Not the best place to work.
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON11 September 2019
Hot, dirty, smokey environment. Extremely poorly managed by people who don't seem to communicate with each other and have little knowledge of what's happening on the shop floor. No training for new hires you're just thrown to the wolves and learn as you go along. Many, many first day accidents. Would not recommend it to my worst enemy.

Operator (Current Employee) –  Stratford, ON30 August 2019
If I could go back in time and skip the interview I would. All the experienced managers retired, quit or were fired. Now it’s an absolute gong show every day, with the guys on the floor struggling to keep the place open amidst constant machine breakdowns and back and forth decision making. No real leadership at all.
Pros
Decent paycheque and benefits
Cons
Mandatory weekend work, terrible management, constant breakdowns, catches fire a lot

Given the chance to shine if you want it !
Current employee (Current Employee) –  Management27 July 2019
Hendrickson Springs is situated in Stratford Ontario and has the highest paying wages for employees for a manufacuring facility for 50 square kilometers.
We produce suspension springs to the tractor trailer market across the world.
Management are fair, firm and want employees to succeed, if you have a strong work ethic the this is a challenging and rewarding place to work.
An old factory mentality that is embracing the challenge to change into the future.
Pros
Hard work, rewarding if you have a strong work ethic
Cons
Dirty, Dusty, Hot Enviroment with old machinery

Labourer (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON25 September 2018
Hendrickson spring is fast paced work environment with a lot of physically demanding jobs. The time passes quickly and the straight shifts is much better than rotating shifts.

They will run it to the ground.
Millwright (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON23 August 2018
They don't give you time to do proper PM's. There is no perditive maintenance, just breakdown. Every machine is 25 years plus and they don't take care of them. You run around like a chicken with it's head cut off only to be under paid. Maintenance supervisor has too much on his plate and miro manages everyone. Would only go back if they paid 40$ an hour.
Pros
They have showers so you can clean all the oil and grease off.
Cons
Everything I just listed

Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Stratford, ON7 August 2018
New team leader every few months. The blind leading the blind. No communication at all. Do not care about the workers. The only people who seem to care or know what they are doing are the two girls in HR.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON28 January 2018
The plant is extremely dirty and inventory is not FIFO'd ISO and TS audits would be hard to pass in this facility. The Management Team continually talks about closing the plant and its not making money. It's just poorly run, poorly organized and runs like its the 1800's.
