Very safety conscious place to work among predominantly nice people and a very good supervisor. Work is good and hours of work not bad with good people to work with with very few exception
Very human atmosphere
A lot of backbiting and conclusions without sincere investigations
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.
Help us improve!

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.
Long nights repetitive tasks
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.
vacation, salary and pension
no respect from supervisor or lead hand
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.
