Worst job in my career
Transportation Engineer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 January 2019
The perfect place to work on paper but truly a nighmare of a workplace. The managment is abusive and has no respect for the people that work there. It's truly the worst working experience that I have ever had.
Pros
Salary was fair
Cons
Poor culture, stingy vacation days

very clique-ey
anonymous (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON27 November 2018
If you suck up to the boss you are golden. Otherwise it is irrelevant how hard you work or how much your customers love you.
If one of the "Favourite" people doesn't like you, you are screwed.
Manager is stupid...unable to do simple math or think logically.
You get 4 weeks vacation after 12 yrs ! Terrible.
In my department, in less than 10 years, over 60 people have come and gone. Management is either unaware or doesn't care about the ridiculously high staff turnover.
Pros
almost non-existent
Cons
too many to list

Work hard/Play Hard
Technical Support Representative (Current Employee) –  British Columbia4 July 2018
I've worked with the IKO organization for 8 years and all my hard work has paid off. Advancements, Increases, respect.. all of it. Anyone who says they weren't compensated fairly or treated with respect has a skewed view of their ability level. IKO is very good at promoting within, but not for those who don't stick it out, pay their dues and learn the role they're hired for. Benefits, dental and vacation are all fair. If you're looking for a career, this is the place.
Pros
Growth opportunity, advancement.
Cons
Not many.

Fun workplace with a very great atmosphere
Reliability Engineering Intern (CO-OP Internship) (Former Employee) –  Madoc, ON4 April 2017
A typical workday consists in coming at 6AM and leaving at 2:30 PM with a 30 minute lunch break. Everyone in the office as well as all the mechanics are great. The hardest part of the job is to get used to the noise and dust. The most enjoyable part was to hang around with the coworkers.
Pros
Great office staff and great mechanics, great atmosphere, interns and employees have access to the company house
Cons
Early hours, noise, dust

shrug your shoulders and say "oh well, that's the way it's always been"
Customer Demand Planner (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 August 2016
Chock full of uncooperative managers who would rather make their own job easier than work as a team to accomplish something to better the company and its customers. Virtually no communication between departments, and sometimes even within departments. Suggested improvements are met with, "Yes we know that would make things better but the departments involved aren't willing to change." Hiring is based on IQ-type test with no weight given to the ability to work with other people. The owners are great people with a strong vision. Unfortunately the management team below them doesn't seem to be on the same page. All in all a very frustrating place to work.
Pros
nice barbecue every June, free ice cream and a t-shirt
Cons
lack of teamwork

No respect given
Utility Labourer (Former Employee) –  Madoc, ON17 March 2016
This is not a good place to work. The pay is bad, the management is bad but at least your co-workers are ok. They have some decent foremen, but the upper management just will not listen or assist with anything. To receive needed things for your job, it is almost impossible to get anywhere. This is a last resort job.
Pros
it's a job
Cons
unhealthy, poor pay, poor management

Don't waste your time and stay away from this company.
supervisor (Former Employee) –  Ashcroft, BC22 January 2016
Very toxic place to work. As a supervisor you will have almost no input into running your department or crew. The manager will override almost every decision you will make and totally undermine your whole position. The production superintendent is a real problem. Culture of the division is the worst I have ever been exposed to and the overall company doesn't seem much better. The staff turnover except for the problem people is huge. Certain union people will actively work to get you fired because there is a huge control issue in the division over who is going to run the division and the manager is working with the union people to facilitate this. There are far better places and companies to work for. Don't waste your time.
Pros
Not many other than average salary and benefits
Cons
Very poor management and company culture
