An overall good place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you can get past the politics and mandatory overtime and shift changes on short notice, there is a lot you can learn here as an apprentice. You have to push a little to get people to open up and allow you to work on the more advanced stuff but it's doable.

The Management needs some improvement due to their wrong decisions potential and dedicated employees are also getting demotivated and leaving company as they don't see the scope of development career, management cares for the sweet speakers but in reality, they don't deserve the place. rest work is quite tedious but ok as pay is also good

No Job security

The can fire you any time when they don't have orders and hiring process is not good, at time they will hire a lot than needed and will start firing once there jobs are done.

Pay is less, enough working hours, bad management

A typical day at work is exhausting, with micromanagement from clueless management. The workplace culture is toxic, and there's no work-life balance. The hardest part is unrealistic expectations, and there's hardly anything enjoyable about the job. Avoid this place if you value your well-being.

Stressful workplace

Linamar is a company with a strong foundation, encouraging innovation, fostering teamwork, and providing competitive benefits. However, there's room for improvement in terms of managing workload pressures and optimizing decision-making processes. As an employee, my overall experience at Linamar has been positive, and with some refinements, it could become an even more exceptional workplace.

Not great working environment

Not a best place to work, if you wanna have growth. You got to push extra for everything in the job, even the easiest task in the plant are difficult to execute.

Great place to start

-Great place to start and learn.-Pay could definitely be better but not much you can do as it is their pay scale-Linamar offered training and development programs to help employees enhance their skills and advance within the company.- Good Medical, dental, and vision insurance plans were typically provided to employees and their families.-The company's culture often encouraged a performance-driven mindset. Employees were typically expected to meet high standards of productivity, quality, and efficiency in their work.-Linamar encouraged employees to identify opportunities for process improvement and contribute to making the company's operations more efficient.

Fun workplace

There were good people but work was boring. And pay was not good for living. Many people quit often and this workplace was so noisy. But management was good.

Good place to work with all people. All people are nice and fun. The task is easy and straightforward. They had given a lot of overtime for you to work

Hopefully they have improved

Haven’t worked there for nearly 10 years. But at the time, each plant was run by the plant manager, sometimes without adhering to company policies. Having worked in 4 different plants over 6 years, overall they didn’t value employees.

Only good for an apprenticeship opportunity

I did my apprenticeship here and also worked for 7years so I know the environment well. Management sucks and don't care about the people only the company. Production had to work mandatory OT on Saturday and had to take a vacation day too have it off. Next once you get licensed leave cause they will not pay you fairly. They offered me $26 an hour when I got licensed when instead when I looked around i found job in the same field with minimum $33 average and I ended up getting a job just under $40 an hour. So if you want an apprenticeship this is the place to go but not a career they don't treat you right and don't care about you and work you too the bone


Apprenticeship opportunity


Pay is unfair and everything else bad also

Great company to learn with, just remember to use them as they'll also use you. Long shifts, little under paid, but getting better. It's a good stepping point to get experience

Opportunity to learn and develop

Some management are in their positions not because of qualifications but because they have connections. Worked there a long time and feel I’m missing out on other opportunities.

Terrible Place to work

This place was a terrible place to work, the equipment is old, the managers are horrible very bias and do not appreciate their truck drivers. The company will also not pay you vacation pay without a fight. I would avoid this place at all costs.


Nice warehouse people


Equipment malfunctions, managers, an hr team that rips employees off.

Decent Company

Linamar operates roughly 21 different locations so there is a wide variations in experiences.For me, I did the walk in interview at the Center on a Wednesday and was called on the Friday for an interview on the following Monday. I did the interview with one of the shop managers and an HR representative just to learn about my work experience and expectations, then I was hired on the spot to start in 2 weeks.Once on the shop floor it is incredibly disorganized until you're found a permanent spot to work in which can also change depending on order volume. The pay is mediocre at $18.50 plus a performance incentive which can be as high as 25% extra of your pay based on the lines production, scrap and 5s (cleanliness) scores which can be a decent pay cheque IF its a high PI payout. There is also a ton of overtime usually which is mandatory which you agree by signing the excess work hours waiver during the orientation.Benefits are great which start on day 1 and continued to be increased including a $700 healthcare account to cover what the benefits don't. As a machine operator I work alone as the machine does the work which I verify the dimensions and other specification throughout the shift. The work can get mundane and repetitive though I can't complain as i work at my own pace and am left alone by management since quality is good. I also appreciate roughly every month there is an event like pizza day, coffee and cookies , BBQ etc


Lot's of free/discounted perks, independent work


very repetitive and mundane

Do not work

They can fire you when they want without any reason. Would tell not to work there. Not a good place to work. The people will place politics and top management half of them do not know anything just because they work there from 30 years they think they are expert.

Great Job if you want to coast for the rest of your career

If you want a place where your brain can shut off and get paid, the Linamar is ideal for you. Management has no metrics to evaluate you or your colleagues, which means the bad apples remain, and you will be stuck with them.I worked with a developer who did not comitt a single line of code for an entire year. When this concern was raised, absolutely nothing changed.I could go on, but it's a waste of time. If you want to coast this is the place for you.
