Fact-paced work. You get the same pay even though they add more and more things to the job. Consistent pay with the opportunity for overtime. Good Benefits. New people seem to get full-time positions quickly (within a few months to a year).

A good place for an electrician to challenge themselves and learn about a variety of equipment. Can be stressful and will require shift work and overtime.

Tied to a buzzer telling you when to start and take a break. Union environment. The training is fine. Management are fair but some co-workers are jerks.

Had a very poor experience working at CPK interior products. The work itself is quite easy and repetitive but the constant stress and pressure put on workers due to poor management skills is unprofessional and uncalled for. This place was so bad to go to everyday it made me go to university and get my life together lol. CPK would be great if it wasn't run by complete degenerates. Don't settle for this place go to a better factory with less drama and chaos and a better wage! They also lay you off for a month in January and some months in the summer not a good job for $$ year round.
Pros
money
Cons

Management has no respect or appreciation for the maintenance team. The managers don’t honour the collective agreement and the union doesn’t stand up for its workers. The wage is sub standard for a union shop.

Management is not experienced,very lack of communication , very cheap at Christmas , no appreciation for work getting done. Can't seem to find skilled trades worker's because of lack of wages.

My time at cpk was fair. The people are nice but the job itself can be demanding. Overall this place can be tough but if you are able to work repetitively then you can succeed.

People who work there mess up everything, cheating on new guys and kick you out. Refuse to improve anything. Management want to improve but can move anyone only cheating on new guys.

Start as a temp part time employee. Which means not much. Was working 48 hrs per week from the beginning. No rights, have to have proof for any missed time. Good luck getting time off for anything. HR is a joke, rarely anyone in there and they're all specialists. Which means they only know one part of hr. Takes weeks to months for management to get back to you. Safety is questionable. People just walk where they want and don't look for material handlers. No appreciation given to employees for working mandatory 6 day work weeks. Start on afternoons and good luck getting off them. Union shop so everything goes by seniority.
If you speak up and try to get anything improved. You become a target and management will do thier best to make life even worse. Write ups threats to suspend you. If you have no other choice. Work here till mcdonalds is hiring. Definitely not a place to make a career. Was the worst shop I've ever worked in. People you work with are nice. But that's it. Not worth the money or how little time you'll get to spend with family. Would give - 5 stars if I could. Chronically short people and when they do actually get people hired maybe last a week or less.
Pros
People you work with are nice
Cons
Mandatory Saturday almost every Saturday, management is poor

CPK is a good company to work for overall. But the pay is very low for the automotive industry. A production worker starts at $15.14/hr. plus shift premium. all shifts are 8 hour and if you work on the door or dash line Saturdays can be overtime. the people who you work with are mostly very nice and helpful to new workers. The plant is Unionized by the USW and you have that going for you. Full company payed benefits with pension and matching RRSP for hourly workers.
Pros
Nice coworkers, Management not hostile
Cons
LOW PAY!! Manditory overtime

Lots of fun depending on what line you are on and who you are working with. Afternoon shift is the best, very laid back but you also work hard as well! Only downfall is the staring pay but you get a raise after a year so thats pretty good.

When I first started working for CPK it was called Guelph Products. It was great place to work.Over the years it got worse , not people I worked with online but management. They just don't address issues or concerns for their employees.
Pros
great people to work with online
Cons

At CPK you will be trained on multiple jobs around the plant assembling consoles, doors or dashboards for Chrysler models. The IP line is fast-paced, often tiring work and training is done on the job while the lines run. Team-leads are helpful and run from job to job assisting workers or relieving them for washroom breaks. There are opportunities for overtime but often only if manufacturing is behind.

Job safety and alternation is important at CPK, but if many people call-in sick, you will likely remain on one job for more than one rotation, or the entire day which can be strenuous depending on the task. The work is monotonous but easy to learn and certainly manageable once you become used to it. I enjoyed the company of everyone who worked there and they were supportive and engaging.
Pros
Decent pay, on-job training and predictable schedule
Cons
Strenuous, sometimes heavy and fast-paced work without time for error

I worked here through temporary agency and I had a decent time and got a long good with co-workers and supervisors. I would have returned to CPK directly with the company but I didn't find good enough reasons to stay.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Low Wage

I’ve worked at Cpk for almost three years now. I thought it was okay when I joined but in all reality it’s a terrible place to work. You’ll be making below the poverty line amount of money until you’ve put in 7 years of being a full time employee(16.20 starting 16.20 once full time and a dollar raise every year for a year anniversary of being full time up to a maximum of 23.20$ a hour at full rate), And who knows when you’ll become full time they say 8 months until you’re eligible. as a tpt you call in sick, come to work late, or do anything they could view as bad behaviour and add another year into your waiting time for being hired. They’ll fire you for no reason and there’s a lot of corruption from mangement and the supervisors. Example, the afternoon shift superintendent is dating a line worker. The human recourses department will make no accommodations for anyone. Example, there was a full time employee on the afternoon shift who was having a baby and wanted a week off to spend with his wife and new born. HR told him he had to bring in proof of birth or they would count his PERVIOISLY APPROVED leave of absence as his emergency days (you only get ten a year). Or another example a employee on day shift had to bring in proof of her deceased father to get only three days off of work for his funeral service. And another example a employee on the afternoon shift had talked to a couple supervisors and got the okay to possible come in late once or twice a month to accommodate being a student while working full time. This employee the. Took the information to the hr department where - more...
Pros
Some of the line workers are okay but there’s plenty of others that are mentally unstable, Uttering death threats
Cons
48 hours a week mandatory very small amount of time off weak union twisted management

This is a good job, thats what I thought when I started. I was a TPT (Temporary Part time worker) for two years without getting hired. So prepare for that to happen at any time. I've seen people hired on after a month, four months, ten months, three years. It all depends on whether management is willing to fork out the money to provide the proper amount of employees for the jobs. I liked working for the people on the floor, the people doing the dirty work every day, who see how amazingly hard everyone works all day and recognize how hard the jobs can be. You will never be appreciated by management, HR, or any of the bosses because there is such a tree of people who are all answering to higher people and dont want to lose their jobs. This place hasn't changed over the last four years, in fact, its gotten worse. I worked hard six days a week for four years, been injured and on light duty four times due to the management cutting more and more positions to save money and make their bonuses. They ignore safety concerns that cost them too much money and focus on how they APPEAR to the auditors that come every year.
Pros
decent money, benefits, lots of overtime available, if you work your tail off management might get pizza for your dept.
Cons
mandatory overtime, you're only a number to management, they cut jobs and pile the extra workload on the rest of us

CPK is a great job to have, hours were consistent and pay is very good. its a hard job due to moving line work. injection moulding wasn't the most entertaining job although still very fun and interactive job with the press and robots
