poor to no training, lots of blame game
Machine Operator/Labourer (Former Employee) –  Kitchener-Waterloo, ON2 May 2018
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

Not bad
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Kitchener30 April 2018
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.
Pros
Wage
Cons
Boring

waste of time
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON20 February 2018
inadequate training, disorganized a lot at times, plenty of finger pointing. and blame shifting. very dirty and messy with cleaning and proper maintenance seems like an after thought. General lack of direction from management in my opinion, poor inventory control set up. Good money the only positive.
Pros
beer allowance
Cons
to numerous to list

awful place to work
General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Kitchener, ON19 January 2016
Waterloo Brewing Co. was just a gross place to work. the machines are old and barely work, glass all over the floor everyday, breaks were not provided properly, and the people hired on were educated about the way the place works more than management was.. also they do not pay enough for the labour of the place. overall it was a garbage factory and a horrible place to work.
Pros
none
Cons
everything
