Can not honestly think of anything major at all.

A great place to work, gain work experience, phenomenal management staff!

Working at HyLife was the single most amazing job I've ever had! The staff and management are extremely helpful and diligent. If there is a problem you can solve everybody jumps in and tackles it as a team. Would highly recommend getting on with this team.

People-Focused Support

The company experience is ideal even before employment. The hiring process is done in a timely manner. and the onboarding process has been smooth. I initially thought that my first few days in the company would be difficult but the support I got and continuously get from our department and collaboratively with other departments has greatly motivated me to be my best self at work. I take delight in the seamless integration of the work-life balance which gives me time for myself and my family.

Pros

Benefits, Opportunities, and Stability

Watch your back!

Good job if you were actually allowed to do it without being micromanaged or criticized all the time. Be careful who you trust or ask questions of as you’ll be stabbed in the back. No such thing as TEAM here! Senior management need to live in the real world, not the 1950’s. Not a good working environment.

Pros

Cheap pork twice a year

Cons

Nasty people in some departments

Great place to work if you're part of the "IN" crowd.

Worked at Hylife for a number of years and saw first hand that there is definite favoritism given to a select group of people, namely if you are young (under 35) and are great at sucking up to the managers. The only people that get out of entry level positions at Hylife are those who are either related to senior staff or have kissed up to the right people regardless of how many people they stabbed in the back or gossiped about to get there. Some of the people that have been advanced to leadership roles were horrible co-workers, they gossiped and spoke badly about other staff including the very managers that gave them their new roles. The managers doing the hiring pay little attention to the negatives in the people they advance as long as the person has stroked their ego. If you are under 35 and are great at kissing up you will go very far at Hylife. Anyone else need not apply unless you are happy staying in an entry level job for the rest of your career at Hylife. You will only get the jobs that have the most hands on work and put in the most hours while the "leaders" are able to take vacation whenever they want. Actual work experience and seniority mean nothing at Hylife which has caused the moral in most of the departments to be at an all time low.

Pros

Free meat

Cons

Equality doesn't exist, pay is not great

Love it! Recommended to work here, but too much toxic employees.

Great work, great management. I love the environment, workplace but toxic employees. Talk trash and rumours are everywhere. The job is hard, but good hours, good pay.

Race based Favoritism

Hylife has a seniority based job bidding system. The supervisors place their friends in the higher paying jobs regardless of effort, skills or seniority. If you are born in Canada you will have a harder time to move up in this company. I do not recommend this company for people who are not Filipino. The management at the company are mostly friendly unless you bring up important health and safety concerns which are valid and or concerns regarding improper pay which they will not make any adjustments to otherwise. Products are low quality and workers refuse to try harder due to high stress levels of repetitive high paced work.

Pros

Lots of downtime & Good Benefits

Cons

Overworked, Racism & Improper Pay
