Good company but different directives from every management team member. Enjoyed the company but they are missing opportunities in the community to build priest
Product recognition and build Canadian brand
Its a faced paced environment and can be very labor intensive. It was poorly managed and can be frustrating at times but it was a decent job for what it entailed. Overall my experience was positive. I made good money and got to work with good people.
No culture sometimes things you do are the worst thing ever then their not then they are again then comes the rule changes that aren’t followed through with on a weekly basis it seemed to be rules for some no rules for others. Overall needs better/more consistent management
Management changes alot, the past 4 years we have had 4 plant managers....over this time not just the management but the plant itself has changed a bit they have expanded and new equipment put in place with the hope to improving sales but this is all the company seems to care about. Employees are not supported the way they should be at the plant and the human resource department never returns calls or emails.
They pay is okay but if u want to get benefits with the company be prepared to spend at least $250 a month for basic health/ dental
Also milton is the ONLY plant not unionized all others are.
The company is riddled with favouritism. You can’t climb the ladder by doing a good job but by sucking up to the higher ups. Incompetent leadership especially in their Cambridge facility . Must avoid for people who are looking to advance in their careers through honest work.
Worked at Dare as a picker for a little while in the cherry blossom location. They expect you to slave for them with no thanks. They offer you a contract get your hopes up ,than give contracts to others and give you no reason as to why. Unionized but you have to pay a premium for benefits.
Staff was good to work with easy going, not much room to move up unless been there a while and night shifts were hard to adapt to. Pay was like $16 a couple years back and you get an extra $1 premium for night shifts.
Une compagnie familiale et belle équipe de travail. J'y travaille depuis 19 ans. Malheureusement déménage dans un an en Ontario. J'ai été opératrice et chocolatiere. Formatrice et délégué en santé sécurité.
Lead hand and supervisor have no clue the physical work the employees do.
The employees in the packing line all they do is complain and should mind there own business.
Some employees will get you in trouble and cost you your job.
Dare Foods is a Canadian family owned business and truly feels like a family environment. The people are super nice and always willing to help out when they can.
Unfortunately the benefits could be improved as no matter what level you choose you always have to pay a premium.
For the amount of work being done you are not compensated at all. You may get a thank you but nothing more. Very high pace work environment which is great from day to day but when people leave or retire there is a large gap between rehire if they rehire at all. Dare is very cost focused which is understandable but take people for granted.
Dare Cambridge is one of the most toxic work environments you could ever work in the management and supervisors are not leadership material. They don't hold anyone accountable the company claims to be about family but this is the furthest thing from the truth over all moral is low. I would not suggest anyone work here at all you cant even talk to head office about any issues because they don't care and it shows turn over rate is over the top and i can't blame people for leaving. If head office would actually talk to its people on the floor instead of treating them like they have the plague things could be sorted
its a job
to many to list need to clean house at the top and get people oriented mangers and supervisors
