Good employees/management
Difficult to find a balance between work and home. Inter workplace friendships are common, a lot of drama between staff. Troubles with finding shifts added to your schedule with very minimal notice.

not serious company/do not even return applicants
Regarding the application, I have not been given any feedback, not even complying with the courtesy of doing business. Do not waste your precious time with this company.

Great work environment, but expected too much of a part-time
Working at Purdy's was an enjoyable experience. The supervisors and other employees were patient and congenial. As a student, it was difficult to balance work and school, but my managers at the time were very accommodating.

this isn't a great place to work
i don't know who's giving these reviews because the work environment isn't great in factory
the people only associate with each others ethnic group, very unfriendly workers

favouritism given to own ethnic group

Team work
It was a great experience to work for this company. They taught me to be more responsible and since most of them have been there for more than 13 years, they taught me to work smarter and harder

Interesting seasonal job
It is quite fast paced and there are going to be lots of people. Hardest part of the job, random customers yelling at you for no reason. There is lots to learn and expect to know your stuff.

Great full time everyday seasonal job!
The hours did provided great on site seasonal experiences for 3 months contract !
The people as supervisor were great! Lockers area was provided in the first day but the only thing about stressful life was to get up early in the morning from 6am - 4pm work wise! Great experiences if you love to make chocolates!

Fun workplace with great coworkers.
The environment was really amazing to work in. The management people were very friendly and your coworkers can make it really fun to work. There were many learning sessions when the time came for the program that Purdys offers for fundraising. The hardest thing would have to be keeping up the level of service when it gets really busy.
Pros
Free Chocolate everyday
Cons
long commute

Fantastic work environment
Everyone is nice and welcoming. The warehouse smells like chocolates, milk, and nuts.
Best management because they actually care about their employees and go above and beyond.

Awesome place to work
A typical day at work included cleaning and selling chocolates, makes boxes up of chocolates, taking phone calls and setting up displays. Management was amazing.

Divide unfair job
They only care about their permanent staff., even they have special seats in food room. For permanent employees and supervisors wear gloves and cover the hair are not necessarily. Some of them is too rude.
