    I have been working at Price Industries

    Pros

    Great place to work. Management treats people well. Pay is good. Pension plan. Great people who want to learn and help teach.

    Cons

    Can't think of a lot. The plant is hot in the summer. There is not a lot of parking on there grounds. Washrooms could use an update and regular cleaning.

    I worked at Price Industries full-time

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding work. Lots of opportunity to gain experience. Opportunity to move around to different areas and form your career path.

    Cons

    More managers than employees. Managers who make engineering and technical decisions despite having zero knowledge in those areas. Very poor pay compared to other employers. Toxic work environment created by managers. You are forced you to work an exessive amount of overtime without pay. Management has beyond unrealistic expectations and deadlines creating such a stressful work environment to the point it takes a toll...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them human being rather than items. Be more competitive will pay otherwise any talent that you do hire will move on. Need to incorporate more people with technical backgrounds into management so realistic goals can be set. Focus on the work environment you create. Just look at the turnover rate in several areas.

      I have been working at Price Industries full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      The company is full of great, hard-working, driven people. The company is fairly young so there are a lot of people willing to learn and adapt.

      Cons

      The pay/benefits is mediocre to poor. The same driven people can sometimes cause other employees to overwork themselves and burn out. There are some positions that are set up to fail. Depending on the department, management can be old school and strict.

      Advice to Management

      Don't be afraid to spend money on your people. Good employees are worth it. Flexibility in positions that allow it will draw people in. Great work on keeping culture positive.

      I worked at Price Industries full-time

      Pros

      Young members and energetic. Family environment.

      Cons

      Poor management decisions. They do not follow their own direction that they said they want to follow. They rarely replace employees that quit. Teams go down from 7 to 3 members with the same work load. No overtime but you are expected to work through lunch and stay late on daily basis.

      Advice to Management

      Invest more in your employees. You have to take the risk that an employee might leave after you have spent time and money training them.

      I worked at Price Industries full-time

      Pros

      Good if you need a job right away and the 2nd Shift supervisors are amazing individuals.

      Cons

      There is next to no room for advancement and the pay is the lowest it can be. There is a disconnect from the office workers and the factory floor workers, and they treat you like you're less than them. Minimum vacation/sick days and no reward for going above and beyond. Saftey is a joke and I juries are a common occurrence. Basically Price Ind. of CG should be the last resort. The only reason I stayed over 2yrs is my...

      Advice to Management

      Start caring about your people more than going beyond your quotas. And stop hindering shift supervisors!
