Fast pace Collaborative environment. Poor systems and processes

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Food industry= fast paceWorkin 3 shift 7 days week= focus on collaborative environment.Developing company= processes and systems not mature and developed yet.Lots of waste at all level due to innefective systems poor training and lack of competance. Human retention is an issue.Working environment is spartiate and no frill. Middle management very dedicated,Senior management stategic direction and ability to execute well is questionable.

Disorganized leaders, chaos and mismanagement galore

Goodfood was a pandemic baby business. When I joined the company, business was booming through the lockdowns. A lot of money was dumped into ventures and efforts that were never clearly thought out. Leadership at Goodfood is there for one purpose: to disrupt the market. They were never trying to build a great food company, with a great culture. I would not recommend the culture at Goodfood to anyone, all the best talent turn over and leave either voluntarily or are laid off because the company cannot afford to keep or retain talent.

It’s a good place to work at to start your career as a part time worker if you are a student or even if you are a full time worker.

Working at goodfood is a hard job for a newcomer. But eventually it seems fine as time goes as it will give you many chances to improvise. Also, if no time is wasted then the supervisors support you too even if the portioning (work output) is not very good for the day.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Very cool temperatures

Not a sane environment

You get disappointed at management decisions that are geared towards just their assumptions. You become the problem when you give the right advice about operations.

Easy job but LOW pay

Can be very fast-paced but also sometimes it gets very slow and boring.Mostly English speaking Company so it's perfect for students and newcomers...but not the best if you want to improve your french!be aware of bad-mannered workers \Supers,and lots of shifts are cut due to slow workdays.

Pros

free nearly-expired food

Cons

low pay .. shifts cut

Horrific Culture and Leadership Team

Accepting a job at GoodFood was probably the worst mistake of my career. They have restructured/terminated people at least 5 times since Nov 2021. The teams are so demotivated it’s hard to believe and that is a direct result of the founders. You have no ability to influence/make decisions. The expectation is that you follow direction without question or opinion. Please, please, please DO NOT WORK AT GOODFOOD. Only accept a job with this organization if you are unemployed/need money. If you do, continue looking while you work at GoodFood you will immediately regret it and want to run for the exitYour friendly neighborhood GoodFoody.

Environment correct

Ayant travailler à goodfood en 2017, le commencement au sein de l'entreprise était génial ainsi que l'ambiance avant le changement de direction (l'entreprise étant devenu une machine à fric n'ayant plus aucune considération pour ces employés

Decent place to work

Good enough job, people complain about what been lost but things also have been gained. You cannot please everyone. They are actively trying to listen to their employees which is nice.

Failing company, they promote change as if its positive when they are failing as a business model

Failing company, they promote change as if its positive when they are failing as a business modelThey over hire to fire. Pathedic. lack of company vision, they pretend that change is exciting to be around when they just keep restructuring their business model at the expense of the expense of the employee.

Pros

If you consider being woke a pro than go for it.

Cons

not enough work, always sending ppl home early, again way to woke, they actually promote woman over men, extremely sexist!

Excellent company culture, but hours are very variable

Fantastic coworkers, excellent management, one of the best places I’ve worked, but currently the hours are much too changeable. When the food in stock gets too close to expiry or is “ugly”, it is given away at a weekly staff food giveaway which is an AMAZING perk.

Don’t waste your time

If you want a company that does not care about you or your mental health please apply.They have continually worked on non-issues while we are real struggles and decided (to show you their values) to fire their senior employees when they just hired new ones because they are cheaper…. If that is the type of business you want go ahead but no there is no loyalty or care for the quality of work your provide.

Worst place to work an no job security

I joined Goodfood couple of months ago and to my surprise they laid me off without prior notice. There’s no job security in Goodfood and managers are not approachable. Even people who were hired before 5-6 months were laid off.

Fun workplace

You can be friends with your associates & supervisors but your effort is unseen. They posted you have a chance of promotion…if you are with the same nationality with the supervisors or manager! There are days that your day will be cut off and the following day they will rushed you to finished 6 batches (120bags of recipe per batch) shift of recipes. Though they have free coffee, hot chocolate milk and tea. Cold workplace.

Fast-paced environment and constantly evolving

This role involves a lot of problem solving, quick thinking and soft skills. There are times when it's really busy on live channels which can be stressful. Communication between departments could help representatives be more prepared for influxes of traffic. The KPIs can be hard to attain/maintain, especially CSAT because members often give a bad rating based on their issue and not your service, but it reflects directly on you. There are opportunities to try new things and keep learning, which is nice.

Pros

Learning opportunities, compensation

Cons

Communication between departments, KPIs hard to attain/maintain, high turnover

Not a great place to work

They has lost their edge, moving in the wrong direction. The company doesn’t listen to people they bring in. People are quitting every week. Many restructured and they are bleeding cash. I don’t know if they are going to make it past this year.

Productive if you can hold your own.

This place is a grind fest. Have met wonderful people, but not everyone is on the same page. Co-workers can be lazy yet they think they're working hard. This place is good if you can focus on yourself and do your own thing, otherwise it's a bunch of people that think they know what's right for you. There is no consistency in management, some supervisors will try to micro manage you. This is not real leadership, people like this only think ordering people constitutes as a good leader. Wrong, please learn how to treat people and communicate properly before you take your positions. People are all in the wrong positions. Continuing as is the company will be driven to the ground. There are better companies to work for. You will be underpaid here. Hiring at 16 - 18 is not a living wage. Company has gone backwards in the last year.

Pros

Stable schedule

Cons

Underpaid, lazy coworkers, mismanagement, infrastructure
