Quality Control Inspector/ Forklift Operator in Ingersoll, ON
on 30 November 2021
Great place to work but lack standardization of processes

Great people to work with. Fair treatment, Good hours A bit disorganized Lacking support and standardized procedures for internal operations. The location in Ingersoll was seeme4d to be slapped together by head office hired newc people to run it and then minimally supported by distant management which requested top results immediately.

Produce Quality Inspector in Ingersoll, ON

Good pay, decent benefits, shady responsibilities

-Fair pay and benefits for the work -Mixed quality supervisors (1 great, 1 okay, 1 poor) -Pleasant coworkers, just be careful who you trust -Very clean facility Make no mistake, you're there to make their one and only customer money by any means necessary. Everything you're asked to do supports that goal, even if that means being dishonest and exaggerating findings on your inspection reports, in order to provide more opportunity for their customer to gouge growers for discounts on product. Expect extremely shady and potentially fraudulent asks on the regular. They hire individuals with a quality background but treat you like a general laborer. They will never attempt to tap your knowledge or experience or what you may bring to the table beyond being a warm body at a workstation to complete a task. Don't bother taking initiative to help make process improvements or document processes either, supervisors will not be interested, and getting anything implemented feels like beyond pulling teeth. If you value growing in your career as a quality professional or have a strong sense of morality, I HIGHLY advise not working here.

Worked there 7 years and had a blast

They treat you well and fair if you do your job. Pay is great the dispatch team was great and management treats you well if you work with not against them. Also the best team of drivers I have worked with. Equipment is all new and well maintained.

Stay far away from this company

Very poorly managed company. The previous posts of people being pushed to tears is true. This place will ride you like a rented mule until you break. Leadership, which is a dismal failure, is run from the 90's Japanese business plan and whatever psychology book happens to be popular that week. It is irresponsible and blames employees for it's own shortcomings. If you want to be a scapegoat then this is the place for you
