Quality (Current Employee) – Newport News – 28 November 2018
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
A true country club run by leaders who lack leadership skills and business acumen
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto – 11 November 2014
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 Slow-paced and outdated to the core.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
