Terrible place to work
Maintenance Labourer (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC27 April 2018
Dont work here...safety and employees lives mean nothing. Production production production.
You get your schedule friday night for monday morning. You could work days afternoons or graveyards or a combination of the three in a single week.
"Mandatory" overtime or disciplinary action.
Employees overworked in dangerous conditions equals serious injuries.
Before your start look at their work safe records and decide if you want to be a statistic.
Pros
Fellow employees in the trenches
Cons
Management, lack of safety, working conditions

Loader Operator , plant operator (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC29 March 2018
My advice is to be open to change, especially modern and global change, give staff the autonomy to develop the role and themselves, don't treat employees like you're in a dictatorship.
(Main Management district and regional) do not care about you or your life or you all they care about is production they work your till your exhausted and mentally drained. On plus side the workers are great they treat you like family. Safety is a big issue there once again they would rather care more about production over the safety of the employees . They also don't have proper work scheduling you never know how long your on a certain shift. (Morning, afternoons, or graveyards)
Pros
The wages and benefits, and coworkers are great
Cons
1.Safety 2.regional and district managers. Management clashes with workers

no room for advancement no concrete schedule
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC16 March 2018
One of the worst places I've worked in my life .. coming from a heavy equipment background granted the wage and then taken from me because of workers hating on outside success ... management gets ears filled easy and human resources lady is a joke .. smile in your face talk behind ur back
Also there's no garunteed work schdule can always be moved around

Management doesn't care about workers .. only within union lines




WBC has also been informed of improper working conditions
Pros
Friendly workers
Cons
No garunteed schdule always moved around
