Was a great place to work until it got slow. Like all industry it ebbs and flows. Supply and Demand, If the economy is suffering so does the workforce.

My work life at Siemens Westinghouse.

We were a three shift operation,working static shifts I worked 11 pm. to 7am. Typically I would arrive early to go over the shift prior to mine with the afternoon operator, then either carry on with what ever job was loaded or load another diaphram for laser welding.. Over the years at Siemens -Westinghouse power generation I learned many skills ..I worked as a gas and plasma shape cutter operator,Fitter welder (tig Welding), Paint shop, and finally,CNC Laser welding and cutting. Our management team worked hand in hand with our labour force,, with very good communications and cooperation .we produced high quality extremely efficient Gas turbine engines,the largest 60 hz. turbine in the world.. Working here was a pleasure,, We had many company activities. ie::golf tournaments, family outings , Christmas parties ,etc. I've never considered my job hard, but more mentally challenging,, but enjoyable.. Learning new skills was by far the most enjoyable part of my job.

Pros

excellent wages, good benefits, good work environment

Cons

Plant closure and moving to the US

Productive work enviorment

I had an extremely pleasant experience working with Siemens in Hamilton. I learned to set goals at work and achieve my tasks one at a time while maintaining a good balance and situational awareness of all other ongoing projects I was dealing with at the same time. It allowed me to multi task while keeping my CO up to date on all progress and trouble tickets. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and learned a great set of experience from them.

Pros

High work tempo

Cons

multipule project leaders, lack of coordination.

Excellent working environment with cutting edge process and quality

While with Siemens I had a great glimpse into a 6 sigma controlled process. Continuous improvement initiatives were a way of life at Siemens. Cross functional Kaizen events were conducted weekly and this access to a wide skill set in various disciplines is very enriching. My managers were fantastic, the engineers were beyond intelligent and the environment was suitable for anyone.

Pros

Constant feedback

Cons

Short term employment

Great company with a strong base and ability to climb the corporate ladder

My day to day activities include preventative maintenance of wind turbines, troubleshooting turbine issues, and fill in site lead when needed. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with many different technicians with certain skills in this industry. In doing so, I have acquired many skill to be able to complete my work in a effective manner. I would say the hardest part of my job would be the 280 foot climb we must complete in the the mornings. The most enjoyable part of my responsibilities is when we find and repair the issue with the turbine after troubleshooting it. It is very rewarding to get the turbine up and running due to what we discovered.

Interesting place to work, challenging work

Not a bad place to work, sometimes challenging and exciting opportunities, projects, tasks available for employees with some initiitive. Good wages and a nice office enviroment. I made a lot of friends and enjoyed my job most days. Unfortunately being a foreign owned company the work was pulled out of Hamilton and moved to the US. and the Hamilton plant shutdown. Somewhat top heavy with Management types who weren't always in tune with the rank and file employees.

Pros

good wages, good office enviroment, good employees

Cons

foreign owned, management not in tune with employees
