SHIPPER/PALLET JACK OPERATOR/PRODUCTION WORKER (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB9 November 2013
Maple leaf has now closed down. At the time my day consisted of doing very light physical labour at an extremely fast pace. I worked on multiple jobs including shipping, palletizing, packaging and operating forklifts. Everything was very repetitive and the overtime was minimal.

Management was not as involved at maple leaf. They dealt with employees very professionally and with respect. Often they would watch from a distance or stop by periodically to see how thing's are running. It kept the atmosphere inside Maple Leaf relaxed and enjoyable.

At maple leaf while working in palletizing where i spent most of my years, you depend on other employees because sometimes 1 mans job can get overwhelming due to the speed so help is needed. In return you do the same when you witness someone else struggling to keep up. Not everyone has this quality and it brings departments closer together as a unit.

The high repetitions and constant standing was a bit tough to get used to. The job's performed were a bit mind numbing and not mentally challenging because there was no problem solving or planning.

Definately the most enjoyable part of the job was the employees. Maybe 1 out of 20 ever came to work in a bad mood or had a negative effect on other employees. Although the plant was 1000+ employees the bond between departments had a comforting feeling.
Pros
Reliable hours to fit family life, Free coffee on Fridays.
Cons
Long term employment was unreliable, plant shut down.

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.
