Junior Engineer (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 26 October 2018
Manufacturing business is challenging, requires focus and co-operation within a team. Some people understand this and others don't. Those who don't will fear for their relevance, try to do it all, ignore others opinions, make mistakes and then try to hide or blame on somebody else. Other people are excellent teachers who will help you become a smart and competent leader. I've seen both.

Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 2 July 2018
Senior management did not believe in investing in technology which made working in IT difficult. I worked there before the financial crisis and found I could not believe senior management forecast. The boots on the ground people I worked with were awesome.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 25 June 2018
its been a while since i've worked there but when i was there i did enjoy working there it was good hard work that when done right made the day go by. they have three shifts like most places and some management is not so great but honestly every work place has at least one. advancement can be good long as you work hard and you can apply for different positions and take on new tasks and learn them fast. salary is as to be expected at any warehouse or manufacturing job anywhere between $14 - $20 an hr depending on where you start and your job title. other than that its not a bad place to work just make sure to go to work on time and every day and they will like you. oh and they also have events like bbq's and other cool stuff for the employees as incentive for their hard work.

wasnt the happiest place for myself just went in did my shifts did my easy given tasks perfectly and left after each shift. In my opinion the turn over right at this company that all people that come in dont actually get treated as humans but rather robots
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 15 May 2018
The salary was not so what I had expected managers and supervisors used to get angry with employees if things were not done properly. A lot of hassle and work that needed to be completed in time with customers expectations. To much lifting and gauging and inspection of parts a lot of work and quantity of products that needed to be delivered.
When there is work its a good place to work with good co-workers
Final Inspector (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 13 April 2018
It can be a productive day when machines are not down. I have been crossed trained which is beneficial when there is no work in my area. I have good supervisors and get along really well with them. There is a lot of different cultures in the workplace and it is very interesting to learn about them. Most are very friendly and I work well with them. The hardest part of this job is not being able to get my production done because of machine breakdowns which is too often. There are to many unscheduled shutdowns and 4 day work weeks which is very hard financially. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I can get more than required production out and working with my co-workers.
.to many problems with machines not being fixed properly
Desktop support Technician Co-op (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 1 April 2018
Linamar is one of the best Automotive industry anyone would love to work for, friendly and happy employees and there is a lot of great opportunities to grow. Management are always there to help make sure you are trained to the fullest extent.
Company promotes workhaulic culture with less focus on quality family time.
Sr Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 17 March 2018
Job security is the best in Linamar. Work is available. Great company to sta rt and learn and move on. Worse part is employ direspect and abuse. Most Managers are abusers and openly disrespectful. Company has poor human relations departments where HR is affraid of General Manager. Quality Managers havr same situation and they have to do what ever asked by Gerneral Managers. Salary is OK but bebifits are worse. Company is old fashioned with minimum support for healthy cafetaria food and flexible work.
