The company is not on par with other industries. Lots of nepotism and favouritism. Not worth a company wasting your time over. No career progression either

Bon salaire, mauvaise gestion
Électromécanicien (Current Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QC18 July 2017
Salaire au-dessus de la moyenne, les cadres sous estime les syndiquer, ils font plus confiance au sous traitant qu'a l'équipe en place depuis des années.

Applique le loi du talon, une vrai garderie....

Géré comme un ministère, beaucoup de perte de temps et d'argent pour justifier les dépenses ou les surplus.

Manque de personnelles horaire de la semaine parfois complet par 70% de temps supplémentaire.

Coalisions travail-famille difficile.

Comme on dit : tu avais une vie, maintenant tes employer de Natrel.
Pros
Overtime, salaire
Cons
Perte de vie sociale, trop overtime

Là où on s'y sent en famille!
Adjointe administrative (Current Employee) –  Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil, QC8 June 2017
Je travaille chez Agropur à Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil, depuis le 30 novembre 2016 sur un contrat temporaire de remplacement pour le congé de maternité de l'Adjointe administrative de l'Usine.

J'adore travailler pour l'entreprise et je m'y tellement sens bien, que j'aimerais y poursuivre ma carrière jusqu'à ma retraite!

Tous les employés sont sympathiques et l'ambiance de travail est superbe et dynamique avec un bel esprit d'équipe!

Le directeur de l'usine agit professionnellement et comme un bon père de famille, car on peut qualifié l'équipe d'Agropur de NDBC comme une belle grande famille unie!

J'adore Agropur autant que les produits laitiers que nous fabriquons.
Pros
La qualité de vie au travail est géniale
Cons
Mon statut temporaire!

Trop de gestionnaires, sous gestionnaires, sous sous sous gestionnaires...
Technical Consultant (Current Employee) –  St-Hubert, QC20 March 2017
Microgestion de certaines directions horrible.

Cela dépendra de votre activité, certains gestionnaires sont totalement incompétents mais se tiennent coude a coude. Dialogues de sourds.

Si vous aimez le contrôle maladif, that's the place.
Pros
Ambiance sympa entre collegues.
Cons
Microgestion désuete.

It was a great company to work for in terms of experience and pay
QC assistant (Former Employee) –  Don Mills, ON22 February 2017
Agropur was a great company to work for in terms of pay, gaining experience and insurance; however, it had quite of a difficult culture and low job security because the departments were not working as a team but against each other. Many managements were changed so rapidly during my work experience there and it did not even stop there. most of the people I knew have moved and spread around from that company just because of the working culture.
Pros
good pay and insurance
Cons
low job security and culture

Relief (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC13 September 2016
Been working for Agropur for a few years now and have realized you need to be able to give some to take some. The pay is great for the job, can be busy and long days but the work being done is not hard labour, sometimes I have a hard time staying not awake watching milk go down conveyors. The relationship between management and workers could use some work I feel. Hours can be all over the place including afternoons, graveyards, split days and nights for the week, and the supervisors don't really seem to understand how to schedule production considering that overtime is almost daily.

Upper management that is in charge of the whole transition of milk, and employees seem to write it down on paper and if it looks good they approve. Doesn't seem like they ever second question it and I can say it never goes as they plan.
Pros

I don't like the commute it's an 1.5 hrs each way from Chilliwack, the benefits and rate of pay are good and the management needs to be replaced not very organized.
