I have been working at Maple Leaf Foods as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The company is very fair with how they treat employees and the work is interesting. Working full-time is a good choice here.

Cons

It is a 6 Sigma company, so work is very siloed. It can feel monotonous or unchallenging at times.

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had lots of free time.
    I also got free lunch everyday and lots of free meat.

    Cons

    I was never given any significant tasks during my 4 month placement. It was clear to after a few weeks that I was hired in error, the department had a tradition of hiring interns and continued to do so despite having literally nothing for them to do. My supervisor made little effort to make use of my talents or even to give me busy work, it was clear that he did not even want to deal me. I'm really not a bad employee and I did not ask for or deserve this type of treatment. My 4 months at Maple Leaf were the most boring 4 months of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has value and potential, tap into it!! Don't hire people if you don't need them, and if you do, find something for them to do, there is always something. Keep hiring co-op students, just make sure to make good use of them.
