Job Culture
Waves of fast paced stressful "panic mode" breakdowns followed by slow paced PM and scheduled maintenance. Free coffee and reward lunches
A typical workday started with a shift handover. Only breakdowns were handed over, all work started by a technician would be completed by the same technician. Heavy equipment redundancy allowed many things to remain non-critical while down.

I learned to improve my troubleshooting and problem solving skills. Picked up the basics for arc and MIG welding, plasma cutting and Milling and lathe operation, not usually afforded to my trade. Improved and refined my ability to navigate, troubleshoot and isolate electrical problems remotely through the online PLC program and use it as a powerful troubleshooting tool.


Management was past its prime. Most were approaching or over retirement age. This leads to an "old boys club" mentality where newcomers of a younger generation are not welcome or respected. Their perspectives and ways of doing things are outdated an considered unacceptable in the modern work place. Heave rift between production and maintenance in both management and on the floor.


Work culture is an "Old boys club" culture, with an emphasis on lip service and bare minimum safety compliance. Production over safety. Reprimanded heavily if injured or damaged equipment, rewarded for unsafe behaviour if it minimized downtime with no incident. Aging workforce with a tendency to hire in the 50+ age group perpetuates this culture with little hope of change, and no consideration for future generations, or the plant's future.


The hardest part of the job is dealing with the stress of a tough work environment. Dangerous, dirty, noisy, extremely cold, extremely hot and working

Decent work atmosphere
Management enjoys micromanaging, and be in complete control of literally every step taken.

Otherwise, the place isn't too bad, lots of down time, but when its busy its busy.

Good place to work and the shifts are flexible
Good place to work, shifts are flexible and change as needed. time off or over is available when wanted.

The meek and weak don't last long here and are moved on and out.


Hugh peaks working here so far, good wage, paid schooling, training accounts, free PPE, full benefits (which so far i have never used). Monthly training courses. OEM training.


Good leadership and direction from management.

Belle culture d'entreprise
Belles possibilités d'avancement, salaires compétitifs, environnement de travail stimulant; mais culture encore éloignée de la diversité.

Good Steady Job- Cannot Hire Proper Management
I like the job, locations, ok wage but the nepotism is rampant. HR is lazy and non existent leaving the departments to continue to hire awful management and supervisors. Just because you have a piece of paper on the wall doesn't mean you have the appropriate people skills, leadership skills or even basic common sense to do the job. Disappointing.
Pros
Mon-Fri, Steady Work
Cons
Awful Management, exposed to elements

Difficult for junior drivers
Fun and challenging job but some locations need improvement to work culture. It can be tough on drivers with the flexible schedules and hours, especially those with families. During peak season there is no work/life balance. Hard to get hours during the winter months.
Pros
Pay, benefits, pension plan
Cons
Scheduling, winter months

Techincal Service Coordinator
A typical day consists of testing concrete trucks either at the plant or at the job site. The testing itself is quite simple and easy to learn. The people I met here in terms of drivers and supervisor are very friendly and easy to get along with. The only negative I had with this job were the hours that were required on a weekly basis. For example a normal week would consist of 50-60hrs a week, and although we were compensated with overtime its tough to maintain a balance between work and personal life.
Pros
Working outside
Cons
Long hours

Generally good people, some issues at the top
Very good company to work for; lots of good people work there. Senior management can be pretty ruthless at times however. All control of this company has moved the the US.
