    Pros

    fast paced but Interesting. Some employees are great to work with.

    Bureaucratic, company grows through acquisitions but never took the time to work on culture so depending on the location you might find different environment.
    Becoming more and more corporate and less family values and people oriented

    Real Focus on employees, not just to fill a requirement

    I worked at Saputo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unbelievable wage without experience needed. Good training, friendly co workers, easy going supervisors, lots of different shifts day and night, lineancy in breaks.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, unequal distribution of shifts, lots of hiring which cuts even more shifts for training purposes. Bad communication between upper and middle level management. White segregation in favour of the Asians.

    Advice to Management

    No need for so many hirings. Communicate with part timers more, couching, advising, checking them.
