Production General Labourer (Former Employee) – Cornwall, ON – 12 March 2019
You have to wake up very early since morning shifts start at 7:00 and right away you are placed on the line. You are treated like a machine really.
The long shifts and harsh physical labour will make your feet and hands sore. Sometimes you'll have to lift 50 lbs boxes of hams for an hour straight which will destroy your back and they don't slow down. Also your in a cold environment, which might not feel so good during the winter.
The staff are just as cold as the plant. There are some nice ones but generally everyone is miserable. If they paid $3 or $4 more than minimum it MAY be worth it but they won't unless you've worked there for years.
They do award generous bonuses for not missing a day for the whole year, and there is a lot of job security since there is a high turnover. It's definitely not a job for everybody though.

Pork cut (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 19 December 2018
Standing for 8 hours all day with a break every 2 hours might sound like it's not that bad, but the truth is you're in steel toe boots standing on concrete which is horrible on your heels... They start you in the hardest jobs first and you have to gain seniority to get into the easier jobs which is difficult when majority of the easy jobs are taken up by people that have been there 15 to 30 years and you have to bid for new jobs which are based on seniority as well.
There really is no easy jobs everything is physical and everything demand's repetitive motion and repetitive bending, either your back will cramp up or your shoulders, fingers,neck.
Some of the trainers are really great the address the issues they see if you're struggling and they make sure that your taken care of same goes for some of the foremen. Office management was pretty good our trainer through orientation was great, very friendly able to answer any questions that we had.
No free lunches during orientation which I thought was kind of cheap. Not allowed to leave the property for your 30 minute lunch so they basically want you to stay there and spend your money in the cafeteria and the food is okay but it's nothing special.
Work there for a year and you'll become a vegetarian. Doesn't matter where you work in the plant you will end up with blood on you and you will end up going home with pork fat all over your pants or your boots.
The store that everyone gets excited about where you can purchase meat directly from the plant isn't available to staff until you pass your 480 qualification hours ormore... your 3 months probation, which isn't fair!
if you do take the job I recommend you purchase ear muffs because the earplugs not only bother your ears if you're not used to wearing them, but you can't hear anybody with the ear plugs in at least with the earmuffs you can hear something.
if you show up for work and you are not on the floor at 6 a.m. ready to work in your proper PPE you will get a verbal warning eventually leading to termination for being one minute late.
And if you listen closely a lot of the staff that aren't foreigners seem to be ex-criminals that have served Federal time.less
Monday to Friday, 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with potential for an hour and a half to two hours overtime each day
Too early of a start time, incredibly strict rules to follow which are much more worse then any rules you follow in school.
Électromécanicien (Former Employee) – Anjou, QC – 6 December 2018
Culture d'entreprise mauvaise, sérieux de la chefferie ridicule, manque clairement de discernement et de professionnalisme, roulement d'employés incommensurable, esprit d'équipe, quelle équipe? Historique de problématiques relationnelles employés/employeurs peu reluisant. Guéguerre perpétuelle entre les deux et tout le monde y passe. Machinerie neuve ou assez récente mais manque de pièces pour réparations continuellement. Formation interne, informations et collaboration des parties en nettement décrépitude. Dans l'ensemble, essayer donc de vous trouver autre chose. Le salaire n'en sera que meilleur.
Trop long à énumérer mais salaire mauvais, conditions de travail difficiles, relations de travail à l'interne comme une garderie, pas d'écoute de la part de l'employeur, historique de chamaillage entre les parties très épais.
un bon endroit pour avoir des formation differents

Fun place to work at but there is a big lack of management.
Électro-mécanicien (Current Employee) – Lévis, QC – 20 November 2018
A typical day at work on weekends is pretty nice. You are given a bunch of jobs and you do them in the order you judge is correct. You never know what your gonna do each time you clock in. I learned a bunch about mecanics and electricity. The management is pretty lame tough because it is a very big company but there is a lack of budget. It is a good place to learn about the industrial domain but its not a place that tends toward continuous improvement. Most enjoyable part is that your not to rushed to do your job on a daily basis. The bad part is that you cant change the way things are because there is a ton of person above you that dont know nothing about technical aspects of the industry blocking. Too much normalization. you also have to be willing to deal with all the rules of the food processin factory.
