Clean workplace with the correct priorities.
Pros: employees have a discount on the meat that doesn't make the cut to go to the stores.
Cons: cold temperatures, loud noise.
Grand River Foods takes great care to keep the workplace clean by regularly washing the rooms and equipment and leaving many signs and warnings for employees to keep clean hands as well as other sanitary behavior for working with food.
The managers are respectful towards the employees and the workers generally get along in and out of the workplace.
The most difficult work has to do with awareness and speed, usually while packing boxes on a busy day or separating the good meat from the bad as it passes on a conveyor belt. Also, workers must be ready to face the fridge temperatures of the rooms, usually by dressing in many layers, or to deal with loud machinery despite wearing earplugs.
But the job was also enjoyable, for employees generally work alongside each other and are free to converse for as long as they complete their tasks properly.
