Forklift Driver
Forklift Driver (Former Employee), New Annan, PEJune 23, 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 – more... 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. – less

Revolving door at senior sales management.
Southeast Division Manager, Foodservice (Former Employee), Moncton, NBApril 7, 2014
Pros: great benefits. great products.
Cons: no job security. no tools to respond to competitive environment.
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.

Relaxed and fun work environment. Also hard work.
Seasonal Worker (Current Employee), Presque Isle, MEJuly 12, 2012
Pros: friendly work environment.
Cons: short breaks, not knowing when you will work again, and poor workmans comp benifits.
It depends on what you do here for work. If you work on the harvester, it is very long hours. If you work in the packing shed, there are two main jobs. The first is what is called racking. Racking consist of standing in one spot and picking out the bad potatoes and rocks as they go by on a belt. Then there is packing. Packing can consist of fill 50lb. – more... bags and running them threw a sowing station, then sending it up a belt to be stacked onto a pallet. Then there is takeing 5, 10, or even 15 lb. bags and putting them in polly then taping it up. after you tape it up you send it on a belt and walk to the end of said belt and picking up the polly bag that can weigh 50 or 60 lbs. and then stacking them any where from 5 high to 9 high. The people you work with are very nice and you have two 15 min. breaks and an one 30 min. lunch break. – less
