    Pros

    Location, good teams, summer hours, fair benefits

    While the modern Canadian standard workweek lies somewhere between 35 and 37.5 hours per week why are we in the stone age at 40 - more vacation will provide your employees with a better work life balance and less sick time.

    I worked at Weston Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was no formal training provided so if you're a self starter and a quick learner, it will work to your advantage.

    Cons

    Very very toxic environment within the marketing department. The management will pit one person against another and does not promote from within. The turnover in this particular department is very high. You're expected to work evenings and weekends. There is no processes set up internally and its blind leading the blind.

    Advice to Management

    Work on process improvement.
