Not a good place to go full time at
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 December 2016
Working at Gentek was not in my opinion the best time that i could think back on, Heavy lifting , Short brakes No staff Holiday party's

They basically hire a few full time staff then hire temps when the workload calls for more hands on deck, For this reason the Pay was Low and the work hours hard.

No Employer loyalty: The man in charge did not see the employees as a valuable resource and hence did not pay well or take hands on with them to improve work relations.
Pros
Indoors in winter and Summer
Cons
Hard lifting, Low pay, No benefits
