Unfair practice

work load is not fair at all , some employer have work load more than others , manager does not care that much. the company have no stable quality standard , quality for the company is individual base , some employer in quality department they do not have basic quality skills visual inspector no measurement instrument , overall quality department look a masse . personal experience it does not add nothing to my education and experience except for dealing up with people . The most I did not like about the job manager does not carry the weight of the job .

Good company and employees
Robotic Trimmer Operator (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON11 November 2017
Rimowa was a good company to work for with excellent management and fun employees and events. It was also good pay and good benefits. A typical day consisted of setting up and operating the robotic trimming machine and inspecting parts as they came out of the machine. The hardest part of the job was the inspection.
Pros
Free coffee! and the occasional free lunch
Cons
None

good place to work if you don't want to advance
Shipper/Receiver/Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON21 October 2017
Management has a habit of underusing the skills and knowledge of their workers. Promotions and advancement are given to people that are in the "popular hang out group" instead of being based on experience, attendance and merit.
Pros
decent hours
Cons
management avoid dealing with legal issues

Great people, clean place, air conditioned plant.
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON23 June 2017
I have been really lucky to work at Rimowa. Have met a lot of great people. It's a clean and pleasant place to work. I have worked in other factories before but have never enjoyed working in a plant that is air conditioned.

Inconsistent work environment
Polycarbonate Assembly (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 April 2017
This place hires only through temp agencies for the production department. It takes about 8-9 months on average for anyone to get hired and when you do they still make you wait 3 months for full time status. There's no advancement or development opportunities. Salary is average for this line of work but you only get one raise after a year of employment and then there's no more. There's no reward or incentive for long term employees. Take work environment is similar to a high school. Average worker is between 19-25 yrs old and there's lots of drama/bullying between workers. Very inconsistent, there's no organization and management is almost invisible. I would only recommend this job as an in between stop, not a place to settle long term.
Pros
Christmas bonus
Cons
Management, environment, and low pay.

Was an enjoyable experience.
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON14 February 2017
Arriving at the work station, wait an hour for the entire line to get there and get the belts moving to start building the products.

Was an easy and straight forward job, enjoyed the time there.

The most enjoyable part of the job would be seeing the way the suitcases and briefcases are made. And the mechanics behind it.

Shipping Receiving / Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON23 November 2015
Very high standards for their product, so very high standards for their employees. Fair, but also very little leniency for absenteeism and punctuality.

Little chance to move up; often hires outside the company.
Pros
employee appreciation
Cons
mandatory overtime

Good Job but very poor management
Aluminum Framer (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON20 August 2015
The workplace is very clean. The coworkers are like family and very respectful, most of the time. The Lead Hands also very friendly and straightforward.

The management from supervisor to head are a whole different batch of eggs. They have almost 0 respect for health and safety of workers. Specifically the aluminum framers, that includes myself. The damaging effects of framing has caused many to quit, and others file for health benefits due excruciating pains in the hands, arms, shoulders and back.

When spoken to supervisor, no action is taken really. Even the salary for this position is 14$/hr. Same as the other positions of the assembly line with much less serious consequences.

The Head cares more about production and quantity rather than the health of its workers. This causes lack of any possibility of advancements.
Pros
very clean, nice big open cafeteria
Cons
Lack of good management
