      Pros

      Free beer alotment, OT fairly abundant, coworkers for the most part a good,

      Cons

      Poor management, low moral and a toxic work enviroment as a result of lack of experience of management. Contract year which is now past due and not alot of progress shared, wages and benifits are way behind the rest of the industry. Little to no training in the 4 years that i've been there.

      - Work/life balance - Everybody works for themselves - Pay/benefits is not good - company hires freshly out of school candidates with no experience, underpays them on contractual terms - no feedback / one-on-one from management - find who’s guilty mentality, not find the solution - dirty environment - cost cutting everywhere

      Pros

      Job stability and $1000 of free beer... a year lol

      Cons

      Management offered zero training or onboarding. They did not offer any remote working flexibility. The Planning team's managers don't care about you or helping you succeed. the benefits are way below standard compared to industry and Labatt has a work first and foremost and nothing else culture. This is not the place to grow or settle.
