Old machinery, bad attitudes, good pay...
Production Operator/Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON15 January 2018
This was a decent place to work when I started years ago, now it’s more or less terrible with the exception of the odd awesome person to work with. There’s a lot of new employees and for the most part are clueless about how to do their job. The training is terrible so it’s more or less at no fault of their own. They have new people training new people that still don’t know their job. All employees that have been there long term have a terrible attitude. The equipment is as old as the factory and things break down all the time. They never actually replace anything, just put temporary bandaids on them. The work you do isn’t appreciated whatsoever. You can go above and beyond and they don’t notice but if you make one small mistake it’s the end of the world. Most of the supervisors and team leads were decent but when it comes to upper management all they care about is themselves and their bonuses, you’re just a replaceable number. The continental shifts are 50/50, long hours that can really drag but a lot of days off in return. The only real bonus to this job is it does pay quite well. To be honest the pay isn’t worth the headache. Stay away from this place if you like your sanity...
Pros
Good income.
Cons
Everything else.

Great place to work
Production Worker (Summer Position) (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON17 December 2017
this was a great place to work, your coworkers were fun and friendly and your supervisors were down to earth and very understanding. i was hired through a temp agency for a summer position. I had a lot of fun here and met a lot of great people making it a wonderful experience and pleasant place to work. I did 12 hour rotating shifts with 3 breaks throughout the shifts. honestly you couldn't ask for a better company to work for, they treat their employees great, they buy lunch for you on holidays if your working and they have all the tims coffee you could drink! the lunch room has a tv, computers and all the essentials for the kitchen to feel like home. They allow you to explore new areas and you constantly have the chance to learn new things.
Pros
great environment, explore new opportunities to learn and gain new skills, rotating shifts allows for more time off
Cons
12 hour shifts can sometimes drag

High Presuure with no respect
Manager (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON15 December 2017
Expected to be available 24/7 with no regard for personal life. Management treats stall with no respect and fosters a of bulling and ridicule. Staff treats temp workers like second class citizens and changes there schedule frequently with little notice or thought.
Hardest part of job is dealing with the constant berating from plant leadership who are inadequately skilled to hold these positions.
Pros
good pay
Cons
Horrible management

Not run very well, needs more organization.
Shift engineer/ Millwright (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC3 October 2017
The job was self rewarding as far as building good relationships. Keeping the place running. Downfall was day to day operations were not scheduled properly. Working alone with not enough staff on shifts was a safety issue.

Temporary Worker (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON14 September 2017
All you are doing here is packaging food. And that is it really. I was in high school when I worked for them however the people there are kind. Everything is peaceful although that is not taking in account of the person that you are working with.

Cold, and exhausting
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON11 February 2017
Long hours, you are in a refrigerator for the entire 12 hour shift. Unless you are on the baking side of the factory, which has a horrible smell of oil. Over all a great place to work, minus the cold.

Regularly steak wages of minimum-wage workers
Baker (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC22 January 2017
Very poor organization
Work schedules done in pencil
No stable work schedule - expect regular calls in the middle of the night to start 6am shifts
Eventually, stole part of my wages. Forgot to pay or something.

Hard work, long hours and little pay
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON10 April 2016
My job experience with Aryzta is going to be a little different than most as I worked in a student position. This means that I got paid half as much as all the other workers for doing equivalent work with no benefits and no sick days. The shifts are 12-hour continental with 15 minute meeting before the shift starts so you're at the factory literally a majority of your day when you're working and are allowed a grand total of 1 hour worth of breaks throughout the day. I never really saw the management and was more or less left on my own after less than 12 hours of "training".
Pros
overtime pay every two weeks
Cons
long hours, continental shifts, boring work
