Above average pay at a cost.
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.

Worst employer ever!
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!

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
