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.

Work culture has changed for the worse during the years

I have been working at Vaughan Distribution Centre for many years. What can I say? The workplace culture has changed drastically. The people on the floor are friendly and helpful. Yes, the benefits and salary are high when compared to other warehouses, but is the stress at work worth it? There is no workers' union (yet), and management will talk however they want with you and get away with it. Safety in the workplace is promoted officially but ignored in reality if it lowers productivity. Management is considered incompetent by the majority, they don't listen to their workers when they give advice on how to make the warehouse better. You're given a hard time if your work accuracy is not 100%, and if your productivity is lower than what they ask for (which is impossible to meet if the volume is low). Any issues you have are of no concern to them, if you don't work as fast as the fastest worker you are lazy. They have rules that they enforce only when beneficial to them. Overtime is plenty because they have trouble hiring people and keeping people in the workplace. Many people have left this year because of how horrible the workplace has gotten. If you like slaving away, come, otherwise stay away. (Yes, I've been here a while but am not ready to quit yet because of money issues, soon though)

environnement non productif mais agréable

Faire un 12hres de travail, mais qui pourrait être fait en beaucoup moins si le rendement serait au RDV... J'entrais à 16h pour finir à 4h du matin, on entre et nettoye l'équipe du jour qui a produit. J'ai accomplis les lavages de ligne de moulage, nettoyer les bassins qui reçoit le lait pour la fabrication , j'ai démouler et semurrer les fromages, j'ai frabriqué les fromage en étant fromagère, et j'ai aussi fais le moulage des fromages. Et j'ai même fait tout ça dans les mêmes soirées, par manque de personnel. Le plus difficile dans cette usine, c'est d'accepter les gens qui ne travaille pas... MAINS DANS LES POCHES SVP!! Le plus agréable, la paye, ses avantages, avoir des actions SAPUTO

Pros

actions SAPUTO et CELI

Cons

Aucune structure

Challenging, stressful and relaxing

I would say that this place has given me more time to compensate for the probationary hour they say. As a rookie you would really think of how and when to complete your PROB as compared to other company which is around 3 mos. But otherwise, once 2000 hrs is done you would be glad that you have surpassed a long period and reap the benefits the company has in for the employees.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Long prob period

Great company

Saputo is really a great company to work at. Plus the salary is good. Ofcourse there is always a disadvantage to working at any company. But overall it's an amazing company.

Great Atmosphere

Many great things to say about my time at saputo from good pay, employees, salary etc. I definitely learned hardwork due to saputo being categorized as a labour job, I most enjoyed the staff that I shared my experiences with throughout the typical day.

Cons

long hours

Horrible management

Management lies to you constantly, especially HR. HR lies to you and ignores your calls and emails and screws you over if it benefits the company. Supervisors are mostly good though

great benefits

Overall a very satisfactory place to work. The four day work week is a definite benefit. The wage is almost unmatchable for the type of work and amount of education needed.

Pros

4 day work week, good benefits, great christmas party each year

Cons

inconsistent schedule in the beginning years

Work is fun but management not concerned about employees

The pay and benefits were very good but management tends to go for favoritism and not effort and sacrifice. Union is always pro management as well as HR. They rather see you suffer and leave. The ones who doesn't do much effort will always be rewarded as they never made mistakes. Too much politics.

Pros

Benefits and pay

Cons

Too much politics and favoritism

Fast paced work environment

A fast paced work environment, with early start times. The work involves packaging, building and loading skids and crates of product. Using the voice system to receive and collect order IDs and types and amounts of product per order.

Pros

Full-time benefits for part-time employees

Cons

Early start times

Great job in terms of pay and benefits

A typical day here consisted of putting your head down and getting to it. Nothing complicated here: be on time, work hard, and help the team get things done.

Overall a great place to work. If you wanna work hard they will pay wou well for it

I have worked for this company for years and the environment at the plant is changing. It has been know to be tyrannically run but with a few shifts in management it seems to be getting better. This plant is a food producer and as such is governed by the CFIA which means many rules (rightfully so). Employees are to adhere to strict rules surrounding food safety. Typically we (packaging employees) have to wear a white uniform over our outside clothes, safety boots, earplugs, hairnet, bump cap, beard net (if facial hair) and safety glasses. When handling cheese we are required to wear an apron, plastic sleeves, and gloves. Shifts are 12 hours 6 am to 6pm with four 15 min breaks throughout the shift. There is no cafeteria or vending machine to supply you with a sandwich so you will have to bring your lunch. Mandatory overtime occurs frequently so you must be prepared to work any day. Typically if you are a day shift employee you will be scheduled all day shifts, If you are hired full time Shift A employees work Monday Tues Wed (Days) Shift B employees work Sunday Mon Tues (nights) shift C Thurs Fri Sat (days) shift D Wed Thurs Fri (nights) Sanitation comes in Saturday nights. anything after 40 hrs is paid at time and a half. Sunday is time and a half. Very hard to get a Saturday off if you get scheduled to work a Saturday Starting pay is 24?/hr for brand new packaging assistants this can go up to 26.90 depending on length of employment and skill set. 1 dollar and hour extra for back up lead hands and 1.50 / hr extra for Lead hands??? Not a bad place to work. The pay is pretty - 

Pros

Great pay and benefits, you are able to move up through the company if you are willing to put in time and long hours

Cons

long hours on cement floors, repeditive depending on where you work and what line you are on
