Family Oriented
Rossdown is a family oriented facility. Unfortunately I'm not getting full time hours to which I need to survive. I go to work and start by sanitizing the wire gloves for e viste. Making sure the knifes are cleaned and ready for sharping once sharpened I put in the individual tots. At end of day I clean the work area for the start of next day

Awful Management
Big company, cares about big money and business. No regard for animal husbandry or employee well being. If it makes them money it works. Doesn't matter how the animals or employees feel about it. They advertise as a family run farm, but this is very misleading. The owner is part of the original family that owned it but that's about it. Very corporate attitude.

Challenging and some great people to work with and learn from
I enjoyed working at Rossdown Farms, mostly due to certain people. It was definitely challenging most days and hectic, but still had some calms days. Regardless of the challenges and stress level, there were some people who made those moments easy by laughing and cracking jokes. My manager was amazing. I sure learned a lot about my own position and how to take my own executive decision when no one was available.
Pros
Free Turkey at thanksgiving and Christmas
Cons
stressful and hectic

Toxic environment
Long hours. At times not even 8 hours between shifts. If they have it in for you then you will be fired. Management needs to be more hands on.
All I can say is watch your back!!
Pros
Sometimes a free lunch if your lucky
Cons
Extremely long hours

Great for your professional growth
Rossdown helped me in my professional growth. It is paying for my education as well. I have flexibility in my work.
Being a payroll and benefits administrator, I have gained the most amazing experience.

I would recommend all the job seekers to apply for the available positions. Even the general labor positions have flexibility in the shifts. The company provides competitive wages and benefit packages.
Pros
Competitive wages and benefit packages

Cheap company
Don’t post an ad for 13 dollars asking for a efficient forklift operator. Are you looking for product to constantly get smashed... nobody in there right mind works for that wage
Pros
Can’t live off thirteen dollars an hour
Cons
This is slavery

Great for university students and high school students.
Working here was fun while it lasted, management however is something the company should improve on, it is a fairly new company so management is still growing, but as a company it should be their priority. General labourers need to be treated with respect, not as machines.
Pros
Flexible work hours and decent wage
Cons
Overtime, company communication, management

Great team work place
Enjoyed working for the Production Company, the employee and the employer were very easy to get along with. I wanted a change of career. Looking for more part-time than full-time.

Young Company, Lots of room for growth culturely
- Production workers are segregated from Management, should be more open.

- Management and Directors care more about themselves then their employees
