It's a paycheck.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management could not care less about their drivers. Our loyalty bonus was cut in half (this was given out in early December) then given out in January so couldn't be used for Christmas. Instead they gave us a pay raise. Except at the end of it all still made the same money, but half a bonus. No communication between supervisors, and drivers. You can write faulty equipment all week long. Don't expect it to get fixed. Delays on farm is standard. The first hour is yours with no pay. Only pay delay after that. Concern is only for product to arrive at plant. Driver safety in bad weather conditions is of no concern.You will make on average $75000 a year. You drive all night. Sunday to Thursday. So getting home sometime Friday. Saturday only actuall day off.

Pros

Steady paycheck, decent dental.

Cons

Saturday only day off, No communication between managers and drivers

It's a job

Cons

Fast paced line production plant that offers decent pay and job security.

Sunrise is a fast paced plant but you will be fairly paid and have job security because they never shut down and never laid off workers. It is a refrigerated plant but if you dress appropriately you will stay warm. There are workers from all over the planet employed at Sunrise and they help those employees that are new to Canada and the English language.

Good bunch of people to work for

Very nice Production Manager and Supervisors. Some stress due to the COVID pandemic, but we all worked as a team to keep the facility safe for all the employees.

Entire management team are completely unprofessional and self righteous!

Management is completely inappropriate and manipulative with no regard to individuals well being.Staff are routinely left to struggle with their responsibilities. New and existing staff are given zero training so that they can never succeed. Then bullied and subjected to harassment from both supervisors and other staff due to inability to perform basic duties which were never explained or shown. Could be a great place if management were replaced with more qualified individuals.

Pros

Full time

Cons

Everything else

Terrible for families

Don't pay enough for the job you do. You are not appreciated from upper management you go do the job and go home forman appreciates you but that is it and he doesn't like the job either so ya it sucks heavy birds all the time 24 pounds a hand.

Cons

Really long hours, Payed travel time between jobs but not payed from your house or after work, back to your house so 2 to 3 hours you dont get paid for everyday.

Pros

Good culture and management

Cons

None

Good place to be at only cause of the people i worked with there

My experience with the Taber process plant was great. And what made it great were the PEOPLE I WORKED WITH!!! From the manager to everyone on the production lines. I'd definitely go back there if there was a spot to go back too.

Pros

Get most weekends off

Cons

Just a very cheap company. No real care for what employees do for the company
Was this review helpful?

Very stressful and time consuming.

• you get picked up at your house then drive out to farm to catch • I’ve learned how to stay motivated and not give up • the hardest part about the job is getting used to being awake all night • most enjoyable part... going home at the end of the day

Pros

Transportation to work site

Cons

Long hours/ very stressful/ takes a toll on your body

Fun and enjoyable

I enjoyed packaging the chicken in the trays so fastLabeling them and putting the stickers it was really enjoyableThe early morning shift was good well organized with good lead hands who are nice to their employees. Incase of a problem it's easy to approach them and solve it so quickly without getting to the management

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

They don't pay for the 1/2 hour break

Not a happy place!

Spent a long time at sunrise. It was nice to work with a lot of different cultures and meet a lot of great people (employees). The full benefits are nice... but while there is some room for advancement the management is very poor and if they don't like you, you will know it. Lots of harassment happens here - and if it's done by a supervisor they won't deal with it or they sweep it under the rug). They try to get by without paying people when they get them to do a job that is above production. (In some cases but not all). They will take advantage of people if they have a "skill set". Normally you'd work an 8 hour shift but most of them your looking at +2 hrs of overtime every day, work alot of Saturdays and while that's great for money you have no time for family. It really drains you. You can see when people leave from working 6 days a week continuously they are sad, tired, but don't leave out of fear and loss of money).Employees don't receive proper training when they are new and because of that they are faced with a lot of stress and get yelled at cause they "can't do it" then either get fired or leave. Supervisors are under paid (compared to similar jobs in the area) and put under a lot of pressure even if it's morally wrong and infringes on workers rights. I do not recommend working here because of the management. The are deceitful, lie and do what ever they can to make a buck even if it's treating you bad. The only good side is benefits, the paycheck and getting to know some really great people that become like family.

Pros

Benefits, culture diversity

Cons

Ridiculous hours, poor management, staff taken advantage of, harassment

Not to much comments!

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
