Great place to work
Great place to work as long as you are ready and capable to do the job they hired you for. Management is great and everyone takes pride in doing their best every day. I moved here for a better opportunity. If you are looking for a professional and good working environment then this is the place for you.

Stressful, Demoralizing
The Maintenance Manager at the Morinville Plant is the worst manager I have ever had to work under! He demoralizes his staff and make the the work environment virtually unbearable!

Productive and positive environment for work.
A comfortable and positive environment for work. Great company culture, great benefits plan and compensation. Safety in the workplace is their priority. I have been working with 6 companies in Canada and this company is easily the best company that I worked with. Management is very supportive, this company truly values its employees.

Truly, I don't have any thing bad to say about Champion. However, it is guaranteed that you will never say I'm bored with in a few weeks of hiring, because more than a job, working at Champion feels like you are taking an advanced training in your area of expertise. So much learning and growth opportunities, which I have never seen in other organizations. If you are ready for next learning curve in your career, Champion Petfoods is the perfect fit.

Fast Paced, Supportive and Fun
I was hired as a Customer Care Rep which sounds like a relatively easy position; however, I had three interviews - one phone call screening, one in person with two interviewers, and one with the current customer care team. Team fit is extremely important. Day to day, we are expected to handle your typical customer care duties such as answering phones and replying to emails. We are also expected to complete assigned projects and work collaboratively with other areas of the company. You are expected to do many projects that are well beyond the scope of your average customer care position, which can be seen as a chance to expand your knowledge or be extremely stressful. We always seem to be working towards a quickly approaching deadline. Everyone in the corporate office is friendly and easy going. The best days are when the dogs are in the office!

I did not enjoy my experience there.
There is no real training program. Learn on the fly, word of mouth training. Production push, push, push. Multiple production errors are not tolerated well.

Very high pace
I came in shortly after most of the old IT staff had been let go and a few more have left since I started. Company is growing very quickly and has a incredible pace.

Something Special
Working at this company was something special and would never be forgotten. Co Workers are kind nice to me since the day I started my training up to the time that I resign because of some personal matters.

Worked there during construction of the facility
Unsure how they are to work for directly.
I do hear they have created a poor safety culture now that they are in operation.

I don't have much direct knowledge since the construction of the facility was in stages and I have been done from that site for a while

Great employee's - hard working
People are great but bad management. You can get fired any time, and managers are less efficient. Comparatively low wages a QC work load. CPF needs good higher level employees to maintain the reputation.
Pros
Free dog food
Cons
Bad Management

Poor management and culture.
There are some great people there, unfortunately, the culture is toxic and there is no clear leadership, communication or direction. Management is concerned with themselves and not employees.

Only do it temporarily
If you want your efforts to go unnoticed this is the job for you.
Be warned management doesn't care about you they only care about saving their own butts, if you do get hired on cover your A.S.S. trust no one with a management position!
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Management dosen't care about you. HR department is a joke

Never the Same 2 day in a row
I liked dealing with the tenants or perspective tenants. Management was good to deal with as they would answer your inquires within a day or two. They treat the staff with respect
Pros
Free Barbeque
Cons
Irrate tenants

Easy workplace. Fun coworkers. Terrible management.
Very good job to keep you busy as long as your not looking for advancement. Coworkers are very friendly and willing to help. Management however is a joke. Constant problems with product due to lack of communication between team leads/supervisors. Making for more work for you ontop of what your doing. Expect you to bend over backwards for them and work ridiculous shifts at a moments notice. Only come here as a last resort.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
