Good place

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I dig it here. I love to weld so it’s not really “work” and the days go by fast. We are union so that has its pros and cons. Feeling the stress of upcoming contract negotiations now. Just being left it a state of wonder. Honestly if the contract stayed the same I’d be fine with it. I really don’t have any issues with the current contract. I’d like to keep coming to work and make that money.

Pros

Overtime.

Cons

Some really annoying people

Bully culture

Bully culture and ble culture, no team work and contractors are not liked either, on a positive note the projects are good, better management is required

Hard Place to work in

Management can tell you what to do at anytime and you are supposed to jump hoops for them when asked terrible people and terrible place and feels like the whole place is stuck in the past

None

Cons

Worst place I’ve ever worked

The worst place I have ever worked. Micromanaging on all levels. Revolving door of employees. People in supervision that has no business in that role. Forced to get vaccinated then told it’s not a requirement.

Pros

Child bonding time of two weeks for new child

Cons

Just don’t work there. It’s the biggest regret.

Okay place to work

Started at bae as an apprentice. applied for voluntary redundancy 8 years later and didn't look back. They seem stuck in old ways of doing things. Often treat workforce like children.

Hard but mostly enjoyable

get your task for the day ahead and left to get on with it. how to communicate with all levels of authority and respect for others,how to work as a individual or part of a team,the management could be firm but fair,the co workers were the ones that made the company a place you enjoyed going to work,the hardest part of the job was managing times for deliveries between runs,the most enjoyable part was knowing that you had done your best and a lot of gratitude from co workers
