Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 18 December 2018
Poo wage Poor shifts Decent co workers (personality wise not work ethic) Bad managment Poor equipment Poor organization No room to grow Very high turnover Long contract Easy to the point you can do it with your eyes closed but somehow people always make mistakes. You can hit green lights for yourself alll day long and still be under quota because others arent working with you.
Some times you can go home early if you get your quota.
3 out of 4 lines get to go home but your stuck on the line with the slackers
Materials Services Worker (Former Employee) – Leslie, SK – 6 June 2013
-consistent hours -shift work (6:30am - 3:00 pm or 4:00pm - 12:30am) -management were strict but relatively flexible when they needed to be -co workers were mostly men, all good people -the hardest part of the job was running around for 8 hours -the most enjoyable part was losing weight from working so hard
Some what laid back attitude with major focus on safety
Laborour (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 19 February 2015
Eight hour shifts with two week rotations of day/night shift. Was a multicultural work place with fresh perspectives. Working was not hard at all and, once you got safety down you could excel at your task.
If everyone got above and, beyond quota you could leave early with pay
Two week day/nights could mess with your sleep pattern

Inventory Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 8 December 2012
Come in circle meeting daily discuss issues that may have occurred and what is going on for the day. Head back to your work station, dicuss what needs to be completed for the day in your dept. If any issues come up discuss with management of dept and get them resolved asap. Discuss with coworkers of the dept and see if they have any input on issues and work together as a team to resolve them. Get parts in on a deadline for production to go out on time so we do not hold up our customer. Everyone pulls together when a problem occurs and works together to get it resolved so that we do not shut down our customer. You become as a family and your dept and other departments to get the item out on time. Management also gets involved to get things done on time.As I said its one happy family.
enjoyed the free lunches on all occasions, and dept managers taking associates out for a lunch for all the hard work done for the year.
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) – Newmarket ON – 27 September 2013
A typical day at work: Great understanding of production that had to be done, 2 10 mins breaks 1 30 mins break. Making our number 405, making sure the seats are built with a lot of caution to make sure it will be safe for Honda.
What I learnt there: How to build a seat from just frame, different tools such as: tor-wrench, drill, marking work when finished, soft hammer.
Management: Was not the greatest, thing were not handle properly when is came to an issue towards co-workers,
Your co-workers: Amazing co-workers, you would just want to go to work to be around them. Very supportive and a lot of team work.
The hardest part of the job: The hardest part of the job was nothing really because challenge gets you very far and helps you learn and prove that you really want the job and very interested
The most enjoyable part of the job: was not being forced to work at everyone's speed, you can take your time to understand the production and speed will come on its way. I would also say the people that worked all around the factory making the building very welcoming.
amazing people, fast work, learning new skills
