Friendly Staff and Co-workers willing to help me learn
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) – 1 Ferrero Blvd, Brantford, ON N3V 1G3 – 29 July 2018
I worked at Ferrero for a month and I did some heavy lifting and line work but overall it was a good experience with good pay and a friendly staff and co-workers willing to help me learn at my first labor job
International Commercial Quality Trainee (Former Employee) – Luxembourg – 14 August 2018
The company itself is great but if you're not Italian, it will be hard for you to climb the corporate ladder. The people are nice and friendly but with everything there are always cons: the corporate culture

Indeed is unlike anywhere else I have worked. It has an incredibly strong culture for a company that is growing as quickly as it is. Collaboration cross-team is critical, encouraged, and motivating when driving new projects and helping others complete theirs. The overall work/life balance is wonderful and Indeed goes out of it's way to ensure you stay balanced. We have clear goals from leadership and a clear path to achieving them quarter after quarter.
Back Up Team Leader (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 1 January 2018
If you are on the product floor you are treated unfairly , you are a no body. You are easliy replace. If you are a Team leader or above you have it made (you can't do any wrong) favouritism is outrageous in this place. The shift work is really hard on your body.

A typical day at work is when you go in your are assigned the line your going to run and the amount of people you need and have to meet the required percentage of work that day.
I learned how to operate a line, work with a few machines, work with computers, how to sanitize and clean each line at the end of the week, direct and be in charge of 10-15 or more individuals at a time.
Clean and safe work environment, but unorganized at times
Lots of great people to work with but those odd individuals here and there that don't like to listen and make your time not as enjoyable.
The hardest part of the job is being in charge of so many employees at a time who don/t always want to listen and having to direct each person and show them how to do there job on the line and still have to run the line and do all your paperwork and ensure everything is correct. Also having people that don't always work well with each other. The rotating shifts are hard from 1 week days to afternoons to nights. I don't like that when you accept a contract its for a short period of time and you don't no if its going to be renewed or not. They can replace you at any time no matter how long you've been there.
The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new things everyday and meeting new people. When you get a contract the pay is great too.
pay rate is great for contracts, reasonable breaks, good people
I had a good experience but I have seen a lot of mistraeatment
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 26 September 2017
I generally had a very positive experience with Ferrero , My line leads were usually very friendly with me and the work was simple. However I had seem a lot of line leads and higher ups be VERY rude to other employees ( especially temps ) . There are a lot of very miserable people there and that is the biggest downfall.

This company does not care the least about peoples well being or life. They train you tell you, you are doing well and then drop you like a hat, call you a couple weeks later to basically do the same thing.
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 May 2017
Best place to work, earn high end money, and spend a large part of your day. Company is always growing and always looking for skilled workers. Rotating shifts can be an issue if you have a family. Otherwise you can't really complain. Can be noisy and some people can have zero class. But that's the way it is everywhere. Bad place if your past your prime though. Good place for younger people.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 25 March 2017
Only way to get in there is through a temp agency, racism against the Muslim workers, safety oversights and HORRIBLE training. Also if u miss a day u lose the job, bad for anyone with health issues or a family. Zero benefits but if u like overtime there's that...
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Brantford, ON – 20 January 2017
If you are not offered a contract after your first season, move on. I was a permanent employee and was driven out after they found out I was thinking of going back to school. I am now working in the medical field and will never have to answer to someone with a high school education again. Aim higher, applicant!
