Do not work here
Breakpress laser roll deburring spot welding (Former Employee) –  Princeton, ON3 October 2018
If you want something serious looked into like Sexual harnessment. Don't both. Management don't care. He don't care. You have to pay for benefits months before you get them free.
People come for one day and don't come back. The management yell and gets in for face. The favourite ones get away with everything.
The amount of work they want you to do by not pay good I was being trained in different areas, but didn't get to stay in one spot for long.
They tell you over time is not mandatory but will harass you if you don't.
This is a joke place to work for.
And there is a lot of bad talk about everyone. I had management come to me to complain about other other management.
Emplyees are checking their pay stubs because they are afraid that they may not get paid or the door will be closed one day and no one can get in.
Pros
Some employees are great

Terrible place to work with Incompetent Management
Press Brake Operator (Former Employee) –  Princeton, ON29 September 2018
Can't believe they are still in business. Awful place to work. Training was non-existent. Management has no clue. Super favoritism in full effect. If you have a friend in management you're going to love it. If you don't, you won't. Zero organization and Zero safety.
Pros
Paid Lunch Break that's only 20 minutes
Cons
Everything else

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.

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
