A temp job with minimal training
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 May 2018
Minimal training which should be done by the supervisors is neglected. They seem to be displeased when you ask basic questions as if it’s a burden. They expect you to do things a certain way but will not train you to do things to their standards. The only time any supervisor will speak to you is when a mistake is made. Positive reinforcement does not exist. They treat you as expendable.
Pros
Overtime, benefits 50%
Cons
Long hours, dealing with difficult coworker and management, working 6 days a week. This is not permeant

Easy, good paying work, great people
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON15 September 2018
Hot during the summers, lots of overtime..
However, the supervisors are great, the employees are even better. 3 shifts, so afternoon included which is the worst, but you pretty much have your choice of shift. Very good work environment altogether. Going to miss this place
Pros
Salary, benefits, colleagues, easy work
Cons
Over 60 degrees in the summer months

Was fun to work in this company back in the day
N/A (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON18 September 2018
This company used to be real good. Employees were well looked after but now we are just a number, worked to the bone. They don't care you have families, if they could they'd probably make you live there just to get work done. Everyone is overworked....the problem doesn't seem to have any resolution any time soon. It has been consumed with the idea of becoming "world class" that they forgot how to care for their employees.
Has become too "corporate". Whatever is "done for the employees" feels like the company was required to, not because they want to.
Pros
Some people are fun to work with
Cons
Long hours, company doesn't value their employees

Extremely disorganized, poor mangement and HR
Operator (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON13 December 2018
This company will treat you like a number. They will mess up your pay and if you do not notice it, they will not fix it...even when they do, it takes them several weeks to do so. They take weeks to reply to messages and HR never answers their phone. Majority of managers are only in position due to years, not because they are qualified. These managers are usually angry and horrible when it comes to people skills. When short workers they will make you work a two man job, and in warm weather every weekend is usually mandatory. Their lack of professionalism is clear.
Pros
ok pay for a factory
Cons
poor management

Typical 2nd tier Automotive plant
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON21 August 2018
Long hours, filled with temp employees, and strange management practices. Had pretty high turnover but that was 13 years ago. Working conditions were fairly good but maintenance struggled to keep everything up to par.

5 years to get to a livable Wage
Operator (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON4 August 2018
Awful place to work where management has absolutely no clue what is going senseless mandating is ovetime from the top down they will try to find who to blame problems on instead of focusing their energy on finding a Solution. The people you work with are good because they call all relate to the garbage experience with the company overall unless you just need a job temporarily don’t work here
Pros
Good people on the floor
Cons
Awful management and no time off

productive and efficient company in the field of powder metallurgy

The HR lies
Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Stratford, ON4 April 2017
Told we would be making a certain amount after doing our temp position of 6 months then they changed their minds and dropped the wage $1.50 without telling anyone, got laid off after weeks of mandated overtime. If you're a woman you can't move up. My supervisor flat out told me that he didn't want woman doing other jobs because it was 'too heavy and too dirty' for woman. Takes too long to be hired on. 6 months as a temp, then up to 18 months as a contract, then 3 mor months before you get benefits and profit sharing. They say it's only 'up to' 18 months to get hired on but no one gets hired on early.
Pros
Easy job
Cons

Dusty, Hot & Noisy
Manufacturing Press Set-up Technician/Operator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 August 2018
Very dusty due to powder metal being the primary raw material for production of parts. Noise coming from compacting presses and can be very hot during summer because of the furnaces.
