This is a good place to work. I get along well with my team. Have definitely learned a lot since I started here. Every day is a new challenge and I enjoy coming to work. We recently celebrated Pink Shirt day at work and organized a bake sale.
My co-workers are great, the work itself is not terrible. That atmosphere is usually fairly relaxed.The people from management that I deal with are decent. Pay is low, and benefit rate seems high for single person.Not sure about advancement.
Get hired to one shift, and get bumped down to another. Get told one thing and have another happen. Basically don't expect any flexibility. Expect to have to do 3 people's jobs on 1 persons wage. But don't expect a wage increase. Also don't expect parking for employees to be available. Instead; expect to be threatened with being towed if you park in the "guest" sspoemptsitsemptemptymost every
I like to work at Wesgar as everyday is completely different. There are always challenges and creativity needs to be used to be competitive and efficient. It is a privilege to work and learn from upper management. Time to time you can feel the adrenaline but you are surrounded of great people who has been with the company for many years and certainly willing to assist you the best they can. There is always room for improvement and managers welcome any suggestions you may have. Wesgar is well known in the industry for its quality, so you can learn the craft from some of the best people!
Not a lot of options if you take public transit.
Overall a great place to work. Despite some of the negative reviews, there is a lot of room for advancement here, but it's up to you to work at it and prove your value to the company. If you have no prior experience, you can't expect to start at the top. There are a lot of different things to learn here, and a large variety of product being manufactured here. The phasing-in of automated equipment and robotics means that things are always changing and always interesting. The work environment is fast-paced and the work is often challenging, but at the same time it's a pretty relaxed workplace.
Management usually tries to accommodate employees' schedules
Management is often too lenient with regards to enforcing policies or procedures
The working conditions were good. Staff were universally polite. Management was competent, considered what you were telling them, and dedicated to making the workplace safe and productive. I have met many People who have worked for Wesgar and we have all felt that it was a positive experience.
Friendly work environment
Hearing protection required
10 years in this company and wasn't able to earn a "living wage" for vancouver living status. management wants the company to grow but it is simply not possible with the wages they are paying. Do not waste your time here. There are much better opportunities out there without post secondary education.
Verbally abusive, under paid, over worked, promise of profit shares but never a profit, demanding, but is it up to you. They made a lot of promises that they did not keep, and called me a cancer for pointing out to others that were underpaid.
