I worked at George Weston Bakeries as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good pay for an internship, work was fairly easy, given off when requested (unpaid vacation), some good people working there

Cons

Manager often just have me busy work which I often finished ahead of schedule. Often fight want to spend the time to assign more work to me, or bring me up to speed to learn new posts of the business. Was asked to collect data and projects unrelated to overall goal they were trying to accomplish. Was criticized by manager for seeking out work when he didnt.provide any

Advice to Management

Heard that a large group of senior management was fired after I left...

    Pros

    Good teamwork within the plant teams. Plant Management is good.

    Human Resources team is weak (especially Director level)- not supportive of plant teams and jumps to conclusions without proper investigations.
    HR teams too political- especially when it comes to dealing with Union matters.
