It was okay hours, but the work enviornment sucks
Crib Unloader (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON22 August 2017
They don't actually care about cleanlines and quality, just so long as they make their quota for the week. They consistently change people's shifts without any empathy at all.

It's a place when everyday you learn something different, that's why this job is awesome.
PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Brandon, MB22 August 2017
it is a place where you work with different cultures and you learn how to deal with any situation. everyday you learn something new, there's no time to be scare of new things. the most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to get experience in the job environment and with cultures as well. you learn to deal with different behaviors. I may say the hardest part of my job is to keep your employees happy when you got more than 200, but it is possible to do it.
Pros
opportunities to grow up in bussiness

if you want to work 6days a week and have lot of overtime this place is for you
machine operator (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON7 August 2017
Machines are consistently breaking down and or not set up correctly, Lunch breaks are inconsistent and typically you are waiting more than 5 hours of work to have your lunch. Hiring practices for elevation are questionable, Not all employees are interviewed for the position and the most qualified person is looked over, typically for the employee who they have "cherry picked" for the positon or groomed for the position is promoted. Consistently hiring as people are always leaving. If you are ok with putting in overtime there is a ton of it. However you can be forced in with little notice and only end up with 1 day off a week.
Pros
union is strong enough that you will have a job for life.
Cons
work life/home life balance.

Maple Leaf is a company that expects a lot out of their employees. Tasks are strenuous and unsanitary at times. Full-time employees are nice for the most part.

Provide adequate space for lunch and snack breaks, supervisors and co-workers are helpful
Janitor/Cleaner- (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 July 2017
Preparing yourself with proper work attire and the hygiene required by the company while working. Gather the waste meat and clean the work area. Replace filled-up garbage bags and waste. Average waste per shift is 700 to 800 kilos.

The compliance to hygiene and work and safety standard is excellent.

Workplace culture is good. Discipline among workers is good and camaraderie is fine.

The hardest job is to ensuring that the workplace is absolutely clean for the next job and extending work hours just to ensure that the work area is ready for the next shift.

The most enjoyable is the break time where you are able to rest a bit and associate with your co-workers,
Pros
adequate break time is provided by the company
Cons
Physical work requirement can sometimes be tiring

Not a good place to work
Xray/MX operator (Lead Hand) (Current Employee) –  Hannon, ON5 July 2017
Management is constantly changing and the ones that are hired have no idea what the job requires...this company is so micro managed it is very hard to get a straight answer to anything.
The company has no regards to any type of home life, they will change your shift mid week with no disregards

Health and Safety Co-ordinator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 July 2017
Was backfilling for a maternity leave. Maple Leaf Foods is very pro-active in providing modified work to those who are injured at work. In my experience, management value to contributions of all employees and have a terrific relationship with their union leadership.

Seasonal Employee (Wiener Stuffer) (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON28 June 2017
Overall working at Maple Leaf Foods was very great. Stuffing wieners for nine and a half hours may seem boring, but having to do 5 weight and length checks per hour, and the occasional machine issue made work little more interesting.
Cons
Forced overtime, having to work shifts that employees with higher seniority didn't want to do.
