satisfying work environment
Warehouse Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 January 2018
Unlike a lot of companies where they claim they care about safety at southwire it really is important to them. The whole shift even does stretches first thing for 15 min. Hardest part of the job would be lifting heavy reels of wire.
Pros
good pay, very friendly supervisors, good benefits

This company no longer exists in Canada. They had to close as per their business strategy, but while it was there, it was a good company, good coworkers.

Great job poor management
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 October 2016
Great interesting job new challenges everyday. Hours as a supervisor were longer than everyone there but over time was paid for those hours which allowed an opertunity to make a comparable wage to other positions in the business.management was inconsistent when it came to discipline and favourites were played. This would be the only knock the job

A hard earned fun place to work.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON18 May 2016
There's no end in sight to the number of system issues the company has to deal with since switching over to SAP. But when all is said and done most of the colleagues and co-workers are great people to work with. Managers are very supportive and friendly making them easy to talk with.

My only concern with Southwire Canada is that with the exception of Sales roles, there's very little opportunity for growth within the company.

The hardest part of the job would be the sheer workload. Primarily due to the multiple systems being integrated into one is slow and causing many inefficiencies. Employees feel short staffed on good days, while taking vacation is a nightmare upon returning.

Yes it's hard work, but rest assured there is a lot to learn here and a lot of fun to be had. From cake days once a month to celebrate birthdays to daily fruit provisions, as well as a decent gym - we are well taken care of.
Pros
Free fruits, decent gym
Cons
Heavy workload

Company has innovative products that contractors need.
Contractor Sales Manager, Ontario (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON2 May 2016
Southwire is on the leading edge of wire & cable technology. The SIMpill Solutions program has been a real hit with electrical contractors, saving them labour dollars.

Good people to work with
Lead Hand/ Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Stouffville, ON15 August 2014
a great place to work when it was Noma Cable Tech. Not so good after bought by Southwire and closed us and took our work all down to the USA plants. We had high quality and made the most difficult products. Now i hear they have quality problems with some of their products. Thats what happens when you boot a skilled work force out the door
