Fast paced but rewarding workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall a fast-paced environment. The culture initiatives used to be lacking, however, this has improved in recent years. Salary is competitive and there is a lot of room for growth.

Decent Place to Work

The company takes safety very seriously. Compensation and benefits are excellent. The people (colleagues, managers) are very respectful and helpful. The work itself is quite interesting. The only drawback is that it seems understaffed which means everything becomes extremely rushed when deadlines approach.

Constant Learning Environment, Constant Oppurtunity

At Kinectrics, you will find that you are always being presented with new challenges and tasks. The company is very welcoming to trying new ideas of individuals and heavily supports ingenuity and safe problem solving practices amongst individuals.

Old style Engineering Firm

Standard old style workplace. Everyone has a cubicle to work in and the are separate rooms for meetings. Everyone I dealt with was nice and the environment was fairly good. They operate on flex hours and are pretty lenient so long as the work gets done well.

Very stressful environment. Very good benefits, Unionized and have Pension benefit plan. Stay away if you want 8 to 5 job or want to avoid stress in life.

Great salary and benefits but poor work/life balance

Was a great place to work. Salary and benefits were great but the work life balance was poor. Many long days and weekends needed to get the job done. Micro-management from executive didn't allow for a transformation.

Loved working with my team

You learn how everyone works differently. I was exposed to how all the departments functioned. It was usually busy most of the time which I loved the most out of it.

A very positive environment and team mates that promote growth. Interesting industry and fast paced.

Had an incredible experience to work for this company.My job Responsibilities included previously done tasks like, requesting a quote from vendor, completing received quote and sending for project lead’s approval. Once the quote was approved by the project leader, part of my duties was to place purchase orders with supplier, calling suppliers to follow up on the delivery date and recording notes in holdbacks of every call made. In addition to this, once the parts were received, I prepared incoming Inspection documents for inspector to review. I also updated and presented Dashboards for all project managers that included details of the project like total budget, remaining budget on the project, cost for labor and material, commitments, delivery date from supplier and delivery date to clients. Moreover, I processed expenses of entire department staff through Concur Expenses. My duties required continuous communication with customers and project managers in order ensure tasks were completed in timely mannerThe organization culture was informal, friendly and supportive. The company makes sure that there is an upcoming event every other month so the entire Kinectrics team has something to look forward to. They promote suggestions from different departments and within the department from all level of workers to make sure employees have a fun and productive work environment. The most difficult part of the job was that we would get quotes any time and almost every order was rush and had to be placed immediately so I had to stay after work to make sure the task is completed. Everything -

Excellent employer for highly-qualified technical people

Kinectrics will provide a wonderful environment for qualified engineers, scientists and technologists in the power generation to use their technical skills to the max.

Pay and benefits are top-notch as well. On the downside the workloads in some areas tend to be quite heavy which can affect work / life balance. Some areas of management could also be more organized.

Cons

Heavy workload in some areas, Dealing with many different personalities and temperaments

Good Pay and Benefits, 0 Advancement

Great place to work if you are starting out. Moving up is very difficult. Takes a lot to advance up but if you get there then you are set for life and do not need to worry.
