Revolving door
Sanitation (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON18 avril 2018
They strung me along until the day my probation was up then they tell me im fired and that they dont need to give me a reason. I lost count in the 6 months i worked their how many people came and went. They will say anything to get what they need from you that day then toss you out for a new batch of temps instead of hiring. Their christmas party was pretty good though.
Points positifs
Great co workers, learnt alot about food processing
Points négatifs
Shady management, cold damp work environment

Straightforward, well paying work with great people
Line Worker (Employé actuel) –  Cambridge, ON19 février 2018
Good, solid work, that pays well. You get the chance to work with all different types of people and there's no dress code, which is nice. The employee discount on food is great too, and can be used on a lot of products. Workplace can be a little cold, so dress in layers, and there will be times when you'll have to handle raw meat.
Points positifs
no dress code, good pay and benefits, lots of different people, discount on product
Points négatifs
can be cold, working with raw meat isn't for everyone

Not a bad luck if they don't hire you
Millwright (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON3 février 2018
In three months I worked there to see a dozen of workers disappeared. Some of them quit,some were fired. All the coworkers feel their job are threatened by the new hires so they won't train new workers and they don't care if you can come back next day.

As a new worker you don't have good training but the management force you to work like a mule, they move you to new jobs before you finish the old one then question why you can't finish. This is what they called "hard- working culture".

The management never respect a good worker if they don't like you they will viciously set you up and monitor you in cameras to find your mistake then send you home. I saw a good worker been set up and let go. This is what they called "well-managed".

They do "choose" people. They will let their favorite workers sitting and chatting in office for hours the same time force other workers jump between jobs on the floor.

Not a bad luck if they don't hire you!

Save yourself the time, don’t work here
Assembly Line Worker (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON5 janvier 2018
Unfortunately, grand river foods is a horrible employer. They Lie and say they’ll give you 8-9 working hours a day, but will always cut your shifts short because they want to save money on labor. The plant has a terrible turnover rate, bad smell, and a culture that promotes favourtism and hierarchy amongst workers. Overall, working here is a waste of time, and if you decide to, you’ll see why everyone hates there job and why they quickly run to the door once the shift is over.
Points positifs
Free Parking (couldnt think of any)
Points négatifs
Everything

Good pay for easy work, leaders want to make a difference
Line Worker (Employé actuel) –  Cambridge, ON4 janvier 2018
Been with this company for a little more than 3 years. Leadership changes at the plant have made a big difference. Lots of focus on continuous improvement and suggestions from employees. The pay is great for the work but it's cold -so you have to dress for it. Very interesting to learn the processes if you haven't been in a food plant before. Like everywhere there are people who have cranky days, but for the most part a good group of coworkers. Always overtime available which is great when you want to earn extra cash.
Points positifs
Company ball tournament, good Christmas Party (adults and kids), annual wage increases
Points négatifs
Have to check schedule daily to know shift time (but it's always within an hour)

Racism Is Haunting In House
Operator/Labourer (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON31 décembre 2017
Managements in this company duplicated a lot of disgusting behaviors from Maple Leaf Foods. Don't expect to be treated fairly or equally if you don't belong to the LOCAL category. They are very proud to monitor their employees in cameras every minute whenever you are on the floor ,in lunchroom, in parking lot ,etc to make you feel you are inmates. They keep pretending to offer people permanent positions without any screening then kick them out before the end of your probation to save their business and money.

A small village company
Associate (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON22 décembre 2017
Everything is messy, unsafe and unorganized in the plant from production to construction. Managements are narrow-minded and arrogant like villagers never see the world. You don't wanna eat their food when you see the process.

Not a good place to work if you need permanent job.
Line worker (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, on11 septembre 2017
BEWARE!This company hires you as a full time permanent but they will let you go for no reason, just a few days before you get your probation done! They did ask me to leave 3 days before my probation! They hire people as permanent full time, and let them go before 3 months, that way they do not have to pay for insurance and they don't have to hire you all year round!!!! It saves them money!

Friendly coworkers and with adequate management. Great wages and benefits but the job leaves little free time.
Production Line Worker (Ancien employé) –  Cambridge, ON26 avril 2016
All in all it is a good job that pays well for the difficulty of the work. But the hours can make it difficult to have a social life. Depending on your shift, you can come in between 6am and 7:30am for day shift or between 2pm and 3:30pm for afternoons. A typical workday is 8 hours with 2 paid 20 minute breaks. Each day you are assigned to a line. Throughout the day you are rotated between various positions for your line so you never do the same thing for too long. The work is repetitive but easy and the company of your fellow coworkers is enjoyable. The toll on your social life is really the biggest downside of the job and is purely subjective depending on the person.
Points positifs
wages, co-workers, benefits.
Points négatifs
Hours.

You need to be quick with your hands and able to stand for long periods of time, it is also very noisy and cold. Great learning experience for anyone interested in material handling and packaging. Hours were amazing, Wake up in the morning, go to work, come home and carry on with your day.
