Very poorly managed company
Welder (Current Employee) – Orillia, ON – 2 May 2019
Kubota Materials is a company that aims to achieve a non-toxic work environment, but the fab supervisor does exactly the opposite, and human resources favours the supervisor over the worker.
You do not move up with the company unless you're friends with the supervisor.
The equipment is very poorly maintained, and the workers are blamed/written up for things caused by the company's negligence.
The shift rotation is bi-weekly from days, to nights, then afternoons.
Training is inadequate, as is the overall experience the company is willing to offer.
I would not recommend Kubota to anyone who is serious about progressing in the welding trade.
The lead hands are reluctant to help with any concerns, or lack the knowledge to answer questions sufficiently.
Kubota Materials is a workplace full of favouritism, and work expectations without understanding why certain demands are not met, despite them not being the workers fault.
The supervisor threatens to move employees to different departments, with pay cuts.
Toxic work environment, blatant discrimination/favouritism
