      I worked at George Weston Bakeries full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      -Excellent management-Management know the job well (mostly promoted from the bakery floor), The plant manager at the place I worked started out moving pans between conveyor belts as a teenager. Easily the best manager I've ever had. The rest of the management both provided the necessary support to get the job done and made sure that employees were safe reasonably well cared for. -Union job so the pay was pretty reasonable...

      Cons

      -The work is boring and fairly physical. -shift work, at first you will likely do a lot of night shifts -Your co-workers will be a bit of a mixed lot as the hiring requirement is basically warm, breathing and able to follow simple instructions.

      I worked at George Weston Bakeries (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Some few kind people here and there

      Cons

      Harassment, Abusing, Bossing, Unpaid Overtimes, No knowledge base

      Advice to Management

      Manger asks me to work overtime. Later on when I ask whether I will get the overtimes paid he takes me on a meeting and claims he did not ask for it and I will not get it paid. I refuse to work overtime so couple of weeks later my contract is stopped. Only a day after I have presented multiple automation I have worked on. They don't let me recover my files from my PC since most likely they will also claim my programs...
