Good place to work overall, most staff were friendly, work expectations were not too hard, work hours were flexible. I would recommend this company, but needs better management

Bonuses and benefits

Cons

Staff gossip too much and a lot of egos floating around

Toxic workplace. Poor quality plant manager.

Couldn't pay me enough to go back. Always washing paint off. It gets everywhere. Day supervisors don't really know how to lead and always have excuses.

Progressive company with various opportunities to advance career goals.

Daily activities included business development and sales growth through cold calling businesses across Canada as well as looking for growth opportunities within the companies that we had business with already. The division I worked with was a lot like a large family and we all worked together to ensure the corporate goals were met annually. A high point would be the opportunities to travel periodically for annual sales meetings.

Pros

Growth opportunities, and support if you wanted to advance your education. Reward for accomplishment on an annual basis

Cons

At times you are required to put in long days or travel while on your time, so you're available to meet customers from coast to coast in Canada

Share your experience to help others

Poor leadership with very little training, poor time management far to many meetings .

Living in the past , management say if we do the same thing every year , you will get the same result . They continue to do that every year them selves . Make promises and never follow through .

Pros

Great people that work there

Cons

Long hours, under paid . Time in lieu can never be taken, under staffed

Fabrication de coil

Risque élevé en zone seveso, Les règles et consignes de sécurité sont appliqués si la production le permets : peu de production = risque faible ; beaucoup de production = risque élevé et surtout on ferme les yeux car on va plus vite. Tout ceci engendre des accidents que l'on cache à l'encadrement : brulure chimique (pied, main) , main sans gants de protection dans des solvants toxiques (chef d'équipe), port du masque absent au dessus des cuves de solvant toxique. Bref, je recommande si vous êtes bien former en chimie et surtout si vous savez dire non, a certain ordre dangereux ! Travailler ce n'est pas mourir ou finir handicapé...

Pros

Le salaire

Cons

The perks were great. Paid time off, matched 401 K, Bonuses.

this was a great company to work for. However, when the acqusition came it did not matter how long your tenure was nor what you had achieved for the company mattered. 350 of the territory managers and regional managers were laid off..

Pros

Company Car, Free lunches, and dinners, Company credit card.

Cons

a lot of travel.

Productive fun work environment but no room for growth

Loved working here but there was no room for growth. I liked the managers and learned a lot from them. Other co-workers were petty and there were a lot infighting.

Average Workplace

Average place to work, typical office environment. Medical and Dental were very good, the pension plan was world class. Management had a high turnover, making your goals hard to anticipate from year to year. But overall a good place to work.

Pros

Steady Work

Cons

Dress Code

Good team, unfortunately, management is lacking

what the that the tow times it goes on like that for as long as rabbits get their milk and burners with the pop up cowboy tissues ahoy, ahoy - cookies and cream and milk to run.

What could be a great place to work has too many flaws

The biggest issue is the work/life balance. If you are an overtime lover, this place is a dream come true. If, like me, you would prefer to put in an honest 40 hours with occasional overtime, this is not that place! We are currently working nearly every Saturday, getting mandatory 10 hour shifts 3-4 days a week, every week. They add overtime with little to no notice, and hold your weekends hostage, which is not ethical. Last week, we had to wait until 6:00 a.m. on Friday to find out whether or not we have to come in Saturday, which is not right and against their own policy. Overtime is a fiasco with the 10 hour shifts, as there is simply not enough equipment for everyone, and everyone is in everyone else's way. You simply cannot be productive until the other shift leaves. The fork lifts are falling apart and constantly broken down, and most have no scales on them (despite weighing materials being a constant and important part of the job). So you get slowed down constantly because of the fact people take the forklift from you, or have material in your way. The job itself is honest work, and it would be almost enjoyable if not for the issues. Too much overtime on too short of notice, equipment issues, favoritism, management inconsistency, some of the workers, and a proven ability for certain people to get away with mistreating others. Not to mention the environment, which is very hot and uncomfortable. There are a lot of great people, and people very willing to help others. But there are a lot of people, particularly on 1st shift, that think they "rule the roost", - 

Pros

Some awesome people, work is not too bad

Cons

The hours, holding your weekend hostage, some of the workers, can get very hot, machinery is not the best

Employment at Valspar

It is a very busy and fast and fast paced environment. You have very little or no help to run your complete line, from keeping your line supplied with material, line operations, to packaging and labeling for shipment. Pay is on the low side of the scale. Benefits are good. Work environment is good.

Pros

Inside temp control work environment

Cons

Pay
