Nowhere to go if you are a temp

I'm not sure what I was expecing, but I was hoping this would not be on your-feet 8 hr shift. As it turned out, being on your feel all day long DID matter; if you were doing data entry, only, apparently you looked like you were "lazy" if you kept siting down to ease your feet discomfort. In short, they were no different than any other factory you'd apply for elsewhere.

Not Bad

Its not a bad place to work with. Lots of good guys to be friends with but not all. Some employees act like they're supervisors. Then theres a supervisor who is always losing his mind over down times, and thinks he will get fired with one mistake.

Pas facile

Aucun travail d’équipe entre employés.Les employés sont souvent laisser à eux même.Difficile d’avoir des renseignements pour le travaille.Horaire de 12 h de nuit très fatigant.

Old boys club

The company is overall a good company local management is an old boys club and cannot be trusted. If you’re not in the click with the management than you are constantly under threat of being let go

Fast - paced but not stressful. Schedule is 3 crews shifting. Days, afternoons and evenings

Co-workers and employees are fun to work with. Good benefits. I wish the scheduling was permanent and rotating. Most of the management are understanding and listens to the employees except for one certain management staff

Not worth the time

Unless your family or have family in the company you will not get a promotion.so many people left the last two year and management see them as just a body that can be replaced

Environnement de travail collaboratif et relaxe par moment.

Environnement de travail collaboratif et compétitif en tout temps. Notre compagnie est toujours à la recherche d' élargir notre portefeuille client, nous devons nous surpasser en conséquence en innovant, en apportant diverses solutions à nos clients. Ceci grâce aux nouvelles machineries de production et de procédés bien spécifiques à notre volonté de vouloir rester #1

Good pay. Rotating shifts. Be quiet

Good pay, benefits etc. Rotating shifts tho. Must learn fast.They'll tell you to report any injury no matter how small. DO NOT REPORT ANYTHING. Once you do you're on the chopping block. Learn fast or else.Be ready to be on the wrong end of the gossip machine. MAD Shift rotation every week. Pay is good and every week. Union shop.Cons outweigh the pros.

Good working environment

Work in different shifts, learned to operate different kinds of machines, good management, nice place to work with and a very clean invironment, working under pressure especially misunderstandings with some supervisors and co - workers, getting along well with your co- workers!

Cons

Working continental shifts like twelve hours

Beaucoup de liberté pour évolué

Vous pouvez évoluer dans un contexte sécuritaire, avec un salaire supérieur à la moyenne. La plupart des dirigeants sont censés.

Pros

Assurance, salaire, sécurité

Not a bad place to work

Solid place to work, there's a union that pays the operator positions way higher then anywhere else in the region. Downside is a lot of complaints about the machines get ignored by management until its to late.

Pros

Good entry wage

Cons

Boring some days

Usine mal administré ( mont - royal)

Une grosse entreprise, malheureusement, j'ai travaillé dans une usine de( ●Montréal mont royal● pendant 2 ans )sous le contrôle de fonctionnaires qui n'ont pas d'expérience, et ils prennent des décisions hors de la réalité, ils font venir de nouveaux travailleurs étrangers au Canada pour les exploiter parce qu'ils ne connaissent pas les lois, ils n'écoutez pas leurs travailleurs, malheureusement,ce proverbe s'applique ( les forts éliminent les faibles), Des fonctionnaires qui n'arrivent pas à diriger l'établissement sur la bonne voie. Chaque fonctionnaire a peur de perdre son emploi et s'efforce de conserver sa place. Les travailleurs sont adressées beaucoup a cause les procédures insensées. Personnellement, je demande aux hauts fonctionnaires d'intervenir et de faire des ajustements au niveau de l'administration , merci

Cons

Rémunération, shift stressant, administration très tres faible

Environnement de travail compétitif mais stressant

Les jobs qu'on y trouvent sont superbes ainsi que les avantages sociaux. Le seul hic, beaucoup de politique interne, vieilles mentalités à changer. Mais ceci tant à s'améliorer peu à peu avec l'arrivée d'une nouvelle direction, nouveau staff et des associés venus d'ailleurs. Pour réussir ici et gagner plus, il faut être focusé, persévérant malgré les difficultés, il faut vouloir montrer une volonté constante à apprendre. Ainsi se montrer dévouer pour le métier auquel on a appliqué.

Pros

Cafétariat avec repas chaud sur place

Cons

Courtes pauses, plus de parties de Noël à cause de la Covid-19

Environnement néfaste

Environnement hostile et tendu. Évitez à tout prix, cette entreprise merdique. Vous allez être gravement déçu, les machines sont désuetes et les dirigeants est le bas de gamme de gestionnaire d'une entreprise. Les employés ne sont pas considérés à leur juste valeur. On vous traite comme un moins que rien. Environnement bruyant et en été il fait extrêmement chaud très difficile à travaillé. En conclusion, si vous êtes une personne avec des compétences veuillez éviter à tout prix, cette entreprise.

Pros

Rien
