Maple is a fast paced workplace and can be gratifying at times.
process operator (Former Employee) – Hanover, ON – 9 February 2018
The Heritage facility lacks competent management and bullying is a constant concern. Mandatory footwear is often stolen as are personal effects. Tools are not available and maintenance response times are generally in days rather than hours. Skilled employees are often expected to face repetitive tasks like taping and folding boxes.
Robotics operator/SME (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 1 January 2018
The policies and implementation of such policies is very poor. there is a disconnect between the production team and the Senior Leadership. it is unfortunate as there are many great people working her.
Meat Processor (Former Employee) – Cloverdale, BC – 11 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.
Great place to work really nice people.
The plant was preparing to shut down. It eventually did.
Electric hand drive forklift operator (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 11 November 2017
In general the environment of the company are well managing for security and food safety produces to satisfy customer requirement and all the employee and management team are cooperative to each others.
Benefit from each month produces is payable to employee every after 6 month
Team Member - RTE Secondary (Current Employee) – Hannon, ON – 7 November 2017
As a meat plant, it is a cold environment to work in. approximately 1-3 degrees Celsius, I recommend layers. Team members are fun to work with, but, you need to have a sense of humour and a thick skin. Frustration in production is common but some how the team members always get though it.
Skilled Operator (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 3 November 2017
Starting at this place I thought the sky was the limit. However, I reached a ceiling after 2 years. I was told there were opportunities for further advancement, there isn't. There isn't a job higher than my current operator position. The mentality spoken of in orientation and the mentality displayed on the job were far room one another. I've only had 5 jobs in mutt working career since turning legal working age and this is by far the most stressful and unappreciated of my past jobs. Management is terrible, the turnover rate of management and employees is over 50%.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 October 2017
I worked by agency. The other emplyees there are quite nice, but the irregular hours can be tough sometimes. Never unreasonable, but you would work a night shift one day, and in a couple days work a day shift. Not very consistent.
Production worker (Former Employee) – Thamesford, ON – 24 October 2017
Friendly managment and easy going employees. The work is not for the faint hearted or lazy. Definitely the place to work if you want to stay trim. I would still be working here, if part time shifts were available.
MANAGER, CATEGORY INSIGHTS (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 October 2017
Great people and culture. However there is an unnecessary sense of urgency around every task that impacts work / life balance. High turn-over in marketing and lack of any sort of onboarding which makes learning a new organization more difficult
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Hannon, ON – 7 October 2017
The new Hamilton facility looks nice, but machines hardly ever work due to lack of proper maintenance. Management is terrible, its run by kids that have no idea how to actually do anything. Anyone with any real experience they do manage to hire leaves for better jobs. The union is weak inside the plant since people there only care about themselves. It's a poor choice for a job if you want to have any life outside of work, they expect you to work 50+ hours a week or face discipline for not doing so. So if you value your sanity and life steer clear of this prison like facility.
