The job pays decently for the work and the benefits are pretty decent

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There was high turnover particularly on the midnight shift because the supervisor is a real power tripper and full of himself although everyone sees him as incompetent.

Pros

Benefits are good

Cons

Disorganization, lack of leadership, poor morale

Will wait till your probation ends to terminate employment, dont waste your time.

This was quite honestly the most demeaning job I have ever worked. Management expect far too much out of you, such as constant overtime. If you are unwilling to work overtime, you will not be hired.This company has extremely high turnover as they tend to let people go within the 6 months. You are only given a 10 and 20 minute break they are legally required to pay for, they try to frame it as paid breaks when in reality it's something that's legally required.Extremely unorganized and poor management. Rude, unsupportive management that has very little regard for employees time or health. Numerous covid outbreaks, we work together at very close distance. Do not apply to this job unless you're looking for temporary employment, not worth the pay, and not worth destroying your body. The people who work there are extremely miserable, they intentionally keep people who will tell you the truth about the company away from new employees.

Pros

Co workers

Cons

Forced overtime with very little notice

Good pay, no job security

Upper management is out of touch with day-to-day needs of employees lives. Not worth investing your time into trying to make your mark. You will be fired for needing a couple mental health/physical health days off before your SIX MONTH probation is up.

Don't bother.

At first glance this company appears to have it's act together. Aptitude test, prompt interview and extensive safety training. What it doesn't do is prepare you for the atmosphere on the plant floor. As far as unions go, this is the worst example i've come across. Toxic. Keep in mind this is a box factory; nobody is saving lives or solving world peace. People here treat their employee numbers like a rank to be saluted. You'll be under the microscope for your 6 month probation, fair enough. But it's not just management you have to justify your existence to. 1/10 plant workers here are tolerable, 1/20 is even pleasant. I feel badly for temp workers from the agency who are treated with casual disdain. The work itself isn't bad. On a slow day, you'll be sweeping the floor for 8 hours. On a busy day, you're feeding Ace Bakery boxes at speed for 8 hours. The environment itself isn't terrible either. Noisy, hot, dusty but you get used to it. If you love social politics and feel like ingratiating yourself to some of the most ignorant people in Ontario, this is the place for you. Otherwise, don't bother.

Pros

Predictable Schedule

Cons

Workers, HR dept.

Radical hours, monotonous work

Good pay, didn't enjoy the work or the people i worked with. Was good factory work, had too many managers and didn't know who to contact. Hardest part of the job was lifting pieces of cardboard for 8 hours a day.
