IT Department Manager (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 18 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

Assistant Team Leader Logistics (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 13 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

Pay and benefits are great. To many chiefs not enough Indians. hours are long and your entire life is dedicated to this business. When your not working with them your partying with them. No family life.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 27 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.
Plant Technician (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 22 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.
Pay is decent, you always know your schedule, overtime is always available
Coworkers are back stabbers, breaks are never consistent, management are awful, yearly chest xrays

my experience here was great, the management was great, employees were nice and friendly. this company did not discriminate against any culture from working there, that was nice to see. the hours were good at the time , the wage was ok at the time. the work was not strenuous in any way, any strenuous work for females was done by the males.
Wonderful people and great atmosphere to work! Highly competitive and not for the faint of heart
Application Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 November 2014
Procter & Gamble is a great place to work! There are numerous learning and career advancement opportunities, as well as a strong focus on learning quickly and adding significant value.
The company strongly adhere's to it's PVPs, which attracts the best and brightest from all over. Lots of great perks and benefits to the job, including numerous team-building and cross-functional social events.
Being a promote-from-within company, management can be harder to persuade / convince to push the status quo and move to newer methodologies and technologies. The size of the company also makes it difficult to make quick change, which can mean more work hours at times.
Overall, the mentorship and breadth of experiences of P&G employees was astonishing and I learned so many skills, including Project Management, App Management, Business Transformation, and so much more! It is definitely a great place to develop lifelong skills and pursue a long-term career.
Occasional free lunches; sponsored off-site events; great social events
Significant reductions in travel; quite internally competitive; long global work hours
I don't understand how google tops this company as best place to work
