Distribution Centre Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 April 2017
Responsible for the distribution of cheese products throughout Western Canada. Oversaw the warehouse, transportation, supply planning and customer service of a major facility. When first hired I worked directly with the Saputo group, then they purchased Dairyland whose people were moved into key roles and the business philosophy changed. Under Saputo the opportunities and culture were fabulous. It was an entrepreneural environment. The culture changed as the new group positioned their people in key roles and started to reign in the spirit of the people.

Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Halifax N.S – 6 October 2015
As i work full days at the golf course i also work 3 evening shifts and 2 full days on the weekend with the company Saputo Dairy. A typical day at Saputo is arriving to many different grocery stores and having to work our products onto these grocery stores shelves(mostly Milk products). Working independently has of course pros and cons. Pros are its normally a pretty quite working space and i get to make my own decisions on the product placement and the way our products will look on the shelves. Cons are it being independent, I have to work after many other co-workers who don't appear to show the same work ethics as I display. They can other leave product behind because they felt they did enough that day, or even had other co-workers tell me myself that some leave work behind for me specifically because they know i'll be in that day and still don't complain about the extra work. Saputo is a great job but just the environments of the grocery stores are the downfall. While working independent with Saputo you experience much interference with grocery employees and management. What i mean by the environments of the grocery stores are mostly everyone tends to make their days difficult and more frustrating not only on themselves but for their other co-workers. For example i experience on a daily basis other workers only complaining on how poorly their co-workers are and how they work. If said person leaves one thing behind or leaves something in the way for only a minute, another co-worker whom its interfering with would rather complain on how poor of a worker that other employeemore... is, rather than take matters into their own hands and just move the product out of the way. To me for the most part I see very little team structure in these stores and it's frustrating having to hear on a daily basis how tough someone else's life is because they had to make an extra effort.less
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Okanagan BC – 25 October 2013
I was a Sales Rep for Saputo ( Dairyland Rep) in the Okanagan. Long days and lots of traveling as I had a big territory. Loved the people that I met and it was great sharing my knowledge and expertise about business with them. Each store was an individual so it was good for me as I like a challenge.
Mismanaged, disorganized, too many departments looking out for their own
Sales (Former Employee) – Edmonton – 5 May 2013
This place had so much potential for being a great company to work for, but the lack of support from management, mistakes made by other departments made the job impossible. Having angry customers call because they didn't receive their product, or product was missing or shorted was a regular occurrence, yet there was little willingness from other departments to help these customers out, especially if they were small. Constant battle to hold on to customers.
Mismanaged, disorganized, no customer service, lack of support
worst Company ever to work for in Calgary, Ab call center
customer service (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 March 2013
The only good thing with Saputo is benefits but every company has that.
1. Poorly managed and managers who are in experienced and don't care about the workers.
2. Don't promote with in the company. They made me work at a job for over a month, I was thinking I was going to get the promotion then they hired someone else but yet was going to force me todo and train the new guy.
3. Lots of gossip in the office from co-workers. When you confront the manager about it she doesn't want to get involved. But managers are supposed to manage the department.
