpful but spread a little thin.

Wages definitely a little low but can still make a decent pay check with overtime.

Considering with everything I've learned ( knowledge of the trade) at work the wages aren't that bad.
Pros
Learning Environment
Cons
Long hours

Good place to learn and gain experience.
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON19 November 2017
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.
Pros
Learn lots, great people
Cons
Low wages

Lots of drug use
General Labourer (Current Employee) –  Cainsville, ON29 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.

decent start rate but you need to buy everything
Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON19 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...

Unstable with constant in-fighting
former employee (Former Employee) –  Brantford24 November 2016
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.

Good welders are totally unnoticed.

Pay is the worst in the industry.
Pros
none come to mind
Cons
work environment, management and pay

helpful co-workers, no security
Junior Welder (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON30 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.

Good Place to work
Unknown (Former Employee) –  Unknown24 June 2016
Good place to work, people were nice and respectfull.
Low wage.
No room for advancement.
Raises were far from what you were worth.

When it was time for lay off there was no reason why someone was chosen to be let go.
People were picked and that was it.
Pros
Good people, challenging projects
Cons
Low wage, not enough wage increase, no room for advancement

Intermediate Detailer/ Designer (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON26 January 2015
I wanted to chop certain people's heads off. But the Engineering people there are quite good. So working with most staff is good, but HR is quite abismal. It's a one way street with this company.
