However your manufacturing position will dictate how much pressure and stress you feel while working on the floor with stress levels varying from person to person depending on how production is going.

The nature of the work is definitely not for everyone as you will get dirty (but the company supplies uniforms to each employee). The work can be physical and fast paced but is not a problem as long as you use proper communication and teamwork to get the job done.


Despite being unionized, pay and benefits are rated below average to mediocre for newer employees. At the time of this review, the wage progression for new employees is also very slow and lengthy due to the outdated union contract which causes significant turnover rate.

A good place to start
In my short amount of time at Weston foods Maplehurst Bakeries I have had a tremendous amount of fun. The culture and people are one of the best qualities of the bakery. I feel rewarded to earn my experience in the fields they have trained me in. and would stay for it not time for my economic standing to increase. Over all this is a great place to learn good workplace habits as the staff and management will assist in the necessary protocols in a factory environment.

It's not the worst place to work but it could be better at times. Overall the job is a good one. The benefits could be better but it's better than having none at all.
