High turnover
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Elmira2 January 2019
High turnover at this employer. Come across as family oriented and as if your important. Not the case. Not paid for overtime, expect long hours and change of shifts. Take your ideas and input it towards their growth, give credit to owners/management for it then dismiss you as nothing. They definitely favor some staff and will only look at the work of those people so ensure you document what you do and stand up for yourself or else you'll be overlooked
Pros
Benefits, pay
Cons
Long hours, not paid overtime

Great company. Industry leader.
Manager/Owner (Current Employee) –  Elmira, ON17 December 2018
The company has been the industry leader for 60+ years and is now transforming again! It is disrupting the industry - new services to customers, animal welfare standards, technology, training, talent management...the list goes on. Riverdale continues to challenge the status quo. So fun to be a part of it. Exciting to work for the industry leader. Can’t wait to see where we’ll go next.
Pros
Dynamic work environment
Cons
Difficult to be a star as the team keeps getting better

The Riverdale Standard
HR Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 December 2018
It is a great place to work. Everyone treats you with respect, and the environment gives you plenty of opportunities to grow and become more diversified in your skill base. The experiences have been the best in my career thus far and I feel like it is a great place to build my career.

Job Culture
Exciting place to work with lots of growth opportunities
Manager (Current Employee) –  Elmira, ON22 December 2018
Senior management team members set the tone that frames the Riverdale culture, demonstrating solid work ethic, open-door policy, open to new ideas from all areas/levels within the organization, and committed to supporting team members in their personal development and in removing removing roadblocks preventing us from achieving our goals.
With growth comes both success and challenges/opportunities for improvement. Sometimes there's too much work for the existing team to handle. Fortunately, the owners recognize that and have hired/are hiring more people to relieve the pressure.
What I've noticed both in the workplace and in reading reviews written by current & former employees, is that the happy and fulfilled team members are those who speak up when they need help and, sadly, those who keep their problems to themselves remain unhappy. My advice: work hard, maintain life balance, and when it gets hard to do both speak up to your manager -> they really do listen and provide support!
Pros
Friendly workplace, lots of freebies (gifts, lunches, etc.)

Dirty and smelly, good money but start times are all over the place.
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Elmira, ON20 April 2018
If you don't mind getting dirty and putting up with the smell the money is good. Hours are all over the place. Poor communication from upper management which is causing low morale. Equipment is ok but shop needs help in maintaining growing fleet.
Pros
Dedicated truck
Cons
Poor communication and irregular hours.

Job is ok
Truck Driver (Current Employee) –  Elmira, ON17 March 2018
Pay is ok for the work you do.
Home time can be ample but is not easy to have without issues
If the the issues by drivers were handled better by management this could be a great place to work.
Pros
Pay for time put in is good
Cons
High mileage equipment
