Labourer/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 6 April 2018
Sold western waffles within a couple years of buying it. They came in and didn't even fix or change anything. Made it worse. The head honcho wasn't pleasant at all. if you said hi while walking by him he didn't smile or acknowledge that you even existed. We were just a number to him.

Good place to work for. People are friendly and get along with everyone. Their benefits should be a little bit better and the rate of pay should be increased for employees. The managers are very approachable.
Sanitation (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 21 February 2017
Good place to work, with an average workload. Very repetitive work though, with little chance of advancement. Current supervisory staff lacks direction at times, resulting in repetition of tasks; such as re-cleaning an area due to poor task management.
Conagra was a great company to work for ; from decision making,to creativity,to negociate within guidelines,to set up your own weekly work schedule,as long as objectives were met, freedom to manage was highly respected

it was ok could have been a cleaner environment. shift was continental nights. layoffs for lower seniority happen often. the company is always being bought by somebody. it is a union facility, but the union isn't very good.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 28 April 2016
My time at Conagara was a great learning experience, I took every opportunity to learn new production aspects. My daily routine varied through out the years there, as new positions opened and my seniority grew, allowing me greater job options. The hardest part of a production job is the repetitiveness, and how to stay focused on the same task for hours on end, I found singing in my head to be effective. I formed many lasting friendships with my co-workers that I maintain to this day. I was greatly saddened with the news of Conagara closure.
Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 22 March 2016
my job allows me to work at my own pace and do the job how I see fit and decide the best way to get my job done in a productive way. management works good with workers getting things fixed to so I can do my job in a reasonable manner . the hardest part of my job is dealing with the cold in the freezer and all the oldest product to ship on a daily biases. I have learned hos to use a lot of different tools and machinery on my job along with time management skills
Mixer Operator at ConAgra Foods (Current Employee) – Georgetown, ON – 15 February 2016
ConAgra Foods is a friendly working environment. Working there, I have learned to further develop my organizational skills. Being a, mostly, independent environment, I learned to organize my time well to ensure the continuation of production. the management are insistent on rules and expect us to follow those rules, regardless they are more of a laissez faire type of leaders. Co workers are always there willing to help whenever help is needed. the hardest part of the job would be lifting over 20 kilograms of flour bags when mixing a batch.
