I worked on a short term contract at Sleeman but the experience was fine.
The work environment was relaxed and I had good support from managers

Nothing negative to say

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.

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.

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

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.

Departments work well together. Departmental leaders are level-headed and trustworthy, and support one another when needed. Solid organization, that respects its employees.

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.
Pros
Beer allowance
Cons
Job training was largely self directed through manuals - not hands on

The employees themselves were great and the work was fast-paced and enjoyable. But no matter how hard employees worked we were continuously told how we weren't' working "hard enough".

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

L'oie du nord n'existe plus.
Elle a été crée comme division breuvage de ID Foods lorsque la distribution des bieres a été obtenue pour le Quebec.


Puis en 2000, Sleeman Breweries a acheté sont distributeur L'oie du Nord (et ses employés)


Vous comprendrez que de 1992 (ID Foods) @ 2006 (Sleeman) il s'agit pour moi d'un travail continue sans perte d'emploi.
Pros
Grandes possibiltés d'avancement dont j'ai profité
Cons
Quitter suite a l'achat de la compagnie, une entreprise que j'ai en plus haute estime et avec laquelle j'ai gardé contact.
