Secure job with benefits, long hours of days/nights, clique-oriented workplace
Contract Technician (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 31 March 2018
Run the line of machines, replace materials when needed. It's tedious work, and often times you'll find yourself with nothing to do while you wait for materials to run out. In this case, you'll have to occupy yourself with cleaning the area if you want to look good for management.
Workplace culture is similar to high school with cliques of people. The Cliques usually form based on the department you work in, or your position. Contract techs (CTs) hang out with other CTs, full time techs with full time techs, management with management, etc.
Hardest part of the job is trying to make it through the 12 hour shifts, and switching from days to nights constantly.
Most enjoyable part of the job is working with people you get along with. Conversation really helps pass the time.
Benefits, gym access, consistent hours, secure
Long hours, sleep cycle constantly changing
