Consistent work

The job at Apex is secure and consistent, with scheduled pay increases. Everyone work together as a team to build pipe products. I would recommend this place to a friend.

What a great place to work!

Expectations for productivity are reasonable. Safety is #1 on company's priority list. Factory is clean, but noisy. Hearing protection is required. The managers seem thoughtful and helpful, but they are not on the floor a lot. Supervisors tend to have favourites - too bad. The company looks for things to celebrate - like meeting a quota, or having a great week, or someone retiring, and give out incentives now and then. We have dinners provided occasionally and bar-B-Qs. The continental shift takes some getting used to but provides lots of days off to get things done around the house. I've worked a few places, but this is the best one I've experienced! A negative is the attitude of some fellow workers, but I think they haven't had much experience elsewhere and feel entitled - at least that's my impression. This place also gives annual bonuses, up to 4% in addition to your regular pay.

Great Company. Good pay.

Ipex prioritized workers safety most of the time. They offer a good salary and offer advancement to their employees. I worked there as an operator and i enjoyed my job when i was there.

Poorly ran by clueless management.

It’s surprising this plant is still running, The pay is great, benefits are good. Most employees are great to work with, unfortunately it’s ran terribly. They continue to hire management who seem to have never even had a job. Place could be easily be one of the best places to work, But management thinks they know everything and won’t take a single piece of advice from anyone. Unless you’re able to guide them to your ideas, so they can take credit, they won’t even entertain them. Bonus points if you join the managements church they keep hiring managers from

Place is a factory of environmental destruction

The place is a disorganized mess…the environmental impact is astronomical,wasted resources are typical.Air,water and wood products are routinely garbaged…chlorinated plastic is washed into drainage daily. Safety practices are non existent.

Pros

Paycheque

Cons

Nightmare environment

Lots of promises very little return

They will promise lots of training and advancement but you will quickly realize it will never happen. Managers have that I am the boss mentality no room for conversation. They are neither worried about your physical safety or you mental well being. It’s a place where production is first everything else is second.

Pros

Stable employment

Cons

Shift sucks, long hours low pay

Great company and a great team

Been working for the company for a year now and I can say this is the best place I've ever worked in. Support is everywhere as well as steering your career in the direction you want to go.

Good company, pay and benefits

IPEX Pharmacy was a good company to work for. Good pay and benefits but there are a few cons to keep in mind. The job as a line operator requires you to run 2 lines, materials must be checked to ensure proper dimensions are met on an hourly basis and must prepare your own packing materials such as wood and metal straps as well as leaving some for the next shift. If you love to work and always stay busy and multitask a lot? This is the place for you.

Pros

Friendly coworkers Good pay and benefits

Cons

Long hours Too much multitasking

No appreciation or support from Management

Pharmacy, ON plant of Ipex is in really bad condition and many things need to be improved.Management is careless and everyone in management are just working to get salary and save their self from any problem(by pointing fingers at others).No opportunity to grow in this perticular plant.Shifts are continental and they want employees to work like robots.The only thing is good salary.

Pros

Salary

Cons

Worst management, Long hours, no appreciation

Liberté et travail d'équipe

Nous ne sommes pas enchaînés aux machines. Les pauses ne sont pas chronométré, nous avons une bonne liberté sur le plancher, personne ne nous empêche d'aller manger, boire ou aller à la salle de bain à notre guise. L'ambiance sur les équipes est différente mais toujours agréable. La direction est très présente sur le plancher pour supporter les employés, ils sont très humains. L'horaire proposé peut par-contre ne pas convenir à tous. L'été lors des canicules il fait très chaud, mais la compagnie fourni gratuitement de la slush, mr.freeze et bouteille d'eau.

Pros

Slush gratuite l'été, liberté sur le plancher, avancement rapide

Cons

Chaleur l'été, travail de nuit
