Productive, fun, friendly, and ambitious workplace
Process Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Milpitas, CA8 September 2018
The day is filled with an organized structure of tasks to complete. Many samples are tested and reports are written. I learned many technical skills, such as analyzing samples with an scanning electron microscope or EDX. Alongside, I greatly developed my soft skills, such as cooperation, teamwork, and leadership. The management was very helpful and well-structured, making it a very enjoyable internship experience. The workplace culture is extremely friendly, making it very easy to seek for help when needed. The hardest part of the job was to complete all of the deadlines and distribute my time wisely, as there were many tasks assigned throughout my internship. The most enjoyable part of the job was to work with a variety of people, while learning from them.

Solar Panel Quality Inspection (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON29 March 2018
Work was easy and mind numbing but the people made it fun to work there. We got shut down a few months after they opened a new facility in mexico. Upper management kept stressing they weren't outsourcing but did little to make it appear otherwise.

Still stuck in its Contract EMS roots
Software Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON11 August 2017
Flex is trying to reinvent itself as an R&D company, but its organizational structures, internal policies, compensation and flexibility are still stuck in the manufacturing razor-thin profit margin mindset. Pay is on the low side of industry average and benefits/morale are mediocre due to the quarter-by-quarter, cut costs at any costs mentality. Entire offices/sites/departments are liquidated by management fiat, so it's not a great place to plan a long-term career.

Full-time, great hours, good pay, friendly people, easy job
Final Inspection and Sun Simulator Operator (Former Employee) –  Newmarket, ON15 May 2017
Lots of tasks to be done, 650 solar panel targets per shift,
12 hour shifts, quality checks, power level checks, shipping and receiving.

The hardest part of the job was when we had to wear smocks, hairnets, and face masks even in the summer time.

The most enjoyable part was advancing past the 650 target and trying to break a record for most solar panels with best quality.

After the first 6 months I got hired on full time.
Pros
Friendly environment, easy jobs, day goes by fast, 3 and 4 day weekends every week
Cons
Cleaning the solar panels, hot atmosphere, breaks are too short, company moved to Mexico
