Hectic and stressful place
Assistant Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 February 2018
Not a bad company to work for but the prospect of advancement is limited. Still a highly traditional style of management that needs improvement. It's a typical 9-5 and work is sometimes slow. When it picks up it can be overwhelming.
Pros
Good xmas and BBQ gatherings
Cons
Not a fun environment sometimes

Amazing Company to work for
Service & Safety Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 October 2017
It is such a good company to work for, everyone is so helpful and friendly, a great place to learn. Management takes time out to explain things, in my short time here the company has allowed me to take many courses to help advance my career.

Back stabbing
Service Coordinator & Safety Administrator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB5 July 2017
They let one of the salesman smoke in the building, don't dare say anything or else your career will be cut short. Was told that from a manager not long before I was fired being told I was getting complaints but no details at all. Not worth working there.
Pros
None
Cons
Management needs managing!

Extremely quality driven
Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC1 May 2017

Pros
Weekly Pay, Gas Card

Main Office Location

Solid Company
Product Designer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 March 2017
I have been working at Cimco Refrigeration full-time (More than 1 year).
Great benefits and pay for someone starting out (stock plan, pension competitive pay 3 weeks vacation), casual work environment, Christmas parties, free coffee.. you will learn a lot.
Great place to learn about the energy industry as well as product design.
You will work a lot of overtime and there is no training so that it's hard.

Great employer, flexible hours, inviting culture
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 March 2017
CIMCO allows you to set your own schedule (with a few limitations) and have the resources to teach new engineers everything they need to know about the industry. The design experience is also very practical as the engineers are expected to interact with the millwrights and pipe fitters who build the systems to solve problems and improve on the systems. The company provides monthly barbeques (when it isn't winter) and the people are always available to provide whatever resources or support an engineer would need. The work tends to have a seasonal feel, during the construction months you may have to work overtime and during the winter things slow down.

Great for new grads

TSSA Welder
TSSA Welder (Former Employee) –  Cherry St7 June 2013
Shop always full of fumes from welding galvanized or else you work in hot tents that stink like solvent or in +30C shipping containers, group leaders and new foreman are insecure and place blame on the new workers for going over budgeted hours on projects when the hours were just poorly estimated, in meetings they don't want ideas they just want you to not rock the boat. (of the 6 new welders that started not one of them is there 2 years later, they just want to hire complacent scared workers who don't know there are better opportunities.)

Pros
Livable wage and decent benefits, majority of floor workers are good guys
Cons
Lower class leaders are too political and insecure, you will get reprimanded for other peoples mistakes on big projects
