Growing, yet a Company who has to learn from their mistakes
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 2 November 2017
The people working there are great, bosses are hands-on. They're not that as open-minded as you've expected to be. There's always a different culture with the people working inside the office and the people working their butts in the shipping and production area.
The problem with this company, they keep on hiring, but the employees are not that sufficient for the work and productivity, they don't have any insurance with the workers and other higher-ranked staff, and they already have the infrastructure, but remained the same old habits. Nothing's changed.
No insurance, growing company but remained stagnant by their cheapstake attitude
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 August 2018
They are not paying the right hours you work. And expect to go home under time i.e after working 4-6 hrs Mgt sucks with unprofessional work ethic .some of the team leads are not mature enough to deal with employees. * they keep on hiring people and they fire with out no reason
*Free grocery to take home which is waste
Great people to work with, free coffe (if you are attracted to free gifts😆😆)
Controller (Current Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 25 May 2018
Great company to work for, everyone is hands on and truly believes in the growth of the company. Within the first two days of working at GoodFood, I had felt more valued than I had my entire 5 years at my past employer. You work directly with those who have built the company. The people you work with are all hardworking, welcoming and open to new ideas.
Please and I repeat Please DO NOT WORK FOR THEM. Sure the pay is above minimum so at first it feels like it is worth it. But it is not. Every person I know who worked there has already quit including myself. The management is so poor. The big bosses are always changing everything. They do not care about you they pretend they do but they dont. They want you To work faster and faster. They make up new lay out All the time and they never make sense. Employees dont even have enough time To get used To the new lay outs. 30 % of people that work there are lazy, the other 40% are immigrants that cannot find another job ( most of them do not speak french). And the remaining 30% somehow ended up at the wrong place but I insure you they do not stay. The cafeteria sucks To put it short It is very cold in the warehouse. The safety is minimum you have To watch every Step you take. The only really good thing about this job is that you could share stories at supper time with your family and your friends of the crazy Things that happened To you or that you saw at goodfood
Even the chef Leads hate their job. AND EVERYONE laughs at the bosses behind their back.
So to sum up: Bosses: sucks Breaks :sucks Wordload: sucks Free food : okay ish Work temperature : sucks People you work with : 50/50 if youre Lucky youll work with hardworking people if no youll work twice as hard Bonus :sucks .. Btw most people dont know this but they are planning on changing their bonus system that would be based on performance .. so if someone works slower than you then you would be penalised.more... Pay: sucks considering that min wage increased Most people do not Last more than 2months there
So, save yourself a mental breakdown and please Swipe leftless
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 25 April 2018
All people working are good, But management is very bad, Poor qualified Managers. No knowledge of how to manage people. They dont have any control on the temperature. sometimes it goes beyond 2 degree and your body starts freezing and they force you to complete the task faster. cafeteria can accommodate only 30 people and they give break to 60 people at once so other people are forced to stand, some even sit on floor and have their lunch. They are improving things only for the office people and not for the people in production.
free grocery on Friday, but quality is very bad
No temperature control, No place to sit during the break, coffee machines are out of coffee and other powder almost all the time, Pressure to work faster all the time.
Member Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ville St Laurent, QC – 24 April 2018
Management is poor. They pick favorites and lots of snakes in the grass. If your mother passes away, they will not let you attend the memorial without giving you a WARNING. Once your three month probation is over, if your stats are good they dont look at that they look at the warning you received 2 months ago.
Manager (Current Employee) – Montreal, QC – 12 March 2018
This company values your opinion, and is open to what each individual has to say and offer. This company is growing at a rapid pace and they still make an effort to ensure you are just not a number in the business.
Free beverages, free food, ping pong, bean bags, people
Aide a la production (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 27 February 2018
Les teams leader sont vraiment cool et très humain . Le salaires est pas mal avec une prime par mois de 8% . Mais le manque de travail est toujours present une journée ils peuvent vous dire que vous ne rentrer pas travailler ou etre sur une liste pour pas travailler cette journée ainsi que nous pouvons travailler et nous faire dire que ont fini maintenant plus de travail rentre plus tot que prevus. Un stress sur les employés sont present et sa ce sent. Rien autour pour manger pas de restaurant ni meme de distributrice et tres petite cafeteria Café gratuit presque jamais de goblet legume gratuit le vendredi bon sa peut faire économiser. Et l'hiver laller de la production non deglacer et presque jamais déneigée
Prime de 8% par mois, superviseur vraiment humain, café gratuit et légume gratuit
Le manque de travail, stress employés, pas de commodité, aller non deglacer en hiver
Very poor management and no structure of organization
Member happiness representative (Former Employee) – Saint-Laurent, QC – 22 January 2018
The managers are for the most, not qualified and hypocrites. The location is far from everything and the company doesn't accomodate the employees for the transports, even though they promessed they would. It's a very stressful environement of work since there's no proper training once you start working. You have to learn on your own and if you make a mistake, you are treated as if you are the problem or as if you are not competent. It was, overall, a very bad experience.
Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Montréal-Ouest, QC – 18 December 2017
Horrible place to work, very poor management -they even dont know how to manage people. Nothing is in control. Best place for the people who are very lazy, dont want to do work and believe in passing on to juniors. If you go and ask any specific details from the manager or director too, they never gonna come back to you with satisfactory answer. This company is running only due to some old folks at lower down otherwise with new management no one wanna work.
free veggies every week
cold environment to work, no support from management, biased policy of management
Quiet and nice place , good for learn different language and much more about our good food . Managers are really good people , here we can find different cultures , the hard part off the job it's work in the fridge and the most enjoyable are the brakes and the pizza day
Member Happiness Specialist (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 6 July 2017
This is one of the most interesting, fast-growing and prominent companies to work for in Montreal. Goodfood makes sure that employees are treated in a fair way, inclusively regardless of differences. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed yet professional and hard-working. A good work-life balance.
The managing system is made so that everyone is accommodated perfectly and depending on their needs. Goodfood deserves 6 stars, but there is no option to give that many stars. The team is amazing and everyone loves working here! It is a pleasure to go to work everyday.
