rigid workplace, lots of favortism from management to certain employees
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON27 February 2013
A Typical day: Arrive ay work between 6:30 and 6:50 am to change into the required uniform. Be on the line ready to work by 7am. Work on the line for 2.5 hrs and take a 10 min break. Then back to the line work another couple hours have a 20 min lunch break, back to the line to work until 3p.m. shift end. Learned alot about cheese production and the food regulations. Management not too fair. Lots of favourtism and sometimes unrealistic ideas. Most co-workers were good to work with although there was a serious issue with bullying in the workplace between employees and sometimes even from management. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the bullying and the way some co-workers treated other workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was actually doing my job. Working to put out a quality product that I was proud to say I packaged.
Pros
christmas party, the very rare luncheon
Cons
mostly the work enviroment

Bullying and intimidating
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, ON10 November 2017
Agropur and their full time staff are quite nasty to new employees. They create a discriminatory environment with the enforcement of green hair nets to decipher who is new and not. This leads to targeted bullying. I've witnessed line leads make new employees cry or go home. I've witnessed full time employees throw packed heavy boxes at new employees. They refuse to properly train employees, training only on the slice one line and throwing them into unknown areas following the two weeks. You are promised a minimum of 3 shifts a week to start, if you take a sick day they'll limit the amount of shifts you receive if they don't fire you during a personal emergency leave. They hire you on a six month contract to hire and yet the plant manager refuses to hire full time positions before 2019
Pros
None
Cons
Intimidating, bullying, bad management, no promotions, no shifts, unfair treatment, illegal dismissals
