Great place to work
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON5 February 2018
the workplace is dirty and the janitor doesn't clean. The workers are great and the supervisors make friends with a small group of people to hog all the overtime and get all the praise

Former employee - Head office (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 October 2017

Company has gone downhill with new management brought in
Employee (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 February 2017
The culture has become very divisive, and confrontational. many new players have been brought in at senior levels with conflicting agendas. There is a tremendous amount of empire building and lack of cooperation within the various business units.

Interesting and friendly place to work
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Nash Rd. N, Hamilton, ON16 May 2014
Processing work orders to have coils shipped to companies accordingly, process PO's, entry of freight charges, chemistries of coils, and invoice when all is complete.
Learned to make sure that coils for each company are shipped together and in a timely manner. Management was very helpful with learning to help in any way needed. Co-workers were always helpful and advised when to hold back a work order until all coils for that shipment were all together to be shipped in one shipment. Hardest part of the job was making sure that coils were actually shipped and not sitting in the warehouse waiting for another shipment to be completed. Most enjoyable part of the job was learning a new type of industry to enhance my skills.
Pros
Lunch at your convenience
Cons
Not long enough of a temporary position
