None to discuss
At the moment, there isn't much to discuss in regards to this company. There are some difficulties in regards to acquiring additional assistance, but the working environment and the people are pretty good.

My first experience
As a Finance Intern at Smuckers, I had gained experience in accounting and finance. During this time, I was responsible for sorting through over five million dollars of freight and inventory entries on Excel. In addition, I had to track and analyse daily changes in commodity prices and present my findings to the team every month, encouraging a newfound fluidity in my communication methods. My efforts and progress were recognized by my manager and colleagues, my work was extended to include freight accruals, payments, the calculation of purchase price variance and accounting for the foreign exchange impact of international transactions.

just o.k.
The culture is not very professional and there is a lot of socializing going on. The products are o.k. and the processes are o.k. Not many opportunities.

Too conservative
The company's way of doing business it just too conservative. They won't take action and will let a business sink, disregarding all recos, instead of taking action.

The company means well, but the level of the managers and their experience managing people lacks tremendously. If you have a good manager, you are fine. If you don't, you are screwed. It is pretty hit or miss.

Not a good place to work.
Would make employees work days in a row midnights; did not respect shift choice. very difficult work, especially in the summer when it was very hot. Then they relocated to the United States in 2011.
Pros
Provided us with work boots and clothing.
Cons
Long hours, forced midnight shift, would call out of the blue sometimes, expecting you to be at work within 20 minutes.
