Their motto:if you don't like it, leave
Quality Technician (Former Employee) –  London, ON24 March 2017
As a salary employee, they basically own you and expect you to devote 99% of your time to them. Workload is too much. No work life balance. Their ideal employee is a 22 year old that has no friends or family and doesn't mind working a 16 hour shift on a Saturday without overtime pay. They waste all their money on trying to make themselves look better instead of fixing broken down machinery. They say quality is only second to safety but no one actually cares about quality. They only care about numbers and looking good.

Terrible management style
Join the union if you want to have rights
Pros
Good benefits, overall cool job, free beer
Cons
They only give negative feedback and dont care about quality

This job was a contract only. Was not happy with the way the company that I worked for (not Labatts) handled my employment.

Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee) –  Mississauga and Downtown26 September 2013
Other than the work itself, this was a fun place to work at the downtown headquarters. The workload was intense, many times not getting a lunch at all. Once work was done the fun could begin. We all had access to the full sized bar in the headquarters, 24/7 even on weekends (serve yourself). It had a pool table, foos ball, darts, music/speakers, lots of tables as well as comfy couches and just a fun environment.
