Above average pay at a cost.
MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 March 2019
My supervisor was amazing when it came to advancement, and scheduling. They restructured management, and it all went downhill pretty fast. They expect You to fulfill their commitments with no concern to your home life. Most times they would change your schedule without a weeks notice. It is written in the contract with the Association, they are allowed to. This agreement is based out of the 80's. The Association is meant to protect You from the 80's mentality of management, but with no real knowledge of how to go about it. If you like being harassed by management about numbers, this is the place for you.
Pros
Used to have free luncheons once or twice a month, but has since diminished
Cons
Management expect miracles, machines run 24/7 with no PM. Lots of downtime.
