Worst training ever. Be ready to teach yourself. You are immediately expected to keep up with high speed and quality. there are people who have been working there for over 6 months & still have not gotten their benefits, Work boots allowance. Many cruel team leaders who are unable to keep their personal opinions separate from their job. Leaders, supervisors & management partake in unprofessional gossip and bullying. They laugh and make fun of assemblers. Mechanics do not follow rules.
It is hard learning who is in charge because everyone is the boss.

Team leaders don't lead. They do however give employees they personally don't like the worst jobs repeatedly and cruel attitude such as outright ignoring the person, dirty looks and rolling their eyes at them when the employee has a work question. They even go as far as just acting as if the person does not exist when they say hello. The god complex is overwhelming.

On the other hand, there are so many great people to work with.

If you can be humble with thick skin while balancing it with not allowing yourself to be spoken to like a useless person (and it will happen often), hold your head up but not too high, you can survive the large waves and eventually drift. As any place as pros and cons. You can be part of the cons and help the best parts to grow and outshine the worst.

Working here is harder than the work itself.

You get sent home early often. Overtime is on seniority not rotation. as you may only get 30 hrs one week while others get 50 hrs. It's just how it is and you must learn to accept it.

Expect you to work very fast to produce a certain amount of items per hour when it's not possible. Like how is it logical to have so many rejected items and spend so much time getting that sorted out? There's a rude mechanic that tells you to do it faster while it's impossible to do it properly at that kind of speed. Speed over quality product. Agency sends you home whenever they like. Instead of two 15 min break and 30 min lunch, you get 2 10 min breaks and 20 min lunch.

Rotating positions (sitting and standing)

I got a job there as a temp and left the place in tears at the end of the night, was not trained, yelled at and embarrassed if I made a mistake, they don’t care for your safety, they over work you and will yell at you if you come up with your own way of doing your job that makes you comfortable. They treat their new employees terribly and it’s just not worth 14 an hour to feel so badly about yourself.

This company is terrible and does so many illegal things. I worked here for a few weeks but my husband has been there for about a year. In the time that I worked there I witnessed terrible things. All they care about is money over your safety. They over work you, they complain if you are sick and have to call in. They will fire you if you are too slow (first day to week) They hire people and do not bother to train. They will fire you if you voice concerns or problems. The management that is higher up (team leads, mechanics etc) are so disrespectful and will do anything to push you (swear at you, embarrass you) but are never at fault. Anyone who is higher than the typical “line workers” are favourited and get special privileges. They make people who are not qualified for certain things do jobs (mechanic, quality control) You are supposed to get 10 minute breaks but only really get 5 mins or less because of the time it takes to get re dressed (smock, gloves, goggles). Management will tell you to go home early but then the next day will have you written up. If you get hurt, they will tell you to lie about it in the incident report. They will intimidate you, take advantage of you and break you down as a human being. THIS COMPANY NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN. The things they do to their employees is sickening, repulsive and straight up criminal.

Great plant workers - really dedicated to the company. Many long term employees who are there to help new people. A strong employer who has desires to grow much more.

It’s easy to get in, have a straight shift, doing easy work that’s always rotating.
The biggest problems are with bullying and gossiping. New management is trying to change things and responds to complaints.

Not all departments have the same culture or stress levels. There are many, many great people there, despite the issues with some.

Could be the best place to work. But no upward mobility, no pay increases even if you perform amazingly.
Company is expanding hopefully this will mean good changes are coming.
Pros
People
Cons
Management and pay increase or lack of them

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

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.

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 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

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

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.

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.

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.
