12 hr shifts at full throttle, operating oversized forklifts very dangerous.
Licensed Twin Load forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON5 July 2016
The workplace safety was more than most places but the grueling 12 hr shifts were totally unsafe and there were no places for rest when burn out set in. People were ok to work with but wages were 16.00 hr and at todays cost of living it was like living on 10/hr. Not a great career move in my opinion.
Pros
none
Cons
wages

Nothing you give is enough
Quality Assurance (Former Employee) –  Hope, BC2 November 2013
Good benefits, fast paced environment.
Poor management, blames employees for issues that should be addressed at a higher level.
Favoritism abounds at this location.
If you are looking for a decent wage without the security of full time, and don't mind giving them every free hour of your life, but being expected and guilt tripped into giving more, then this is the place for you.

Some of the people are great, and that makes it easier to work your 12 hour shifts.
No day is ever the same, but politics and blame games abound.
Pros
Free Coffee
Cons

Long hours, frequent shift switching, three-day weekends
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Aberfoyle, ON2 September 2015
Fairly good company to work for. Not much management/employee interaction. Sometimes difficult to adjust to changing shifts. However, three-day weekends were nice and we were left to work autonomously and had infrequent, yet respectful interactions with management.

Challenging fast past work place, long shifts
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph Ontario24 January 2013
I worked as a temp for Nestle until I had an accident which caused me to be unable to walk, If the accident had not have happened i would still be working there, however now that I have had time off I feel the need to gain experience in different job environments. While i worked there I honed my skills as a forklift driver at the end of a production line, and within a busy warehouse. It is because of this i was able to learned to deal with adverse situations quickly and efficiently.
Pros
great co-workers, and great learning experience
Cons
long 12 hour shifts, and continental shift, and the switch between night and day shift.

Production Resource (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON12 June 2012
Fast paced environment
You will learn many things as a supervisor here which you may not learn in other environements.
Managment wants to see change and results, but also needs to change the atmosphere within a high maintenace environment.
Hardest part of the job would be being on nights, but it also is the time where you will learn the most.
