Great Place to Learn
Staff (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB18 octobre 2019
Great place to learn and get experience. If you show that you are willing to learn and put in effort, you will be appreciated. Benefits could be better, but better than nothing.

Did not like working here.
Brake and sheer (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB26 septembre 2019
Brake and sheer foreman is a condasending complete a hole and should be used as a sweeper cleaning the shop. He has no business managing people. He is ignorant and talks down to people and will stab you in the back the first chance he gets. I would not work here. You are at risk of losing your job at a moments notice. The foreman is not to be trusted. Stay away and flip burgers or anything else. Management is blind and takes the word of the foreman and you have no chance.

Safety issues, rude management, workflow issues
Shop worker (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB9 mai 2019
Pros:

- Some sort of security - if you enjoy everything discussed below and don't pretend for any wage raise - you will last there regardless your working skills
- Benefits. But they are in the cons list too. At least you get something
- Your hours and work schedule are predictable until some point discussed below.
- Most of the time it is inside job.
- No pressure until they fail on deadline.

Three biggest issues:

1) Safety - company which produces HVAC units can't figure out proper ventilation in the shop. Almost all the time you can fill and see in air - welding fumes, dust (filters never changed), paint vapors (yes, regardless the fact that they have dedicated paint booth they quite often paint big units right beside you). Unsafe overhead crane use practices, pure safety culture in assembling department due to lack of training. Safety lady on the floor is just for show. Sanitary condition is on the lowest level - washrooms are cleaned only once a week, constantly missing towels, soaps etc. For same reason lunchroom is messy too.

2) Management - rude, rude, rude. Don't care about employees until they fail to meet deadlines and want everyone to work "extra hours". Never pay overtime, use bank system. Push workers to use their bank hours whenever company wants, not employee. There is a feeling of segregation on "office workers" - superiors and "floor workers" - inferiors. They don't give any raise in wages for apprentices after their schooling, to the point that they don't bother themselves to give any excuse of doing that. Have seen many great and dedicated
  plus... guys leaving the company just because of that. There is a tendency to cut wages for existing employees. Medical benefits are expensive and simply suck. Picky about minor stuff like - watching with a clock when workers start their walk to washrooms to wash their hands at the end of the shift. Supervisor is getting after workers who are earlier by one single minute.

3) Workflow - have constant issues with supplying parts and materials. Some times it gets ridiculous - you cant finish your job because you miss minor parts which everyone can buy around the corner. This creates constant swings from super busy weeks with 10-12 hr shifts to very slow days when you can't find anything to do and days go painfully slow. That is when they push employees to use their bank hours by sending them home. Constantly changing their minds - be prepared to redo again and again your work. Drawings often are messed up - lots of mistakes and changes on the go gives another reason to redo your work. Lots of miscommunication between departments.

Poor Upper Management
Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB21 août 2017
Unfortunately, a lot of good effort is wasted on a company that doesn't recognize the effort put in by employees. Sometimes employees aren't even treated like people. As a supervisor, it is hard to motivate workers when any effort goes unnoticed and unrewarded. Paying for bebefits out of pocket, vacation pay paid out every payday, lack of diligence by upper management, and a constant "blame game" rather than constructive problem solving are some of many issues here. Employees are often asked to work large amounts of banked time and then management gets upset when they use the banked time.
Points positifs
None
Points négatifs

Horrible management, un organized and micro managed all the time. Sometimes very busy and makes the days go fast but when it is slow management picks on you and be-littles employees.
Every week there were new process to use and it was confusing.
staff is really stressed out and under paid.
