Inside Sales Support in Ayr, ON
Immature, negative, not great at teaching
When I was first employed by Unilock it was a great experience, they were friendly and helpful, unfortunately upon return from winter layoff they were the complete opposite and made the working there very unpleasant.
Machine Operator in Ayr, ON
Fast paced and Physically Demanding
Unilock is a good place to work if your a young man looking to make some honest money. It can be very physically demanding @ times and it takes some time to learn the Machinery. Training could definitely improve. The culture is mixed pending on what plant your working in. With the long hours and expectations to produce stone in a timely manner you can expect a stressful environment sometimes. The Manager’s can be alright sometimes but given any situation you better be prepared to keep busy at all times. Do not expect to leave early regardless of break down’s, there is lots of concrete waiting to be chipped and lots to be cleaned. If you don’t like dust this job is not for you. It is very dusty at time’s and also dirty. You are given a mask so I would definitely use it. When it comes to benefits they are amongst the best, your family will be well taken care of. It is hard to advance as there are many employees waiting for that opportunity and some will step on your toes to get there. Just be prepared to work long shifts and to work hard.
Pros and many cons
Unilock has a great pension plan and Benefits plan. That's the only pros. The cons are: You work 55+ hours a week. If there is nothing to do they still don't let you leave. Management is probably the worst I've ever experienced. They just sit in their offices. No support on the floor. No idea how to run anything so no support on troubleshooting. New guys get paid as much as veteran employees. To move up you need to be a yes man with no backbone. If they changed out management it'd be a great place to work. But no.... They promote the weak minded fat guys.

General Labourer/Forklift Operator in Georgetown, ON
Hard work and detail oriented job.
Start up the machines/ mixer, oil shutes. I would bring product in and out of the warehouse, tag product, and do inventory. Circle safety checks on all forklifts.
I learned how to operate a fork lift very well, time management skills, and mix operation as well as inventory.
Management was professional, mind you there was a lot of micro- management happening within the workplace leading to contradictions. The workplace culture was professional, clean, and well mannered.
Standing for 12 hour shifts was the most difficult part of the job. Operating the forklift was the most enjoyable part.
