one of the best companies but very terrible work place, if you are from East Asia then this is the right place for you since most officers and production employees are from Eastern Asia and you will be treated good
fair pay & benefits
favoritism / racism
Very organized in their on board process, clear communication, good benefits and rewards, a lot of sports and social activities. Only problem: difficult to advance.
Activities for employers
Difficult to get a promotion

Je suis vraiment déçu la façon qu'on amboche les employés chez Saputo, il y a aucune logique et les informations informations circule de bouche à oreille, vous trouverez les arabes entre eux, les québécois entre eux, et ....

Started out working in cheese production before they built the new plant and up until then it was half decent with a fair pay and crew size. Went to s#!t immediately in new plant from going to producing 10 blocks an hour to 36 with same size crew being expected to take on 3x the workload for no extra pay and leaving machines half broken during production making us work even harder to point of exhaustion because management was too incompetent to order adequate replacement parts. Also 90% of managers here are mannerless hot-heads with god complexes. Politics played a huge role in me almost getting to keep a bid in a different department longer than 2 weeks because they “forgot” someone with same seniority got their bid in late. Horrible place to work if you like having time for your family or have any self respect.
Chocolate milks and sometimes Gatorade’s to help yourself too in fridge

Thank you for sharing a review. We always aim to deliver an excellent working experience and working conditions. We appreciate that you took the time to bring this to our attention. We'll use the feedback to investigate further.
One of the better companies that I have worked for. Very flexible with scheduling around life style and scheduling. Relaxed atmosphere with a busy day to make your time pass quickly. Overall a great experience.
Saputo inc. est une très bonne compagnie pour y travailler. Il y a une bonne ambiance et les personnes qui y travaillent sont soigneusement choisis... donc c’est une des nombreuses choses qui font la bonne ambiance d’y travailler dans la compagnie.
Good place to work fair pay good benefits coworkers got along well training was good and kept up to date. If there is a saputo close buy I would recommend seeking employment with them to anybody
Always doing things for empoyees

The management has a different view of maintenance than I have ever witnessed before. The don't stock parts very well and they are not willing to listen to another point of view. Especially if it involves the management team to have to invest money. The moto for the shop is run to fail. Moral is low throughout the plant.
Free coffee and tea
Not flexible working hours. Always working holidays and weekends.
I took a Covid test, came back negative, followed the governments 14 day self isolation protocol and when I asked when I could return to work I was told that they were “slowing down” for the winter season and that I had been let go. I thought after 4 months my job would be protected but I guess not. They’re still “hiring urgently” for my position till this day. Thank you Saputo for letting Canadians starve during this pandemic 👍 Supervisors also touch product/employees with their bare hands and eat cheese on the production floor.
Don’t get sick or they’ll fire you.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Saputo?
In my interview I was quizzed on a specific, and proprietary process, at another company I worked at - of course I was vague. The two engineers interviewing me then asked bizarre engineering questions that have nothing to do with anything related to my work. Asked nothing about me or my work experience. Draw your own conclusions. Hired me because I knew someone there I guess. No support on job, engineers missing in action and bizarrely arrogant for all their FUs. Have fun.
Fellow employees mostly ok
You are a number.
good luck getting promoted...All your hard work will be for naught as it is a popularity contest over there. Definitely not worth the drive from London. Many other great plants in the area.
Gustapo like management techniques
always short on paychecks
I had a phone interview right when the COVID-19 pandemic started. The man that interviewed me made it sound like he was going to offer me a job. I ended up not hearing back yet they've been "urgently hiring" ever since but don't seem to think I'm good enough to work in their cheese factory. They even told me to withdraw my virtual reservation.
Waste of time and rude
They’re looking for workers big time. no one wanna work there cause it’s a village,It’s a small town. If you’re a immigrant watch out! The management’s good but the co-worker are racist. I work there for a year and some workers wasn’t even say hello to me!
Overall a terrible place to work. Pay for 40 hours - expected to work 60 hours and told its just part of being management. Amazing when a half wit that drove a forklift makes it to production manager - with little to no education other than drive a forklift - sad!
All that could possibly apply!
1)Very strong politics. You have to learn how to kiss to get recognized, you have to fake yourself. 2)One person died due to covid and 20 are positve. 3)Most workers are related to each other, so expect un skilled people doing their job.
If you do not like fast past environment, this company is not for you.But it is a good company to work for, good benefits, verry well paied, good working inviroment. If you are doing what you are hiered for, you will be OK, but if you try to get smart...... that is diferent story. I personally love working for the company. Have been employed for 16 years and every day I go to work with joy. with with joy
Advantage, stable company with product have been forever on the market and will be there forever
Disadvantage, cold 😀
