Repetitive, cold, slave labour. Anyone who works here deserves at least a living wage. I worked here for 1 day and it was one of the worst jobs I've ever had. Save your time and your back, go work somewhere else!
Pros
None
Cons
Repetitive, noisy, underpaid, cold, long shift, mandatory overtime

Don't even think about working there. This company needs to be shut down for many many reasons. They'd be better off in some third-world country where there are no labour laws or safety laws or general decency towards workers. Management is full of great examples of terrible humans.
Pros
None
Cons
There's a long list. Do you have a half hour?

Had an interview and then a group orientation. The orientation was straight forward, but the QA that ran it was extremely condescending and they liked to remind us that we were being overpaid (we weren't, everyone in BC knows that the minimum wage is hard to live off of especially if you have a family). To top it off I ended up declining the job and was sent my cheque for the day of orientation which I was shorted 30 minutes on. I honestly would not recommend this company to anyone no matter the pay and hours (they work you to the point of burnout).

I have worked in Britco in the production team. Have enjoyed the entire period, the supervisors are good, HR is very helpful. You get enough number of hours, supportive colleagues. Overall a good place to work.

All I can say is don’t waste your time and life. Terrible management and environment. Supervisors in all departments are useless and don’t care at all.

Management is very poor, they are very biased towards a special set of people,if they get offend at anything they will not let you work and will give you stress untill you leave the job. Plant Superintendent is very arrogant, treats people like her slaves, very rude and sarcastic all the time.. thinks only she is working and others are passing time, plant manager also listens to her only, as if she is her boss.. Not a place to work for sure .

- Warehouse manager doesn't know what he's doing - major lack of communication - if you're not Filipino, you will be alienated in the warehouse - extemely inappropriate and disrespectful co-workers in the warehouse - management would rather protect bullies rather than the bullied

Grossly underpaid for the slave driver type environment. Starting wage is less than I made in a similar plant in Manitoba in the early 2000s. Classify you as a part time worker so they don't have to pay benefits, yet mandatory OT every day

Management was bad and they literally don't care about the workers' person al lives or other commit ments while they'll just leave through the day when ever they feel like it. HR lady is mean est one there is in the whole company along with a bunch of higher up employees literally ye lls for no reason and thinks she can have everything here way when everyone knows how she really got her position as HR*wink*. she for ces people to come into work even if you got hurt on the job and forced a women to sign a paper that she won't go to WCB by threaten ing her that she ll lose her job.their health team is also do not care you can br eak almost every health code there is and they still don't c are unless the inspec tors are there that is the only time they really care. That place needs to be shut down for that. Some of the male workers are married and still h it on you and g rab or say sh it to you that highly wrong to the young er emp loyees. the women that work there have no thing be tter to do than to gos sip and make assump tions about others lives and many get mad when their husbands or man talks to you. I would get yell ed at by my supervisor and HR for having my work done quick ly and helping others or talking to others after finishing my job. they like to promote that you can go hig her up in the company but that's b s. some employee literally take adva ntage of the company just walking around at the end of the day to make hours and get paid to do nothing
Pros
nothing
Cons
the whole company

Forced OT regularly. Plants are generally heavily short-staffed. Massive employee turnover. Hire 12 employees in a week and lose 14. That's the pattern. No one coming in stays and with good reason. HR people keep quitting because of unfair expectations. Management doesn't really care about employees. Poor safety record Wages and benefits are below average Very cheap company in every respect.

Boo. Not impressed with any help human resourses gave after injury. Supervisor was worse. No sympathy. Tools constantly went missing and stolen by others.

The work place is very interesting. people there are very respectful specially the whole administration. I enjoyed working with different diversity and I can say its one of the best work place that i ever worked with. I learned how to value and manage time specially during work hours, I learned to go to different routes. I did not find any difficulties in the job because I enjoyed every moment. and i can say the most enjoyable part of the job is when you can get along with everybody.
Pros
smile to everyone
Cons
when weather is bad

I don't believe necessary tools are available for one to succeed. The environment is somewhat toxic, and the management is disengaged from the mid-level and front desk employees
