Truly lean six sigma manufacturing company in Winnipeg
It is one of very few electronics manufacturing companies left in Winnipeg.
Fast paced, very well organized and focused on lean six sigma practices providing progressive career to new as well experienced employees.

Okay
People wouldn't train you, they seemed to focus on their own job and wouldn't show you other machines to use, very hard to get good at any of them when it was like this

Lots of overtime required
Downside- Lots of overtime required due to volume of work. Not good from a work life balance perpective. Upside- Good cafeteria that had a talented cooking staff.

Great place to work
My experience overall was very good, I started out a press operator and within 6 months I was running a barbell and extruder and was making some of the more expensive and unique o rings.

Unresponsible team leaders and management
They hired people with engineering degrees from accredited Canadian universities to work in the assembly line and pay them with minimum wage. It says a lot about this company. There is no chance for advancement and they just make you work in the manufacturing facility despite your qualification.

Incompetent managers and they try to blame it to the subordinates for their mistakes. No proper training is given to new employees especially when it comes to using the equipments and machines.


The workers are treated differently. If you are just a temporary employee, you would not be treated with respect.

Management is only empty threats - don't bother
People do what they want here. Call in sick once a week - whatever. Make scrap parts - meh. If the manager doesn't like you, then you will never do anything right. High turnover if they can get people.

The only thing they are strict about is safety.

HR is the weakest link
Highly transactional. Unable to comprehend and do root cause analysis resulting in unresolved issues. Hiring has also been suffering as a result of improper screening,

Could be a great place to work with the right management.
Nice building. Okay wages, a bit above average. Good hours.
Many friendly/helpful coworkers.


The Managers at the Milton location are so afraid that they won't measure up to their U.S. counterparts that they will turn a blind eye to their subordinates who take part in bullying their coworkers. The Managers are only interested in how they are viewed by Head Office in the States. They do not protect their employees from being treated unfairly.
Pros
Location, money, professional setting....
Cons
Weak managers who don't have the courage to acknowledge bullying. Obvious favouritism.

diverse company, safety concern is the top priority. Good teamwork and was a great experience. Corrective action was poor when concerning issues but for some certain top management person but not all of them.

Good People
My coworkers were fantastic. They made the job worth coming to, and I loved that my division had Casual Friday, which also included many of us either going out together for lunch, or ordering in food. That said, the job itself wasn't what I wanted, and I became bored with it quick. I reached my learning peak within a couple of weeks, until we got a new software program within the department that meant learning something new all over again. But, just because the job wasn't a good fit for me doesn't mean that it won't fit someone else perfectly.
Pros
Casual Friday, and Friday group lunches
Cons
Lots of repetitive data entry

Created a fun low stress work environment.
Hold daily stand-up meetings, worked with staff on improving personal requirements such as training. Attended production meetings. Scheduled work assignments, daily reporting. Performance reviews, annual reviews and disciplinary reviews. Conducted interviews. My most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the growth and success of my department.
Pros
Daily interactions with my team.
Cons
Work place morale was low due to possible lay-offs
