-20c 6hrs/day!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Enjoyable place to work for any physically capable student looking to stay cool (literally) during the summer months. Most work takes places within the freezer doors, so acclimatization to -20c is required!

Pros

All you can eat ice cream

Cons

Heat Waves = Busy

Dead end job

This place couldn’t possibly get any worse . You will be over worked and completely under paid. You will never see raises or any benefit to working for this company . The whiny bad workers get the special treatment and easy work while the best workers get punished and the worst runs. You will always be expected to pick up all the extra slack from the lazy ones . You will be lied to on a daily basis . They are always short staffed and the managers will dump everything on the few workers they have which causes good workers to leave. It’s really a wonder how a pathetic company like this is still in business.

Fun kind employees

I miss this place, their holiday rules were fantastic. The management was incredibly understanding (most of the time at least). It was lots of fun, I actually didn't mind the overtime during the summer. Plus.....free ice cream.

Pros

Great bosses/coworkers

Cons

No escaping the cold in the winter

Night Shift position

Always busy at work. Typical day at work consisted of order picking, unloading trailers and loading trailers . Enjoyable place to work, with pleasant people to work with.
