Wajax is a big company but the managers are not hands on. The workers run the company under the company policies. staff is fun and friendly. The company is a industry leading in workplace saftey. Pay is good as well as medical plan for a Union position.

Absolute donkey show

TERRIBLY RUN COMPANY; langley location is run by a bunch of halfwits, union and management does not seem to care about employees (especially apprentices; goodluck trying to learn anything) Pay is way too little and they don’t bother negotiating raises, unions does nothing to support its workers.Management is two faced and they like to lie a lot, goodluck trying to get them to help you out. Management does nothing to teach apprentices, or acclimatize apprentices to systems or work policies, kinda just get thrown to the wolves. Wouldn’t even recommend this job to my worst enemy because they don’t deserve this type of screw around.

Pros

Shop guys are a really really good group

Cons

Literally everything

Corrupt Management & Union Corporate Cronism

If you're in trades it's union job and union benefits. Union is a joke. No standards in hiring, training and firing. Corruption at every level. Top heavy company. Too many administrators for a small crew who does most of the heavy lifting. Safety is another joke. They use safety as a card t fire and suspend people. They don't encourage reporting injuries. But they say they care. Half of the guys are in light duty all the time to get away from jobs or getting fired.

Pros

Decent pay for union trades

Cons

Full time unreal drama, Few old guys run rings around management and all new guys, Management never figure out where the trouble comes from, Unqualified managers and unloyal workers

Horrible boss and company

Wouldn't recommend wajax to anyone very ride staff and when you complain to manager nothing happens. To many leaders that are/not leaders. Union and non union same building so nothing but problems

Do not apply. Negative, unorganized and mismanaged.

Very high turnover rate. 27 - 28 mechanics over a few years. If you are a quality HD mechanic don't bother applying. You will hate shop supervisor. He loves his chips and never waddles out from behind his desk. There is no quality control on the new machines that they sell. Their clientelle doesnt get machines repaired there after the warranty is up. Very few engine, pump, motor or component rebuilds. Mostly contracted out. Poorly run by the lip service in the front and corner office. You know who you are. Retire or move on both of you. DO NOT APPLY...

Pros

Cheque doesnt bounce

Cons

All of it.
