    I worked at New Flyer

    Pros

    They have a diecent starting wage, an ok bennifit package. Unionized so you have some but not much protection for automatic firings

    Cons

    They say that they are a "family" company. but you spend more time at the factory than with your family. alot of times we left the house at 6 am and didnt return til after 6 pm. aside from lower management, it was mid-management on up felt you were viewed as 5 year olds or slaves that should be spat on, absolutely no respect was given by themthey have an employee handbook that makes it VERY easy for you to get fired. you work in unclimate controlled environment durring summer and you end up working on busses that were just brought in from sub 0 degree weather. and since I left the company, they have implimented many policies that basically strangles production durring the shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this may get edited or removed but your middle level floor management in crookston is the worst I have ever seen. your HR director is very incompitent and definitely not a people person.

    Pros

    Good place for an engineer to learn about automotive systems.

    Cons

    The stupidest thing about New Flyer is that they make salaried employees punch a clock and harass you if you are late. The second stupidest thing related to the first thing is that the work hours are 7 am to 3:30 pm. So if you punch in at 7:03 am you are considered late. Call me high maintenance or stuck up but telling salaried staff they are 3 minutes late is stupid. Also add to the fact that they didn't pay out overtime. So in summary, as a salaried employee at New Flyer Industries you punch clock, your insubordinate if you come in late, don't get paid overtime, and the wages were crap. Add to the fact that your in Winnipeg Canada and what New Flyer attracts is people who really need a job afraid to take risks and afraid to be creative who keep their jobs if they stay inside the box. I thank them that they did employ me, but I wasn't happy there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your punching time clock/late policy for salaried staff.
