Good job, but a little understaffed and the work/life balance can be thrown off by constantly being on call. More suited towards maintenance of existing equipment than new build or installation work.

If you are someone how thrives in production within an union environment Viterra can provide the opportunity you are looking for.

Your primary functions will be to oversee operations and manage staff, but Viterra is always trying to better their installations, be it a port terminal or small country op.


You will be able to oversee multiple system upgrades and work in conjunction with many experienced experts on a local, regional and national level upon approval of most submissions

I spent 40 + years working in the grain industry, most of it with Viterra, it is what you make of it, lots of room to advance, you just have to show the desire, and willingness, avoid all workplace drama, stay positive, it will be a good place to work and you will have a successful career.

They were so slow and I was so bored. Many times I could go for hours with a task. Boring, no advancement opportunity, boss micromanages and is disrespectful

Hard to work for unorganized and don’t know where to put you , to many staff on shift, not enough chiefs that know what your doing all time , especially the marketing manger telling you what to do and he’s not your boss . And don’t do the proper training they say it takes a week and half and the assistant manger comes in and pushes you to get done faster . And don’t get breaks when loading rail cars . And they say you get a hot meal when loading cars you don’t , and I worked with a guy that was there for 16 years and still was a facility assistant and hasn’t gone for training for grading grain , and they tell you that you can move up the ladder went in turn is a bunch of bs .

I worked at Viterra for a year and a half, we worked 13.3 hour days, if it was a car loading day it could be longer. I liked the job, really sucked when they went through layoffs. Also, it was not uncommon to be understaffed during carloading, which meant twice as much work for the people on top of cars.
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
No job security

I've enjoyed working at Viterra. If an Internal position be came available prior to my end date I would apply and stay on.

As a company that answers to shareholders, it's a bit unsettling that any position is open to elimination at any time. It is also unfortunate that seniority rather than achievement is used as the benchmark to lay off employees.

No nonsense work environment which comes with being a contractor. It is a challenging work environment which requires good time management and knowledge.

Enjoyed working here. I worked in a small rural location. It was fairly boring at some of the times, and I had a lot of free time. Which worked well as I had young kids and needed to work shorter days to work with their school schedule, and that was wonderful
Pros
Short work days
Cons
not very busy

Working in a large terminal elevator is dangerous hard work. As I aged I realized it was not for me. I was forced to leave it with a heavy heart. This is a job that is for younger fit people.
Pros
Good wages, excellent benefits
Cons
Long hours working at height and in all kinds of weather

I would have liked better advancement opportunities. This company was bought out by a very large corporation. when that happened the work environment changed. Instead of being a great place to work and help people it became a focus on the dollar company. This was due to the philosophy of the new company. I love to help people and find this company very restricting in terms of caring for their clients.
Pros
Stable environment
Cons
Limited advancement

Early starts during seeding time. Long days and short nights. This provided a feeling of accomplishment when you provided a product and/or service to our clients.
Unfortunately this cut short when company was sold.

Co-workers were generally great, but the facility needed replacing and in was just worn out.
Pros
Staff and clients
Cons
Worn out facility
