Part Time Factory Worker in Mississauga, ON
Good for a pay cheque and friendships, but that's about it.
I have worked for Weston Foods part time now for the better part of 5 years. I can tell you right now that management is great, they are extremely helpful and would give you the shirt off their backs, but that's where the good things about this company ends. There is absolutely no growth or job advancement here. You can make lateral moves between departments and maybe make a few dollars per hour more, but that's it. All the salary or positions with more responsibility are posted for outside hires despite having bright people and post secondary educated employees working here. Partly to blame is the continually worsening collective agreements that just take the life out of the place. New hires can never make the amount of the people who have been here 10+ years because of the wage caps, so while you may be doing the exact same job, you can never make as much as the guy beside you most likely. I have worked in production, sanitation and maintenance and am probably one of the best/most diversely trained employees here, but they're just going to let me walk out the door when the time comes. The turnover is a little ridiculous for all the departments and the wages are low so it's hard to keep the talented people that work hard and that want to work. It's just sad for me to write this because I do like this place, but it has been proven to me time and again, that there is no future here.

Corporate Food Safety Auditor in Mississauga, ON
A dynamic environment where you can be productive and make a difference
I realy enjoyed working with Weston Foods becuase as a Supplier Food Safety Auditor I was being exposed to various food manufacturing facilities, therefore, I had the chance to review numerous food safety management systems and variety of food manufacturing processes. This not only had given me the chance to put my experience and knowledge in practice, but also provided me with a valuable ground of learning.
Very bad working environment
Very poor management supervisor are very rude management don't care if animals were working there they would be treated better than the human work there just a very bad working environment especially for your mental health
