Not a very good job at all - redundant, boring work while being overworked and underpayed
CSA (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 6 September 2017
The work is extremely repetitive. You're basically doing the same thing for 10 hrs a day/4 days a week. Sometimes you're scheduled on the same task for weeks or even months, so it gets really boring and mind numbing. They train you for a couple weeks in the beginning on the main tasks, but then after that if you need to be trained on something, there is very little training. You get maybe a couple hours of training if you're lucky, then you're thrown to the wolves. The schedule is very unfair, and they don't rotate the employees through the tasks. One person is on one desk for weeks or months at a time. There is very little support from coworkers and Management. You go to Management about suggestions or ideas, only to be shut down or turned away. People are very hesitant to help you when you ask for it, which is the main way to get help since there's very little training. You do so much work for such little pay. The only things good about this job are the benefits/paid sick days, and the 4 on/4 off schedule can be nice. Having 4 days off is the nice part. Otherwise, a horrible place to work.
Good benefits, paid sick time, 4 days off
Long hours, boring and redundant work, unfair scheduling, unsupportive coworkers, very little training
