productive and busy as always
Labourer (Current Employee), Red deerMarch 4, 2014
Its not so busy at this time, less hogs are killed by the month of January to July so we have lots of under-time at work. I learned different cuts and how to make job easier but normally your hands get sore at the end of the day. The management is good like other companies which are implementing seniority. Good benefits are offered. Most of the workers – more... are from Ukraine,Philippines Etc.. we work together as a team. The hardest part of the job is when your hands get sore but still you have to finish your job. I enjoy working each day. – less

It is a good job for summer. It's a cold place and co-workers are nice people you can talk with during work hours. It requires to be physically and mentally strong to work because of the repetitive movements.

Horaire fixe et sur
Manoeuvre (Current Employee), Vallee-jonction, QCMarch 21, 2013
Pros: la stabilité et la sécurité que ce travail me procure.
Cons: les risques nombreux de blessure.
Je travail de 6h45 à 3h15 du lundi au vendredi comme journalière dans une usine de découpe de porc, avec 36 heures par semaine de garantie. J'ai une bonne assurance collective. Il s'agit d'un travail sur qui apporte de bons avantages sociaux. L'aspect le plus difficile est que c'est un travail dure physiquement dans le quelle nous jonglons avec froid, – more... mouvement répétitif et des charges parfois lourde à soulever. De plus il n'y a pas vraiment d'avancement possible au sein de la compagnie. L'aspect le plus agréable est sans doute, les liens créé auprès de mon équipe de travail. – less
