Mechanic (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 21 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.
Family oriented. Great learning work.
Most of the time management wants things done fast. No tool allowance. Layed off
Crane Operator & Loader Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 24 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.
Offered good family benefit packages
Lack of Management, Drama, they could careless about health and safety regulations or employees well being on job site
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 16 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"
Scale Operator (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 30 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.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 3 August 2017
The combination of personal life and work at Triple M Metal was very comfortable. My supervisors were fun to work with and knew what they were doing in every aspect. The pay was not that great but comfortable enough.
They had a kitchen where we could buy fresh breakfast and lunches.
Operator (Current Employee) – brampton – 10 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.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 12 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.
Cashier/Scale operator (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 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.
Long hours, management is a joke, absolutely no work life balance
heavy equipment operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton – 15 September 2015
Employees are treated poorly. Company puts Profits ahead of employee safety. Management is untruthful. Management will instruct employees to operate unsafe equipement conrary to provincial and federal Laws, eg. No machine guarding,
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 23 April 2015
The day started off challenging, with learning a lot of new stuff everyday. Management was very professional and precises in accordance to safety regulations. Was a generally fun experience with great co-workers. The hardest part of the job was working in the extreme weather conditions. The most enjoyable part of the job was, everyday you feel like you accomplished something, with opportunities everyday.
Skilled Labourer (Current Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 29 January 2015
A typical work day consists of doing daily mechanical checks on equipment, sort through non ferrous material, operate heavy equipment. I have learned different skills about safety of operating heavy equipment (ex Shredder) , lockout produces, health and safety regulations of the workplace. My management is very well organized and treat us well. I enjoy working with the management and co-workers, we are a good team. The hardest part about my job is sometimes it gets slow and there is not a lot of tasks that could be taken care of. I really enjoy being able to take part of being challenged daily with metal fabrication tasks and working on heavy vehicles.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 19 November 2013
I truly enjoyed working here decent crew and management.I was just starting to get trained on more heavy equipment when a work slow down caused my lay off. The hardest part off the job was when we got a real foggy night down by the bay you could hardly see.
