utility position (Former Employee) – PE – 28 September 2015
there was a double standard, and certain people were allowed to disregard the rules. was hard to know which set of rules to follow. supervisors were nice for the most part but once again depended on who you were. if they liked you, then you had no worries but if they took a dislike then you had to watch your back cause they would write you up and punish you for minor infractions so as to build a case to have one fired.
Southeast Division Manager, Foodservice (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 7 April 2014
When market conditions are in balance with inventory and margins this is a great company. However, company does not respond well to competitive environment when things are not in balance. Usually a losing season in terms of meeting fiscal budget will result in changes in senior management.
Great Benefits. Great Products.
No job security. No tools to respond to competitive environment.

Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – New Annan, PE – 23 June 2012
Fast pace, always try to find something to do. I learned a lot, How to get along well with others, how to comunicate with others, and admit when you are wrong. Management and the floor need to associate more, management seemed to be better then employees. They never seemed to have the time for employees. Getting a job posting was difficult because management didn't want certain people move up the ladder. I loved my job, i enjoyed working with people in general i enjoyed working with Cavendish.
