Staging Department (Former Employee) – London, ON – 20 June 2017
You will be placed on the rebate production line initially. This is very hot, dusty, and a lot of walking. Expectations are putting over 7000 bottles on the line per shift. This is difficult to obtain in many cases. Also you get wet often. All forklift operators now travel backwards when moving full pallets in and out of trailers. Front line managers are bias and don't want to understand. Typically they hire every year for their busy season, then layoff in the fall. I would not recommend this specific position based on these reasons and others.
A great company with room for advancement. You will learn quick and develop your career faster then most other companies. The people in the company are great, supportive and fun. An overall great experience.
Order Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 April 2017
This job was decent because or the people that I worked with but other then that order picking cases of beer all day really gets to your back towards the end of the day regardless if you end your knees.
Quality Technician (Former Employee) – London, ON – 24 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
Good benefits, overall cool job, free beer
They only give negative feedback and dont care about quality
At Labatt we strive for continuous improvement and are always happy to hear the feedback of both current and past employees. We will definitely consider this when looking at ways to enhance our employee experience in the future.

Mailroom Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga and Downtown – 26 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.
