Terrible
Labourer (Current Employee) –  London20 February 2019
If you ever wanted to know what it's like to work for a fascist regime this is the job for you. Family time or time for yourself? Forget about it, your life will be all about mandatory overtime. Have a heart attack and spending time in the hospital? Getvl ready for harassing phone calls to your hospital room asking when you can come back, then bring places in attendance program as soon as you return. A few people have literally pooped their pants because they were not allowed to go to the washroom, and then production kept on running like nothing happened.

Watson Case ready is a very toxic environment
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON1 February 2019
Don't believe the positive reviews, they were posted by HR people trying to improve the image. There is a reason this company is always hiring, and has spent more than three years trying to fill tradesmen jobs.
Pros
Minimal work load
Cons
poorly managed company

Cold Cold Cold
Packager (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON28 December 2018
If you can handle the cold temperatures, this Job is pretty straight forward. They train you in everything you need to know and they have weekly meetings to update the staff on anything that is happening. It was just very cold for me.
Pros
Fun and easy work
Cons
cold temperature

High paced production plant
Kill Floor/Rendering Supervisor (Former Employee) –  HIGH RIVER, AB15 October 2018
Depending on dept, a typical production plant with planning for the shifts yield. I learned mainly about troubleshooting which has been one of my most useful skills, as any large scale production facility will have its fair share of breakdowns, and not always immediate fixes. One has to improvise from time to time. Management varies from good to poor depending on training, and people skills. There is many opportunities for advancement, and to apply into management as well as courses involved to make a person better in many areas personally as well as productive. Hardest part of job can be the stress of production and deadlines based on yields to be produced. The most enjoyable part of the opportunity for advancement, and training
Pros
Training and advancement
Cons
High stress and environment

Great cafeteria on site, and excellent training program. Safety is a big component of the work done here, especially since working around live birds. Employees I worked with were fun and made the time go by fast.

a demanding, but good company to work for.
Controller (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON8 August 2018
there is opportunity to grow within the company particularly if you are flexible to move within Canada and the United States. It is a demanding place to work, but great for people that like working hard and seeing good rewards.
