Production Line Worker (Former Employee) – Leamington, ON – 24 December 2014
Very well run plant that was organized but shut down due to plant being moved to another country to cut down employee cost. it was a good job but seemed to lay off quite a bit to not allow the worker to receive full pay and health care benefits.
packer (Former Employee) – toronto – 2 November 2014
Working at Kraft was a full time job in the summers between University. I learned how to work quickly and efficiently because everyone on the production line was dependent on everyone else. I picked up and packed cookies into chutes as it was coming out of an oven down a production line. Noticing quality issues with baked goods and on packaging was a big part of the job.
Manipulateur de marchandise/ cariste (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 13 August 2014
Étant cariste et manipulateur de marchandise sur les chaînes de montages, une journée typique se voyait à l'approvisionnement des lignes. Il n'y avait presque aucune opportunités de développement car c'était des emplois étudiants donc temporaires. Mon premier été fût très bien côté management, mon chef d'équipe était super ainsi que mon superviseur. Cependant l'été d'après j'ai hérité d'un superviseur nouveau en poste en quête de vouloir faire ses preuves. Cela est une situation compréhensible cependant cela a amené beaucoup de frictions et de résistance à l'intérieur de l'équipe. Ce deuxième été fût sans aucun doute moins agréable. L'aspect le plus difficile fût de s'adapter à ce nouveau superviseur tandis que le plus agréable fût certainement l'ambiance de travail et les relations interpersonnelles que j'ai pu y développer.
Certified Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Leamington, ON – 15 June 2014
It's been a good 7 years. It's a shame the plant had to close, I really enjoyed my job. Too bad there was a lot of poor attitudes and most weren't happy with a good paying job. People abused the attendance policy. It is what it is, the plant is closing june 25 and it does not surprise me with the way it was being ran.
Quality Control/Assistant Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 13 June 2014
Long, 12-hour, continental shifts do feel like they take up most of your life but it's not a hard job and there's usually enough to do to pass the time fairly quick. Management were always very understanding and kind but the managers for Kelly Services (the temp agency I went through) weren't always coordinated. Easy but repetitive job and not nearly as bad as it first seems.

Warehouse Labourer (Current Employee) – Leamington, ON – 10 March 2014
My typical day as of right now consists of managing and properly keeping a fully automated robot stocked with product so that production of pallets can continue on a regular basis. Over the years at Heinz ive learned many things.What I have learned that may appeal to you is the number one goal any employer wantss and thats saftey, its not anyone persons responsibility, its everyones. I have learned how to properly load trucks by weight , size of the trailer and how many pallets are on the particular load, ie . 53 foot trailer equals 28 spots on the floor , or 30 when product is loaded wide ways side by side, keep it light on the nose and light on the rear axles for proper weight distribusion.
Analyste financier Sénior - prix de revient (Former Employee) – Mont-royal, QC – 3 March 2014
Chez Kraft,les employés sont très bien traités, il y a un excellent équilibre vie professionnelle/personnelle, en tant que salarié, nous pouvons choisir nos heures de départ et d'arrivée afin d'éviter le traffic. Par contre, le département de finance est petit et ne comporte pas beaucoup de possibilités d'avancement.
