Good benefits, bad management, keep your head low and you will be ok.
Chief Compounder/Chemist (Former Employee) – Greater Napanee, ON – 17 August 2015
As a general labourer, it has good benefits package, the drawback is the changing 12-hour shift works. The plus side is that you only have to work 14 days/nights a calendar month (+/- 2). There is no union to protect worker, and HR is very weak in term of protecting the labour force. They act more like a ticket master (for special events or deals) than to address real human resource issues. Mostly, they lean on the employer and management side than the employee side.
Upper management tends to be micro-managing although their technical knowledge is below average (of their own admittance). Middle management is treated like second-class citizens and bounds to be abused by both upper management and ostracized by the general labour workforce. Unless you are yes man/woman kind of person, it is extremely frustration to make any change or put new ideas to the table to be considered. Current plant manager/manufacturing director (2013-current) is known to be a bully, with everyone knows it, but would not, could not do anything about.
