Not a great workplace to grow old in.
Millhand (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 8, 2014
Pros: under "normal/fair supervision" it would have been a good job.
Cons: the plant is full of mice, there are droppings in every corner, equipment are outdated too, it rains lots in there, rain of wheat, barley, corn, canola meal, etc. leak everywhere.
The job is not bad. The supervisor made it terrible he pushed and whined and bitched almost everyday. The worst part is playing double standard like watching you every minute when you take your lunch and made sure you don't exceed one minute. Meanwhile, his "favorites" can sit for hours in the lunch room talking about hockey, football, sunshine girl, – more... etc. and he didn't seem to notice it. As a matter of fact he was with them lots of times. The terrible part is if you are not a favorite, he wouldn't care if you have a break or not. He will just give you a list of what you should do without consideration about your need for breaks! I felt like a slave. Only having a break when it is already home time. And if a certain feed is needed urgently and it wasn't made on time because the mill cannot handle well the ingredients in it and kept on breaking down, it will be your fault. You will be made to feel guilty like getting paid for very little work done as if it was really your fault. – less

Its not worth the pay
material handler (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SkSeptember 21, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: unsafe workplace, we felt we are slave there
when I started here it was an amazing experience. I felt proud being employed by the number one company in Sk but when they started adapting the LMS ( me and my coworker jokes about the meaning of this - Labourer must suffer) they increase our rate or quota by almost 100%. The workplace itself is not a safe place anymore most of us got hurt and now – more... under therapy. And the sad part is the union dont do anything to address the problem – less

Great people, terrible bosses
Cashier (Former Employee), WetaskiwinSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: great fellow employees
Cons: horrible management
Fellow employees were wonderful to work with, however management suffered from a "Boss" mentality, they were happy to dictate work and then hide in their offices. Not a Leadership mentality to the management. Training through FCL's on-line site was limited and while supposed to be offered for all staff; convenient excuses were made.

Management is very – more... backhanded. Fine place to work if you are okay with "going along to get along" and understanding that there is a two tier system in regard to who has to follow store policies and procedures. – less

Executive Secretary - Legal Affairs Division (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SKSeptember 6, 2012
Pros: large and progressive company
Cons: still working on replacing antiquated systems
While employed with FCL I was able to expand my skills and perform tasks I would not have had an opportunity to do in the legal profession. I worked with senior executives and enjoyed assisting them with speech writing, meeting agendas and travel itineraries. There were approx. 300 people employed in the building and it was rewarding to work for a company – more... where everyone enjoyed going to work. There were certainly challeges involved when we were preparing for the Annual General Meeting where over 300 delegates from 4 provinces came to Saskatoon for a 4 day meeting that also had a training aspect to it. – less
