Repetitive work with poor benefits. management is not flexible and belittles the employees as uneducated and inferior. The company provides raises and benefits on a minimum scale. Very cheap with employees but throws away money on constant inefficient repairs.

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) - Cambridge, ON
The managment will write you up if you are sick.. Even with docotrs notes.. They are sneaky.. Liars.. The lunch room is full of black mold.. They want input but not if you are intelligent.. You are required to work overtime.. But back to ic you are sick.. You will lose your job.

Machine Operator (Current Employee) - Cambridge, ON
A lot of drama goes around with people talking about anyone behind their backs. Lack of/poor management. Because of it people don't stay long. The environment is horrible, constantly breathing in chemicals and sand. Poor ventilation. Another issue is also the organization, all the product is scattered or not enough space. Also 0 room for moving up in the company. The pay is also not very good considering the amount of heavy lifting you have to do along with dealing with dangerous chemicals.

Production Ops (Former Employee) - Cambridge, ON
The best part of this job is the supervisors. They are the greatest I have ever had. They know everything about everything going on in there. Management is near useless and should probably be fired.
There is virtually unlimited overtime and it is paid after 40 hours. Coworkers are like characters from a comedy show and are a pleasure to work with. This is not a lax job to work but you can make a lot of money here.
