Good Company for New Inexperienced Employees
I’d say it’s a good company to start with if you have no experience, as it was for me. I was able to grow quickly and work my way up to a senior position role. However, it become stagnant from there. Supervisors/ Team lead are amazing and supportive. Flexible hours, should you have appointments during the day. But may require overtime if the job isn’t finished.

Great People, Horrible Upper Management
Your coworkers are great people as are some of supervisors and direct manager are nice people. It’s a fairly relaxed workplace(plant) you don’t have to think about anything once you go home. You’ll work on a wide range of products that test your skill and can be quite interesting to tell to friends and family. Upper management is horrible starting with the top, the CEO is genuinely not a good person. He doesn’t care at all about his employees and probably sees them as “human capital” rather then people with lives and family’s. There is a clear division of treatment between office and plant workers with office workers getting preferential treatment and special privileges. Wage increases are far and few between, they’ll just use low profits as a reason and delay it till your next review which will probably have the same outcome. Bonuses/profit sharing is also the same either small or non existent.

Prepare to be held back and underpaid for what you do.
Evans Consoles seemed great at first and a very professional company. However the further you work your way closer to the brains of the company and the front office you realize Evans is a company full of people who have worked there for decades and have been held back skills wise and greatly underpaid in doing so. Majority of the managers are so out of their depth and are kept in their roles because they are yes men/ women and the CFO and CEO are just happy they can get away with paying them a lower salary as these workers don’t realize what they are worth in another company. Salaries have no overtime worked in to them and the company is often so busy you are doing upwards of 10-12 hour days to keep up with the schedule. If you don’t and can’t keep up with the schedule you are looked at like you are unworthy. In some instances work contracts are changed to force people into taking a lower salary and to cut the OT costs. In one instance this type of move completely decimated the millwork design team and created the loss of a handful of incredibly skilled and motivated professionals. The CFO takes people for fools and uses intimidation tactics to try mold people into starting low and becoming one of the evans long haulers that are horribly underpaid. If you are a young professional look else where because you will be servely held back. If you are someone about to start there make sure you get what you are worth early and don’t fall for any of the hold down tactics and promises of further wage rises because there will always be an excuse why that raise can’t come.

Could have been better
Typical day started at 7 usually lasting until 4-5 pm. I felt like I was being watched if I took a break that meant I’d leave my desk. I felt like if I went home after completing my 8 hr shift that I would be seen as not being a team player. One positive I I learned a lot about control systems and met many people outside of my department who were good people. May direct manager and team liked to lead by intimidation. They’d purposely give you more work than you could complete in a day just to see how long you’d stick it out I guess. The procurement Team lead was a bully, no other way to say it. Management was complicit and chose to enable this type of behaviour within their organization. I would go home each night stressed out always feeling like I was one mistake away from not having my contract not renewed. Many nights I’d be working from home to try to catch up on all of the work I couldn’t get to during the course of my shift. I am happy to no longer be there and my mental well being has improved greatly since my tenure ended with this organization. I had high hopes for this job I felt like I gave it my best effort. I hope that they implement procedures and policies that are more fair and perhaps they will have better success in retaining workers.

Good Product - Bad Management
If you are a favourite you will do well here regardless of how good you work is. Be prepared to be micro managed but upper levels of management and have long hours with 0 recognition for work effort put in. Upper management only cares about $ figures.
