Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON25 July 2017
My typical day was scheduling an out side carrier to supply the food industry with our product and doing stock rotation, The most enjoyable part for me was working with the Shoebox campaign each year as we supplied the pallets for the volunteers at there warehouse. The workplace was was clean and all the people were friendly to each other, Management was great. I learned that it is important to have stock rotation and inventory each week. I think the hardest part of the job was to keep the flow going smoothly. From the raw product to the finished and packaged product to the shipping. I learned to have understanding of the whole scheme of things
Pros
Benifit package
Cons
There awere no Cons to this job

Was good, then turned horrible
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB24 July 2017
Years ago, this was an awesome place to be at, then management changed and currently, every manager there has no experience or education in the field and it shows. A supervisor had 14 harassment claims against him, so upper management promoted him! If you want to work somewhere that doesn't care about you, then come to Parmalat. You'll get belittled and beaten down on a daily basis.
Pros
Free milk
Cons
management doesn't have a clue

Very fast paced environment with alot of responsibilites
Customer service/telemarking/route acct.clerk (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 April 2016
A typical day of work was calling clients,and receiving clients orders,and the odd complaint.
We learned how to work very fast in solving customer complaints,and processing orders,
Management was not always there,as we were understaffed,and management was overworked.
The hardest part of the job was trying to fulfill all of our orders within the 7 hour work day,including complaints,quality customer service.and processing all the orders.
The most enjoyable day was when the computer was working well with no slowdowns,the staff were all on time,people were smiling,and most of all,the customers were happy.
Pros
An actual full lunch hour/and or break when needed
Cons
missing /and or late employees, employees taking too luch leisure time

Pros
Great social activities organized by social club. Complimentary coffee, milk, yogurt and other products.
Cons
Negativity emanating from senior management led to low morale among the employees.

Worst place I ever worked at
Shipper/Receiver (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC10 January 2016
People are unprofessional, scheming and will stop at nothing to sabotage each other for any advancement at all. Supervisors will blatantly favor their senior "buddies" with every single opportunities and let the new hires deal with the worst assignment and equipment.

The job only becomes tolerable after working there 20 years, when you are the one getting the favors. Do not even consider working there as a student.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
abusive supervisors and coworkers, terrible work conditions

bon salaire et avantage sociaux
chauffeur poids lourd (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC18 December 2015
Faire des livraisons de produits laitiers directement dans de super marchés dans des semi-remorques. S'assurer de faire une vérification du véhicule avant départ, vérifier le contenu de la semi-remorque. Chez le client, je devais procéder au déchargement, vérifier les quantités, reprendre les retours et procéder à la facturation à l'aide d'ordinateur portatif. L'aspect agréable du travail de mon travail était la qualité des équipements (camions, remorques et transpalettes) et le côté moins agréable était la composition avec la circulation intense ainsi que l'affectation des livraisons dans des endroits étroits.
Pros
bonnes équipements
Cons
horaires atypiques

Technicienne de laboratoire, qualité (Former Employee) –  Marieville, QC22 April 2015
Chez Parmalat en tant que technicienne de laboratoire, le travail d'équipe est facile et nécessaire. Les techniciennes effectue bien plus que les tests de laboratoire de routine. Elles sont impliqué dans la mise en place d'équipement, les inspections de produits et de procédé, les audits internes, la formation du personnel, la calibration d'appareil de laboratoire et de mesure en production. J'y ai travaillé sur des quart de travail différent et souvent seul. Ce qui nécessite une grande autonomie et un certain leadership avec les gens de production.
