Boiler-Room Mechanic in Bridgewater, NS
Ita a great company. Just not for meCompany is good, they dont expect much. But also dont expect them to go out their way to help you unless it drastically benefits them. The company itself is great, but the place just isn't for me. I've had a few too many bad experiences there so far and how they handled some situations and have treated me since has deterred me from wanting to go back for a pretty long time.
Très bon environnement de travail et collègue sympathiqueTrès bon endroit pour travailler , avec de beau locaux et une superbe ambiance

Production Worker in Bridgewater, NS
Michelin is nothing but a clown circusstay far away from Michelin. Build a career somewheres else, you will be much happier. Trust me. they have came out with a new pay plan which is worse then the old one and they revised all the benefits which is a lost to new employees. you will be required to work lots of overtime, trust me and also be put on call twice a month. If you have mental health issues don’t even think about applying here, you will hate it and they will basically look at you like tough beep.They don’t care about nothing other then building tires. You are a number and a replaceable one at that. stay away.
Calibration Technician in Waterville, NS
Very narrow sighted on job placement related to background. Very difficult to advance as a technician.Was initially excited to start work there. Started in an Operator/Maintainer position which meant I operated the equipment and was able to perform maintenance as required. (turned out to be about 80% operator duties/20% maintenance duties.) Was not interested in being a machine operator with over 20 years process controls experience so was moved to another department as a reliability technician. Again, this turned out to be 90% mechanical/ 10% electronic. Moved to a Calibration Technician position which got me out of the maintenance pay scale and found out it was a dead end position with no room for advancement and only cost of living pay increases. Enquired about returning to maintenance but had to go for further testing at my own expense and time. Finally reached a dead end and left for a more suitable position. Michelin likes to hire electronics/electrical people and place them in predominately mechanical jobs ??? In order to move up the maintenance pay scale, you are required to do both written testing and practical testing for both electrical troubleshooting and mechanical assembly and alignment to advance. Most mechanics have difficulty passing the Electrical Troubleshooting and most Electrical/Electronics people have difficulty passing the mechanical assembly/alignment which means your advancement is delayed until you pass both. Very stressful and to me totally unnecessary for a 20+ year experienced electronics technician (process controls)
