Excellent environnement de travail, mais...
Le bureau de Cleaver-Brooks à Terrebonne, QC, offrait un excellent environnement de travail et un bon esprit d'équipe, mais la haute direction, venant de Thomasville GA, nous mettait en compétition, et souvent en conflit les uns contre les autres. C'était malsain. Ceci était entre 2016 et 2017 et je crois que cela a changé maintenant. En 2014-2015, le bureau de Terrebonne était plus autonome et c'est pourquoi l'esprit à cet endroit était meilleur.

HR never fails to disappoint
Cleaver Brooks is taking the wrong direction. They used to be a great company (in Ontario) and one of THE places to work as a welder if you wanted to become an experienced fitter and / or high pressure welder. Not any more. HR is an extension of lazy and ruthless management and Engineering is a joke. Pay is poor and backstabbing is routine at this place

Good company with great people
Great place to work. The people are nice for the most part. The pay and the benefits are above average.Cleaver-Brooks is a conservative US company, own by an private investment group (Harbour Group) looking to make maximum profit with minimal investments.Departments are working in silos. This creates some conflicts where the objectives are different. There are a company Mission, Vision and Core Values in theory but there is not enough will to implement them or to live by them. It would help to resolve some conflicts.
Do you like time off between june and September? Do you like to work hard and advance for a company that makes million a year? Do you miss more than 4 days a year due to children or sickness? Do you like never being able to make more money than 2 dollars more an hour than you started at? If you answered yes to any of these this is not the place for you. Do you like seeing your friends fired because they maybe dodnt swipe out at lunch(yup happened this week to a coworker)Please save yourself the headache and move on. The union has 0 pull with the company and the guys are walked all over. Half of the workers dont put in a days work and get away with it daily. Management will harass you for notes and documentation after your 4th eday of the year. You have to have your holidays in for june july Aug and Sept by the end of march and you probably wont get them because the high seniority guys get those first. It's an awful environment but the people a great to work with.

Poorly managed and 0 accountability
This is one of the most ridiculous places I've ever seen or heard of. If you're a guy/girl that loves hanging out in the crapper for hours a day or comes in just to hangout and produce 0 this is the place for you. Weve doubled our worl force in just a few years and 0 has happened to change this. The majority of the guys are great to work with but they dont actually work... supervisors and management rip and grind the workers while everyone else just hangs out and pretends to hey something done. If you're a good worker and work hard move on this isnt the place for you. You'll be expected to do more than everyone else. Management has 0 respect for welders and their trades. We have numerous people that just stand around because theres not enough work.
