Dont bother
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC17 August 2019
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

A great place to work, particularly if you're motivated
Engineering Technologist (Current Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC4 April 2019
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.
Pros
Management usually tries to accommodate employees' schedules
Cons
Management is often too lenient with regards to enforcing policies or procedures

much better jobs out there
CNC Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC9 October 2017
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.

Great Place to work but...
Pemmer (Current Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC23 January 2017
This is a great place to work with great pay and advancement opportunities. However, this is a rough culture for most people. But for the right person it would be very easy to make friends and family here.

welder (Former Employee) –  Port Coquitlam, BC12 July 2013
The company puts out highly polished piece at a high standard.
its the in between that sucks.
Employees are in a rat race and will screw you over to forward themselves. They will literally blame you for their mistakes, keep making the same mistakes and pushing it on you.
Some of the employees do cocaine at work and leave you to pick up the slack.
Cons
hostile work enviroment
