Such an amazing place to work at, with even more amazing people. Very fast paced, but makes days fly by! With having such wonderful souls working with you, you couldn’t have a bad day. Everybody is always there with helping hands, they won’t see you do wrong.

Good Job, Great People
HR, TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Elora, ON8 February 2018
I spent almost 15 years at JEC. It was hard to leave. The Associates at JEC worked hard every single day; worked hard for each other and cared about the results. There are lots of opportunities for advancement there as long as you're willing to learn, and try new things. I saw lots of examples where Management, Production Leadership, HR, Health and Safety, etc were genuinely excited for Associates and celebrated the successes of Associates and teams. JEC pays well and the benefits are excellent. There was usually lots of overtime available. Shift work is hard, but you get to work beside some pretty terrific people, so that makes it easier.
Pros
Wonderful People
Cons
Shift Work, Sometimes some long days/weeks

Horrible Management
Weld Associate (Former Employee) –  Elora, ON31 December 2017
If they did an overhaul of management then a lot of people would still work there. Hours suck, management sucks, HR is a joke. They don’t train people properly, if you get a days worth of training you are lucky. The work isn’t hard, that’s the only thing I enjoyed. HR only cares about management, employees are on their own. You know a business is going down when people who have worked there 5 years and longer are leaving.
Cons

Jefferson is a good place to work.
weld associate (Current Employee) –  Elora, ON9 October 2017
Jefferson Elora is a good place to work, depending on your work ethic you will succeed. Attendance and accuracy is the main focus where production comes after and of course safety comes before all of the above. Summer months are a little laid back hourly wise where you can work 8 hour shifts with the the the chance to volunteer for the extra hour or two but it is totally up to you. spring, winter and fall are the busy months where you will need to work production saturdays which is ussally once a month. Pay is higher than most auto comapanys, great benefits, gifts, bonuses, etc. environment wise communication is poor between departments, training is poor, and a lot of family and friends work there which in my opinon should be declined but other than that I like working there and take pride in what I do.
Pros
good place to work for full time, pay is good
Cons
too many family and friends

Good place to work
Weld Associate (Current Employee) –  Elora, ON30 July 2017
Jefferson is an auto parts factory which manufactures steel parts for the frame of automobiles. We build parts primarily for the Honda Civic and CRV but also build some parts for Toyota.
This job requires 8-hour shifts on a two-week rotation of days to afternoons. There is also a straight midnight shift which is staffed entirely by individuals who have requested that shift. Day shift always starts at 6:30 am and afternoon start times depends based on whether you're in stamping or weld.
During the summer months the hours and overtime requirements are much more relaxed but between September and May expect mandatory overtime during the week as well as on Saturdays.
The hardest part at JEC is being new. New associate training especially on the floor is very poor. Depending on who you train with often makes the difference whether you can survive or not. There is NO training system enforced so new associates generally get thrown to the wolves so-to-speak.
The people around you is what makes this job more enjoyable. This place has a lot of good people that help to lighten up the daily grind. It also helps not to stress out too much about production demands and requirements. Really if you show up every day and put in your time and make an effort you're good.
The pay is above average and better than a lot of the companies in this area. Also from what I've heard, that atmosphere is generally much better than other places as well. There is also an emphasis on safety and it is a clean, air-conditioned work environment.
As per usual, it must be said that management is useless. Many
  more... of the managers display a complete lack of ability in their role. And yet they demand unquestioned loyalty and adherence to the rules and guidelines they make up. This leads many team leaders to become in essence 'yes' men. Thus experienced and qualified individuals often prefer not to apply for a promotion because they don't want to be in a position where they are not allowed input. This, in turn, leads to the fact that most of the supervisors are poorly qualified, useless as well because only those of low quality or inexperienced 'noobs' choose to apply for promotion.  less
Pros
Excellent working relationships among co-workers.
Cons
Poor management, poor supervisors, little-to-no training for new hires.

No Future
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Elora, ON21 July 2017
This company abuses the promise of hiring on by using six different temp agencies. They constantly ask for over time and even with a perfect attendance. They use you as long as you don't complain inquire about being hired on after your contract is expired.
Also make sure you keep track of your hours worked as they constantly mess up your pays.
Pros
Lots of overtime
Cons
alternating shifts, poor chance of fulltime employment

can be rewarding and challenging on a daily basis.
Stamping associate/Trainer (Current Employee) –  Elora, ON23 March 2017
could be more productive if issues were solved and not band-aided.
it is set up as a team oriented production that is usually carried by only a few on the team.
the hardest part of the job is learning the process, once you've got that the days become easier.
Pros
challenging work.
Cons
unnessessary overtime, no real team effort.
