    I have been working at Arclin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone, including the Leadership Team, is engaged and willing to work hard to insure we're successful.

    Cons

    Really no negatives. If you have to work for a living, this location is a wonderful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what we're doing. Which is continuous improvement.

    I worked at Arclin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work outside, with lots of exercise

    Cons

    For what you do, the pay isn’t that great. One Supervisor is degrading and harassing to employees, and does not get along with the other Supervisor. They enjoy talking about safety but do not fix things readily and no one follows the safety rules and are not disciplined. Operators lie about getting hurt, or do not report it due to fear of being fired. Very low moral with most looking for other jobs. Have a couple bully operators that threaten people. I have a proven disability and after discussing it with my manager, I was told that if I couldn’t perform a certain task, they had no need for me. Yet there were other operators that had no disability who were not required to perform the task. So favoritism is also a problem. Do not work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Change

    I have been working at Arclin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing production floor team! They are running very lean and have picked up a lot of shifts to enable runability.

    Great schedule for the production floor employees.

    Great benefits

    Cons

    Management gets too many projects dumped on them at the sites. Please let them complete the previous project before the next one starts!

    Advice to Management

    Hire at least 1 more person per shift. (4 in total) These folks are getting tired out and need some help covering shifts!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    None! They ran off all their good employees. Their Canadian leadership team is 30 years behind the times! No wonder that the employees are trying to unionize.

    Cons

    This is a horrible company. Their leadership, led by Russ Taylor, is atrocious! He is a rabid CEO, with no leadership skills.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to competent owners!

    I worked at Arclin (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours aren't bad most of the time, some travel

    Cons

    No money in company -> lower salary, less coworkers so tasks/responsibilities increased 3x fold with little guidance, managers don't manage and instead have their own mountains of work. No culture, people are boring/slow, lot of politics.

    I worked at Arclin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a great deal in short period of time. If yo are willing to move to the headquarters you will have the chance to advance, if yo really would want it.

    Cons

    Very confrontational upper management. The public berating of other employees to me appears very unprofessional and comes off as just plain old bullying. It really appears that few there know anything of modern management techniques. They preach a culture of leadership styles that is printed on a poster but show very little of the principles that are on the poster. many positions in the corporate office appear to be a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise to change your was and treat your people better in general but it falls on deaf ears. No one at the headquarters wants to hear it.
