Your co-workers are awesome, and management will walk all over you. I swear, it's like "rudeness" is a prerequisite for their job.
DRAMA!! It is amazing how people inside the company with backstab each other! I have a family to help support and a major illness. I worked here for 2 months. Everyone was great when I had to take a day for illness...but when there my day was full of hate and anger that one employee had towards others. The people that work the hardest, get paid the least! I wanted to continue working, but the bulling from some, not worth it. Talking behind people's back...questioning the gender of some and they should not be using the female bathroom when they didn't fit others picture of a female. This was pure hate!! If you have the thickest skin and don't care what people will say about you to make themselves look better, go for it. Not all were bad....but then again, you never know what people are saying behind your back!
Management routinely treats typical production/greenhouse associates like non-entities and routinely ignore them as they walk by. They ignore questions, comments, gestures, motions, everything. They're straight up rude people.
Collective blaming is the ruling philosophy of production. In particular Vault # 2. During my time, I witnessed shameful collusion, manipulation, deception, coercion and discrimination, in a never ending cycle of people trying to outshine others. It was very toxic, the further implementation of individual timing for how long it takes you to do the job, ended all sense of camaraderie. Workplace faction and gossip is a very real problem.
I had went out of my way to help establishing a framework for guidelines of GMPs for the intensive grading process, I never missed a day of work, I worked every holiday that came my way, I never used my available vacation or emergency days, I came into work early and in some cases on my own time to head the consequent training of my superiors on newly installed heavy industrial machinery. On the day of my termination, with only one infraction on my probation, I walked into the HR office and the first thing she said was "What do you have to say, although I don't think it's going to make much of a difference or change my mind" that quote in a nutshell signifies the unprofessional power trip some of the individuals at Aphria find themselves on. This all happened over the course of 2 months. Despite whatever is said to the contrary, the bigwigs could care less about the employees. Nepotism is also a ruling philosophy in regards to advancing in the company.
