Toxic environment @Gateway, Mississauga
Maintenance Technician (Ancien employé) – Mississauga, ON – 1 décembre 2018
Worked as a technician (Maintenance mechanic) at Gateway Canada Post facility at Mississauga for 3 years.
A typical day would start with a brief 5 minutes meeting where tasks are distributed.
I did not learn anything useful to my career in my 3 years there, a lot of my tasks used to be vacuuming and cleaning machines, definitely worth my university degree.
Management is purely abusive, toxic, full of vindictiveness, politics (a lot more than any average company I worked for) and every person in the building knows who they are. Years of battle with the workers union CUPW implement a culture of screwing over as much as you can your workers, micro managing, ignoring real life complaints and issues.
Culture is toxic environment, cameras anywhere, lack of trust, rumors everywhere, lack of communication, abuse of power. (10 Superintendents quit in my 3 years, and roughly 30 technicians)
The toughest part in the job was dealing with non ignorant mangers and superintendents, lack of appreciation, vindictive bosses, abuse of power and trust dealing with very high level turnover.
Most enjoyable part was my last day.
