Bully management structure, poor support and training for shop floor wirkers
Shop floor worker (Current Employee) – Stratford, ON – 16 February 2017
This corporation is trying to get blood from rocks. That means wherever and whenever a corner can be cut it most surely will be. That means little to zero training, little technical support for shop floor workers, diminishing benefits and compensation, tiered wages, reactive vs. pro-active maintenance and upkeep. Their idea of a reward and recognition system rewards employees with a pittance... not even worth the effort. Pretty poor for an aerospace company.
The management structure locally in Stratford is a total bully and fear system. If you make a mistake, you will be "investigated", if you do well, you'll hear nothing but be unable to move out of your current position. The sh#% flows downhill and far too much of the resposibility is shouldered by shop floor workers... you'll be hung out to dry if your area leader has to save his own skin. HR policy is either non-existant or vague and it seems things never get handled the same way twice. Needless to say, the morale is not high and the general consensus is not to care. This is unfortunate as I personally am not like this by nature... purely a survival mechanism in an environment like this.
I have worked for some good companies in my career, this is not one of them.
Good clean air quality for a manufacturing environment, short walk from parking lot, good cafeteria
poorly run, bully management environment, no support from leadership, neglected equipment, wishy-washy HR policy, tiered pay, no real on-job training, $ 0.2 raises!?....
