Former Employee - Vice President

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

Pros

The company is full of wonderful people who you are happy to see each day

Cons

Difficult food categories in today’s market. Category declines.

"Associate"Aug 9, 2018

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Canada Bread Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Hardly any at all. Most of the people are good to work with, however the company is very political. If you make it a point, you can leave on time as overtime is not paid. If you do not take days of... in lieu of working on stat days, they will not give you that time off.

Cons

- long hours - if you are a salaried associate then no over time is paid - Paid vacation is only 2 weeks, sometimes 3 weeks if you manage to negotiate that when you join. Even if you are willing to... forfeit a weeks' pay for 5 days off, they are reluctant to let you take it. - most of the Distribution Centers are short staffed and they do not seem to be in any hurry to hire replacements for people who have left (many due to having incompetent supervisors/managers). - you are expected to work every Stat holiday except for Christmas day as this is the only day the DCs are closed. - If any changes happen and they affect your work, time, etc, it is never discussed with you. - there is no coverage if you are away - Many 'Managers' are not trained and you will be lucky if you even receive your year end review. Some Managers are quite rude in their tone as well. Some new 'proteges' have no respect for others and are harsh in their dealings. - The benefits are okay but they can and should do better.

Advice to Management

- Rethink your strategy - you say your people are your assets, then walk the talk! and treat them like human beings with respect and pay people for the work they are doing - rethink your benefits... and increase your vacation if you are not giving stat days off and not paying for overtime.
