    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Linamar full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people you work with I find become family. They give you the option to go to school and they pay for school and pay you while you are in school.

    Cons

    You are under paid for all positions unless you are an operator. They arent very good with getting extra training for robots or controls. They dont care about seniority, and make so many excuses as to why you cant get training over somebody else.

    Advice to Management

    Help your people grow within the company instead of making them feel unwanted and under appreciated. Causing them to leave in the long run.
