J’ai travaillé sur un quart de travail de jour à 3 jours de 12:30 par jour pour 37:30 par semaine. J’ai appris à produire avec un haut niveau de qualité. Avec Transcontinental j’ai appri à travailler sur des travaux demandant de la gestion d’employer et beaucoup de logistique pour les executer.
Fast pace work environment. Challenging deadlines to meet. Continental shift work. Days and nights. Long hours. Arrived at work on time and signed in at the punch clock. Changed into uniformand releaved prior shift on the press i work on. Did my job for 12 hours with 2 breaks and 1 lunch period.
The 12 hour rotating shifts , working every other weekend is a challenge for you and your family life. Managment needs a physiatric evaluation. They pick there favorite ego strokers for the higher paying jobs. Despite the collective agreement says seniority is the deciding factor. The top end people make most of the money while the bottom end people do most of the work. Managment does not notice hard work
Too much a boys club in sales. Had to fight to get an internal position. A lot of inter company "relations" too much micro managing and if you've been there a long time they only listen to those people not the newer or younger employees.
Good people there is a lot to learn. Typical day monitoring flyers all shift and doing maintenance and making sure press stays running. Over 18 years of printing i learned a lot from people and taught alot of people.
I enjoined the time off we got. We had a lot of overtime. Easy to learn new things and additional aspects of other jobs. Some supervisors/management had favourites. A lot of bad attitude and lack of communication.
I'm gonna be honest the HR of this company is very respective and a good person, she cares about every employee safety, concerns and issues. but when you meet the management that manages the machines and the production floor, you will be disgusted. They are very rude and make you work like a slave from beginning of your shift until the end of your shift. This company has a potential but the management is absolutely horrible (which is the problem) and also you don't get trained properly and have to learn everything on the fly.
productive work place. enthusiastic management and co workers. hardest part about this job was the noise from machines. the most enjoyable part was working with such a well rounded crew of good people.
The company has a strong competent team, friendly and healthy work environment and is well established. The management team is strong, mature and driven. Compensation is relatively low, the industry is declining and advancement is tough at this stage.
Good culture, Team building, Strong Controls and Management
Huge Printing Plant-makes lots of pamphlets and flyers for multinational corporations. Workplace culture was very warehouse oriented. Job offered fantastic salary & benefits, however hours can be long and demanding. Requirements include 6, 12 hour days, both day and night shifts in the same week. Best part of the job was the people you work with. Hardest part of the job was the physical expectation.
Transcontinental has great staff who work extremely hard. I had a great supervisor during my time there and learned a lot from her. The staff there were great and allways made everyone feel welcome. There is a great work/life balance there.
Lead Press Apprentice (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 12 novembre 2018
Great place to work and strive if you work hard and stay focused. I know guys who will stay working there their whole lives and do well. Hours are not for everyone however, switch back nights/days 12 hours a days is hard to manage.
Co-workers very friendly and often helpful. Workplace safe and comfortable. Management changes far too often to maintain any continuity of leadership. Because the company is publicly owned, its main priority is shareholder satisfaction with little or no regard given to employees. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the lack of quality control in finished products. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with co-workers.
Safe and comfortable workplace with friendly staff
Often too much work expected from individual in regular hours
