Shifting work environment
Wiring Technician (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 29 May 2018
The typical day is 7 to 330, often overtime is available until 5. The day starts with a new job or continuing an existing one. Job types and sizes varied greatly, there was a lot of exposure to new and different types of equipment and designs.
I learned a lot about how the control panel sector operates, from design to delivery. The preparation and process involved in proper panel construction. Constantly shifting work environment from incoming and outgoing projects helped me hone my organization.
The employees all get along, there's definitely a sense of brotherhood or team to the workplace. There's an unspoken divide between the production and engineering/management. Inconsistent management, during my term, I had 3 different direct supervisors. However, they do offer extensive training to entry level employees.
The hardest part of the job was the disorganized stock system, and the hot dusty work environment. While the most enjoyable parts of the job were the the casual interactions between coworkers, and the interesting panel designs and components.
Hot and dusty, disorganized
