Specialty Portfolio Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 November 2017
A great experience as I learned a lot about building relationships as well as running my own business with the territory I was assigned. Demanding job with a lot on the go, but well worth it because of the culture and team you are a part of.

Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB1 November 2017
Very friendly staff, this place was like a breath of fresh air to work for.Flexible hours and every weekend off. Team work was a must but you can work independently, as you had your own work to do on a daily basis. I never had a dull day working for this company.

Great opportunity for advancement
Summer Sales Rep (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB31 October 2017
Labatt is a huge company under the ABInBev umbrella of companies. Therefore opportunities for advancement are limitless. Sometimes managers lacked a little experience due to fast movement within the company. Great benefits and hours.

Dossier judiciaire vs emploi
entrepôt (Former Employee) –  Bois-des-Filion, QC28 August 2017
Je suggère aux ressources humaines lors de la première entrevue de poser la question "Avez-vous un dossier judiciaire" ce qui évitera alors des pertes de temps et surtout des déceptions car vous dites "vous êtes engagé" et lorsque la personne arrive au travail et bien elle est retournée car elle a un dossier judiciaire et ce, même si la faute commise n'a aucun lien avec l'emploi ni avec les tâches que cette personne aura à effectuée.

Donc, en agissant ainsi vous faites peut-être perdre à cette personne un autre emploi qu'elle a refusé parce qu'elle a choisi de travailler pour cette compagnie.
Pros
aucun
Cons
pas très diplomate

Not happy with job
Staging Department (Former Employee) –  London, ON20 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.
Pros
Paid breaks
Cons
Working environment

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
