Would avoid this company as an engineer
Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 27 November 2018
An extremely stressful workplace due to poor management and policies. Expect lots of unpaid/ uncompensated overtime due to unrealistic deadlines. They refuse to compensate for overtime (no pay or time in lieu of) but expect you to meet deadlines by working overtime or will be looked down on ( boss actually said I would be less likely considered for advancement, pay increase,etc if i didn’t). For example If you have to get to work early or stay late to deal with factory, design issue, etc you are not allowed to leave early and this overtime is not tracked and you will never get that time back. Salary workers in Manitoba by labor laws are to be compensated for overtime. They get around this by saying ‘we are not asking you to do this overtime but we are asking you to get your job done’ which requires overtime. I probably racked up 100+ hours of overtime trying to get the job done. You don’t get standard 2 weeks vacation. (Some colleagues got 0 some got 1). Christmas bonus was 20$ cash. They are borderline following manitoba labor laws if at all. Huge turn around in every group/ devision due to above reasons. #notmyprice.
