Not a great company

Cutting so many corners the facility should be a perfect circle. Poor morale starting from the top down. Frustration at every level. A fine starter job.

Budding Brewery
Distilling, Brewing & Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC4 December 2017
Central City is a rapidly growing and expanding brewery, distillery and brewpub company.

The company has been managing its transition from a small brewery and brewpub to a medium sized brewing and distilling corporation. The transition has been difficult but they have good managers in place to help the company become more efficient and profitable.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the brewers and packaging personnel. Everyone worked hard and communicated well.
Pros
Employee discounts
Cons
Shift work
