Great people and culture
Manufacturing staff (Current Employee) –  Sidney, BC9 December 2018
This is a great place if you want to get involved and make a difference. Lean manufacturing culture means there are standards to follow, but also means quality is high. Company makes great products that have lots of demand (stable work) and the people really care about the work and the customers that they service. Training is offered, suggestions are valued.
Pros
Clean and bright workplace, safety is high, work areas are covered and heated
Cons
Company social activities are infrequent

Poor management
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Sidney, BC12 October 2018
In order to advance it appears you need to suck up to the supervisors. Most managers are unqualified, and have zero people skills. Upper management needs to go.
Pros
Pention
Cons
Too many to list.

Official response from NICHOLSON MANUFACTURING
17 October 2018

Thank you, this is obviously important to you so I would like to address it. What you describe is not how we want to operate. Our process for internal postings, especially apprenticeships since we’re doing many more of them now, has improved but is still a work in progress. We want the process to be as effective and fair as possible and we’ll continue to work on it. You can help: my door is usually open – if you want to talk about it and try to address the issue please come by. - Peter

union has its advantages but it appeared it took a while to get seniority
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC31 October 2012
Was only there a short time but was good in a way as with all the union benifits and pension plans you could retire from there and have a good pension. So overall a good company.
