Horrible
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON7 April 2019
The full time staff are the bosses and the temporary workers get paid half the salary but do all the work and get none of the credit. Only full time employees are given benefits and vacation. Fellow employees treat each other badly, it's like middle school all over again, taking behind your back, telling your boss on you and not working together to get the job done. It came to no surprise to me to see that the brockville plant was closing.
Pros
None
Cons
Treated badly by co workers and full time staff

wasn't great but I needed money
Floor Hand (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON5 April 2019
12 hour shifts were not fun but it put money in my pocket. The work wasn't for me, it was a grind every shift but the people were nice. I would not want to work there again.

Has seen better days
Electrical Instrumentation Technician (Current Employee) –  Brockville, ON24 February 2019
Has been a great place to work with lots of opportunity to develop skills in all aspects of manufacturing from mechanical and electrical to leadership and teamwork.
The focus in the past few years has been on LEAN manufacturing, which has provided more training opportunity and saved the company millions. Workers now have multiple skills and wear multiple hats which, unfortunately, doesn't always allow for mastery of essential skills.
The team environment in the manufacturing departments is supportive and "family" like at my location.
Pros
wages, overtime
Cons
12h shift work, understaffed on the lines

racist and sexist old men
temp (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON13 February 2019
had some nice perks but were strongly outweighed by the old male staff and the environment that they created for women, especially young women.They would place bets on which department would get the hottest student intern during the summer. Keep in mind that the students were not only 17 or 18 but also daughters of coworkers.
Regular sexist jokes and not allowing women to do certain tasks.
Pros
product sales
Cons
sexism, culture

Line Leader, Always Ultra (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON10 January 2019
P&G's operations can be a great place to learn about best practices. Sometimes the resources are scarce but you are given a great platform to learn and advance.

Lots of opportunity
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON30 December 2018
Lots of equipment to learn about.
Some great management; some not so great.
They try hard to hire good employees but some idiots still make it through. Nepotism happens.
Rewarding if you take pride in doing a good job, just don't expect to be told about it.
You get one nice weekend off every month but you pay for it with the shift schedule.
Can be difficult to get proper sleep. If you make a mistake because you're tired, too bad. Lots of pressure to show up for work even when you're sick; then you catch heck for making others sick.

Needs more company continuity - Plant managers change some things which are probably the scope of head office. Departments do the same, so you will see people treated differently based on which department they are in.

Temps get worked hard, miss breaks, and poor pay for their work load.You can be the best worker but if you don't pass the HR test, you won't get full time.
Pros
One actual weekend off per month
Cons
Long days feels longer due to fast switch continental shifts.

sometimes laid back workplace, management could use a few pointers
Contract technician (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON21 November 2018
relatively good place to work, decent pay for the work required. long hours make it a tiring place to be after a third 12 hour shift in a row. when management provides feedback, it tends to be at the end of a 12 hour shift, leaving the one who is receiving the feedback in a tired state of mind unable to properly voice their opinion.
Pros
good people for the most part
Cons
long hours, if management needs to talk to you, they do it at the end of your shift when you want to go home and sleep

Horrible place
Plant technician (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON13 November 2018
Horrible place to work would not recommend, unless you want to be treated bad. But lots of opertunity if you know the right people. And most management are clueless about the issues going on.

Not the company that I was hired for..forgotten that it's employees are its greatest asset..
Technician and Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON17 October 2018
P&G used to be about the people. They were it's biggest asset. I loved working for this company.
This is no longer the case with Procter and Gamble. It has become the same as so many other companies, where the bottom line is king and people have become throw away. The plant that I worked for was ranked number 1 in North America and has always held a position of influence in the P&G community, however, it was determined that it wasn't viable with the 'new' view of the future. They are closing the doors in 2020 and moving all the production to a 'mega' site in the US. Many wonderful employees are being forced to relocate (to another Canadian P&G site, as we cannot work for extended periods of time in the US) or seek employment elsewhere.
