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.
Pros
Free Bread, Flexible Hours, Good Management, Good Area
Cons
Zero Growth Opportunities, Zero Raises, High Turnover

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.

You're a number there, plain and simple. Horrible hours, and poor conditions. Upper management is about dollars and cents, and if you don't fit into their clique you're screwed if you are in a position above the hourly production staff

The place is so ghetto. Not clean environment, safety is of no concern to management and the baking supervisors are just awful. Anything else is better. The pay is just awful because the old employees who are nearing retirement locked in a wage that didn’t matter and now it’s stuck for 4 more years. Half the employees don’t know what they’re doing, they only got the job because theyve been there forever and they’ve been there forever because the union protects the lazy man. The level of Unprofessionalism is simply unreal. If you wanna be talked down too and yelled at for having an opinion this is the place for it.
Pros
The people

The management and the staff were super friendly which helped adapt to my first year in Canada. I learned a lot about the Canadian style/way of food production which was an exhilarating experience. I will definitely recommend working at Weston Foods to anyone.

Worked there for a short period of 9 months after my Level 1 pre - employment training . That time they did not provide tools to work, so had to buy all tools, and even drill bits had to bring from home! The pay rate was so low($15/hour at start, and $1 rise after few months), so haven't think twice to leave this place for a better pay. Learn there a lot, work need to be done quick, follow GMP and safety rules.
