Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Vernon, BC – 25 April 2017
It's tough to get on full time but if you can make it through the on call time and into the union its a great paying job with great benefits. Company doesn't seem to have any loyalty to staffers though.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 5 April 2017
I worked there for an entire year. Long story short: Management is the absolute worst! They treat their entry level employees like they're disposable rather than coaching them to move up within the company.
a typical day would start early morning ...the first thing was to clean the equipment before the production, I was to have everything up and running by the time the clean bottles came out of the soaker (machine that washes the glass) ,now run the fast pace filler machine ,filling whatever our production was for that day, do checks and data sheets every hour or as required,, working 8 hr shifts and overtime as needed I enjoyed this job very much the coworkers and management were all great to work with ,no issues of any kind ,,also did the monthly inventory on product I lost my job after the plant closed down ..November 2013..
Material Handler/Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee) – Warehouse/ guelph ontario. – 21 November 2013
A typical day consists of loading and unloading of beer and materials neccesary to perform the production of beer. I've learned how to multi task and work in a fast paced environment, with safety as the first priority. I work with a great crew of people who respect each other, safety and the company. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing Sleeman Brewries care about there employees and there well being, unfortunatly due to business decisions related to logistics they have had to make some personnel cuts.
