Engineer (Employé actuel) – Alberta – 4 février 2019
No opportunity for advancement. Safety is more important than profits or customers or staff until it costs a bit of money (even if it is a very large safety concern). Inventory has been reduced to the point where I can spend over a day trying to figure out how to get the right components for the customer where it should take 30min at most. Processes are constantly changing and never fully outlined so it is impossible to follow. Training rarely occurs so people struggle to do their jobs. Hiring staff for management pet projects occurs all the time and those staff don't have any work to do. Other staff way overworked and lacking the resources to be effective. Low-mid level managers have no power. Upper management makes decisions slowly and without knowledge of the details so they are the wrong decision. Have talked to other locations and they all have similar issues. It has been like this for about 5 years so it is well past time for them to have their stuff sorted out.
Good benifits but tainted by bureaucracy
Bureaucracy, too many complex processes, lots of workers hired to do nothing

Wajax is a big company but the managers are not hands on. The workers run the company under the company policies. staff is fun and friendly. The company is a industry leading in workplace saftey. Pay is good as well as medical plan for a Union position.

Do not waste your time with this company, is clearly on a downward slope and with the management that runs this place is obvious why. Non of the managers seem to have any experience with what are business is and have absolutely know idea how to manage this company. The only thing the management seems concered with is saving money to get themselves a big bonus at the end of the year. The pay is ok but definetly below the average. If they got rid of most of the managers and hired someone with some experience instead of someone with a degree that says they know what there doing this place would run a lot smother. They are not concered about getting customers or treating current customers properly we are slowly losing business to are competitors. the only perk for working here is the benefits are ok.
terrible mangement, low pay, you are treated as a number
