Warehouse Associate/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Georgetown, ON – 2 October 2017
The work at Cooper Standard is pretty laid back. Although my position was probably to least enjoyable one. It required me to walk around the warehouse and carrying heavy rubber to machine operators. After that there's nothing much to do and if you're not busy, you'll definitely get yelled at

OPERATIONS MANAGER (Current Employee) – Glencoe, ON – 2 August 2017
The company is very traditional in its management style, the facility is currently undergoing major restructuring (was slated for closure). There is plenty of potential for this facility to strive and be a leader for the company and the industry.
lots of potential - workers want effective change
leadership is not progressive enough to capture full potential
My experience at the Glencoe plant(terminated employee)
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Glencoe, ON – 18 May 2017
Stay away !! This place will just use you to get what they want, then let you go right before you make your probation period and get in the union. They look for any excuse to get rid of you, then hire someone else for a few months. It's a game that they play so that they don't have to pay benefits.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 9 April 2017
I enjoyed my time while at cooper standard although i did not like the mandatory overtime or the amount i was shifted around the factory. This is not terrible but there is a lot of things that the union does that makes it much better.
Operations teams are knowledgeable and willing to teach

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Georgetown – 9 January 2017
At Cooper Standards I learned alot from my co-workers and management such as decision making under highly pressured situations and very good time management. It was a great place to work. Working at cooper made me a better employee and has prepared me to take on more challenging opportunities
Factory Worker (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 4 January 2017
Cooper Standard Automotive was a great place to work. There are many team building skills and opportunities and the management team works incredibly hard to try and meet the needs of each and every employee.
