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...

    I worked at George Weston Bakeries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Excellent management-Management know the job well (mostly promoted from the bakery floor), The plant manager at the place I worked started out moving pans between conveyor belts as a teenager. Easily the best manager I've ever had. The rest of the management both provided the necessary support to get the job done and made sure that employees were safe reasonably well cared for.

    -Union job so the pay was pretty reasonable for a general labor job of the sort (~14/hr). I got a small raise each summer I came back, and could have worked my way up the pay sale more if I'd wanted to stay on part time during the school year.

    Cons

    -The work is boring and fairly physical.
    -shift work, at first you will likely do a lot of night shifts
    -Your co-workers will be a bit of a mixed lot as the hiring requirement is basically warm, breathing and able to follow simple instructions.
