Target oriented, each team member was responsible for their station and willing to help another team member to clear the bottleneck situation.
The hardest part of the job was to acquire all parts to start the line production - it helped to improve my communication skill and planning skill so that i have all the parts in advance before the line starts. The most enjoyable part of the job was the happiness our team member feel when we achieve the target with minimal errors.
Great workplace for people who are planning of long term employment. Challenging for new employees but you get a chance to prove yourself. Multi cultural and you get to meet lots of people with long experience.
I enjoyed working at Celestica. Made many friends with whom i still enjoy very good relations.I was never satisfied with compensation paid. Very often we were sent on forced leave due to shortage of work.
The time I spent at Celestica, was a very valuable experience, because I was able to apply my knowledge in Engineering, and expand my knowledge in the field. Adding to that, I had great project management experience, and I was able to gain experience in project management.
The yearly bonus is good if you perform well.
There are some good people there.
If you're young, you will find that there are a lot of interns here. If you're more experienced, you will realize that this can lead to an unprofessional work culture at times.
Company is rife with politics.
Some members of management are VERY incompetent and like to push work to other departments.
They pay their employees poorly.
Lots of people are very reluctant to help on projects across teams - there is an ownership problem.
This company runs like a supply chain company - if you are in an engineering role, you will probably be doing close to NO engineering. Not a good learning experience and unless you want to just be paper-pushing, look elsewhere.
Advice to management:
It is your job to be preventing company politics, not to be participating in it.
It’s a nice place to work if you’re not looking for job security or advancement... Seniority doesn’t exist so when layoffs come you know it’s personal... nothing heavy, it’s not fast paced... super relaxed and chilled... no real certifications, everything has cheat sheets...
After working here, I will never fly again...
Worked at the solar panel for soldering and coordinating with others.
I learned to be resourceful and strategic and quick thinking.
Management was informative and helpful
My co-workers were easy to work with and helpful and pleasant
They hire and let go a ton of people each month. Work culture is low with so much turnover. Moved many production lines to Asia so they lay off groups of people without notice, very low job security. Don't even offer a chance in another department. Don't really care about their employees.
Pay is low compared to other companies. Force you to work less than 40 hours. Don't manage their labour well at all, some people overworked some underworked. Training that everyone receives is mostly useless in regards to what you actually do. Dead end job with no room for advancement. Lots of favouritism and seniority.
Only enjoyable part of the job is socializing with coworkers during breaks.
