Labourer in Walkerton, ON
good working environment within the company, poor working conditions in many areas and the company's managers do not think about their workers and the mediocre salary compared to their other companies.
Class 5 Coil Winder in Guelph, ON
Poor representation from the employee's association, amiable managers were under too much pressure to discipline, the not-so amiable managers were too eager to discipline unfairly and for little or invalid reasons. It's not a good place to work for "non-favorites". HPS reported quarterly profits every quarter for the entire 8 years of my employment with them, yet they still felt the need to outsource production to their plants in Mexico and India.
TPC Winder in Walkerton, ON
Waste of time
Sweep things under the carpet instead of dealing with it. Gives your positions away underneath you. Good luck getting training it’ll take 6 months for them to even think about training.
They’re more worried about getting their products out the door rather than their employees.
Fantastic people, family-run company
Great place to work in the Guelph area. People in the office are welcoming, kind and helpful. Great to work for a Canadian, family-run company with considerable benefits and pension package.

Just A Number
If you need a paycheck, go ahead. If you want a life, HPS management cares little for that. Constant mandatory overtime leaves no room for personal issues. Management only cares about production and deadlines. Personal emergency? Too bad. Those are not allowed. However there is more than enough favoritism and bias to go around. Someone’s harassing you in any way? Don’t worry, management will ignore it and allow it to continue. I’ll never darken their doorstep again. Unless you’re desperate, I suggest you don’t either.
