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

    Pros

    Pay is good. Only 4 day weeks , 9.5 hour shifts. Co workers are a great bunch.

    Cons

    Little to no work when you're first hired. 2000 hours to pass probation, they don't need a reason to let you go before this is up. Schedule is only one week in advance so planning anything is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees properly. It seems there's a big disconnect between management and employees.
