good cafeteria

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
this place is a great opportunity to learn a new skill set. The cafeteria cooks breakfast and lunch and the prices are reasonable. A few soon to be retired employees keeps the atmosphere light.

Pros

its a check

Cons

Incompetent management

Horrible upper management. Never accomplished anything for my department in over 3 yrs. Lack of understanding what works and how to approach problems. I feel this was a step back in my career. They mismanaged a launch of new MRP system and a complete lack of support and training after words.

Was a good place to work

It was a good place to work before dormakaba bought it. I had a good manager. They were flexible with personal problems or needing time off. The pay wasn't great, but it was higher than other industries in the area. Once they were purchased by kaba, things started to go downhill. Managers no longer had as much say in day-to-day operations. Our yearly bonuses were reduced to almost nothing. Then they merged with dorma and became dormakaba and we knew they were looking to close us down. They moved operations to Canada within 2 years.

Dormakaba is a great place to work. Salary is becoming more competitive.

A great place to work. Salary is becoming more competitive. The company was a bit poorly structured at the time I joined in 2017, coordination between departments at the was clearly lacking, but things have become much more better over the years.

Incompetent management .

Management has no idea how to run a company . They constantly scantly screw over customers and employees to get bonuses for the inner circle . Don’t pay employees what they are worth . Hire employees that threaten to shoot people and pay is garbage . Don’t waste your time when this this place . You’ll regret it

Good salary but no growth

Salary is good but there is always sales pressure, management is same( no new faces at board) can be a good career start but not too much room for growth

fine if you dont mind working overtime

this job is overall pretty simple and not too hard, but most days upper management cant seem to get us the right materials or continues to order complicated doors that take a lot of time, then complain when e cant get them out fast enough. last i worked there we were working 4 10 hour days, but we would end up having to work an 8 hour shift every friday.

Busy and demanding

The department was small but had constant high turnover of staff within a 12 month period. Workload was constantly high and the pressures and demands from management to get things done there and then took it’s toll (hence why a lot of people either left or was let go before or after probation). KPIs and targets were set to such a high standard that you could be made to feel bad if it fluctuated or dropped below expectations. Diversity within the department lacked but the people were generally pleasant. The team was almost always short-staffed. A full team, including 2 technical colleagues was 5 people, which isn’t enough to deal with the never ending workload, but management wouldn’t consider hiring a 6/7th member. There were/are some hardworking and kind people there. Overall, I think it needed a shakeup when it came to managing workload (and not making me people feel bad or inadequate for not always meeting such high and often impossible expectations). It also needed to work on retaining staff members. This could’ve been achieved by offering more moral support, team building experiences and providing more compassion when mistakes/misunderstandings are made.

Pay was great but also when business is slow, they lay off the highest paid workers

Benefits are Great. All the Old Managers were great until they laid them all off and replaced them supervisors instead of a manager. The new team is all about micromanaging and they don't know their own jobs so they push the workload of on you regardless if you know how. They don't offer the training needed to get the job done nor the tools. All the information is VERY outdated. They are always understaffed. And the revolving door for new temps to replace valued employees is their biggest problem. Even upper management come and go very quickly. It's a downward spiral for this company. Very sad to watch.

Very pushy Management Micro managed by people who hide their own mistakes and laziness.

Now, Great job if you're not passionate about pleasing your customers.Unfortunately, it's all about Dollar, not Quality of service.Then Customer use to be important, now they are just money.

Pros

Great pay rates Rewarding work

Cons

Micromanaged Weekend and nightime split shifts

Good place to earn experience

The company and the work environment is good the management plays favorites too much and is detrimental to the overall employees. The other employees are willing to help you out and give tips on improving your welding skills

Other: They drug test

Quality manager didn’t have professional working culture

I worked about 2 months but I missed 2 years, however Dormakaba was a lovely company . I like work at this company again as quality assurance and I am confident Dormakaba can improve quality of process and product as well.

Decent pay, but toxic work environment. Nothing is organized, constantly running out of product

Expect you to work above and beyond and then some. Nothing is ever good enough, very bad morral. Expected to pick up the slack of other workers. Hours are always changing
