Zero Opportunity for Advancement
Welder (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 31 janvier 2017
Long term shop employee.
Pay is good, learned a lot of skills over the years and became quite versatile. Owner is pleasant to work for, foremen are helpful. However...............
Shop level management is sub par and unknowledgeable of actual processes or procedures in many area's, nepotism and favortism runs rampant, nearly zero opportunity for advancement, negative shop culture, under cutting on safety and health (air mover in a welding shop not being functional for over a year due to poor planning and delegation), cluttered shops, dirty, mechanical issues put off on machines, preventative maintanence schedules nearly non existent, retention of TFW's while laying off long term employees, disorganization and a culture of intimidation.
The shop will pay the bills and pay them quite well, however, dreading going to work for very little real reward and hard work going unrecognized without becoming hockey buddies with direct shop management make shop employment within this company not so beneficial.
Positive for learning many different skills in a short period of time, not worth sticking out for the long haul. Better options are readily available.
Bump pay even though it's a union shop.
Zero opportunity for advancement, unknowedgeable management, nepotism, negative employment culture
