I would not recommend this LP
Packaging Technician (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 June 2019
Young Licensed Producer with alarming turnover of corporate staff. Human Resources rep and Manager who I reported to both left during my probationary period. Was told by this manager to go on a rotating shift of 7-3 and 3-11 pm which never happened. This company thinks that rotating shift means that they will assign you permanently to either the morning or afternoon shift and will move your hours to the other shift as their needs arise. This is not the definition of rotation and not the wording in their own contract. Weak Production management team that does not tolerate questions from Team Leads or employees. Management never established minimum quotas for jars or pre-rolls but yet Team Leads push for output arbitrarily. Some employees seem to be content, happy and comfortable. Others walk in and walk out and do not talk to anyone. Experience is different for everyone here. Many do not speak English. There is clear double standard for some ethnic groups and the largest represented ethnic group here is overtly favoured. During my probationary period, I asked for 3 days off due to my mother's death which occurred prior to my employment here. Management asked for proof for these days off even though I am not paid for days off. In hindsight, I wish now I had refused to provide proof as a matter of principle. I was fired a few weeks ago because of "performance issues" but really there are favoured employees with more seniority who are more useful to the current management. My experience here was terrible and if my hours had not been cut at another, larger more established LP I would  more... not have left. TerrAscend is in its infancy and it shows but when an LP is not run by Cannabis experts, your customers will let it show!  less

Changing and Growing at the same time
Employee (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 June 2019
Although only a short time into my employment TerrAscend, I can honestly it has been truly thrilling so far. This industry, the product and the future of it all fascinates me!

The people are great, and everyone is supportive.

A typical day at work is never typical. You may have a plan for your day, but it changes with the snap of your fingers! However, that is what I expected for a young company in a young industry.

In addition to being young and trying to implement processes and even a culture, the company must also adapt and grow with the always changing industry. It can be overwhelming for some.

As for me, I thrive in this fast paced and building/ growth type of environment because I am very resourceful, highly organized and I like to make my own impact and footprint. People who require constant hand-holding have not, and will not survive.
Pros
Being a part of a new Industry, Birthday celebrations, great people, free coffee and hot chocolate and other drinks, team building activities
