Pire endroit ou j’ai travaillé
mecanicien industriel (Former Employee) –  East Angus, QC15 March 2019
Les 3 premiere annee ont ete merveilleuse. Les 3 derniere on ete horrible. Nouvelle direction. Cest le genre d’endroit où la competence des gestionnaires est des plus horrible. Embiance de travail maladif et empoisoné. Dicision d’entreprise a sens unique par imposition et sans consultation. Ne donner jamais de votre temps profesionnel a une compagnie qui ne vous estime pas et qui se fou de vous. Quart de travail horrible. La depression et les burnout regne au pied carré. Favoritisme. Aucune posibilité d’avancement. Incompetences. Santé de l’entreprise en chute libre. Si venir chercher une paie est votre seul critère pour un travail vous etes a la bonne porte. Mais si l’ambiance de travail l’appréciation,la bonne gestion de l’entreprise faient parti de vos critères, courré loin de là.
Pros

MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 March 2019
My supervisor was amazing when it came to advancement, and scheduling. They restructured management, and it all went downhill pretty fast. They expect You to fulfill their commitments with no concern to your home life. Most times they would change your schedule without a weeks notice. It is written in the contract with the Association, they are allowed to. This agreement is based out of the 80's. The Association is meant to protect You from the 80's mentality of management, but with no real knowledge of how to go about it. If you like being harassed by management about numbers, this is the place for you.
Pros
Used to have free luncheons once or twice a month, but has since diminished
Cons
Management expect miracles, machines run 24/7 with no PM. Lots of downtime.

Weber Operator (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON5 December 2018
This place is pure Garbage!! All they care about is bags per employee!! Safety?? HAHA ZERO. You hurt yourself and management gets their loser leadhand to harass you till you quit! The place is unionized but there’s way too many “union members” kissing managements a-s Absolutely pathetic! They give you no reason to strive and do a better job at all. Way too much favoritism. No chance to get promoted to anything! They spend zero money on equipment or upkeep with their 1950’s machines! It’s like walking into a shop in the 1930’s!!! Run Run Run Run like I did!!
Pros
Money
Cons
Everything is cr-p here!

Certified Red Seal Millwright (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 September 2017
Hood paper is a cool spot for a Millwright, especially apprentices do to the wide range of experience you will receive from the wide range of equipment you will see. Almost all of the people in leadership roles are great people.

Horrible place, run far away
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Ontario19 August 2017
-Supervisors, managers, and HR all seem to be friends so good luck if you ever have a problem
-No real safety or ergonomic initiatives which leaves many people injured from repetitive work; feels as though you stepped into a workplace in the 1960s
-Unionized environment where everyone is just out for themselves; everyone backstabs, talks about others behind their backs, and no one really helps anyone; highschool type workplace
Pros
wage
Cons
Everything else

Good pay and benefits, with a lot of bad!
Millwright (Current Employee) –  Guelph, ON10 October 2013
Lacking in organization and management of personnel and production. Unionized environment, good pay and benefits, but lacking in job security for lower seniority employees and classification of jobs. Lacking morale standards of trust, from management and employees, as well as enforcement of safety regulations, and company policies. Inconsistent with employee shift scheduling, causing interruptions with family and personal living. Workplace is unsanitary, for a company producing packaging for human consumables.
Pros
Pay, benefits, paid lunch period, and unionized.
Cons
Mismanaged, lacks morales and honesty, unorganised, too many employees with injuries taking weeks to months off, inconsistent scheduling, unsanitary, inapropriate disposal of waste chemicals.
