      people are friendly, there is a family type atmosphere .

      Cons

      pay is below standard. It makes turn over high as good people go elsewhere for better paying jobs.

      Advice to Management

      bring wages up to a more fair standard. I feel like I am playing a loosing battle of catch up. Pension benefits would be valuable as well.

      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Canada Metal (Pacific) full-time

      High control over processes with ERP system, when it works. Management team is skilled, but lacks horsepower to actually implement improvements Shop-floor leadhands are the best in the business, but are crippled by upper management decisions. A wide variety of expensive machines with an impressive amount of unused capacity.

      Cons

      All Quality documentation managed by an Excel spreadsheet. PDM system implementation not taken seriously, and postponed indefinitely due to lack of manpower to implement Underpaid and aging workforce is largely "grandfathered-in" - poor performance and no desire to biopsy poor employees from workforce establishes job security for poor performers. This demoralizes some incredibly talented employees within the company,...

Eliminate poor performers. By continuing to employ people who underperform constantly, capable employees lose drive to raise...
