Very high expectations with limited resources and support from management
Auditor (Former Employee) –  Canada3 April 2019
Management take on too many projects with a small department and limited resources thus delivering less quality work. Management also disrespectful and yell at staff. No team spirit and everybody work in silos within departments and between departments. IT department too slow in fixing problems or at times not able to fix at all. No value for employees personal life e.g not flexible with work hours. If you come in early they still expect you to stay till after 5.
Pros
Nice office building in downtown
Cons
Long hours. No work life balance. Unsupportive management.

dommage
Gestionnaire (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC26 March 2018
J'y ai travaillé pendant quelques années et depuis le début j'ai trouvé la culture d'entreprise malsaine. Tous les départements, travaillent chacun pour soi. Il n'y pas de volonté de travailler en équipe. Des employés avec beaucoup d'ancienneté font ce qu'ils veulent sans qu'ils aient des sanctions. Dommage, c'était près de chez moi.
Pros
proximité
Cons
esprit d'équipe absente

Was an Excellent company
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Long Sault, ON31 January 2018
Company was good to work for . Only reason for leaving after 22 years employed there was because they closed there doors and moved else where. It was a unionized company. You went in and did your 12 hour shift and then went home.

Productive and work invironment is very good
Knitter/machine operator (knitting machines) (Former Employee) –  725 Montee de Liesse, Ville St. Laurent16 May 2013
A typical day at work starts off with me checking the papers (job order) in the machine and the yarn if it's in good condition. Then the fabric inside the machine if there are defects like holes and line defects caused by broken needles, double yarn, oil spots on the fabric, check the lock of the fabric inside the machine and the door lock. I learn how to tie the yarn, changing needles when it makes defects like holes and lines.cleaning the back of the machine the fans, the yarns the top of the machines and the inside. about my co worker we work as a team before my shift is finished I will clean the machine and put the yarn for the next shift. The hardest part of the job is by replacing the yarn especially when its heavy. The most enjoyable part, when the machine is running good no defects, no full down cause by broken yarn it's relaxing.

Pros
The company gives bonuses and benefits
Cons
Hot condition during summer time.
