It's what you make of it, there's 3 warehouses. Some are continental some aren't. If you get full time most likely you will end up on nights. Place is very seniority based, kind of 'uniony' at times.

Terrible upper management; very manipulative

Terrible upper management especially head of sales. Very manipulative and don’t tell you enough to do your job well and then will blame you for it. Inappropriate behaviour from upper management on multiple occasions.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

No life , no support to further your education cause you are forever stuck working the MAD system. Midnights, Afternoons and nights.

Still need to come a long way in updating the plant and the old school way of thinking. People are great but management isn’t. Pay is good but you will work your but off for that raise.


Access to company store

Productive and organized

Lots of stuff to memorize so should be a quick learner. The coworkers and management are great! I love their flex work. A monthly meeting is a plus for me, extra enjoyable part of the company!

Busy, stressful.

Good compensation. Weak in terms of training. Lots of overtime availability. New hires Expect to work 12 hour continental shift patterns. Good to gain experience in a manufacturing environment.

Busy but not overwhelming with plenty of support from co-workers

Pleasant team lead. A fair bit of work involves cleanup from previous team. Other help desk members are also fairly new to this company but clearly skilled at what they do.

It was a great experience

Worked there and had a great experience with coworkers and they help you to advance as you climb the career ladder. Busy and well rounded place to work.

Fast paced environment but lenient.

Very fast pace environment, management wants number all the time to the point that production and safety standards are sometimes being bypassed. Continental shift, so you have to give up 2 weekends per month and so life and work is not quite balance. Salary is above average, employer matched rrsp and medical benefits provided by the company but no bonuses aside from gift cards and turkey on Christmas. Most employees are loyal judging by their lenght of services although you will see frustration and dismay on their faces. In conclusion, I’ll definitely recommend this company to anyone but don’t expect too much because there’s a very little room for growth.


Free coffee, above average salary and benefits.


Long hours and weekend work.

Not great leadership

Leadership fosters a very siloed culture, lacking collaboration financial targets are nearly impossible to hit when you have to rely on other functions to see projects through and no one wants to work together towards common goals

@ the beginning it's fun and excitement, since they change the management because the 2 brothers hire somebody to manage everything has change.

I been working for this company for over 26 years, if i compare before and now is a big difference maybe because so many company's doing the same products ( producing/ distributing Roasted coffee ) as we do. Big difference the way we work before and now, before we don't used computers; now all the machine are Robots, even the company benefits are change too, before 100%; no you need to choice an options according what your family needs. I missed the day when started in this company.
