Stepping stone. Don't waste your time
(Heritage) - Operator (Current Employee) – Hannon, ON – 24 May 2019
This is a very poor job choice. I've been working with maple leaf for just over three months and honestly this is one of the most disorganized, and poorly managed work environments I've ever had the displeasure of joining. When I was hired I was promised a dream job, with chances of advancement however there was no such thing. The job I was hired to take (and was more than overqualified for) became a seniority squabble, never saw the position, have repeatedly tried to get into the post but constant stonewalling. The employees are lazy and half present, they walk in front, behind,and around your forklift no matter how many times you sound the horn which is not only stressful but poses obvious safety hazzards. Management is incompetent and constantly lies to you, I got hired as many employees were leaving for obvious reasons, but I brushed these naysayers off as disgruntled employees. I was made to work which is granted, it's a job right? My work was never good enough and I barely had any time to relax. They love their lazy people though, as the person I trained to replace me legitimately sleeps on the job right in the open, and treats everyone like a slave, and nobody not even the supervisor does a thing about it hence the terrible leadership. If you work hard they will abuse it. Summer job, don't waste more time than that. I regret staying past the first month as I had prior job offerings that would have ended up being more worthwhile, but live and learn. Hoping to help make an informed decision for a like-minded individual.
Easy money. If you are lazy, incompetent and don't want a worthwhile, and rewarding career this may be for you.
Terrible environment, poor management, and sloppy lazy coworkers.
