Senior Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 13 April 2018
I would say this is a decent company to work for. As far as when I worked there, management was pretty good in the first few months working there but then it deteriorated and was all about micro-management. If you can handle a repetitive job, this is for you. The hours aren't great as it is hard to balance your work and personal life as it is in direct conflict. But you learn to keep your eyes open, be aware of your surroundings, co-ordinate with others in an extremely loud and chaotic environment because it is a factory you are working in. The enjoyable part of the job is probably the co-workers and working as a team.
The hourly wage is decent, management is good in terms of how friendly and approachable they are. Unfortunately a rare few of them due tend to not keep their word and wouldn't hesitate to throw you under the bus if it benefits them. So trust your gut if you find you can't trust them and don't be afraid to look for help in someone else who is also management.
Overall, its not a luxurious job and can be quite rough at times but its decent income and you learn a lot about the importance of quality and many other skills you will eventually acquire as you continue working for this company.
Decent Wage, Good Co-Workers, Learn various skills

This company is the absolute worst company to work for. They do not care about health or well being, majority of what they do is illegal. They are a complete joke. The coworkers are great but the team leaders and supervisors (except for 2) are rude and don't care about you at all along with Human resources doesn't care either. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!

Progressive company focus on continuous improvement of processes and use of technology. Opportunity for growth within the company. Exciting platform to be in as they are developing their own software and identifying technologies to streamline workflow and hand this knowledge on to their clients.
Phoenix Quality its looking at the future and shaping the people and services with it. Workers who want to work are growing with the company and it is exciting to see them doing it.
Staff are friendly in this fast paced evolution of quality control.
Progression, Personal Development, Industry leader
Quality Inspector- HONDA (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 23 January 2018
Phoenix has a lot of great people working for them through management and team leaders , they often check up on associates to make sure they are okay. The work provided is sometimes slow and the jobs aren't the greatest but they will communicate with you the job and maintain your comfortability in the job environment

First off I would like to say this is a great place to work.
I found all of my coworkers and supervisors were excellent and helped me with everything I had asked of them and treated me as an equal. I never got the feeling that anyone felt they were better. If you have a problem they are always open to listening.
From the first day I worked I felt very welcomed. I was showed what was needed of me who everyone I would need to report to was and where everything is. The training was very useful as long as you pay attention as anywhere you wont be successful if you don't pay attention yourself you can only be trained as good as you allow yourself to be.
If you do your job great and excel in your job there is a lot of room for growth.
One thing I thought was great was that at most companies you would not see the owner on the floor working like you do here. HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. This company has a big heart.
Overall I would say as the training, communication and welcoming of this company would be five stars.

Fun new experiences everyday with a large variety of management to work with. Very positive work place with plenty of room with very nice people. Although the job can be difficult at times it is also very rewarding. You get to meet new people everyday and overall it's a great place to work.
Great People. Helpful and understanding management.
Parts Inspector (Former Employee) – Honda plant 2 – 12 April 2017
Never know what your job will be for the day, you feel like a useless part of the community when you're checking parts that dont even really need to be checked. they're always sending people home early due to no work and the amount of depression in the workplace is ridiculous. They would always put you somewhere you didnt want to be, when i asked to get switched off a certain job they did nothing about it even when i said it hurt my right shoulder all they said was to use my other arm. good for money but horrible for having a life out side of work.
Working here is like playing a game of broken telephone
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 15 February 2017
A job where you come into work everyday never knowing what to expect. Mgmt constantly changed the rules and micromanaged every little detail about uniform, dress code and sign in and out policy. Our shifts were constantly starting earlier and ending later on top of the mandatory Saturdays. If you missed one day a week there would be no OT on your pay unless you went over 44 hours and if you worked a Sunday you would not get double-time.
Feels more like a babysitting club than a job. A revolving door and lots of temps.
Lots of OT and paid out for vacation weekly
Poor mgmt never know what to expect at a grunt job
Inspector (Former Employee) – Alliston, ON – 17 December 2016
Upper management do everything to save a Buck even if it's shady. Open door policy is just a term used and is not followed up. Very disorganized from management down. Mostly younger employees first time job and management takes avatage of our inexperience with the employment laws.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – New Tecumseth, ON – 28 September 2016
Wasn't anything special, the jobs were hard sometimes and the rules kept changing so it was hard to follow and communication between the higher ups wasn't great but everyone was very nice and good to work with.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Whitby, ON – 28 June 2016
This place was horrible to work for. New people given preference for hours over more senior staff. Work shortages with promises to contact at a later date and they failed to contact, but when I returned they hired a lot of new people. some shortage.
Management does not have any concept of how to treat people with respect and when training, well there is no training. Everyone has a different method of doing something in you're reprimanded when a different person sees you not using their method.
No respect for senior employees and no respect for people as human beings. New students in charge of things and very clique place to work.
It was like the blind leading the blind and I saw one person very smart, new to Canada, could likely have gotten a much better job, but management seems to be working at a high school level. She clashed asking simple, logical questions and ultimately left due to lack of courtesy and respect. Most people are too smart for this job, but not the supervisors and management still there.
standing all day, management's disrespect of staff, Ministry of Labour leave policies not followed
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Alliston, ON – 11 April 2016
Phoenix is an excellent company that truly cares about their employees. Management is always willing to spend a minute talking and remembers the little things like our birthdays or other special days. They go out of their way to help with shift adjustments when required and help out when problems are encountered during shifts.
Steady work, excellent work climate, caring company, great management, benefits and competitive wages with potential for advancement
