Good leadership. They taught us how to work there and people are all caring. We learned how to make bread, and sanitize. They're very hardworking, and caring.

Productive and fun work place. Cowokers made the job seem like a fun activity
Sanitation Team member (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS3 March 2016

A typical day on the job involves going over the tasks for the day and each worker going to complete their specific tasks afterwards.
Loved to ride the scissor lift.
Pros

Not an ideal workplace
Sanitation (Former Employee) –  Maple, ON28 May 2013
Depending on the plant, the supervisor could treat the employees like drones and not like human beings. Overall, it was an okay experience.

A typical day was repetitive, the areas to clean would be different product lines, the floor, and the machines at the product lines; sign in, assigned an area, begin cleaning, break at 0900, resume work at 1000, return to assigned area, clean until 1200 Lunch break. Hour lunch break, resume to designated area at 1300, clean until 1500, sometimes asked to stay later until 1700, but regularly work ends at 1500.

From this place I have learned of many different cultural differences due to the different ethnicities present at work. I was trained in WHIMIS and in operation of a Floor Scrubber. I learned of how bagels and different breads are made, Communication skills improved as well as time management.

Management was alright, they would make sure that you were not over worked.

Co-workers were pleasant to work with, different ethnicity brought forth different perspectives on concepts, many philosophical discussions were had. They also had different educations and upbringings, showing me the different ways things could be completed in the workplace and outside of the workplace.

The hardest part of the job was cleaning the cheese line. It is a line where all the products with cheese are brought through, cheese covers everything, it is a day old, and dry and smells horrible. Two power washers were required to hose off the line, three floor men were needed to squeegee the water into drains.

The most enjoyable part of the job was
  more... when you were assigned to clean the floors, most relaxed job, four-six man job, one person would put chemical on the floor, another would use a power wash, and two or one would squeegee, while one would use the floor scrubber.  less
Pros
Hour long breaks, and everyone willing to talk to each other
Cons
Not everyone could speak fluent english
