Great place to work,was like a big family.They are very safety oriented with the products to ensure the quality of the dairy was the best we could make. And also safety oriented with the employees.So if you are a person who takes pride in your work it’s a great place to work.

Great people to work with, lacking in the managerial department

Great environment to work in, great bunch of guys and gals. seemed to be a dissconnect in communication between upper managment, and the work force. Multiple times things were forgotten, or never mentioned, only to come up later as an issue. Great pay, great opportunities for overtime and advancement.

great people to work with

Can be a very fast pace environment with lots of challenges. Very friendly people to work with. The hours can be very long for management but nothing that cannot be managed.

Great company to work for

Sales and marketing firm in the Dairy industry for the major grocery, department stores and drug store across Canada. The most enjoyable company to work for with fantastic employees. I was responsible for developing accounts to represent our major brand and to ensure its sell thru with a product knowledge training and prime shelf space negotiating. Challenging deadlines with sales projections to attain was what I thrived upon. This was an ever changing fast paced and thrilling work style environment.

Pros

great benefits

Cons

Long hours
