Fast paced environment and lots of overtime. Difficult to deal with employees and schedules. Management oftentimes jumps the gun on people that. Don't fit in their clicks.

Was fired for excessive absences, but the only reason i had excessive absences was due to following the companies and governments COVID policies. Despite being told many times by a few managers that It would not count against me. No warnings or write ups. Just fired
Pros

A typical day at work requires you wear PPE and dress warmly as it is very cold while working on any of the 4 lines that you may be on. The hardest part of the job is working in one spot for long periods of time, therefore your body gets stiff and you need to remember to stretch before work and during when lines go down for maintenance. Its a very repetitive past paced job that can be a bit boring and tiresome at times. its very easy work if you can handle repetitive work.

As working with Grand Rivers food company i felt i have learned how to work with a group of people. As, everybody had their own particular job to do, i have learned how to operate machines as well as how to maintain cleanliness.

Oh my ? This company has no regard for employees well being ? Dysfunctional and very abusive management ! Maintenance department is always waiting for parts and then the wrong parts come in and then they have to re order . Maintenance have no support .The workers are hard working ,but don't a take day off for personal reasons they will track your work record and fire you if you do it to often ! office people are snobby.

Where do I start, probably the part where hard work gets you nowhere in this company and if they don’t like you they will find any reasons to say you’re not a good fit while just trying to save money by not paying for employee benefits or pay raises. Much easier to hire a batch of temps that can do the same easy job for a fraction of the cost. If you have any dignity you would not come here to work after reading the majority of reviews.

Not a good company to work for.
they mess up the pay and take over a month to fix it.

Management lies to everybody about the schedule when they don't give anybody hours for a day when they didn't book that day off, and tells everyone that they are scheduling everyone Monday - Friday which they haven't.

they have violated safety percussion's by blocking doorways.

Rampant favoritism, sexism, nepotism and unsafe work practices. A lot of improper practices and disregard for workplace safety goes on behind the scenes. They treat their employees horribly, the plant manager is condescending and belittling, the supervisors are petty and the team leaders are all mentally beaten down and spiteful. They only enforce the rules when they have a grudge against that employee.

pent a few years at this company. It's a revolving door of employment. Managers harass employees, swear and insult them, and Lead Hands are just the same. They treat white people way worse than anyone else.
Dangerous chemicals are handled freely without training.

The Sanitation Department is definitely the worst for it. New management isn't working out, and the supervisor somehow gets away
Pros
Lunch, Money
Cons
Management, lead hands

There are some good people here. Co-workers were the best and management was biased and ran on favouritism. If they do not like you, you will not have much luck on moving into other positions. The management system needs a complete overhaul.
Pros
Employee discounts on food, some co-workers
Cons
Management, wages, work-life balance
