After multiple years of poor performance, the company cut staff, and expected it's remaining staff to pick up the slack. Those who wanted to remain employed were expected to work 45+ hours a week. The incentive structure was changed to be almost solely based on company performance, which means future incentives are likely to be poor.
Classic scenario, CEO over paid and the non union workers fighting for scraps and substandard benefits. The biggest lesson was seeing how an environment can take decent people and turn them into monsters in order to fight for their livelihood. Go back to school and get out of this industry. The good years are over. The fish has a longer shelf life than the upper management.
Excellent company overall. My manager was superb , great work ethic, family orientated, knowledgeable. Launched several new products that simply underperformed. Innovation was needed to be a better fit with todays demographics . Western Canada and Ontario retail sales are now through a broker. Pay, and benefits were in the top percentile.
Lacked product innovation
A very unstable organization in a state of constant reactive fire fighting initiatives and incapable of learning from its past mistakes. Top heavy on management and could use more resources on the bottom tier to get the job done effectively. Typical cost center approach where money is reluctant to be spent on appropriate tools to do the job. The team is enjoyable for the most part but there was a lack of control over individuals with aggressive tendencies and who were rewarded for bad behavior.
Wages, Fast pace, Challenging work
Long hours, Unpaid overtime, Not a secure place to work, Ineffective training
The most boring job ever. Slow-paced and outdated to the core. Run by people who totally lack the most elementary business sense, and who have been there for ever, mainly because the company is not there to thrive, but just to survive. It is resting of their laurels on when High Liner Foods was the market leader in frozen foods, in the 80's. Now, it is a totally un-dynamic company run by a bunch of VPs who are there to maximize their own personal gain and retirement fund. If you want to be proud of the work you do, High Liner Foods is probably not the place for you.
Great work-life balance, country club life at the office
