Very poorly managed company
Welder (Current Employee) –  Orillia, ON2 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.
Pros
Paid breaks
Cons
Toxic work environment, blatant discrimination/favouritism

Not for everyone
Foundry worker (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ON7 February 2019
You have to be willing to work days, afternoon and night shift. It’s a very intense work environment with not a lot of room for error. Like I said it’s not for everyone

Ok place to work
Inspector (Current Employee) –  Orillia, ON18 August 2018
Kubota is not the greatest place to work. Unfortunately management seem to focus more on discipline than on the quality of the work that is being performed.

The money is okay if you are not a skilled person, for a trades person I would say it is sightly below average.
Pros
Lots of overtime.
Cons
Bad work environment.
