Positive, Rewarding, Family Oriented

It's what you make it here, if you put in the hours and hard work, you'll be rewarded with a great pay and a long career. NO SLACKERS ALLOWED!!! The people that end up leaving disgruntled bring it on them selves and have poor attitudes. Respect, a good attitude, and hard work with a side of hustle will get you a long way! There are times when its all hands on deck and it can be stressful, but it helps build the team mindset and can feel like a victory. There's a lot of money on the line in repairs, fabrication, and getting parts and machines to the customers so in those moments its intense but understandable. Soft hands and a sad face doesn't work in this industry.

Pros

Great Benefits, Paid Holidays, Lots of inside perks.

Cons

Stay Clear of Sy Harrison

On aurait pus avertir

J'ai travaillé 1 mois la bas. Il mon mis dehors comme plein d autre car il manquait de job. Juste avertir 2 semaine d'avance aurais été bien mais non une journée paff plus de job. J'avais été oublier mais c'est les super employés qui on fait rappeler que j'étais nouveau au boss. Bref je conseille a personne. Avoir sus j aurais pris l'autre job offert. 6 ou 7 mois d'approbation. Tu paye le syndicat même si le temps d'approbation tu est même pas protégé. Tu payé un club social mes tu peu pas faire les activités quand tu est nouveau. Employer pas toujours travaillant. Plein de petit chef. Bref ne pas y aller

Pros

Aucune idée

Cons

Not very productive and not fun

Very uncomfortable and non energetic and could allow some kind of bullying. Work from 7:30 - 5:30pm...Workplace culture was awful and I would not recommend this company to my friends.

Credit manager

I manage 9 persons in Delson and 4 in Campbelville, I'm a person who like to teach my knowledge. Credit it's a passion for me, you never know each day what will happen and you must be very open mind to react at different situation.

over all ok job

The company mistreats people very badly. That being said the employees there are some of the literal best people i've ever mt in my life made some good friends there. the job itself is rough hard work but you gain a lot of muscle and people are always willing to help. The management would sometimes com in and steal your paper work and replace it with new paper work so always photocopy and keep a binder for yourself as they tend to try and blame you for office mistakes. Other than the one issue above the company wasn't that bad

Pros

Flexable, friendly workers

Cons

poor management, no heat or cold exceptions you work weather its boiling or freezing.

Small office environment

Small office, tight knit environment. Upper management is not located in the US so that makes things very difficult to make lasting changes that will impact future of the business. Just stick your head down and do the job they ask. Limited opportunities for promotion within the business. Great healthcare, 401k match, pto, and flexible working hours.

Environnement bruillant et physique

J'arrive a 6;45 le matin a la cafeteria pour y déposer mon lunch et remplir mes bouteilles d'eau. Je consulte le babillard pour voir les commandes qui sont a completer aujourd'hui et je sors a 7:00 dans la cours vers mon departement. Arrivé a mon departement le superieur nous fait un bref résumé du bois que nous allons piler et emballer aujourd'hui et 5 a 10 minutes plus tard la chaine est en marche. Nous pilons le bois dans des long "boggey" tout l'avant midi et l'après midi. A 15h je quitte mon departement , je ramasse mes effets personnel et je "punch" a 15:15

Pros

travail physique et demandant

Cons

courtes pauses

Excellent work environment and great people to work with.

It was a pleasure working for Goodfellow Inc. for the summer of 2014. Working outside in the yard getting the decking orders ready was a highlight for me.
