N/A (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 18 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.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 15 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
productive and efficient company in the field of powder metallurgy
Metallurgist (Current Employee) – Stratford, ON – 7 September 2018
It's a nice company which will give you the opportunity for your professional growth if you have a strong desire to learn and prove your capability. However, it's difficult to work on the shop floor in summer as its too hot due to the running furnaces.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 21 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.
Operator (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 4 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

Quality Control Associate (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 1 July 2018
• Machine operation/ Quality inspection for finished auto manufactured parts and ensured that they were in accordance with quality standards Management lacks proper production planning. However there is good team work among employees.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 5 June 2018
i worked at stackpole for one month and was let go soon after. The people that trained me did what they were supposed to but the coworkers were very rude and not helpful to me when i was a new employee working in a factory for my first time.
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 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.
Overtime, benefits 50%
Long hours, dealing with difficult coworker and management, working 6 days a week. This is not permeant
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Stratford, ON – 16 May 2018
decent people and atmosphere to work in although its very hot and very dirty.... fast paced and very busy work place.... if you don't mind heat and being cover in carbon dust then its a great place to work
CNC Setter/Operator (Current Employee) – Stratford, ON – 2 May 2018
Nothing good or bad to say about Stackpole. Only problem as of right now is that they've been mandating for the pass year and it doesn't seem like its going to stop. Also has trouble hiring for some reason.
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 27 April 2018
I learned a lot of things while working at Stackpole. First most important thing was to manage your time properly. We need to check the required number of parts in my shifts. As the number varies everyday, we need to maintain a speed to achieve my target. Second thing was to help others. As the work is done in groups, everybody get his or her own targets. If I had completed my target, I can work slow at the last hours but I like to finish my work fast and help others to complete their targets.
