QA Inspector (Current Employee) –  Princeton, ON19 September 2018
Great manager in my department, I feel valued and appreciated every day. Team effort in the department, everybody's suggestions are considered.
There are areas that need improvement but management is open to new ideas.
Coworkers are great, easy to work with and willing to work with you.
Environment is dirty but it's to be expected, house keeping could be better in certain areas.
Pros
Social club, golf, bbq's, pizza days. Family and employee xmas parties and picnics
Cons
No pension, you have to pay for 50% of your benefits after 6 months then they pay after 1 year.

Pleasant place to work.
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON17 September 2018
I have very few complaints about working here. Most co-workers are great, and they pay you your worth. A thought to consider when reading the negative posts, is that if it is such a horrendous place, why still a current employee? And as far as favoritism goes, it depends on what you consider to be favoritism. If a hard worker who always works overtime and gives it their all, is considered to be a favorite over someone who hardly does anything, misses alot of time and is incapable of working without constant guidance....then call it what you want. It is overall a great place to work, both in my opinion and the opinion of many other long time employees. Don't pass judgement, soley based on the negative opinion of a few unhappy employees.

Worst Place Stay away
General Labourer (Current Employee) –  Princeton, ON8 August 2018
Surprise still in business, management is incompetent can't pay their suppliers, jobs are always late and quality is in the toilet. If you enjoy working in dirty , noisey back stabbing environment this is it. No structure wrong people in charge. Never know if you are going to show up and doors be locked. Pay is slightly above minimum and no benefit for a year. Stay away. Social committee that you pay for all the event and BBQ. Other posts on here are from either management or family.

None

Great place to work and advance your career
Machining Group (Current Employee) –  Princeton, ON13 June 2018
I have been an employee of JGW Machine for the past 8 years and I can honestly say it is a great place to work.

What I like the best about JGW Machine is I get to work on something new every day. There is also a ton of room for advancement if you arrea hard working individual that expresses your want to advance your career to your manager.

The employees at this facility are very friendly and fun to work with. There is a social club that hosts BBQ's and many family friendly events throughout the year.

I would highly recommend JGW Machine to anyone looking for a promising career in the manufacturing industry.
Pros
Social Club, Benefits, friendly work environment, variety of work and opportunity to learn.

Opportunity to advance
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) –  Princeton, ON13 June 2018
I started as a general Labourer for JGW Machine over 40 years ago and have worked in every department and assumed many job titles. Onsite training allows ample opportunity to advance, if additional offsite education is required, JGW Machine provides tuition refunds on approved programs that are successfully completed.
Pros
Social Club activities including a golf touranment and family oriented events
