The company use to be family oriented, but hasn't been in years. Supervisor's and managers are allowed to bullie and manipulate employees. They want you to quit so they dont have to pay out severrance. Only 20% of the yarn is produced at the plant, the other 80% is shipped in dyed, balled and labelled from China, Turkey, Asia and so on. If you complain to HR, they do nothing for you.. If you speak up about anything, than it comes back on you. Dyehouse is the the worst department to work in. If your a woman expect to be sexually assaulted physically and mentally.
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
Not worth it

This company is led by shady old men and women who don't care about their employees or their safety. People are constantly caught with no ppe and HR doesn't care. In fact you never even see them on the floor. The head of HR is literally never at the plant because she's too busy working from home. There is no room for advancement even though they swear up and down there is. AVOID spinrite. This place has a special way of taking hard workers and reducing them to shells.

Good people that want the company to succeed. Leadership needs to get beyond ego/pride and do what is right. Old school thinking results in good people leaving. It is really too bad.
Leadership is not to be trusted.

Leadership at the Toronto office is appalling and verbally and emotionally abusive. They constantly belittle their employees, including in front of your fellow coworkers for great lengths of time. Many intelligent, hardworking employees have been pushed to tears at the hands of upper management. The President is well aware of these issues but hasn't implemented any changes. Expect all of the drawbacks of an "entrepreneurial" environment, including no regard for work-life balance, with none of the benefits. Constant turnover which puts an even bigger strain on employees.

Exrremely expensive benefits! Almost not worth the money. Lots of old employees who are grumpy and unhappy! People are frendly at first but then after while you notice little clicks. Too much drama, some of it childish and all over face book. Feels toxic. Needs modernization in management and equipment. Also not very fair place to work. Some get the special treatment and some get writen up for it. Wages are not that great any more. Poor communication between mamagement and employees. It creates low morale. lots of production has been contracred to china so also may be a bleak future.
Pros
Paid lunch
Cons
Expansive benefits

You are working around machines that produce steam well working in chemical suit. If you can take the heat then not that bad of a place to work. You get wet unloading the machines as well.

Good balance between work and life. respectful and encouraging environment with decent promise of advancement. satisfactory salary and benefits.
The hardest part of the job was to have to quit due to some family health problems which required my immediate attention for an extended period. I could not have asked for compassionate leave as I had to be overseas.

The most enjoyable part was to see the people who were not used to working as strongly bonded teams taking part in the teams I created and started to work in great harmony and joy.

Work place fosters low morale and does little to motivate teams in all departments. Upper management shows little to no interest in mentoring their respective teams.

Still, the mid management team is great - we support one another and work together to complete our large and critical projects for key accounts.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
No opportunity for growth, no credit given for ideas, no opportunity for pay raise
