Light Packaging - Productive but intolerable.
Packaging (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 20 July 2016
I'd just like to state that Prodigy Personnel is a great place to find a temp job if that is what you're looking for. Excellent service and staff.
However, the job was a little bit too demanding, in my opinion.
A typical day at work would consist of standing in one spot for 7.5 hours and packaging cereal boxes.
Don't get me wrong, this job is easy but it takes a toll on your upper body (shoulders/arms/hands) and especially in my case, feet.
When I'd come home from work, I would go right to bed, just to wake up with even more pain. I would take painkillers before and during work but they wouldn't really help for long.
The other staff members were really nice and showed me how to package properly, they didn't let me suffer when I didn't know how to package something properly.
I eventually had to resign because the pain was intolerable for me but everyone has a different pain tolerance. I'd also recommend this job to those who don't weigh much or who are already fit. It is light packaging but if you are overweight, your lower limbs will suffer.
Experience, body workout, early release, great staff
Long hours on your feet, short breaks, painful
