They have great pay and benefits.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Pros

Free coffee and tea

Cons

Not flexible working hours. Always working holidays and weekends.

Toxic Work Environment

The facility has a toxic work environment with little respect for the employee. The management is often petty, concerned more with badgering the employee rather than promoting a healthy happy work place. The big picture is overlooked while personal venda continues. They work almost all statuary holidays with little or no regards for family.

Pros

Pays well

Cons

Working all statuary holiday

Fast pace, long shifts, good pay!

I was a student working at Saputo, the pay was great for saving for my tuition. The downside is very long shifts but work is manageable. Management was very organized as well as professional.

Process was typical for nowadays. Mostly enjoy the job. Not much variety. Very fast paced.

Great wages and benefits, ok management. No real job security. Write you up for any mistake. Always worried about screwing up and being fired. Many family clicks hard to fit in.

Good benefits, but company doesn't care for your family at all. shifts all over ;day, evening , night ,weekends. words like: do not finished .... will be fired in this company is normal , Not coming -will be fired can't stay overtime - will be fired . for this money - this stress. Company doesn't appreciate team work

Great pay, benefits, and opportunity to move up within the company

This job is great if you have a busy schedule and are looking for flexible work hours. The benefits are great as well as the pay and for the most part the people are good to work with. It is 12 hour shifts(only 3 to 4 days a week) but they provide good break times and days off between your shifts to give yourself time to recharge. Management could use some work, which is in progress, and constant changes are coming to the factory which can be good or bad. The best thing to do is go in confident and have a positive attitude and you will have no problems. If you're a hard worker, show respect to coworkers and management then you will fit in here!

Pros

Only 3 days a week and amazing pay for the work you're doing

Cons

12 hour shifts(not that bad but long)

Best Company I Ever Worked For!

Days could be stressful as you needed to balance the needs of the employees and employers. You needed to keep people safe, reduce risk and still remember that this company needs to make a profit. The employees really felt that they were part of the company and incentives were good. They felt valued by the Employer who in return made a great effort to provide a safe, enjoyable, welcoming environment. Hardest part of the job was the balance between employer and employee but it was done! Most enjoyable was working with people who really cared about the job they did and the company they worked for and a company that put out a good product by valuing their employee

Pros

Diverse work environment

Cons

corporate decided to hire a fulltime HR and reduce nursing to one day a week
