    I have been working at Canada Bread Company part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The salary is good for the work that is done. Stable company with a strong union. Coworkers are usually competent.

    Cons

    The problems have basically been the same every single day for the last 10 years and no supervisor are interested to put any energy to find a suitable long term solution.

    Pros

    great team work. Great Solidarity

    Cons

    Management don't give any motivation to team to improve themselves. don't give any opportunities to grow.Don't respect them. Definitively not a good experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fired people who have the knowledge of the company and adequate skills mostly when people who stay don't have the knowledge to continue working on the business.

    I have been working at Canada Bread Company full-time

    Pros

    Some of the pros to working here are the wages and that you get to take 2 products home at the end of the shift.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to workers. You get treated like crap and they won't give you a straight answer on anything. The management also doesn't know how to talk to workers (get yelled at, put down, sworn at)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The North Bay outlet needs to be cleaned out. Seems like everyone in management is related to each other and lots of the senior people are related to management. Nepotism is RAMPANT.

    I worked at Canada Bread Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Benefits and working location.

    Cons

    Inefficient, ineffective management, poor equipment and resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need improvement on motivation and direction.. Very unsupportive of rank and file and were very reluctant to improve processes and make the job easier. Used the demands of business to leave staff waiting for improvements. In my case I was contracted employee, ask if I wanted to accept a full time job after one month, then waited 3 months for the paper work to be completed, became full time... then 5 weeks later I was fired.

    I have been working at Canada Bread Company as a contractor for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Duo monopoly. With the right management in place everyone would benefit from the consumers to the employees because Canada Bread is a strong and recognized brand. It's a highly profitable business where no employee or business partnersshould be taken advantage of.

    Cons

    Always thinking of new ways in taking away our earnings. Company employees don't want to admit that things are wrong as they don't want to rock the boat. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your partners.

    I worked at Canada Bread Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    good wage, nice work environment, chance to learn new skills and variety of equipment to work on.
    many chances for advancement.

    Cons

    days off rotate, shifts can be hard on family life for some people. no rotation of shift, if you are on nights you stay on nights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The maintenance department is run as an expense not as a way to prevent expense, work should be done to help efficiency of the higher paid workers (they are the highest paid in the plant). If I was looking at the maintenance group I would train people to do the routine mundane parts of the job and allow the tradespeople more time to prevent major problems by being able to address the issues with equipment directly and not have to waste important time during the scheduled down times.
