    Pros

    Easy transit to get there

    Cons

    It was very hard to do any work there. People are more concerned with politics than with anything else which made getting any work done almost impossible.
    Also, the environment isn't friendly. The people aren't easy to speak with and they don't welcome new comers- especially if you are a contract employee.

    I have been working at Maple Leaf Foods full-time

    Pros

    You get a pay check every week. You are guaranteed 40 hours a week. You also can get weekends off, that is if you work on days.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the organization at this Company is not good. Machines are always breaking down. Team Leaders are treating the workers very badly.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers, to what they have to say. If they need advise on their position, please give it to them. Also do not go following workers down on how long they took on their break, if it is an abuse of breaks then intervene.
