would not recommend

would not recommend anyone to work here unless you have no other choices. it was an easy job to get as it seems like they would take anyone for general labor and turn over rates are very high

Pros

fast easy hire

Cons

pay, labor intense

Environment stressant - pas de coopération

Management très incompétent. Manque de ressources. Aucune coordination entre départements. Contrôleur désagréable et pas capable de gérer une équipe.

Pros

Produits gratuits

Cons

Pas d'avancement, aucun bonus.

It's a good/bad place to work.

A good place to work if all Machine are running good. Machinery Extruder are too old and not maintain properly Operator need to run the machine in 50% capacity still management want to produce good product. I don't know how this place pass the food grade too dusty the place makes a ton of dust everyday.

Work and no fun

It is better to work in a company where one is recognized for the hard work done. I will never recommend Polar Pak to anyone. The pay is $14.25 and they take off a lot of money from from your pay. We don't get paid properly for the statutory holidays. We can't take vacation and if I'm not wrong, we were not given the 10days vacation according to the government policy.

Pros

Sometimes free pizza

Cons

long and tiring

Good

Easy job always something to do, although they lack team work and communication. There’s money to be made and a stepping stone for people with no experience.

Job security was the issue as company deals with plastic

Now that plastic is going to dimish, employees may lose job security. Overall a nice place to work, great team management. Supervisors and Managers were good.

I enjoyed a positive team attitude and camaraderie in this goal oriented atmosphere. Their training and position progress is enlightening and motivat

Overall this manufacturing complex gave me a healthy and positive sense of truly belonging to a team effort for success. The training they provide and the in house meetings intended to keep everyone updated on the entire companies progress truly afforded one the sense of belonging.

Production a la chaîne

Manque de confiance mais travail avec les collègues agréable malheureusement un manque de gestion et de respect nous ont donner comme impression un manque d'humanisme

Its a place struggling to deal with increased work volume

Over reliance on temp. employees is affecting quality and efficiency. Need to invest more in both equipment and manpower. Struggling to change the work ethic.

Poor management

This company is amazing but the cell leaders and crew leaders are not good specially in the c1 night shift because they do partiality between senior and new employees and they don’t no about ethics, work behaviour. Etc and This company is in Canada but people are still being bullied in there. They don’t listen to agency employees, new immigrants, school schedule off students.
