MIxer (Former Employee), Carson City NvMay 29, 2013
Drove the forklift all day to carry heavy barrels such as Corn Syrup and pour it in into a big barrel weighing up 1200 lb. to mix other ingredients. Co-workers were great but most didn't know how to speak english but i understood them because i am bilingual.

Infrastructure Support Manager (Current Employee), Greenville, SCApril 12, 2013
Pros: telecommuting, travel, paid cell phone, exposure to fun gadgets
Cons: difficult for advancment, pay does not reflect amount of work
After working with the infrastructure group with SunOpta for nearly seven years, I have been exposed to a vast array of learning experiences. The infrastructure team is very lean, and that leads to the opportunity to gain lots of hands on experience combined with on-the-job training. The position that I am in has also allowed me to have quite a bit – more... of travel, including five trips to Europe. The lean aspect of our department can also lead to the need to work many long hours which can make a work/personal life balance rather difficult.

I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best managers of my career in this position which, at times, can make the long hours seem worth it. – less

Accounting Assistant (Former Employee), Alexandria, MNAugust 31, 2012
A day at work was never the same but that is what I liked. I learned how work in a business setting and learned new skills. My co-workers were easy to get along with and very helpful if I had questions. The hardest part was talking to my boss. The fun part was doing different tasks and my co-workers.
