Family run company
Company is family run. They have promoted me from packer into quality to the position I am working now which is in the office. They believe in promoting from within.

Fast pace, slave work, terrible working conditions
Terrible working conditions. If you are a machine operator you are breathing in constant smoke from the machines, place has no air circulation. They have air vents that don't even work. Management will push you to work faster and stare at you throughout the duration of the shift. Got a chronic sinus infection then started getting respiratory issues then decided to quit.
Pros
Free benefits
Cons
Only get 2 20 minut breaks for the whole shift

Just Bad
No management support - high expectations without support to succeed.

No team work


Not customer focused, first step in the Customer Complaint Resolution Process is to fight with the customer, if unsuccessful, try to buy them off.

The people werent the nicest
Slave labour no real incentive to list. It was repetitive if you like that the presses were fun to run and set up but if I had my choice the area I thought was best was the die area..pretty cool trade.

Cut-throat environment
Manager keeps office doors and outside doors open in February. I got sick. After 2 weeks off I came back and he did same think. When I complained he cut me lose.
Also that manager expects you to make one machine program in 10 minutes. INSANE!!!

Wasn’t a good experience working there
I almost got hurt the second day on the job that I’m new to, the supervisor doesn’t take us through the proper training that’s needed and it’s hard to understand people.

I can't really recommend working here.
I started as a 3rd year apprentice, so I was ok was lower money, expecting decent raises as time went on. After I finished school, I only got a 25 cent raise for our annual raise, and guess because I complained and we were a little slow I got sent to the stamping for a few months fixing and repairing dies as well as trouble shooting in the press... all for a whopping $23.50 an hour doing the exact same stuff as the guys making $30+ an hour. Once my log book was filled out and my apprenticeship was complete I moved on, and now get paid a fair wage $28 to start.

So if you do want to work at Metrican, start high because the raises are small; across the shop most people got a 25 cent raise.


The designers are slow and not the best, so expect delays in your build, effecting your timeline.


The guys who work there are friendly, but there are a few guys coming and going right now.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Pay, Workload, Organization, some designers

The culture is fun and fosters learning and growth given the immense intricacy of stamping.

None other identified yet except for data being unorganized

Productive workplace with the best management
One of the best places for an entry level person with a very nice work environment. The company encourages feedback and new ideas. The employees and the management are very helpful and easygoing which creates a very stress-free and a productive environment. I not only learned a lot about the company but also about tool and die designing.
Pros
Metrican gives a person an opportunity to learn vast amount of knowledge about the industry.
Cons
Metrican could improve in terms of organizing its data.

Fast paced enviroment that keeps on your toes. Fun and very team oriented.
Everyday is different, and it really ties people together. Management is always working to ensure you are comfortable, but also requires that you are challenging yourself; It makes you feel like you are apart of something dynamic and alive.

I've personally learned a lot about what it takes to become a member of a team. You have to bring something of value to the table, something that makes everyone's life a little bit easier. Something that makes people see you as an asset.


I really enjoy going in in the morning; I always know what I am going to do and I also know there is a chance something new will come up and require people to get together to find a solution.


Also sometimes there is cake.
