    I have been working at Niagara Bottling as a contractor

    Pros

    Things to learn as there is growth

    Cons

    Long term jobs, but as a slave .
    I joined this company and worked only for 1 week . I can easily figure out that there is a discrimination and the manager is trying to scary me out to get the job done . After 10 years of my experience, i feel that i made a terrible mistake joining this company .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please respect the employees or contractors and provide them support so that they will be happy to work

    Constantly running in circles chasing yourself with no management support

    I worked at Niagara Bottling

    Pros

    There are very many hard working people that continously drive for results. The associates work hard as a team and encourage one another. Team members always ask what can I do to help.

    Cons

    The management team is constantly turning over and really does not have a clue at times of what's going on. Management does a very good job pointing the finger at everyone else but lacks the talent to lead by example because they are clueless. The merit program is a joke and they have given their employees 1% raises when they make great profit off of a case of water. The management team is unethical and needs to learn how to manage better. Nothing is consistent in the company. One month you do one way then it changes again but you end up going back to way things were done months ago. Consistency drives better results which leads to less turnover and a higher bottom line. Guess a bunch of people were sleeping when they took that economics class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to senior management is this: you are growing to fast to keep up with the demand of your business. Therefore you can't obtain enough and the right talent to run your business. Since your management is very unethical you need to question this: do you want to keep these people running your business when they don't know what there doing or would you rather pay out lawsuits due to them being unethical. It's up to you to make the change.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Learning about the beverage industry, different bottled products. Multi-tasking duties as a production operator.

    Cons

    When not supporting their staff in advancing his or her education. Company wants the staff to be brownnoser's at their beck and call. Not having a sense of organization for new lines of production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your production and warehouse staff enable have a better company, without these indivduals Niagara would not be successful now. Don't play any cat and mouse games with your staff.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good, caring people on the production floor. State of the art equipment with the latest technology. Good place to get experience in the bottling business.

    Cons

    Young, inexperienced management. Management lacks ethics and professionalism. No work-life balance. Company experiencing severe growing pains. Very high employee turnover company wide. Constant danger of termination for errors. Benefits mediocre at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regain control of your company before growing more. Focus on correcting the root cause of employee turnover before losing this company completely. Employee error is a failure of management.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The workers there are awesome and laid back. Some of them are very hard working and dedicated.

    Cons

    The leadership is worried about one thing only and that is their KPI reports. They don't care or respect the workers. To stuck up their own butts to notice the reason for their high turn around rate.

    The chance for growth in the company is slim to none. You wont be moving up so if you are looking for a career this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example.......you have to show respect before getting respect.

    You can trust HR to help you with management craziness...

    Cons

    Low Pay, Management doesn't care because you aren't from Stockton, CA, and if you can't speak Spanish then you aren't part of the click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at color and more about education. You guys don't have a degree, but three of you do and you try to treat those blacks Very Bad!!! Please wake up before this company is gone.

    I have been working at Niagara Bottling full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with plenty of responsibilities to gain. Compensation tends to be on the lower end of the market. Poor onboarding and training process for associates.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible. Staffing, or the lack thereof, is also equally as bad. If things go wrong, instead of standing up and taking leadership managers at Niagara tend to roll the ball of blame down the hill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring more folks!
