Package line assistant (Former Employee) –  Ssm24 May 2017
So many incentives to move and learn other things within the company. Excellent training.it feels like the pollard brothers care about there employees. Donuts & coffee or ordered in lunches for staff just to say thank you. Turkey's at Xmas bbq get togethers in the summer. Paid days off for making deadlines. I could go on and on about how great the company is.. 10plus company to work for.
Pros
All staff and no weekends
Cons
I guess... the pay.

Do what you are told and don't ask questions.
Technician (Former Employee) –  140 Otter Street. Winnipeg, Manitoba6 January 2017
Working with coworkers was fine. However all company motivation is production based. The company is reactive, not proactive. This makes working there a bit of a sweat shop and moral is very low. A good stepping stone to working else where because there is no loyalty while working there. It is common for employees with 15, 20, even 40 years of service, to get let go.
Pros
Coworkers are nice and helpful.
Cons
Job resources and loyalty are non existent.

Dead end job
Professional White Collar (Former Employee) –  140 Otter St Winnnipeg8 October 2016
It's not a bad place to work, but it's a dead end job with no room for advancement. Most people do not last more than three years. It's a good place to work if you're looking for something fresh out of school, but you should leave when you're gathered enough experience to work at other place. They do not like senior employees that offer ideas. Their ideal employee is a drone that does what they're told.
Pros
It's in the suburbs and parking is free
Cons
Military style management. Do what you're told and do not ask questions.

I was given the freedom to get the jobs done to meet scheduling.
Plant Associate (Former Employee) –  Barrhead, Alberta20 July 2013
Each shift started with communication and job allocation for staff. Tool box talks, trouble shooting equipment, communicating with management, writing up incident reports, and collaborate with HR in any investigations. When required write safe work procedures, operate machinery as well as keep quality with in customer specs. Each shift ended with recording shift production, problems, solutions, what worked well, and breakdowns in the PA log book. Verbal communication was key both for outgoing and incoming shifts. The overall thing I took away from this job was accountability. Co-chair of Joint Health and Safety Committee.
Pros
Excellant learning experience.
Cons
Too high of turn over.
