I liked it there when i used to work there.

I found it stressful at times because of my anxiety. Plus, it was hard for me to work in some areas because I'm not used to doing so many things altogether

Pros

Bring your own lunch was good.

Cons

15 minute breaks were always short: like say 12 minutes

A very humane place to work with a very good supervisor

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

Pros

Very human atmosphere

Cons

A lot of backbiting and conclusions without sincere investigations

Fun workplace

I like working out this company very laid-back and on going and the people are nice to work with and it’s I like how you work alone and. Other then that it’s a great job but the pay can be better.

good company , unclear expectations

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

Ok place to work just poorly managed

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

Okay place

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.

Terrible place to 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.

Pros

Employee sale

Cons

Everything else

Decent place typical factory environment

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.

Pros

Free candy

Cons

Long nights repetitive tasks

Bonne ambiance

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.

no respect from lead hand or supervisor

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.

Pros

vacation, salary and pension

Cons

no respect from supervisor or lead hand

Great work ethic amongst departments

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.
