    I worked at Transcontinental full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a great advancement structure, and really care about the employees. They offer great benefits healthcare, PTO, 401K with company match, and profit sharing. Very diverse workplace with an emphasis on team work. Their team based policy keeps everybody in close communication from entry level to upper management, and they truly listen to employee input in fact they encourage it.

    Cons

    Not many cons. I guess the only con is that most of the plant works night shift with a rotating schedule so you don't always work the same days. But it is predictable so you can easily plan for the days you are off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Transcontinental full-time

    Pros

    TC is a very driven and focused company. Their leadership at the top level is very good. Some of the best that I've had the privilege of working with. The CEO knew my wife and kids and asked about them whenever he seen me.

    Cons

    Promotions weren't always given to the best or most qualified. At least at the lower levels, promotions were many times given to a persons buddy or someone that they were good friends with instead of the most qualified.

    They are a good company to start with. They motivate and work with you to reach your goals, as long as they too share those goals. Follow the rules and you are fine.

    I have been working at Transcontinental full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The paying is good, lots of overtime, and good benefits.

    Cons

    Unfair treatment to the Employees, no appreciation for hardwork, bottom line the Boss have a favoritism especially in Markham Area, and the Bosses and Supervisor
     are crueless.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the Management in Quebec will send someone in Markham Area to investigate or ask each employees how they treat people especially the Supervisor in the morning she is so rude and no respect to the workers.And I hope they will do it anonymous because the employees are scared.
