operator (Current Employee) –  Simcoe OntarioMarch 27, 2014
Management has a cut throat mentality. Employees are never appreciated as well as this facility gives new meaning to the term "Lean Manufacturing" Packers are treated the worse as they are pushed harder and faster until they get hurt and then made to feel like they have done something wrong. Never report an accident because that could cost you your ...
Cons
very demotivated work force.

Machine Operator and Mix Flavour
Machine Operator, Mix Flavour (Former Employee) –  Simcoe, ONOctober 9, 2012
An excellent job for a person my age but there is a large gap between what happens on the factory floor and what the supervisors believe can be done. At times there is a huge lack of communication between what the workers can do and what the supervisors think can be done. The managers need to have a better grasp of what the factory is capable of.
Pros
great pay, good co-workers
Cons
forced overtime, supervisors knowledge

Staff turn over is fast, job security is always a concern.

10-12 hours of working is not uncommon and also there is no proper system of carry over for the next shift. Completing all the work before end of the shift is very demanding.

Poor work environment
Maintenance Electrician/Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Simcoe, ONJuly 23, 2014
Could be a great place but the environment has apparently gone down hill since Unilever bought the little ice cream plant. The plant may not be around for too much longer according to the current manager.
