As of late, I would advise not to accept a position at the ajax location. If you are an aspiring power engineer or just a student trying to make ends meet, you will most definitely have to undergo an massive lay off. Management is underqualified and financially drowning themselves.
If you do end up catch yourself working here, I would at least keep contact with your previous employer and be cautious.
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.
