Lots of room for continuous improvement
Maintenance Planner (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON23 October 2013
Maple Leaf Foods has great cultural values for developing leadership and being accountable. It is committed to continuous improvement to refine its practices for the purpose of safer food and profitability.

Energetic, creative people will find lots of room to grow their skills amid skilled co-workers. Much of the supervision and management structure is very receptive to new ideas for improving processes, and let dynamic individuals work and advance their projects.

The one drawback is the occasional manager who doesn't want their employee to outshine them in a role, and lets personal opinion matter more than the fact based approach espoused by the cultural mission.
This leads to some areas that are resistant to change and maintenance of the status quo -- so the hardest part of the job is staying motivated to conquer such roadblocks, because the rest of the company is hungry to develop and succeed.
Pros
lots of room to improve efficiency, processes, and gather data
Cons
some rough, out of date practices -- lack of automation and technology compared to other machine-based sectors.

Meat Processor (Former Employee) –  Cloverdale, BC11 December 2017
I was in the sanitation/Quality control department so a typical day would generally consist of looking for condensation on the ceiling and wiping it dry. Making Sure room temperatures for coolers and smokehouses were correct.
Pros
Great place to work really nice people.
Cons
The plant was preparing to shut down. It eventually did.
