Mail Clerk, Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ONApril 13, 2016
A typical day would involve lots of mailing, filing and answering client requests by e-mail, phone in person. Our management team was great. we had discounts on pet food and stuff. The hardest part of the job was all the walking. It was a huge place. The most enjoyable part was working with the people and pets.
Pros
Working with pets.
Cons
Alot of walking.

Fun working environment
Head of Continuous Improvement (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONJanuary 12, 2016
8 to 4 pm type work day generally speaking. it is a business casual environment. for the most part the work environment is positive. Management team positive and goal oriented.
biggest challenge was convincing management that lean six sigma was the next cultural change effort needed to allow for competitive advantage.
Most enjoyable was the people who work there. Everybody was friendly...
Pros
great social events
Cons
political

Safety oriented, clean workplace. Bonus based on goals set at the beginning of the year. Continuous improvement is our mindset. We all work as a team.
Production Data Control & Backup Prod. Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Caledonia, ONDecember 10, 2015
Everyone works as a team, helping each other working efficiently and safely. It is unfortunate that the facility will become a distribution center on January 29, 2016, but that is part of change. We have daily morning meetings to review the challenges of the day before then have an end of shift meeting with key operators to discuss efficiency's of the day and the improvements needed. I can't say enough about the interaction of hourly and salary personnel working together to fulfill a common goal to correct any bottlenecks in the production chain. I think the hardest part of the position is engaging people who are not computer literate to understand SAP and really, they do very well and want to learn. Good morning to everyone you meet is not something that is said in passing, it comes from the heart and taking the time to listen to that one person that might have a personal problem, from home or at work means something to them and I listen and give support where I can.
Pros
Celebration of achievemtents or milestones is promoted almost monthly - such as a production record, 5 yrs. of no lost time to mention a couple.
Cons
Can't think of anything that is worth mentioning
