SHIPPER (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 11 December 2017
I personally really liked working at Weston Foods. It was a decent job with decent people. My only complaint is how they pay there employees. I don't think temporary workers should get paid the same or more than the actual employees. I feel it is because of their wages that they have an inability to keep employees.
applicant (Former Employee) – Cobourg, ON – 2 April 2018
OMG ... the stench! Well I guess a plus would be lost appetite & weight!
Scheduled for interview, got a number to call at the door, but no one answered the in-house door-phone nor the cell number I'd been given for someone to open and let us in. 5 employees came & went on their breaks and said "yep 😃" when we told them - so respect is obviously low on the priority list.
Once finally inside, the smell was even worse, turned my stomach! 3 guys were almost done filling out a wad of paperwork, we were given the same to do; they'd been there for 2 hours! There were wayyy too many too-personal questions before an actual hire, incl. drivers license number! And signing an ok for someone else to drive me to a job site ... ?
We just looked at eachother and said "are you ok with all this?" after 3 pages out of 25+ ... and we left. A good thing, we made a new friend.
We'd have been hired by a temp company, paid less than company/factory employees (by $.50), but would also be the first to be let go during a cut-back. Been there, done that.
Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 23 January 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. Higher management does not care about the little people. They under pay their employees and over work them. Their culture is to curse and use obscene language towards their employees. No amount of money is worth working here, had to work without office supplies and bring my own to work while management is having expensive lunches. This company needs to review how their company is run by those they put in charge. Wake up!

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 12 July 2017
Terrible company to work for , treat their employees like slaves , very rude and disrespectful and the working conditions in Kitchener are terible , noisy , hot and messed up shifts . You do not want to work in management as they will use you and not compensate you , as for this position - who wants to work every Friday night for the rest of your career at straight time with not support
Long hours with no compensation, hot, dirty, unappreciated

Upon completion of the SAN implementation I then was requested to build out a software testing environment and deploy software packaging technology using, newly acquired software and the Microsoft VMM environment which is still in use today.

Nice place to work. Lot of time spending administration rather than actual work. No growth opportunity. Nice place to start your career. But to move further in career one must leave this place and search other opportunity
