Supervisors are sloppy and pick favorites.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
they aren’t hiring yet have a shortage in workers. Treat skilled workers as slaves and make them endure heavy labor hours with lack of appreciation.

Free milk, good salary

Cons

No work-life balance

Extremely draconian - production manager suffers from Napoleon complex.

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!

Pros

None

Cons

All that could possibly apply!

Productive workplace

The most enjoyable part of the job is you always learn things everyday. A multi cultural company that adheres on the strictest safety precautions for individual workers.

Poor

You are a replaceable# subject to days, evenings, nights with little to no notice, suited for young strong single or the majority immigrant workers that just won the lottery at 19 an hour.

finish your life's all enjoyments

You loose, all your family enjoyments (unless you are a workaholic). Your language proficiency and your experience in this country as a new comer, will be exploited in a way that you feel stressed and disappointed.

Pros

No pros to say

Cons

Numerous cons

GREAT job for skill, TERRIBLE TERRIBLE cooperation

I worked in the Calgary plant Wearhouse and LOVED the job I learned ALOT and genuinely liked the job, fast paced, lots of learned skill and good money , but TERRIBLE people to work with! Management does everything with political fear and intimidation and never was I bullied harassed and put down so much before not to mention continually picked on and a victim of racism. The union...... ....... ....... Useless !!! Terrible place to work !!

Pros

Good money, learned lots, met a few good friends

Cons

Politicly motivated fear, bullying, harassment, long hours

Fast based production plant

Depending on area, it is typlical setup as well as production planning for the day. I learned many skills by being flexible and put in many different production areas. I was also able to acquire my pasteurization ticket for high temp short time pressure systems. Workplace culture is pretty much typical production facility, with many employees. Focus being production while being safe as well. The hardest part of job can be the shiftwork. The most enjoyable part of job is learning new tasks, as well as employee incentives.

Pros

Incentives and wage increase

Cons

Shiftwork

A good place to work overall

The day shift tended to get away with a lot when I was there. They did enough to get them by then left the rest for afternoon & night shifts. Lots of room to move up if your willing to learn the ropes though.

Pros

Good job security, free milk & long hours

Cons

Long hours

great place to work when I started then changes in management and it went downhill from there

I loved taking calls and speaking to customers. Management was on your butt if you left your desk even to go to the washroom. And got on your case if you were 1 minute late.

Pros

free dairy stuff

Cons

strict management

This was a mistake

It is difficult to find the correct words to describe Saputo but the culture is toxic and the general manager works with a very obsolete mentality thinking that it is correct to treat people without respect. It was a terrible mistake to work for Saputo and in the brief period of time I worked there it was sad to see other managers being terminated or resigning after the job impacted their familiies and even their mental and physical health.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

The work culture is toxic and unhealthy
