    I have been working at Maple Leaf Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High level of ethics Decent senior leadership/management Pay is at par with industry Good pension Some level of diversity Cares about the community/environment Top notch company values Decent bonuses

    Cons

    Health benefits are sub-par to other companies Employees don't get as much free products as other food companies The coffee is disgusting Extremely high standards for performance reviews (you can be doing a great job and receive 2 out of 5 stars) Insane work hours - no work life balance Very hard to get promoted unless you've been with the company for at least 5-10 years. Talent management favours tenure over competence/education. You will see a lot of lateral role movement.

  6. "Maple Leaf Review"

    4.0
    Former Employee - General Laborer in Winnipeg, MB

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is plenty of work to go around. You will not miss any shifts, and if you need extra cash there is overtime (pay is time and a half) every week. You also get a free meal voucher with every overtime shift.

    Cons

    The work is extremely grueling, tedious, and repetitive. If you're not in very good shape you will have a very rough time. The work load is such that, pretty much every minute on the job (except for two 15min breaks and a 30min lunch) you're slogging away during your shift.
