Internship
Associate Marketing Manager Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 April 2018
Worked at General Mills Canada for 4 months as an AMM intern. I was constantly challenged as I worked on business innovation and business management initiatives. Marketing at General Mills is not a 9 to 5 job.

Environnement agréable à travailler
Représentante aux ventes (Current Employee) –  Rive-Sud de Montréal17 December 2017
Produits très intéressant à présenter dans les épiceries, très bonne clientèle d'établie, toujours des ventes répétitives de produits mais beaucoup d'annonce circulaire pour appuyer les ventes. Budget pour le bill back à offrir aux clients, très avantageux pour les gérants. Trop grand territoire, et beaucoup de kilométrage.Objectifs réussis depuis le début (2 ans) à 100%.

Account Development Manager, Longo's (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 September 2017
Not a bad place to work, just wasn't the right fit for me. Almost all of their categories are in decline yet they still have outrageous growth targets year after year.
Pros
The young employees.
Cons
Corporate life and politics.

Millwright
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 August 2017
Read the fine print: "AS OTHER DUTIES AS ASSIGNED". If your expecting to repair/ diagnose problems, maybe 25% of your work, the remaining 75% is filling in for operations lack of staff or skill. Tools, uniforms (if you want them) are provided. Being a GMP plant there are regulations to follow. Clean the tools, the tool boxes etc. Inspections done in lockers, your tool boxes to insure these regulations are being followed. 12 hr. work days, weekdays and weekends. Within the same week expect a night shift and be asked to also work a day shift, or reversed. The pay is slightly below average, but every year drops lower as the annual increase is low. The benifits are on par with any other plant so there fair. The work environment is cold, wet but relatively clean. Coverage is1 electrician and 2 millwrights.
Pros
Uniforms and tools provided
Cons
To regulated, forced OT

Stressful, demanding work environment. Cold/Noisy, and crowd space.
Industrial Mechanic/Millwright (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 January 2017
Not stable work load, production planning can be changing a lot in short time notice, many times per a month or even per a week. Stressful and demanding work environment. Low profession mid range management stressing the system and people.
There use to be a slow production demand, and a hi volume demand production periods, which leave almost no time for life out work. Forced overtime, and long shifts(12 hours).
Pros
Good benefits and RRSP contribution for every one who wants
Cons
Forced overtime, long hours, cold/noisy work environment
