Herbaland Naturals Inc. Employee Review
Avoid this plce if you can
If you like to feel like being a lab rat, this is the one. Owner is EXTREEMLY OBSESSED with his CCTV cameras that he had them installed in every corner in office. What a freak. Also, HR, please learn on how to speak better English. You sounds like you are eating and trying to speak at the same time.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We will continue improving in all aspects, including language articulation. The company uses the help of surveillance cameras to improve the security and safety of our employees. The surveillance cameras are not hidden, all employees are told about the purpose and rationale of it. Herbaland won the Consumers Product award at the BC Export Award recently and without the company’s constant improvements, our employees hard work and dedication this wouldn't have been possible. We understand that not everyone canbe the right fit for the company and this is the reason why we have a probation period.Kind regards, Herbaland Team
The work involves the following: ensuring compliance with different regulatory bodies; formulate recipes; organize sensory, lab trials and over-see production scale-up processes; manage production on a day-to-day basis; production troubleshooting; draft NPN applications; drafting marketing materials; research ingredients & be up-to-date with current trends and new technologies; coordinate between departments to arrange production; source raw materials, and many more functions that cross with other departments. This type of work yields a lot of valuable experience....However, the company pays way below average wage for the volume of work and the responsibilities given; stress levels are often quite high. Management fails to properly acknowledge and retain talent, resulting in high turnover rates of office employees. The vision of the company is not all that clear; morals are sometimes pushed to the side; health and safety of both employees and customers are often low priority. There's a general sense that revenue is more important than maintaining and improving quality.
Occasional pizza party
Pay, benefits, management
I don't agree with comments saying that this company is the worst place to work. I have been working for this company for years and I've never learned so much compare to any other companies I worked for. Lots of great perks and benefits. Company is investing in technology to make job easier.
4 stars for co-workers, 0 star for the owner. 100% agreed with all previous comments about cameras and management (owner). I have experienced it and wish did not apply there. Unless if you are desperate looking for a job, please look somewhere else. One day owner love you, next day you are fired without warning or explanation and mess up your life.
