One of the better shops I've worked in and the fruits of your labor will be a part of history

In my time at Walters, I have increased the amount of certifications I hold.I have made amazing friends and memories.I have received fair pay increase and performance appraisal.I have learned a wealth of knowledge about the steel construction industry.I have helped fabricate countless tens of thousands of tons for structural steel projects spanning high-rise towers to mine shafts.It is rewarding to visit or point out recognizable pieces of infrastructure you helped create that will be standing 100 years from now.Fully loaded toolbox, Uniforms, PPE and an iPad are standard issue.

Pros

-workplace culture -profit sharing program -Quarterly meal events and company merch (jackets, mugs, gadgets etc.) -All time keeping, blue prints, crane inspection, HR services, company policy, procedures etc. are easy to interact with on the company issued iPad

Cons

-Located in the middle of nowhere -Engineering drawings are mostly computer generated, and can be illegible, missing dimensions/details at times

I am sorry to hear this is how you feel about your experience at Walters. Based on your review, it looks like we had to part ways, which is always a difficult decision and the one we don’t make lightly. It is unfortunate to see the comments about backstabbing, as it’s not what our culture is like. And yes, we are a family owned business with 65 years of success, where many employees also have their family members joining our team because of the great culture and stability at Walters.

Excellent company.

Everyone, from machine operator to Vice Presidents, are smiling. This company has created a culture that employers should strive to duplicate. All employees are helpful and obviously happy to work here.

Pros

Great management, great bonuses, lunches, breakfasts, happy work environment, Respectful work environment!

Cons

Can be a bit dusty but this is more because of the yard. The buildings have excellent ventilation.

Good place to work

I started on straight nights in may 2012,And did that for a couple months! Then i was put on days for more training, because i needed more training! Very pleased how Walters has helped me and gave me the time to learn more! I am now in my 8 year and I’m still enjoying everyday!

Pros

Office staff

Overworked, underpaid, long hours, not much room for advancement, as a new employee you're stuck under someone who's been there for longer but is less qualified so there is a lot of hypocrisy/back stabbing to keep their job secure, there is a sense of a friendly environment but the ones who dont care about that, use it to boss others around, everyone is everyone's boss, management mostly ignores this.

It's unfortunate to see the negative comments, but obviously there must have been a reason for you to feel like that. It is our goal to have an environment where people enjoy coming to work, building relationships and growing professionally, and your constructive feedback will help us look more closely and identify improvements we need to make. All the best to you! VP, People & Culture

Look elsewhere

Poor place to work, discrimination, favouritism, unsafe. Repetitive work, do not follow safety rules. Rude supervisor two faced, prejudice and back stabs everyone including management. No consistency on rate of pay. Need a real HumanResources department. Look for any other work but here. Move on it gets better elsewhere!

Greatest Company Worked So far

Best thing about Walters is the Company culture. People are frank and cooperative. Management is good. Stable but slow growth. No wonder it is one of the best management companies. Deserves 4.5/5 Stars.

Toxic

Rumour mill, favouritism, racism, harassment, inequality in pay rates. The boys club run the show. No real clue how to run a company the size they are turning into. Hundreds of hours wasted a week in rework and poor planning. Attitude towards women on the floor and minorities are pathetic. Racists posting pictures in the locker room and saying stuff out loud gets zero response from management. Safety is NOT number one, lots of talk but never action. There is no accountability for the favourites, just pass the buck and blame others. If you can eat it, suck it up, go along to get along and watch your fellow workers be degraded, Walters is the place for you!

Pros

unlimited OT (for now)

Cons

Everything else

Very safe company to work for

While I was working with Walters Group, had lots of support with any issues that came along. Management worked well with the labour force and looked after their workers, Would work for them again on any project.

Terrible place

Terrible place to work I was there for nine months and the 23rd person to leave in that time management is worried about looking like a bunch of Heroes more worried about donating money to charity then they are about the workers on the floor they are always hiring they will take anybody without any experience and there is a reason for that they are the only people that will go to that shop and stay no one with any experience will go there and stay any amount of time

Being shorted hours on pay

Don't recommend working here I worked at the rymal road plant and the boss is deducting 15min a day off people's time cards even though they are punching in on time if I punch in at 659am and I work till 4pm I should be paid for 8.5hours not 8.25. Very stressful place to work

Was nice while it lasted

Everyone that was there was really nice, lunches were a fun time, learned a lot about welding, fittings, and blueprint reading. I wish I could have gotten the apprenticeship at the end of it.

Successful in a competitive market for a long time

Walters is a very well known company, which has been successful in a competitive market for a long time. I would recommend this company to anyone. It's a great office environment with excellent staff and management. As innovative and efficient as they are there seems to be an unlimited number of products & projects to work on.
