I worked for Saputo for a short time, and in that short time I learned a lot, and enjoyed the actual physical work of operating one of the production machines and operating a pallet truck. I got to meet a lot of awesome people and enjoyed being a part of the team and helping the team out. I was always excited to start the day and try to finish the orders as efficiently and effectively as possible. It was physically and mentally stimulating and I loved it. They seemed like they did try to accomodate some issues I had with chemicals irritating my skin too.Unfortunately my employment was cut short due to not being a "good fit" without any further elaboration. I was not aware that they were planning to do this or was notified there was still problems other than some issues that were brought to my attention much earlier in my employment and understood to be resolved. They had me train my replacement in the two weeks leading up to my termination. There was also some nit picking I had noticed by some supervisors where some employees could get away with certain actions where I could not. I had also disclosed on my application and to a specific supervisor I had a disability but they did not acknowledge this except for the one supervisor who tried accommodating me. No effort was given to try and put me into other more suitable duties that may better fit, but instead I felt like I was being treated like I was incompetent. It just felt like they wanted to push me out of the door before my probation was up.
Pros
Free milk, good pay, good benefits, enjoyable work, nice coworkers, unionized, some good supervisors, friendly HR
Cons
Poor communication by some supervisors and the plant manager, exposure to some chemicals that cause skin burns, machines prone to breaking down

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
Pros
fair pay & benefits
Cons
favoritism / racism

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.

You get out of it what you put in. Very physical, steep learning curve, must be self motivated to succeed. Pay could be higher to reflect increases in volume of product handled but having lower volume days thus shorter, makes up for it.

I really enjoyed the work, but found management to be lacking in basic person to person skills. Great pay, great benefits. No real rotation of shifts in certain departments. As for job security, if you want to do factory work you must go into it knowing your a number.
