Great people, friendly and laid back
I was hired on a summer student contract but would defiantly work here again in the future after I finish school. Good starting wage and they increased it again after I started. Now your guaranteed a raise after 3 months. The company is growing fast and a few people I worked with got promoted.

Fast paced full time job
A good summer job for students looking to get as many hours as they can and make as much money as they can over the summer months. Hires fast and can start working almost immediately in my experience.

Pay is nothing special, and the production team is constantly changing
I worked at North Star for just under a year. In my time I saw a large number of people quit. The factory does not have A/C so summer gets very hot on the factory floor. Training is given on your first day, and after that you are trained by other team members as opposed to actual trainers (for the most part). As long as I worked there they were understaffed, and as a result I often took on multiple duties at the same time due so lack of staff. Work is generally straightforward, and once you develop a rhythm it becomes pretty easy. The shifts are relatively long, and Saturday shifts tend to be on a every other week basis. Prior to COVID the factory ran 8 hour shifts, but due to the current backlog they run 9 hour shifts, and just recently started 10 hour shifts. Layoffs were not a worry due to the backlog and understaffing, and it's my understanding there won't be any for at least the next year, given the backlog hasn't been dug out of yet. Much of the new employees are foreign, and have lackluster English, often times making communication difficult. Wages are improving, but are still slightly below what other bigger plants are offering. As a production member, there is little room to grow in terms of salary, unless you decide to become a trainer, and eventually maybe even a team leader. There is a cafeteria which has snacks and some ready to go sandwiches, wraps etc. as well as frozen foods which can be heated up in one of the microwaves in the lunch room. The people at North Star are mostly nice. The people who I worked with on a daily basis were all nice and I was able to develop good relationships with all of them. Overall, it was a decent job for me as I was saving up for school, but unless you intend to work your way up the ladder, I would not suggest North Star as a place to spend your entire work career.
