Not good
Not safe! not clean! not organized! not professional! pay is insulting, and the temperature is extremely hot. The sprinklers actually went off one day because the factory was so hot in side.
Need to bring a change of clothes in the summer, because your clothes are soaked through, within 4 hours.

A dangerous place to work with no regards for worker safety.
This is a mediocre job if you can put up with rotating 12 hour shifts and just want to get in and out. Although this is an easy place to get a job at however you need to be very careful with what you agree to do and how you work. Some coworkers were great, others not so much. Like any job.
Getting into more details however;

The culture is extremely toxic at the Brampton location. It is frowned upon if you speak up about poor work conditions. Management finds petty ways to retaliate.

You should expect machinery and other equipment to stay in dangerous conditions for long periods of time while being expected to continue to use it. There is no such thing as continuous process improvement at Can Art. Dangerous things to watch for are; lack of safety guards around moving equipment, areas where water pools around electrical panels, grease and oil spills because employees don't care enough to clean up after themselves, overhead hoist parts falling off above you due to lack of maintenance, lack of ventilation throughout entire building and airflow in certain areas.

Maintenance team constantly taking shortcuts, some are poorly trained and sit/walk around on their phones and hide all day. Maintenance response time is usually very slow.

In March 2019 maintenance staff decided on multiple occasions to pour old waste oil into back parking lot storm drains instead of ordering the proper containers for disposal.

These are just some things that everyone should know before working here. I really recommend looking elsewhere first.
Pros
Pays on time, thats it
Cons
Everything

Productive workplace.
Productive workplace, there is always something to be taken care of so you are always busy between 2 plants. Working in an individual manner and team member.

Too much turnover
New people constantly.They are a unorganized company that does not learn from it's mistakes. Suprised they are still in business. Too hot in summer and no regulars breaks. Hard to get on break because breaks are taken individually so people need things constantly leaving you unable to get on break or lunch yourself and having to hustle like crazy before and after break or lunch. If another driver quits or is ill youare expected to do double duty which is petty much impossible without losing your mind or driving faster than you should be.

They don’t care about you at all hr lady lazy
Management is the worst I will never ever encourage any forklift driver to work there. They over work you though you’re driving and they pay less for it. Cut billets take how much the press wants off, dump scraps, strap it back, then u get called by other press to either move the fill racks put an empty one or load billets, then set up the train to load the materials in the oven the age it, then record it in the computer. It’s a lot of work for 19 bucks go try it out yourself u will see

fun but stress filled job
stressful, learned about aluminum, management didn't care or listen to the other workers, a lot of turn over, hardest part of my job was doing 3 peoples jobs and trying to keep up with a machine, the most enjoyable part of the job, was the people I worked with
Cons
12 hrs a day, no heat breaks, unprofessional supervisors

productive fun workplace with friendly staff
fun, fast paced job, with possible room for growth. i worked as a packer and a racker, assigned teams would always try to reach and or exceed the expectations for productions. lunches and breaks were sufficient enough to keep the pace up and not fall behind.

Terrible Place to Work
Hours not conducive to maintaining to balanced life. Shifts are non negotiable with HR.HR is not helpful with workplace concerns and is lazy. Management is terrible and has no consideration for it's employees. Working conditions are awful, especially during the summer. Safety is last thing on their mind if it has anything to do with their productivity. Just a really toxic and stifling environment.
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
Hours, Environment, Management, Hr

poor management
like a walk in a park, so many people come and go. it's very hot and dusty. depending on your position, work can be light, heavy repetitive and stressful. if breaks were given can be 2 to 5 hours apart. fastest I've witness a worker quit was in 3 minutes. extremely poor management. rewards and promotion only given to the favorites not the employee who works hard and truly deserved it. i don't think their wages and benefits will help bring back your sanity when the company constantly compressed the amount of responsibility inside your head and expect you to work 12 hour shift...racism, harassment and drug use is the norm at can art, since management doesn't seem to care.
Pros
always hiring
Cons
equality

Worst place
One of the worst place to work. Most (if not all) of the colleagues, superiors are rude and not ready to help even if its your first day. And top of that, after 1 month of leaving the work, i still haven't been paid my wages even after calling and informing them. I had to give 1 star as there is no option available to give lesser than that
Pros
Break at every 2 hour
Cons
Bad management, rude peoples, no locker facility
