Wharf crew in Blacks Harbour, NB
No real career.
I worked for the wharf crew department and let's just say that cookes moto of " we plan your future path" stuff is just if you work in the office. You will notice a big difference of how labours are treated compared to the office workers and so on. Fails to provide all safety courses need to do the job lawfully before work should begin (Confined space, fall arrest, MED, forklift ticket, anyone with first aid) while I was there because of the department size. Be expected to only know when you work one day in advance. Shifts generally start at 12PM-6PM at any given day and can end 11am the next day and you be expected to work 20 plus hours if need with no night shift premiums and expected to still work for 2 pm the next day without any compensation. Entering the hold of the boat daily to shovel the salmon up the fish hose because of inefficient offloading design with fish blood water constantly spraying you in the face as they use it to control the blood level in the hold. Outside constantly with no real lunch area with a chair to sit down and even eat. Something you would think as a benefit would be the ability to have a break whenever you finish offloading a boat for a few hours while getting paid is awesome but is near torture if you actually are a worker and don't have a place to go while there is a break as there are no accommodations at work. Expected to do other jobs like cleaning up the pallet yard unexpectedly or dump tubs of fish up in the factory (if you want to or not). Almost unchangeable toxic atmosphere because of department size and any change "could" affect some people's personal lives. Besides all the negatives I've never been in better shape in my life and I quite enjoy that. You will be jumping, climbing, and lifting all the time while "working". Bluecross they provide is pretty excellent. This job would be more worth the personal life sacrifice if it paid more then 15.5/h starting wage and tops out around 20 with standard overtime applying. In my opinion I've been an excellent worker for them and never have missed or taken a sick day and been there almost 2 years and make 16.8. Stay in school kids.

No proper supervision
If you get injured on the job make sure it's on a camera or it didn't happen there. Don't bother to report unsafe practices they don't fix the problems. If like working long hours for little pay this is the place for you. If your a favorite to management then you have no worries.
Plastic welder in Back Bay, NB
Management is horrible there are no team players there very ignorant and have no interest in the employees just there on job titles they are power hungry individuals
Awful place to work
Horrible place to work. Spent 4 years there. If you don’t catch on to things trust me you will be considered useless. Would not recommend without experience
Crazy work atmosphere. Lots of yelling, confusion and angry co-workers. Long hours, needlessly complicated situations causing problem after problem. Avoid this place.
