Production Service Lines (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 24 October 2016
Productive and fun workplace, people work fast in the conveyor. Work area is cold because its food processing factory. Co-workers are hardworking but enjoying the job. Supervisors are strict but supportive and easy to approach.
Hardest part of the job if the machines are down, but have to continue working manually. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with others to reach quota.
IT Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 19 October 2016
Fast paced environment. Must be able to juggle multiple tasks and meet the deadlines. Excellent, knowledgeable co-workers. Most difficult part of the job is trying to educate management on a role which they are not familiar. Most enjoyable part of the job was the budget process and new technology. Company is technology focused.
Not much appreciation for work if you are in a support role.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Glover Road, Hannon, Hamilton – 9 October 2016
Very cold work place. A lot of downtime and standing in cold when machines are not running.No communication at all. Supervisors have no clue at all. Employee services is not good at all. The only best part was coworkers. Everybody get along and work together and have fun. Forced to work on every weekend. They do not care about employees personal life. No work life balance. No scope of advancement.
lunches on long weekend in summer.
Zero work life balance. Supervisors are clueless about anything. No respect for employees.

Box Maker (Former Employee) – lethbridge, AB – 27 July 2016
Everyday from work is always busy. I learned how to take care not only my job but also my co-workers. I don't like some management because some of them they don't fix the problem or it would take a months, year or never. Some of my co-worker are good worker but some of them are lazy I hate lazy people. for me the hardest part of the job even your trying your best in work the supervisors don't see that because they don't know what's real happening on the site cause they are not always there to look what's happening. Most enjoyable part of my job is to have co-worker at the same time friends and some of them we had a team work but it doesn't matter to me if there is a team cause I could work alone or as a team.
sometimes there's free lunch and has games..
only 8 hours Monday to Friday and they are giving overtime if you want too, or sometimes there is mandatory overtime.
The machines were always having issues, they would frequently break down causing problems down the line. End of the line workers have a lot of trouble keeping up with the amount of product coming down the line because the workers are consistently taken away from the end of the line.
