Bilingual Accounts Associate (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 9 April 2018
Co-workers were very supportive. Largely self-directed training through the use of manuals. Workplace culture was changing during my employment from a "small family company" feeling to a large corporation culture.
Job training was largely self directed through manuals - not hands on
Accountant (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 6 August 2017
I've been there for 2 years and I have loved my time with the company so far. The people, culture and environment is very good. The management promote continuous learning and are supportive of new initiatives you take on to make internal processes better
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Vernon, BC – 25 April 2017
It's tough to get on full time but if you can make it through the on call time and into the union its a great paying job with great benefits. Company doesn't seem to have any loyalty to staffers though.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 5 April 2017
I worked there for an entire year. Long story short: Management is the absolute worst! They treat their entry level employees like they're disposable rather than coaching them to move up within the company.
Aide-livreur (Former Employee) – Gatineau, QC – 19 April 2016
Une des plus belles équipes de travail avec laquelle j'ai pu travailler! L'emploi était dynamique, demandait une certaine interaction avec les clients et a fait de mon passage une expérience mémorable!

From the time you get in to when you leave there is always something to do, staff is friendly and helpful. Ive learnt that patience is key while working here, as someone who is consistently go go go I love to stay busy, when their is down time I will go and find other things to do to ensure I am staying productive.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 20 October 2015
Horrible current manager who is covering a mat leave position. Swears, does not communicate well, no scheduling skills, not reliable and very speaks very rude .Overall the company has too much favouritism.
a typical day would start early morning ...the first thing was to clean the equipment before the production, I was to have everything up and running by the time the clean bottles came out of the soaker (machine that washes the glass) ,now run the fast pace filler machine ,filling whatever our production was for that day, do checks and data sheets every hour or as required,, working 8 hr shifts and overtime as needed I enjoyed this job very much the coworkers and management were all great to work with ,no issues of any kind ,,also did the monthly inventory on product I lost my job after the plant closed down ..November 2013..
Was head brewer (Former Employee) – Dartmouth Nova Scotia – 5 December 2013
My day started at 3am or 10 am. I always got along really good with the management we were close. I worked with all kinds of different people who made the place really easy to come to. The hardest part of my job was getting up at 2am and working in very hot conditions. I've learned working there that it takes a good team of people to make a business succeed. The most enjoyable part of my job was I had a lot fun with the people I worked with and 16 years just flew by.
Always feared the place would be closed and it did
Material Handler/Shipper/Receiver (Current Employee) – Warehouse/ guelph ontario. – 21 November 2013
A typical day consists of loading and unloading of beer and materials neccesary to perform the production of beer. I've learned how to multi task and work in a fast paced environment, with safety as the first priority. I work with a great crew of people who respect each other, safety and the company. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing Sleeman Brewries care about there employees and there well being, unfortunatly due to business decisions related to logistics they have had to make some personnel cuts.
Receptionist/Accounts Receivables Assistant (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 20 September 2013
I enjoyed my job at Sleeman Breweries. My job included a variety of different daily tasks that kept me on my toes. It allowed me to learn a lot of skills that i can take to my next job. I know how to use Oracle R12, Moneris solutions, I have a knowledge in the sales department, and customer service department. I had wonderful co workers and we all helped eachother out. The hardest part of my job was managing reception duties while performing accounts receivable duties in front of customers, however i believe i was able to balance these duties the longer i was employed there. I liked being busy and efficient. I really enjoyed working with so many wonderful people and gaining relationships with customers. There is however, little room for advancement at this company and i look forward to taking what i have learned, and advancing at my next role.
wonderful co workers, introduction into the sales world
