Hot Wire Operator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 20 September 2019
Wage and benefits are the only good things to say about this company. Its a union shop and has a lot of union politics. After the fact resolution. Employees are negative and hard to work with. Most employees have a i do what i want attitude. New management lacks communication with staff. Promotion is next to impossible unless your a part of the district managers personal inner circle. Its extremely messy on the shop floor with a haze of smoke though out the facility. Health and safety issues tend to get neglected. Multiple layoffs.I had 5 layoffs in 2 years. There is a overall lack of leadership company wide. Negative verbal atmosphere and some violence, in which those employees are still there? Seniority is the golden rule regardless of skill set. example: best worker vs worst worker-worst worker wins job posting based on seniority 100% of the time. Mandatory overtime is often exercised resulting in a poor work life balance.
