I enjoyed working with Co-op. The hours and pay were good and they provided many opportunities for growth and advancement. Very much a team player and supportive of local communities.

Lacombe co op is probably the best to work for. None of the other Agro sites are . Innisfail is terrible. Managers unorganized and staff just lazy. You won’t know if your coming or going. You’ll be told your hired to do a certain job or jobs and you will end up doing something totally different . Too many people trying to run the place.
Pros
Overtime
Cons

evening/weekends/holidays, slow wage increase

A great company to work for with great people. But the opportunity for advancement leaves a lot to be desired. You can be a long term part time employee, but to try and get any advancement at all is almost impossible.

I didn't like working here mainly because of management. Whenever you had an emergency and you called in to work they expected you to drop this emergency and go to work. Also they cut your hours back if you didn't show up to work.
Pros
Decent amount of breaks.
Cons
Management unfair

Co-op is a friendly environment, with hard working employees. All the employees and employers treat you like a friend. They teach you the basics of what you need to know and from there you learn as you go. After a days work, you're always proud of what you have accomplished.
Pros
Good people, good working environment
Cons
Repetitive, not enough hours
