General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Brantford, ON11 April 2017
As a temporary general laborer I did line setups and take downs.
Proctor and Gamble was my first work experience in a factory and I quickly had to learn multiple working techniques in order to remain a strong and reliable worker.
Pros
paid lunch
Cons
No fixed hours. often sent home within the first few hours due to line complications

Productive, but strenuous.
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON27 March 2017
The 12 hour continental shifts throughout the days eventually got too strenuous and I couldn't focus. The breaks were okay but it took half of the time given on breaks, just to get to the break room. Sometimes the security at the gate to the parking lot and smoking section would not be there to let us back in, making us late after breaks getting back to our line.
Pros
Good pay, great hours!
Cons
Draining, poor communication, plain environment.

Empowered employment
IT Department Manager (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON18 February 2017
Appreciated the ability to make a difference by being empowered to contribute to all aspects of work life
Typically worked day shift but flexed to meet responsibilities
Learned how to use background and interests to grow and assume more responsibility
Culture was the best. People where challenged and supported - they were led not managed
Hardest part of the role was putting up with mediocrity - it took a while to change some employees
I most enjoyed leading the Quality and Reliability Improvement work that saved ~ $6MM in one year with no site investment costs while involving all operating technicians in the improvement role
Pros
Well paid and well respected
Cons
Some employees just never got it

Good place to work with room for advancement. Good pay and benefits. Mostly rotating 12 hour shifts. Work in a team atmosphere. Work can hard and frustrating at times and other times enjoyable. Getting on the right team with good people is important.

Repetitive tasks are very demanding on the body, but breaks are given often to relieve the stress. Coworkers are nice, and managers are welcoming.

Ok
Assistant Team Leader Logistics (Current Employee) –  Belleville, ON13 July 2016
This is a great job if you are in Converting. Anywhere else in the building you are a second class employee. I work in logistics where you get no training, pressured to "own" your job, and your pay raises at 9 months and so on will be at least 3 months late. Also they will try and get you to do a leadership role without any increases in pay. 12 hour rapid rotation shifts hard to get use to. And if you are a temp outside of converting be careful cause management strings you along
Pros
Pay scale is good
Cons
hours, management, training, employee fairness

Best of bad options
Plant Technician (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON22 June 2016
The job itself is rather easy as most of your work is just cleaning machines and rethreading them when they go down, or you are doing quality, or driving a fork truck, or if your line is down you could find yourself palletizing which really is not the most fun job in the world.

Depending on the line you end up on management can be great at the direct level, but often times the engineers who are incharge of the departments have no real idea of what goes on as far as work. They often blame the employees for what is actually the machines fault.

Coworkers are often great to your face, but due to the very cut throat nature of getting promoted people are often talking about you the minute you walk away from them. In fact it was one of the worst workplaces I have ever been in for that.

I wouldn't recommend working here if you don't have to.
Pros
Pay is decent, you always know your schedule, overtime is always available
Cons
Coworkers are back stabbers, breaks are never consistent, management are awful, yearly chest xrays
