    Problems are not fixed they are blamed on people.

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods

    Pros

    Hard hot work, it is like getting paid to work out. I lost 50 pounds in one year.

    Cons

    A culture of blame. If a problem occurs the way to fix it at Maple Leaf is to blame it on one person, rather than find a way to keep that problem from happening once more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to prevent mistakes by changing operating procedures. Stop blaming people for mistakes, and use the mistakes as opportunities to fix a problem in production. I saw the same mistakes occur on all seven production lines over and over during my year. No changes in operating procedures ever occurred, but many employees were blamed for the recurring mistakes.
    Also senior management at the Roanoke Plant did not live up to the companies core values.

    I have been working at Maple Leaf Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Make your own hours, flexible
    Start at 3 weeks vacation no waiting period
    Benefits also have no waiting period. Deals on product

    Cons

    Lack of communication at times. Benefits could be approved on. Lots of moving parts that do always work good together

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of the little guy
