It was a below average internship
Sales (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 October 2017
Worked there on an internship. Manager didn't enforce the whole "work-life balance" culture that everyone else got to take advantage of. The quality of the internship was horrible - mainly just reporting and printing out things for people. Didn't feel that I actually learned a lot.

company is also changing a lot, going to ZBB. Really impacting the work culture
Cons
Expected to put in extra hours, no praise, bad intern experience

Assistant Brand Building Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 October 2017
Great training ground for new grads but be prepared to work long hours in a very competitive environment. Turnover is high, even for CPG but if you can stand the stress you will rewarded.

Productive and fun workplace
Seasonal Light Labour (Former Employee) –  Simcoe, ON17 September 2017
The Unilever Simcoe plant is a very clean and welcoming environment with safety as their number one priority. Every employee brings forth their best efforts in order to ensure that things are running smoothly. Management is always there to listen and to provide a solution when you bring up an issue within the plant. The most difficult part of working for Unilever is that if you are a seasonal employee, shift work may be hard for you to get used to. Also, standing for the entirety of your shift may be difficult for people as well. In my opinion, the most enjoyable part of working for Unilever is that you are always able to safely communicate with your coworkers while on the production floor. There isn't many positions where you are isolated and unable to have a conversation. All in all, Unilever is an excellent place for people to work, especially for students who are looking to make some extra cash during the summer months.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Shift work

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON29 August 2017
I liked working here and would still be working here if the plant did not move its production to the United States. Management was fair and did not get in your way in your daily job. Friendly coworkers made for a good atmosphere.
Pros
Great pay.

Variable scheduling.

SENIOR FINANCIAL ANALYST (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 March 2017
Unilever is one of the best organizations in the World work for. They expect you to work hard, however you hard work won't go unrecognized, and you will be rewarded appropriately!
However if you are looking for career advancement within Canada this may not be the place for you. People turnover and senior positions are rare to come by.
