General Labourer (Former Employee) – 75 rexdale blvd – 10 August 2017
Operated wrapping machines, Packaged sausage meat. Coded labels. Management was very supportive. Keeping other employees happy was the hardest part. The lighting and the work space was easy to move around in.
General labor /Machine Operator/Lead Hand (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 18 March 2015
Early start to every morning !!! Our production is getting busier and busier everyday! An alarm went off and all the management and co-workers responded accordingly. There is no hard pert about my job and the most enjoyable is the volume of production my team and i do everyday!!
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 March 2015
I loved working here because i put in a lot of overtime hours. I also loved it because I worked continental shifts. I just didn't like the fact that it was quite far from my house and their safety. Once i had my interview and orientation they stress safety so much, but when I worked for them they really don't care about workers safety or their concerns.
Facility Manager (Current Employee) – Canwood, SK – 4 March 2015
No recognition for effort, management hasn't got a clue. You will be simply a number if you work for Cargill. Great place to train and become proficient then get a job elsewhere for more money and less work, like all of their employees do.
This job is a low pay job. Duties in this job include working long hours out in the cold most of the times. Job is mostly cleaning like housekeeping in severe dust and cold conditions. Jumping on the rail cars in adverse weather conditions. It is a high risk job with low compensation. I would not recommend this job for diverse employees. The management wouldn't allow you to advance. This kind of job is always advertised as many people are not willing to take it.
Thanks for reading my review. I hope It will help many from falling into this trap.
This kind of job is always available at different locations.
Horrible management, Too low salary, Work at odd hours, not good for diverse employees
Forklift operator, robot operator (Former Employee) – Spruce Grove, Alberta – 27 January 2015
A usual day at work (night shift) I made sure that the robot was operating smoothly, made sure that the coding was legible and that the product wrapper had wrap in it. I also was in charge of putting the finished product in the racking in the freezer. I have learned lots ranging from operation, proper and safe teardown of equipment, and how to operate the narrow aisle, counter balance, and walkie lift trucks. Management is very nice and they understand their stakeholders and their needs. The hardest part of the job would have been the robot operator. the most enjoyable part of the job was the people and the operation of the forklifts.

Production Worker (Former Employee) – High River, AB – 15 December 2014
Very supportive company. Takes care of its employees. Some immigrants new to Canada and started out with Cargill cutting meat were earning way more money compared to some people that grew up in Canada and working in offices.
Company provided free ESL classes to everybody, even to those who already spoke English were welcomed. I believe the more advance level that were offers were TOSEL.
One story that I heard one supervisor said that Cargill had paid for his high school grade 12 English and math course and even sent him the tutor.
Fibre Analyst/Analytical Chemist (Former Employee) – Strathroy, ON – 1 December 2014
Busy day, no recognition for good work Poor salary, not competitive Not a great diversity of knowledge/expertise Safety considered a core value and proved as such Quality needs improvement Senior management focused on non-relevant issues and did not understand day-to-day needs
Good people, easy to work with personal commitments, good benefits, good safety culture
Not competitive pay, poor management, poor experience, quality
Cargill is a privately owned firm. Their culture is different comparing to a public organization.
Trading Control Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 November 2014
Due to limited workers the hardest part of the job was multitasking and be able meeting deadlines everyday with min. mistakes. The most enjoyable part of the job was process automation development using Excel vba to overcome shortage of staff. Co-workers were very helpful and a team player when dealing with problems. I have learned to be able to answer questions immediately and accurately on the trading floor.
enjoy the success of system process automation development
