Great company to work. Management and team are very responsive, friendly and helpful.
Schedules are different, then you can get experience on different trucks. Every night home.

I started off at WCRL as a receiver which was fun. I worked in a plant so I was always learning something new. The management was very friendly and understanding. I eventually went and got my class 1 and became a truck driver for them. It was nice because I got some good experience behind the wheel and got to learn a whole bunch of different equipment.

Don't see how it's competitive wages when they're unionized and have set wages. This place is unprofessional and very two sided. Safety is definitely not their top priority if at all. Training program is non existent.
Pros
Free cheap ppe
Cons
Everything

On a typical day I would come in to work and then make a round through the plant and talk to all of the process operators and check the shift logs in each control rooms (4) to see how things were running through the last 16 hours.
Then I would talk with the plant shift foreman to see if there was anything that didn't get processed or completed from the day before.

I would then go to my office and complete the payroll from the previous 24 hours.

I would then briefly talk with the Manager and report any problems or concerns from the day before.

Then about 3 or 4 times a day I would walk through the plant and talk with all the employees and see if they had any concerns.

The hardest part of the job was when we would have an extended break down and have product left over we would have to make sure we caught up as the product does deteriorate as it gets old.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was able to show our hard working employees how much we appreciated the good job they did sometimes under pressure and if necessary when they had to stay overtime to finish off all the product especially on Saturdays.

Everyone would always chip in when we needed extra help because of issues.

We had toolbox meetings every month where everyone had a chance to voice any concerns or ask to clarify any issues in the plant.
Pros
Toolbox meetings every month
Cons
We sometimes had to deal with bad odors especially in the summer.
