I prefer to have not comment of this job, the only that I can say is that was my worst experience in this types of works in my life, no good training, extremely competition between colleagues, nothing to say about the managers they are good persons, but they derogate the the training of the new people to the other workers with more time working there, so they have preferences to the people of the same ethnics, by the way, if you have lucky, you will pass your training the filter if not, they will fired you!... I quit before they take me out.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Discrimination

Don't bother applying unless you're single and very hungry otherwise you will never see your family. Tons of overtime and you have to do it and be sure to sign up to work Saturdays if you're a driver or they won't like you.
Pros

No work training, Extremely rude, rushed on first day, don't give you nor tell you the proper ppe needed for the job when watching chickens. Highly not recommended. They do not provide mask, gloves, or boots for their employees or even water and a washroom.

I worked at Sunrise as a billing clerk for about 1 year. Some things that people may want to know about the company is if you are working in the factory portion of the company, (so where the loading, unloading, packaging, billing happens) they operate 5 days a week 24 hours and about half days on Saturdays. As a billing clerk the hours are a bit strange, you can be the full time morning shift, full time afternoon shift, full time late night, part timer for 3 days of the week with the option of the working the Saturday shift. The saturday shift started at 430am and one person would be off around 10am while the other person was there until the last truck had left (could be 10am, could be 4pm). There is a bit of learning curve to the job as it requires you to be very very detailed, and you should be very quick with a keyboard as if you were to use the mouse to move around you would be way too slow o finish the job at a decent time.
The people I worked with I enjoyed, always had a blast with everyone in the office. The ladies loved feeding me so I cant complain there. Plant managers would regularly come up and they were also very nice and chatty,

Horrible company and management. They are very ignorant and rude to staff and treat them like they are the chickens. No respect period for anyone. And the hours are ridiculous they take your whole life.

If you can tough out production, there is room for advancement and better positions. If you go in with a bad attitude you will have an even worse experience. Get to know the people and it will make it all worth it!

Not a goodplace to work for. Not organized at all and lots of favouritism being played. Workers are not treated fairly . Takes almost 6 years to get the benefits packages and had to write a request about anything and everything, and don’t be so sure if it will be approved.
Pros
No pros at all
Cons
Too less space to mention

Graveyard shift can take a toll on your health, especially working those type of hours in production. It is tough since its straight labor and some parts of the job can feel brutal, other parts not so much.
Pros
Good pay, 40 hours a week with option of overtime.
Cons
Terrible work hours and can;t balance life activities properly, coworkers can be either nice or plain rude.

Terrible employer. Low pay rate, awful working conditions, management are nasty, and scapegoat everyone if they can. You're in a wet, refrigerated environment all day long and breaks seem to take forever to come. And you're there until the work is done, whether that's 8 hours or 18.
Pros
free coffee
Cons
long hours, low pay, no opportunities.
