Toxic management

Pros: co workers in other departments were nice to work with and very helpful. Free beer. Pay and benefits were good. Cons: management in legal department was toxic, micromanager. I missed the red flag the person in the role before me was only there 5 months before they left.

Good low-stress student summer job

You mostly just press a couple of buttons and write some stuff down but if something goes wrong it can get a little stressful. However, the rest of the team is always available to help you and the supervisors are great. You get discounted beer which is awesome. You also get extended breaks when it gets really hot outside which is really nice.

productive environment. management is helpful in getting you started with your job and everyone is willing to help.

Good work culture. I started as Maintenance Co-op student. I came from different background so there was a steep learning curve. However, everyone around you are experts like maintenance planner, senior electrician, plumber, pipe fitter so you can get help and they are very helpful.

Pros

free beer, engaging environment (always in production for beer)

Cons

can be very busy sometimes but rewarding, can be placed in a portable (pretty cold)

Collaborative, Actual Work-Life Balance, Fun!

This organization wants to see their employees thrive, and puts time and energy into developing their employees. Management understands that life happens, Sleeman prioritizes family and work-life balance. It's also a fun industry! Everyone is very passionate about what they do; they work hard and are willing to help each other out.

It was a good place to work as a AZ driver

I worked for 10 1/2 years as AZ truck driver. Things have turned around quite a bit in the last 4 years. New management with new ideas and with new budget.

Interesting business to be in.

Good place to work, can be a challenge at times but I am sure that is common. Some of the shift work can be challenging but they are good at letting you know what you will be working so you can properly prepare.

Great atmosphere!

Great atmosphere. The people were a joy to work with and the beer allowance was quite enjoyable! The pay was very good as well. Having the ability to change the areas I worked in kept the work challenging which I enjoyed.

Productive, fun, yet competitve at the same time

I enjoyed my time working at Sleeman Breweries, management was very kind to me. Any issues or questions that came up would be handled very professionally. My co-workers were very respectful and made sure i understood what the job entailed and that I was properly trained. They looked out for as if I had been there for years.

A growing company with historical roots

When I worked at Sleeman they were transitioning their systems to amalgamate Sleeman with the Sapporo group. There was some great talent on board but still experiencing the growing pains of combining very different organizations and leadership styles. Employees seemed to enjoy working in the plant - beer tastings were a nice perk as well as an allotment of beer for employees to enjoy on an annual basis.

Pros

Free beer and sample days

Cons

Disjointed administration processes

Poor leadership

The management in AR Is not the best, the ability to communicate and lead is very poor. The team itself is small, the office is also small. On the plus side you do get beer.
