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

Underachieving company
Sales (Former Employee) –  Orillia, ON11 June 2019
This company has great products, great customers but very poorly managed. Salary is slightly on the low side but pension and benefits (IF you can get the same deal as current employees) are great.

It will be a frustrating experience working here as this company has so much potential but still underachieving. Some managers are not competent enough and that leads to promising employees leaving. The Japanese managers may not even understand what’s going on due to language barrier but they still insist on managing this company on a daily basis. Not sure if English is their only weakness but it’s simply not working..

Bottom line, if welding and metallurgy is your type of thing, this company has very good projects/products for your experience. Other than that you may have a better employment somewhere else.

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
