Unless you are family you are treated like garbage
Scale Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON2 November 2018
Working here was like working with a bunch of guys who peaked in high school.. rude, offensive and vulgar language used daily by staff, no organization
No scheduled breaks if any... salary wasn’t terrible but what good is that with no job security.

They hire family memebers and if you are not one of them.. you are disposable and they make sure you know it.
Pros
Work alone, drivers are amazing
Cons
Management is a joke, so dirty, male dominated environment

Great place to work management is a joke
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON20 September 2018
Triple m as a whole is a okay company. Pay isn't that good but it's steady hours. Management on the other hand needs a total do-over their ignorant rude and don't care about there employees everyone who is a operator or labour are good people and willing to help each other out. But forget about the foreman

'Don't Feed The Animals'
Crane Operator & Loader Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON24 June 2018
The position itself is great , however they don't practice what they preach especially when it comes to health& safety at work,they don't care about their teams well being.There deceptive in so many ways they will often make you do things that are not in your job description.
Management is a joke or lack of it, its like being in high school with all the drama, you can't just go to work and do your job without everyone wanting to know your business.

Most enjoyable part of job was finding treasures even if you couldn't keep them.
Pros
Offered good family benefit packages
Cons
Lack of Management, Drama, they could careless about health and safety regulations or employees well being on job site

Fun and family oriented work plalce.
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON21 March 2018
Great place to work and learn. The management treats workers like family. Alot of equipment is in need of repairs. Which good to be a mechanic. Abit dirty place. But they provide masks and gloves. If you don't mind getting dirty. Wages are negotiable. Only no tool allowance.
Pros
Family oriented. Great learning work.
Cons
Most of the time management wants things done fast. No tool allowance. Layed off

Great people. Management is a joke.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON16 March 2018
Every person I worked with at the Dofasco Triple M location were great. Other then the management. The employees around you will help you with everything you need and if you ask management for help, well good luck because it won't happen. The management at this location is terrible and they love to fire people like crazy. I watched 4 people get fired in the 3 months it was all for small mistakes they made. ( Minimum to no training) you get shown on your first day the area and pretty much told " good luck".

The comments made by other employees when I asked why they let so many people go, so close to their probation period ending, they said " Thats the Triple M way"
Pros
Friendly, kind employees
Cons

Great company. Impatient, mean supervisor
Scale Operator (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON30 August 2017
Supervisor isn't nice, no patience at all when I made errors even though I was new. Coworker was okay but quiet. Mainly trained by coworker. Only male. I don't think men should apply for this position. Salary is okay.
Pros
Benefits, pension, salary
Cons
Long hours no time for yourself

Long Term Employee
Operator (Current Employee) –  brampton10 March 2017
This review is based on almost 10 years of service with the company, NOT short term employment. The scrap industry can be challenging, it’s not for everyone, but it is rewarding. Through the years, there have been opportunities for advancement for those who are willing to put in the work. Like any other workplace, you get out what you put in and you have to be realistic with your expectations. I enjoy working for Triple M.

Great company, horrible work/life balance
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 September 2016
The company itself is not bad. Unfortunately senior management expects you to jump everytime. There is no work life balance. Communication needs to be addressed.
Very fast paced, learn new things everyday, co-workers are great just too many politics, customers could be a little unruly, day went by fast due to the nature of the business.

Management is a joke
Cashier/Scale operator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON8 June 2016
There is no work life balance. Management is a complete joke. The general staff knows more than management. They belittle people. They intimidate. If you say no, you're blacklisted. They'll make you quit and make your life miserable. Horrible place to work.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, management is a joke, absolutely no work life balance
