Lead Hand (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 December 2017
Working an ice River Springs has been extremely steady for me. Lots of opportunity for overtime. During the summer time there is not a good opportunity for vacation time seeing as those are the busy hours.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Shelburne, ON – 9 February 2016
hire you on and entice you with larger salary and benefits, then 8 months later lay you off permanently.Management treats staff poorly if your not a woman in menopause don't bother they all hate men and discriminate to absurd proportions
Production line worker (Former Employee) – Feversham – 25 June 2015
The machines consistently broke down, and we were moved to other work areas. The building is dark and closed off with no link to outside world except on break. You work 12 hour shifts, so once you go home your too tired to do anything else. I learned that machines are hard to operate and take a lot of energy. You don't get to see your co-workers unless you were on break and most hated being there. The hardest part of the job was wheeling giant bins of parts into the machines. The most enjoyable was being able to see outside after being stuck inside for so long.
Labourer-Manufacturing (Former Employee) – Grafton, ON – 4 June 2014
Operated packaging unit and wrapper, also operated capping and labeling unit. Co-workers and management where insightful and helpful. The most difficult part of the job adjusting to continental shifts.
Bundle Operator (Former Employee) – Shelburne, ON – 23 October 2013
Besides the half decent wage for the location of the job the H&S factor was not as important priority as it should have been. The other employees were good to work with but he management wasn't as good at teaching skills and offering help/advice when needed. Regular meetings held on H&S but PPE was not as sufficient as desired. Doing the bundles was a demanding job as it was time sensitive and if you were trying to be careful you could easily fall behind. The sorting was not bad and the company of fellow employees made it enjoyable.
