It's hard work, there is no debate over that. This company seeks to drive innovation into every aspect of Cannabis, and they're bullish when it comes to becoming the tops.
I have been slave driven by employers before, but this isn't that. In fact, this is the first time I am taking pride in my work and the accomplishments of my employer. I always wanted to see the Cannabis Industry become something I can take part in, and now I am part of something I am very proud of.
At Aphria the demands are high because the stakes are high, and I wouldn't have it any other way. This industry could provide improved wages and lifestyles for thousands of Canadian workers and consumers, as well as become an inspiration to our continental neighbours.
The work environment? It's about bullying, deception , and intimadation. You work as fast as you can, most people have wrist injuries, from capping because the machines don't work. The harder one works and the faster they go only increases the bar. An example of this is if someone rolls 400 joints an hour ect... Then everyone has to roll 400 an hour and so on. If you don't meet their unrealistic goals, disciplinary action is taken. The reason for this? Supervisor's get bonsus based on production. Don't even think about bringing anything up to HR. They are witches and you will be escorted out by security before you have a chance to open your mouth. This place is truly awful.
Doesn't matter. You can show up in shorts and a t-shirt. You will be hired... And then more than likely fired. No joke
Only if you are buddies with someone in a higher up position. And don't even think education or work ethic will get you there, sorry but it's the truth. Best bet is to find another company to work and grow with.
Want a job? Show up for the interview. Plain and simple. But don't expect it to last long if you are an independent thinker. In fact don't think at all, be a ghost and you might make it past the probationary period.
What would you suggest Aphria Inc. management do to prevent others from leaving?
Resign, but before they do, train the newcomers to do the opposite of what the outgoing authoritarian regime has done.
Interview was fine, a lot of question you may ask about the job will have no answer to them as HR has no clue what actually goes on within the facility.
