Supply Chain (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 26 June 2017
Expect to work many unexpected hours outside of business hours and not get recognition or reimbursed in any way. Systems are used poorly, processes are up in the air. There is a high school nature to the management team - lack of maturity - lots of manipulation - which has developed a culture of keep your head down and don't say much. You will be locked into a role if you're good at it. Roles and responsibilities overlap. And their 'experts' are not experts, or if they are, they are enslaved into the convoluted Dare-way. Lots of room for improvement - if you're up for it - they need you. 80% of the people that work there don't say much, the rest actually care and are trying to drive change, very frustrating. Regardless, most of the people are lovely though.

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.

I'm very grateful for the coworkers I work with on a daily basis. There is much room for improvement in this work place. It is always a learning curve and much room to grow in intellect and experience.
meet new people, learn new things daily, close knit with some coworkers
Maintenance Superintendent (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 24 January 2013
No loyalty from upper management, they bury their heads in the sand till a problem is too big then have to make drastic changes to fix it, causing the ones who do the work, even more work. No accountability for upper managers, no one has a clue where they are or what they re doing.
decent pay, start 3 weeks vacation
upper management cant make a decisions till too late, no real leadership from the top
