Lots of work and little rewards.. take you for granted without acknowledging your hard work.
Good coworkers though but little training provided.. everything is a rush.

This is a horrible company to work for.. they do not respect any of the employees, they run a 2- 3 shift rotation that is anything but consistent.. you will be given next to NO notice.. u will be told on thursday or Friday about which shift u r working next week.. it doesn't matter if u have kids, family does not matter here.. u r expected to comply, and better keep your mouth shut or u will just be tossed out first chance they get.. on top the scheduling issues, the place is cockroach infested on the floor, production area, and in the product itself, seriously.. and once your there for awhile, u notice the offices r cockroach infested aswell, these ones wear suits and call themselves upper management.. go ahead giveaway another $2.1 million..

long hours with no real pay increase even with all the shift they try to stuff down your throat with minimum time in-between shift.... random 12hr mixed in with 8 hr shifts are fun....

There is always something new and exciting happening. A great group of people both on the floor and in the office. Good leadership team, strong director team and a hands-on, young and approachable supervisory team. They try to have fun events, and show appreciation when they can, sometimes its gets so busy your day flies by.

Waterloo Brewing Company at times can be an exciting place to work as each day provides new and unique opportunity, however the beverage industry is highly competitive and can often create tension in the workplace.

Not a very safe work environment. A pallet could probably fall at any given time (and they have). Not to mention that the production and warehouse facilities are absolutely rubbish. They never maintained a clean and safe work environment, and the machines/Palletizers were always breaking down. Benefits were terrible. Pay was average. Don't drive forklift there.

I enjoyed working there. Some staff were friendly. The only down side was the work shift hours and minimal training. Cheap beer for employees! And BBQ parties every few weeks.

I feel they bit off more than they can chew trying to schedule so much while hving so many technical and mechanical issues as well as supply issues having the required materials needed for each job on hand at the production site.

Company does not value their employees.
Upper Management does not provide support.

Extremely stressful environment.

All positions are underpaid.

Do not work here, they will only belittle you.

Absolutely terrible company and disrespectful environment. I applied for a job that paid 35K a year with no benefits (most jobs in my field pay a minimum of 55K. They asked me to come in for an interview then 12 minutes before the interview they emailed me that they had offered the job to someone else. As I was sitting in the parking lot. I emailed. them twice in the morning the day before the interview to confirm that the time still worked for them and they did not respond. Very unprofessional and disorganized company.

The true story is:
1. The salary information was not shared with you.

2. The interview was cancelled 1 day prior.

Busy and fast work environment, always changing.

I never received any positive feedback despite any of my self-motivated efforts and them being aware of my own limitations by my disability, while also having expectations that are not feasible to complete per shift, contradictory instructions. Despite all these negatives, interacting with customers made the job enjoyable, especially those who are passionate about craft beer.

The quality technician role is great for entry level quality and science related positions. It is a great environment to learn a host of skills for future career development. Decent pay and compensation for full time employees.
Pros
Weekly beer allowance and promotional giveaways
Cons
Fast paced, factory environment

There is very little to no training "here is where you work now, watch this person bye". and the company is VERY poorly planned, starting pay is decent but little to no chance of raises in first few years. they constantly run out of materials "unexpectedly", and have little to no regard for the people working on the floor. 6 day weeks mandatory of a pile of months then cant even pull of a 30 hour week for a pile more. Tghe lay people off due to no work, and dont have enough people to get work done a short time later and are looking for people. very messy and poorly organised plant.
Pros
weekly beer allowance
Cons
no training, no planing

It’s basic labour and you get compensated that way. There are some long boring days but you get to keep work and your life very separate and the people are pretty nice.
