Fabricator/Service (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 18 January 2019
I was fortunate that my skills were very diversified so my job frequently changed. I was able to fabricate, weld, assemble and assist maintenance. Starting off I was welding on the line and worked my way into a different position. I was able to learn a lot from this company and progress with my welding and fabricating skills. Supervisors can work with your schedule if you communicate with them but expect you to work your hours. The workload isn't too much but can become tiring. I always had 40 hours a week of work even during the slow times.
Cut throat environment and low moral within the company

Do not expect to be treated very well here, and expect to have completely unrealistic production times shoved down your throat. No room for advancement. Wages are only competitive after 7+ years of being with the company (if you can last that long) Management is extremely toxic, do not speak up and voice your concerns. Do not trust any employee with sensitive information, people love to talk and gossip throughout the shop.
Free coffee machines, profit sharing, benefits
All of Management, Unrealistic production hours, Wages, Gossip

Acceptable work atmosphere amongs the employees however the management can be bullies if your a yes man and treat the long timers like their invincible. Altogether I do like them and I would refer the job to anyone looking for security. Ken Macdonald is an amazing person and respects his employees it’s too bad his appointed plant managers don’t do the same

Perform tasks assigned to me. I learned to work with different metals. Management - the owner of the company would make an effort to talk to all employees on a 1 on 1 basis. Co-workers were easy to get along with. Hardest part of the job was adjust to different procedures. Enjoyable part of the job was working on new products.
