When I'm looking for a new manager the first thing I look for is motivation. I want somebody wants to be there and lead their team in getting the job done even when they are cold, wet and miserable and their whole team is cold, wet and miserable and something important has just gone wrong.
The second thing I look for is organisation. They must be able to organise themselves and others, as well as the administration, finance, etc.
The third thing is leadership skills. They must be able to get along with people, help them when they are stuck and be firm when they are lazy.
The fourth thing is technical skills, which vary greatly depending on the job. Ideally they should be able to do every task the team has to do, but it's not always necessary.
Ambiance de travail médiocre, employés peu motivés, travail redondant, gestion de style archaïque, peu de lien de confiance employés/ gestionnaires.
Technologue de laboratoire (Former Employee) – St-Hubert, QC – 18 October 2018
Excellent salaire, bels avantages sociaux. Peu d écoute provenant des gestionnaires, injustices, ils sont incapables d être impartiels, beaucoup de manque de jugement de leur part. Ils se déresponsabilisent et mettre toute la pression sur les employés. Ambiance de peur règne au sein du laboratoire. Pas de liens de confiance établient entre les employés et les gestionnaires. Harcèlement psychologique est au RDV. Les employés y travaillent que pour gagner un excellent salaire. Ils sont pris dans une superbe cage dorée. Donc, s il n y a que le salaire qui compte pour vous, vous serez très comblé d y travailler et je vous recommande fortement cet emploi.
Horaires flexibles entre 7h30 et 17hres, belle cafétéria, gym, reer collectif. Excellent salaire.
Assurances médiocres, style de gestion archaïque, injustices, peu de possibilité d avancement.
Xxxx (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 September 2018
Do not ever work here. Racist management. No value to employee opinions. If they hire you in contract for 2 years on contract they end without letting you know. Before your time of contract. They only want to get by by getting there needs after that you are nothing to them. Extremely poor people management.
Conditions d'emploi généreuses et culture d'entreprise favorisant le développement personnel
Chef Analyste Financière (Former Employee) – St.-Damase, QC – 26 July 2018
De part son mouvement coopératif, Agropur favorise le développement professionnel. L'aspect le plus difficile dans mon poste était le manque de compréhension des différents impacts de notre usine sur l'ensemble des opérations du groupe.
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 25 May 2018
The job itself is pretty simple and straightforward. Very minimal in terms of microbial lab work.
Some of the people you work with are great, but management avoids a lot of questions. When I was hired I was asked about benefits and the answer was avoided until I had the paper work to hand back in. They obviously know these answers but hope you won't pry. The pay is great for what was basically measuring and tasting cheese.
The weekend shift has 0 security and no one will give honest, straight answers about the likelihood of having a job by December (heard news in March/April) which is a shame. I would never have taken the job had it been clear. In addition, primary hear-say, people say no one really takes care of the employees in management. They avoid issues and use bandaids to fix things, which is also a shame.
There also became a really malicious work environment where each person is out to oust another in order to get the permanent position since contracts have no stability.
Working with Agro pur company it is fun and enjoyable
Filler Operator (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 30 April 2018
This is my passion working with agricultural milk and milk product , working with Agro pur company it is fun and enjoyable. I find myself having interest working and learning more about the company. Aside from this they have a wide range of company product which eventually could help employ and share jobs to other people. They got good managerial staffs, that always see to it that the workers are happy with their work and their workplace is safest and conducive to work. I always like come to work everyday, the work environment is nice and peaceful.
Good place to work, because it deals with a good product (milk).
Stagiaire au département de maintenance (Former Employee) – Saint-Laurent-du-Var (06) – 30 April 2018
Très petite entreprise pouvant apporter beaucoup de défi. L'un des propriétaire est très compréhensif et aide pour les apprentissages. Le second actionnaire n'est pas très ouvert aux autres opinions et est très négatif.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 16 April 2018
Can you spell favouritism? If so, Agropur is the place for you! Make sure if you're ever employed here you come in smiling from ear to ear everyday ready to have fun at work! But don't ask questions, management doesn't like that. - Management claims that workers on the floor are negative. Meanwhile, most new employees don't even make it through orientation and they leave. - ALWAYS check your pay stubs, that's if you get them. - Management always have their doors open, just don't expect them to be there - High management turnover. You can expect it to change every 2-3 years. - Consistency is not a thing - The job itself is not hard, can be repetitive at times though. Good co-workers, just don't trust anybody.
