Reverse logistics (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON27 July 2019
Lie #1 You will have a job where you can be part of change and really make an impact!

Sadly, you will not have an impact & the only change will be useless HR showing you the door, regardless of your efforts & positive contribution. No one there is passionate about their job AND as for the Danby family, they will throw you under a bus & not think twice.

Lie #2 You will have the ability to work with great people who are passionate about our industry.

Lie #3 ...a great company culture where you're part of the Danby family...
Pros
Working Monday to Friday
Cons
Management who don't know what they're doing, job security, cliques, salary isn't great

high turn over rate of employees
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON16 December 2017
I worked at danby for a little under a year there reasoning to let me go was "i didnt fit in with them" this was just a bs excuse considering i was friendly with many people and they were all shocked for the resoning behind, you never knew what was going to happen one day to the next, in my time there many long-time employees were let go for reasons that made no sense, management is poor and are all unprofessional there is constant change there but not in a positive way. there are some good empolyees there and they did make sure to have fun things planned for their empolyees , HR really needs to learn confidentiality and that its part of their job !

Change Is Needed on Executive Level
Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON13 January 2017
Top management, particularly Supply Chain Dept., and Independents Canadian Sales Dept., are definitely the root of most issues.
The goal of maximizing shareholders' value cannot be achieved when critical activities are managed in the 80s style.
Those who have been doing it the same way for over two decades should be replaced. They will never make things better, they will always resist changes, and they will not accept improvement suggestions.
Other areas, like Logistics & Reverse Logistics, may also need improvements.
Pros
Friendly HR staff
Cons
Top Management:Live in the culture of "The Final Countdown" & "Pour Some Sugar On Me".

Confused Vision
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON24 September 2015
Very well known company and was at the top of their game years ago. Ever changing management and goals have it on a slippery slope. Great people but in a fast paced market with more competition, it is going to be a rough road ahead.
