Decent job for a short period
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON4 December 2017
Decent enough job. Worked there for a few summers and it was really boring but definitely made a lot of money. Treat employees fairly well, especially regarding pay. Exactly what you would expect from a factory job; a lot of standing, repetition, working with your team. I don't think I could've stayed for more than a summer at a time because it wasn't challenging enough but I have high respect for those that do.
Pros
good pay
Cons
boring, physically demanding

Productive and Positive Workplace
Production Line worker (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON18 October 2017
- A typical day at work consisted first of changing into your hairnet and uniform, punching in to the time clocks and going onto the production floor to relieve the crew that is currently working. The production line had about 5 different stations on it, with half hour rotations so you were never in the same spot for more than half an hour. My Lead Hand and Helper were very enjoyable people who made the day go by a lot quicker.
Pros
Free Lunches on OT shifts
Cons
Factory work, did not see much sunlight

Sanitation working
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON28 September 2017
Working Sanitation is alright as there are good benefits to working there, it also has many downfalls the crew is an awesome group to work with although the supervisors are little to understand others and they don't care how sick you are they still expect you to show up, the understanding of the job is easy but it's straight midnight shifts sadly unless you prefer it, lots of work with chemicals, pay starts well though, it is not something for everyone no but it isn't a terrible job. Supervisors and the company just doesn't treat their employees all that great.
Pros
Free ice cream, not always good things though.
Cons
Straight nights, some boring hours lots of scrubbing of equipment many use of chemicals.

Neat experience
Production Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON26 July 2017
Pretty cool place to work - like working on How it's Made! The worst part is the overnight shift work. Great perks (free ice cream!) and consistent hours. Staff/Management are really helpful.
Pros
Free Ice cream
Cons
Overnight shifts

Great pay with great employee's
Sanitation and Drain Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON19 March 2017
This was by far one of the best jobs I have had. Unfortunately, management was the downfall of the job. The supervisors were not understanding of medical situations and did not always have the employees best interests in mind. A typical day on sanitation entailed working with chemicals to ensure the lines were clean and sanitary to run the next type of ice cream through them once again. It is a very enjoyable job but with the lack of understanding, this job may not be for everyone.

Relief Worker (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON16 August 2016
Good job to get you started, but is not a place you would want to stay at, because the pay is not great, and you are not treated the best by your bosses.

What a joke
Millwright Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Markdale6 August 2016
Worked there for four years in maintenance
In that four years I saw 33 millwrights come and go some of them where there ten plus years. Every bad review you read is true every good one is put on my management. Notice any job on indeed for maintenance is put up by a job agency and never do they say the job is at crapmans. Word travels in small communities. I tell my story to everyone that asks. And will never by there product again.
Pros
New machines
Cons
Everything else

Stop Complaining! Collect your severance and move on.
driver (Former Employee) –  Markdale, ON1 July 2016
ALL employees are entitled to severance. Doesn't matter if you work 10 mins. or 10 years. There is no such thing as "probation" as far as severance is concerned. Minimum is generally 3 months pay, so don't whine if they fire you within a month....thank them! This applies to "contract workers" too! Contract employment is a scam designed to make you think that you're not an actual company employee. You are regardless of what they say or make you sign!

EVERYONE should be aware of our labour laws! Companies will BS you every chance they get!
Pros
Free ice cream/free money when they fire/lay you off.
Cons
None
