Where happiness goes to die
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON12 May 2019
If you want to be miserable then you've found the right place to work. TMMC has been on a downward spiral for several years and just keeps getting worse. They have somehow forgotten how to treat their employees like human beings and will trade your health and safety just to save a few bucks. After a huge hike in the minimum wage, TMMC no longer pays enough to constitute working in an environment such as this.

Quickly turning into a sweatshop for contracts
Production Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON24 September 2018
After a decade, when you reach full wage and full vacation, the deal’s not too bad, but you start on contract (which you can expect to last almost 4 years nowadays) at only 60% of full wage and an even smaller fraction of the benefits/vacation.

Some people do hit the jackpot and get placed (and stay in) easier areas (QC, plastics, a couple lines in weld/press, final line/repair) with decent management, but you’re far more likely to end up in assembly, suspension, or paint with callous management and gloomy coworkers.

So if you don’t mind busting your rear end doing mind numbingly repetitive, back breaking work on rotating shifts with management that thinks you’re a spoiled crybaby, all while living close to poverty and getting very little time off, then this is the job for you. And then if you don’t mind reaching the 10 year mark still doing the same gruelling work but now locked in by the money because you’ve got no transferable skills, then even better. Otherwise, keep your health and sanity and find a slightly less lucrative, but much more bearable job.
Pros
Full rate after 10 years
Cons
Everything else

Mindless repetition and horrible shift rotation
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 July 2018
Line jobs are horrible and Takt time (timeframe to do job process) is inhuman. Literally inhuman, these jobs are meant for robots and eventually will be taken over by automation.
Pay gets better the longer you stay but there is a price.
Not worth it in my opinion.
Be warned.
Pros
Steady secure paycheque.
Cons
Takes a toll on your life.

Resist the temptation of money over the health of your body & mind!
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON10 May 2018
Money: for anyone who starts now it's a fraction of what it once was & you will not be a permanent employee(with benefits/holidays) for minimum 3 years. By then your body will begin to break down from the repetitive, jarring, awkward body positions. Which the company will do their very best to deny any claims of injury resulting from the work, letalone care about your pain or you in general.

Environment: tends to be negative & toxic; mentally & emotionally wearing depending on coworkers & management in your area. It's high school, except you are surrounded by bullies with no escape. Human resources is probably the worst. I suggest audio recording ANY & ALL conversations with HR or management(GL, AM, etc.), definitely beneficial evidence for any probable future litigation. They erase their pen-written notes of what you say that is damaging to them. You are only a number & easily replaceable...definitely the common feeling amongst employees.

Work: keeping pace is strenuous, no time for a sip of water unless the line stops or you ask a TL to step in for a car.
Bathroom breaks are frowned upon, with threat of being written up.
Ambient temperatures are hot(winter) & hotter(summer), no fans or very little circulation to help cool your body temperature. If you do choose to work here or you already do, I suggest investing in a cooling vest; like the military would wear in desert atmospheres.

Work-life balance: slightly improved with afternoon Saturday overtime being spread through the week instead of the short turn around, based on the body's learned circadian rhythm. It
  more... is shift work afterall. Switch over week is usually pretty difficult the first few days or so, although shifts are 2 weeks days & 2 weeks afternoons.  less
Pros
Money & benefits, if you make it to getting hired permanently. Easy, work. Best to keep to yourself for most pleasant work experience.
Cons
Low employee morale, mindless, physically demanding work, incredibly hot in conjunction with trying to keep up pace & ambient temperature, intimidating atmosphere/management.

management (GLs, AMs, AGMs) need to more carefully watch team supervisors. plenty of internal abuse between TLs and TMs.

Rotating shifts
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Kitchener, ON18 December 2017
If you don't like working rotting shots this is not the place you could like to work. Good environment but long hours and rotating shifts are hard on the body.

Repetitive Shift work
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, ON10 June 2017
The work is very repetitive and the employee moral is not that high. The pay is good but you need to consider is that worth long hours and shirt work.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
long hours, rumours, low moral, repetitive, no dental for 3 years
