Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Sault Ste. Marie, ON – 7 December 2012
checking the quality of scratch tickets before they r packaged and shipped out...i learned how to be very diligent about my work habits and finding bad quality of tickets quickly and efficiantly...management were out to make money and not so concerned about their employees...i loved working with my fellow co workers...hardest part was probably the standing for long periods of time...meeting and making new freinds
Exellent management team, excellent co-workers. And excellent owners who care about employees.
Package line assistant (Former Employee) – Ssm – 24 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.
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.
Professional White Collar (Former Employee) – 140 Otter St Winnnipeg – 8 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.
It's in the suburbs and parking is free
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, Alberta – 20 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.
