Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON24 March 2019
Of all the places I’ve worked, this place has to be the single biggest dumpster fire I’ve ever seen. Turn over is rediculous. Management has little to no regard for the employees.
Pros
Getting a better job
Cons
Didn’t leave soon enough

They treat their employees well and provide good benefits for full time employees. Strict on scheduling but that's the case for all factory work. Product quality is very high.

A productive and great place to learn new things.
Assistant Lead Hand (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON29 August 2018
I’ve had the pleasure to be able to learn a lot at Guelph Manufacturing Group.
I’ve learnt a lot about robotic welding, and how how to fix and replace things on weld fixtures.
I’m able to pick up a welder and mig weld with confidence.
I enjoy the people with whom I work and I’m always laughing at some point during the day.
We all work very hard and often wear more than one hat which can become frustrating as we’re not compensated as we should be.
The management is pleasant at GMG and I enjoy my job and learning new things everyday, I feel as though we deserve a higher wage for what we do.

Another horrific company
Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON6 January 2018
The jobs no matter where you work are repetitive you can't wait for your shift to end. Supervisors will not stand up for you and are a lot of times belligerent The owners are only interested in lining their pockets and care nothing about their employees, this is reflected in the pay(raises are a joke) and benefits(which is also a joke) there is no future there. The people who are there are desperate for a job and because they see the futility of their lives become bitter and are hostile towards you, this is especially true on the day shift. The owners are only about increasing their personal wealth and in the end you mean nothing to them. You will die broke!
Pros
You get some money
Cons
Terrible pay, benefits, and environment

Not a nice place to work for
Tool and Die Maker (Former Employee) –  39 Royal Road7 July 2017
Is not a company I would recommend to anybody.
At the end of the day upper management has no respect for there employees.
In all my years this company by far was the worst company I ever worked for.
Out of ten I give them a two.

Pros
Overtime pay
Cons
Being micro managed

productive and fast
Assembly Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON2 December 2015
Working in a factory it is going to be fast paced, sometimes you must work alone and inspect parts to go out. You must also fix your own machine if it breaks down unless maintanence is required.
