Culture Partiality

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A typical day would be busy or less busy depending on the work but work is easy. Requires standing for a long time. Hard to get shifts because of partiality of the production manager. Gives more shifts to gujrati doesn't matter if they joined later or earlier. They get the shifts even if you joined earlier. Can be very toxic environment because of this and hard to grow because less opportunities for you. And the pay is also less for production workers 16/hr


Easy work, no heavy lifting

Work culture

Work culture is leg pulling and supervisors are not supportive. Good pay. Good overtime. Not good for long term. No growth opportunities. Good for freshers.

Lots of potential...

Little to no support. No job stability. However, there is a lot of freedom to do what you need to do, and you are fully in control of your route plan. But, very little opportunity to move up in the company.

Many years working there. I regret every second.

I work for Dare at the Milton for a long time and since leaving there and finding a better job. I can look back on what a dreadful place this was to work at. Where to begin.Typical work day. Normally frustrating. Fixing old broken equipment that maintenance should have fixed already.Lots! But the most important takeaways I learned. Was there are better places to work, and I don't buy their products anymore.Dealing with a supervisor who changes the schedule 3 times in a shift because it's a unorganized mess with no accountably so no action is ever taken. Head office and HR are profoundly unprofessional when dealing with them, on basic or important issues. I saw one good plant manager, and ended up leaving. Workplace culture was toxic when I was there. There are some very miserable people who find enjoyment sharing there misery out to new employees, and or everyone around them depending on the day.Hardest part of the job was the constant drama between people on the floor with each other. Which managers wouldn't address or sometime encourage. Which resulted normally with a plethora of negative consequences. The most enjoyable part of my job was when everything worked relatively well, with minor breaks. The schedule wasn't changed numerous times. Certain people called in sick or booked time off so nothing was an issue between anyone on the floor. It paid the bills for a long time. However I wouldn't recommend working here.

Favouritism for management selected employees.

Management is inexperienced from plant manager ( Who was a rental property cleaner)to the supervisor level.Money is a good factor to work there.Lots of new immigrants hiring and no opportunity for long term employment.


Hourly rate is competitive.


Unexpected layoffs are often.

Stressful and toxic work environment

if youre applying for packaging machine operator,machines are very old like 20y/o and not well maintained.Maintenance people will not prioritize packaging line so better help yourself.Worst,supervisor will write you off if you dont produce good number despite machines are bad conditions.If youre not good at trouble shooting,better look for another company. No HR on site.


High salary

Excellent place to work, very friendly environment

I started off here as a temp worker and earned a full time position after completing my required hours (520). Getting hired on full-time has many benefits including salary and job security, as Dare is unionized through UFCW. I currently work as a reach truck operator in the Cambridge warehouse on night shift, and I love the people I work with. Dare has a very friendly work force, and if you're ever stuck in a bind, need help, or finding yourself getting stressed out, you can basically reach out to anyone on the floor or in HR. Dare is bus accessible for all shifts (excluding weekends/holidays, but nearest bus stop is a 5 minute walk away) Regular bus route stops right outside on weekdays. Being included in the Union also has it's perks with Benefits, Pension and regular pay increases throughout the year and also a safety boot/shoe allowance once per year. If you need some extra time off, you also have whats called "Floater Days" where you will be paid for your shift. During busy periods, you also have the option of working unlimited overtime per week.


Weekly pay, FREE Unlimited baked goods, Long breaks, Great atmosphere, Most people work M-F, no weekends


Not bus accessible on weekeends if you choose to work

C’est correct, mais aussi c’est une responsabilité partagée

C’est une compagnie, ou tu peut apprendre, y’a beaucoup de choses à apprendre, et faire un bon background.Dans le service de maintenance, c’est un bon esprit d’équipe.

Good company

I was only there on contract but my experiences were good. Great management, very professional, and helped me with resources as needed. There was a real sense of TEAM here and I loved the company culture. The Cambridge building and manufacturing facility is amazing. I would love to entertain the idea of coming back one day.


Free food


Not the company's fault but supply chain brings serious constraints to manufacturing

Difficult culture

High turnover of good employees due to long time diffucult employees being too hard to get rid of. My manager, the other person's manager and HR were no help when I complained. I just got 'deal with it' attitude. Stay away from here.

extreme favourism, do not question your

poor training, lack of follow thru by Supervisors, inequality & targeting of discipline, severe lack of possible advancement opportunities, no rotation, resulting in poor ergonomics resulting in multiple injuries and cronic ailments.

Pauses rémunérées

Fast paced, poorly managed,

Got to work with great people. Management was absolutely horrible. You are made to feel worthless and spoken down to on a daily basis. You have next to no support and constantly talked about behind your back. The manger was the worst.


Pay was good


Bad manager
