It somewhat pays the bills

Fast-paced environment, easy work. Management needs major improvement. Minimal incentives, high demand. Equipment extremely outdated/not cared for. High turn-around. Staff generally pleasant.

Too many to list

Look Elsewhere
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON26 July 2019
They do not adhere to their own safety policies and practices, if you protest an unsafe work environment you will be fired. Temps and contracts are treated as subhuman. All of their equipment is outdated and rarely in running condition. The building is falling apart. Management is non-existent and HR is just there to collect their 6 figure salary, supervisors demean and degrade as they see fit with no repercussions

Not safety forward and not trustworthy
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON2 July 2019
Many accidents occur and the major ones are never dealt with properly or at all.
Favortism at its finest, if you aren't a "friend" you'll go nowhere.
If you aren't the preferred race on a shift you are treated as stupid and useless no matter how long you've been there.

Poor management, and lack of respect for staff
Set up line mechanic (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON24 June 2019
I worked there without any major complaints on my work or productivity till a senior staff member who has been there 20 plus years and known to have anger issues threatened and berated me on floor. Then I filed my complaint with the head engineer, I was promptly offered a severance package to leave without reason the next working day.
Pros
Most of the production workers are great
Cons
Don’t voice your concerns or complain about management

Not worth working at CSR
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON4 September 2018
Not worth working with the company who isn't appreciated your hard work. I was not happy with the company. It is not well organized and also, poor leadership. Not enough job for the employee and sent most of them home.
Pros
Some friendly employee
Cons
Not enough work

Fast-paced; great people; tough culture
Assembler/Packager (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON9 August 2018
So much variety in the job, every day is different. Planning is the pits - never seem to be able to tell what's going to happen tomorrow, let alone next week. Last minute shortages of work and OT happen all the time. Work is pretty interesting, management and culture terrible. Not a lot of care for people, lots of disrespect, can be cut throat if you don't make the right connections. It's definitely not the environment for everyone - you need to be thick-skinned.
Pros
Good hours
Cons
Disrespectful supervisors / managers

OK place to work if you need a job and cant find something else
Machinery Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON22 May 2018
The company has grown beyond capabilities and means. When i started there it was a smaller company where people felt like they mattered. The new take on employees is completely different and the expectations on ppl is towork like animals and to be treated as a number. The best way to describe the work environment as it stands now is make prefection using old beat up machinery and inadiquite components.

Great Starting Postion
Analytical Chemist (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON28 January 2018
The company is small, not much room for advancement but a great place to get some experience in the workforce.

CSR cosmetic solutions is understaffed. This leads to semi regular overtime that is essentially required to get everything done.

your day starts at 8a.m and ends at 5p.m. The hardest part is the little details that clients do fuss about the most.
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON23 September 2015
There are no half days during fall to spring season. The days starts at 8:00a.m to 5a.m,. It is a fast paced environment and you never work on the same thing the whole day. You switch positions on the line as the day goes by thereby reducing fatigue and boredom form doing the same thing the whole entire day.Just like any big company, there is always going to be squabbles at any given time and end up coming to a solution.Summer time is the best, you end work at 1:30p.m after staring your day 7.30a.m. Overally it is a fun palceto be especially if you are so into make up and want to learn what happens behind the scenes.
