Fun place to work, but no job security
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB8 January 2019
Very much enjoyed working here for the short time I was employed by this company. Staff and customers were very friendly and a joy to work with. After just about a year of working there, I was let go "without cause". Still not sure why but seeing as I was the Receptionist I was under the impression that my position was secure. After, I had learned that this has happened in the past with others who were let go for no apparent reason. I was very disappointed and since then I have had trouble finding full-time employment again. I was forced to move back home with family and take my daughter out of daycare due to this unforeseen event.
Great staff and customers, semi heavy workload.

Not a good work environment due to the lack of man management skills demonstrated by the plant manager.
Door Shop (Former Employee) –  Amherst, NS20 October 2019
I worked for this company for 15 years. This was an awesome company to work for until we received a new plant manager who did not take the time to learn about his employees. We had a new plant manager after the previous plant manager retired. This plant supervisor was hired to build doors in the door shop. He wasn't even properly trained in this job when our plant supervisor retired. He volunteered to do the supervisors job at the same rate of pay as he was getting for building doors. He proceeded to get his druggie friends hired, and made the manager believe he could take a lot of pressure off of him. As a result of his manipulations, he caused the removal of 5 employees who didn't see eye to eye with what he was doing. We were long term employees who would do whatever needed to be done to get the jobs done. Our only problem was we didn't agree with the way he favoured his friends over everyone else. The plant manager believed him over the 5 of us. Shortly after moving the operation from Amherst to Moncton, the plant manager discovered the truth , but we had already been terminated.
