Cut throat environment and low moral within the company
Fitter/Welder (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON2 January 2019
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.
Pros
Free coffee machines, profit sharing, benefits
Cons
All of Management, Unrealistic production hours, Wages, Gossip

Acceptable work atmosphere amongs the employees
Fitter/Welder/ Fabricator (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON28 July 2018
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

Productive and fun place to work
Fitter (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON12 September 2012
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.
