Piètre employeur
Electrotechnicien (Former Employee) –  Granby, QC14 August 2018
Guerre constante entre les patrons et les employés. On vous met devant le fait accompli à quelques jours d'avance. Mauvaise gérance en général. Les cadres mentent délibérément aux employés. Employeur à éviter (vous ne resterez pas plus que quelques mois). Les RH ne veulent pas vous voir (remplissez une feuille, mettez la dans une boîte, et on vous répondra peut-être un jour).
Cons
Les patrons

Great workplace with good values and provides extensive consumer-insight and marketing experience
CATEGORY ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  National Capital Region9 March 2018
The company has a strong CSR commitment and has been a consistent industry leader in North America. I have learned a lot about the industry and the people I've worked with. The company empowers its employees in all levels to be independent and to take accountability for our actions through having a company-shareholder mindset. Working with the company has been enjoyable but at times the stress-levels can be quite daunting as there are many instances that would require for you to work a ridiculous number of hours.
Pros
Good Values, Intensive Industry Experience
Cons
Long Hours

Stay Away Unless You Like Living In A Soap Opera
Assistant Chocolatier (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 December 2017
Its a place that has gone through a huge amount of change in the last 5-7 years. The majority of it isn't good.

The American corporate culture is still wonderful, but Canadian Leadership has implemented and defended a bastardized version of a meritocracy. Doesn't matter what you accomplish or how you do it; if you are not a Leadership pet... you are toast.

Think long and hard about whether you want to work there. Do your homework and ask current employees what they really think. Ask them to be honest. Everyone in this building spends more time watching their backs than adding value.
Pros
Free (albeit old) chocolate and coffee
Cons
Bastardized meritocracy in Canada that will inhibit your career

Interesting Job never the same day twice.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) –  Robinson, IL25 May 2016
I can be working with operators one minute and discussing issues with the business unit leader or plant manager the next. I deal with ingredient issues to resolve to batching system to packaging issues. So I always travel most areas of the plant on a weekly basis. Have learn allot by working with our research and development personnel how the to problem solve candy production issues, batching and allergen issues. I have worked with maintenance, operators, supervisors and multiple vendors and engineers on new line installations, new equipment updates and foreign material investigations to understand all different types of equipment the mechanical properties. I have worked with corporate Quality Regulatory Compliance (QRC) to investigate consumer and vendor complaints. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to talk to all the different levels of personnel from day to day.
