Where to begin at how bad this place is
Millwright (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON1 February 2019
If your a tradesperson stay away.!! Ancaster EPDM. From day one this was a disappointment for such a large company. Sat through basic policies during day one and found out the Human Resources Manager was leaving. Everything that is described in the duties is not even close. The plant is saturated with coolant mist on everything! Shadowed for my first 2 weeks. Learned nothing useful as most people mashed buttons. There is no reason or rhyme as to the “automation” It’s a bunch of equipment thrown together with interlocks. 1/3rd of the CNC is 15 plus years old. Everything is on top of everything and working on it is difficult. Guarding is so close and oil covered you better hope they get you your uniform in 2 weeks. Mine took a month and a half after several requests. Measurements were supposed to be day one. The newer equipment and CNC is not much better. Poor design for equipment and CNC is covered in oil. Step very carefully as there is no handrails. Faded HMI screens. CNC interface is mostly unreadable and different from machine to machine even though it’s the same make and year. Training is zero. In my interview I expressly said I have limited CNC and have rebuilt robots. I was told training would be forthcoming. The person who was implementing that (the maintenance manager) left in my 3rd week there. You will be on a rotating continental days and nights. The 4 Maintenance crews have good people and some very bad people. Extremely toxic and because you’re new will find ways to pick you apart and place that where it will be heard. This place will eat you alive a spit you  more... out. Being told you’re not good enough and walked out the door without having a clue what you being measured against is crushing.  less
Pros
Pay, benefits and tier one discounts
Cons
Absolutely toxic

Worst HR ever
Employee (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON19 January 2019
Worst HR in Ancaster plant. They lie about the position. Absolutely no benefits. They lie about benifits. No value for employees. Again the HR generalist ( the old one) is very incapable of handling things.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Hr

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

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

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

productive and efficient company in the field of powder metallurgy
Metallurgist (Current Employee) –  Stratford, ON7 September 2018

Highly advanced in technology and automation

Low pay scale

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.

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.
