Electrician Journeyman (Current Employee) – University of Toronto – 13 May 2018
A lot of foreman hire and fire guys everyweek because apparently it makes them look good when it comes to upper management. They will push anything and anyone under the bus in order to be seem as a good foreman who is good at managing his workers. Micro manage is hugeee here, speak up and your gone. Nepotism is hugeeee here also.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – 20 West Beaver Creek Road, Richmond Hill, Ontario – 6 May 2018
This is probably one of the worst company I had ever been with. I worked with Symtech for 3 years and my role got switched a dozen times. Higher ups in this office doesn't respect regular employees like normal people. They will not interact with you unless they need something from you.
They like to make a lot of promises when they hire you but they will not fulfill any of it.
To survive, you must kiss up to the higher ups in the office.
My starting salary was at $32000 never gotten a raise or a bonus. Their heath benefit is terrible. Vacation days: 8 days per year. Sick days: 3 days per year. You get 13 days of vacations once you have worked with them for 5 years.
IT Technician (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 January 2018
I have worked for Symtech for two years now at a clients large data center. As I was out of work I decided to stay for a while but am now trying hard to find another job. This is the only company in my IT career that has payed minimum wage ! For the record I am not the only one making $14. I am an employee of Symtech doing an important job for large customers such as banks and Symtech pays my a donut store wage (also no benefits or vacation!). I heard they are thinking about expanding into the US but they don't give a darn about their employee's here.
Journeyman Electrician 309A (Former Employee) – 9-35 Riviera Drive, Markham, Ont L3R 8N4 – 18 September 2015
Very rewarding, challenging and satisfying work. Helpful and respectful co-workers and supervisors. Necessary tools and instructions (when required) provided. Responsibilities gladly provided and appreciated as experience gained on the job.
Early start and finishing at job sites was much appreciated given the traffic congestion in Toronto.
Purchasing/Logistics Manager (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 19 September 2014
Company has very little communication from top management down. Expectations and focus on priorities (Other than profit) are lacking. Many Chiefs all concerned with their own issues. But no head to steer the ship. Turnover very high.
