    There are good and bad aspects to working at Niagara.

    QA Associate (Current Employee) Mooresville, NC

    ProsWhat I like about Niagara is that the company is always providing employees with small incentives, such as gift cards & dinners. They also try to foster a work family environment and enjoys creating friendly competition. The pay is not the worst but should be higher.

    ConsSome challenges of working at Niagara is the inability to retain employees. They work the employees that are staying too much. The schedule is 2-2-3 12 hr shifts and too cover the lack there is mandatory overtime on days off. Many work 6-7 12 hr days. and if someone is late or calls in they are given points. These points do not roll off for a year.
    The other problem is the miscommunication of management. It seems they often do not know what they are doing one hour to the next.
    Warehouse system is constantly going down & tracking product is difficult

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to veterans of industry. Implement a different hiring practice and attendance policy. Investigate and determine causes of high employee turnover

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    It's an ok place.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUnlimited hours
    OK benefits
    Cool coworkers
    You get a water sale twice a month.. just depends on the dates

    ConsHorrible bosses

    The biggest caveat.. your time card. They'll screw you out of your OT

    Fast growing company with great learning opportunity, but poor work life balance

    Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsLots to learn, fast pace and fast growing company, great people to work with. Some department have flexible hours or work from home option

    ConsPay is under market standard. Poor benefit package. Very poor work life balance. MBA degree is over rated in this company. Can't keep talented people for more than 2 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's sad when they don't train you right and work the people into the ground

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosthere is nothing good about working here

    ConsI'm training for a job and we work two days on two days off and they tell me to just sit and watch. How am I supposed to watch when I don't know what I'm looking at. They have 4 shifts when my shift is off the other shift is on 12 hours a day with 4 shifts they could easily work 3 - 8hour shifts plus add a weekend shift on too but they want to kill the people with 12 hours and they expect you to come in on your days off. If you work 8 hour shifts you would get more people to do the overtime plus you would get people to stay working there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit killing your people and they wouldn't look for other jobs and quit they would stay with your company. Get supervisors that know what they're doing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great learning Experience with little future in long run

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsPast paced culture .. great learning place and resume builder . You would be handling lot of responsibilities at early stage of career and scope for taking initiatives

    ConsVery high turn over .. not long term career path .. need to know upper management very well for career advancement .. can be very stressful at time .. skewed work life balance

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop career path and take time to develop internal employees instead of outside hiring

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its a good company...... they just need to pay better!

    Forklift Driver (Current Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsThe job security is very important to me an also the management is very friendly and helpful there is always an oportunity to move up so thats a plus..

    ConsThe hourly pay can be alot better and for that I cant give a five star rating...

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe hourly pay needs to be up along side the other top bottling companies. If the pay was as good as the other companies there would be alot more happy employees that would want to give an extra effort.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMust work as a team to get the job done.Each quarter a safety bonus is given to all employees that worked safe each tear.

    ConsIt slows down in the winter months,it's hard to even get 40 hrs in the winter months.Management is out of touch with hourly employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReach out to the hourly employees for their input on things that will affect the employees.Work on offering better benefits at a reasonable cost
