SUMMER SALES REP INTERN (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 September 2018
Labatt has a great culture if you are willing to adjust to the tough work/life balance due to the volume of products they handle on a daily basis. Co-worlers are there to help you learn and everyone works well as a team.

Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 20 June 2018
Labatt is a great company. it pays well and benefits are good. there is no room for advancement due to over crowding. It has a very young warehouse staff. this fact makes it near impossible to become full time at this company.
manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 18 June 2018
face paced environment, very competitive people will throw you under the bus and flat out steal you work and call it their own. good starting point for new grads, but once you are established get out and make some real money. there will be no work life balance, just work. bonus is very good, but does not come about very often.
Logistics Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 5 April 2018
Typically daily routines involve morning team meetings, followed by daily production balancing of the previous days production. Then there is always a raw material inventory count happening daily to ensure all just in time deliveries are going to meet the weekly production schedule. There is a weekly balancing of the sales to certain vendors as well as cross reference check with inventory cycle counts done daily to make sure all produced finished goods are accounted for. Then there are weekly and monthly end reports done up on Microsoft excel to record individual daily productions and sales. Inventory counts include raw materials from glass bottles to ingredients to bottle stoppers and labels. Also weekly counts of products in the warehouse are done in order to make sure all numbers from head quarters add up to our numbers produced in the system. The warehouse is also audited weekly to check for quality assurance. From tightness of shrink wrap around the finished product to pallet squareness of stacked pallets in the warehouse, all of this is recorded and put into the weekly reports. The beer on hold is checked daily and when passed inspection from quality it is either released back to the storage or sent back upstairs to be dumped and re ran. The hours are normal operating times from Monday to Friday eight am to six pm. There is a huge sense of culture in all Labatts operating facilities. The hardest part of the job is making sure all counts are completed on time and entered into the system before the deadline so that all numbers will be in order before daily production begins.more... Working in a brewery is a great team environment as everyone works together to get the goods produced. Labatts is a world wide leader in beer sales and has high quality standards.less
Many team employee functions, weekly lunches and friendly staff.
PROMOTIONAL SERVER (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 7 March 2018
Working with Labatt has allowed me to showcase my outgoing personality. It really allows you to engage with customers and explain why your quality of beverages is the best. Being able to work in small groups allows for an enjoyable workplace. Management has been great throughout.
Alexander Keith's Brewery (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 2 March 2018
My coworkers were very pleasant. A typical day at work consisted of back to back tours. The script allowed for minimal naturally occurring interaction with guests. It gets you used to talking in front of people, but I found it was very mechanical. My boss was professional and understanding, although not especially approachable. But, I have rarely had a boss who is professional, yet approachable. She placed me working with the same person everyday of the summer because she sensed we were acquaintances. The woman, although kind, was twenty years my senior, and I was rarely placed with coworkers my own age. This added to the lack of variety.
Productive workplace with constant teamwork required.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 February 2018
Working at Labatt's Brewery taught me many different skills. A slower moving workplace that requires teamwork for full production. The management was pretty mediocre for many reasons. They were constantly worried about catching workers doing things they weren't supposed to do and not looking at the bigger picture. Definite need of improvement in the management side but overall decent job.
